Imagine being able to order authentic cuisine with confidence or communicate with colleagues overseas with ease. Take an Italian short course at City, University of London and you can achieve exactly that.

Taught in small groups with plenty of interaction and one-to-one support, our courses will teach you not just how to speak Italian, but also about culture and current affairs in Italy.

We have something for everyone, from beginners and beyond and offer both face-to face teaching at our Central London University campus and online classes. We’ve divided each level into three parts – our classes start with the basics, progressing to more advanced topics as you grow in confidence and develop your skills.

We have start dates in October, January and April/May. If you want to see if Italian is right for you, you can start by enrolling on one part, or join us for the full year.

The secret of learning a language? It’s all about confidence.
