Parlo un po’ di Italiano!

Beginning in January

Conversational Italian Language Class

MONDAYS, January 9 – April 24

11:00 am to 12 Noon – at NIAF, 7035 Airport Rd., Naples, FL 34109

The Conversational Italian Language Classes are Free to members;  Non-Member fee is $100 per person for the series.  Carla Menza, instructor, is a native Italian fluent in both English and Italian, and has taught our series for several years.  The class assumes you have some Italian vocabulary, and practices using your word in everyday conversation.  Students will learn additional words and some grammar as well.  Classes will be held on MONDAYS at 11 am and will last about 1 hour. The series begins January 9 and concludes April 24, 2023.

One of the objectives at the Foundation is to provide Italian language studies at various levels.  Generally, Beginning and Conversational Classes are offered.

Lessons in ten week sessions for members are free, nonmembers $100.00.  They begin in January and end in March.

Beginning Italian Class

THURSDAYS, starting January 19

1:30pm to 2:30pm – at NIAF, 7035 Airport Rd., Naples, FL 34109

Marilyn Romeo, a long time member of NIAF will lead the class. You will learn a little grammar and some new words. The course is designed to be a fun learning experience rather than a structured classroom. Students will practice simple conversations. Classes are held Thursdays at 1:30 and will last about one hour. The series started last summer, took a break for the holidays, and is now running indefinitely. It’s the kind of experience that you can skip a session or two and resume easily.

This beginning Italian Class is Free to Members, and $100 for non-members (for 1 year)

Check the online calendar for all class and event dates, times, and descriptions.
