Italian is the common ancestor of romance languages and is often associated with art, design, the most beautiful architecture, operas such as Puccinis and Verdi’s, fascinating movies such as Fellini's, Visconti's and Pasolini's, the most fantastic cities such as Rome, Venice, Florence and for the more adventurous the mountainous regions of the Alpes and Dolomites, Italian Lakes and fabulous Coasts and Islands.

Discover hospitable local people through their melodious and romantic language, their culture, their amazing love for food and wine and hold your own in conversation with them - develop competent communication skills in formal/informal social settings, travel and work situations, hotels, restaurants, cafes and shops.

Maximise career opportunities in diplomacy, research, science and business. Italian is spoken by over 55 million people in Italy and 62 million people in the world. Six of the 100 largest global companies have their headquarters in Italy and jobs in Italian businesses are lucrative.
