Italian Language Classes

The Dante Alighieri Society

The Dante Alighieri Society of Washington has been participating in Festa for 33 years. One of their most popular activities is a series of Italian Language Classes hosted on Seattle University Campus (now online only) and taught by qualified native speakers under the coordination of Prof. Giuseppe Tassone. Fall quarter begins on October 1st with four levels of Italian from A1 to B2. Here are some samples of their online classes this past summer.

Domenico (“Nick”) Minotti, Consigliere for the Dante Alighieri Society of Washington, has even created an Italian Food Quiz and Presentation
