All of our Italian teachers are skilled professionals with Master’s Degrees or TESOL certificates. ILI is also a teacher training centre, which means ILI’s staff are always mindful of the latest approaches to Italian language teaching, making your life as easy as possible.


“The instructor’s sunny attitude, the fact that she usually speaks to us in Italian unless an explanation in English is appropriate, and the interactive exercises she creates for the class helped me in the learning process.”


Check Your Italian Level

Unsure of the level you are at in the language you want to learn? Don’t worry, we are here to help.

Ask Samira for an assessment in the language you are interested in. She will arrange an appropriate instructor to assess you in a 5-minute conversation, and then when you register for a course, we can place you in the class that will be best for you.

If you are a zero-level beginner, you’ll start in our Level 1 class, so need for an assessment.
