Please join Josephine Belli and Italian American Committee on Education (IACE) every season at the Columbus Citizens Foundation townhouse for Italian classes with a focus on conversation and exploring lesser known parts of Italy and their unique cuisine. We are delighted to offer the following courses, taught by highly respected and experienced teachers:

Beginners 1: For students who have little or no knowledge of Italian.

Beginners 2: For students with at least 2 semesters of Italian and are ready to move on to past (passato prossimo), imperfect, and conditional.
Intermediate 1: Continuation of Beginners 2 with added emphasis on speaking.
Intermediate 2: Advanced grammar and conversation.
Advanced: For those who have taken all grammar classes and are interested in fine tuning their speaking skills.
