Parla Presto offers Italian language classes and guided trips to Italy. We're in Jamaica Plain and since 1997 we’ve taught more than a thousand Bostonians to speak and understand authentic Italian – many of whom have traveled with us to Italy – using their new language and cultural knowledge to experience a true Italian adventure.

Our motto “dillo e basta!” means “just say it!” – we guarantee that you’ll have fun. From day-one you’ll learn authentic Italian through gentle and informative immersion into everything Italian – language, news, culture, food, fashion and more. Our classes are small, so regardless of your pace or ability, you’ll get all of the individual attention you need. And if you’re like many of our students, you’ll make some wonderful new friends along the way.
