Our winter classes will be held in-person and online via Zoom.

Parla italiano come un italiano!

Impara a dire cose come “È fresco?” o “No, costa troppo”!
Learn to say things like "How fresh it?" and "That's too much!"
Parla con la gente del luogo mentre giri per la città…

Impara a chiedere informazioni… anche se sei un uomo!
Learn to ask for directions – even if you're a man.
Divertiti come si divertono in Italia!
Party like an Italian!

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.

Winter 2022 Schedule

Our next 8-week session begins the week of January 17th, and completes the week of March 7th, 2022.

The cost is $320 and a non-refundable deposit of $150 is due when you register.

Given the mask mandate in Boston, all classes will be held on Zoom. In case of a later policy change, in-person classes will be approved by the majority and will be open only to fully vaccinated people who will show proof of vaccination.
