(stay tuned for the next class planned for this fall)

Casa Italiana is excited to announce our next Italian language class onsite! We’ve teamed up with Gabriella Vizzutti (pictured below), professional Italian tutor and certified teacher to host a beginners/travel Italian class, in person, at Casa for eight weeks in June and July. Whether you’re new to the language, or very rusty, or just took the onsite class with percorso, this is the perfect class for you. Read on below for more information and how you can sign up! Please sign up by May 20 to secure your spot.

Beginner/Open Level Travel Italian – Eight-week class

Have you taken a little Italian in the past? Or are you new to the language? This class is for you! This mixed group of beginners and newer-level Italian speakers is great to get back into the language or if you’re planning a trip to Italy.

Students will be introduced to grammatical concepts and situations, and will be speaking in Italian at the first lesson. Each class will end with an opportunity to informally chat with each other and ask questions of the instructor to clarify or practice new concepts. Gain the tools for confidence in Italian travel: introducing yourself, ordering at a bar or restaurant, asking for directions or information if you get lost, understanding directional signs.

This class is for students who have little or no exposure to Italian. It is ideal for anyone who isn’t ready to commit to long-term Italian study but needs an introduction to the language before a trip to Italy.


Class will be taught by Gabriella Vizzutti, professional Italian tutor, at Casa Italiana at 13028 First Ave. S., Burien WA 98168

Cost is $275 per student which includes the eight weeks of instruction.

Class will begin promptly at 11am and finish at 12:15pm on the first four Fridays of June and July: June 7, 14, 21, 28; July 5, 12, 19, 26

Class will be 11am-12pm with the remaining 12-12:15pm minutes for informal conversation, practice, clarification, and re-cap.


All handouts will be emailed to enrolled students before class. Please bring with you to class something to take notes on, such as a notebook or a laptop. You may print out the handouts ahead of time, or pull them up on your laptop during class.
