Why Conversation Skills Are Important When Learning A Second Language?

An important aspect of language learning regards the cultural differences that affect what people do during conversation, the non-verbal cues or what’s not said when people are talking to each other. These can be much harder to learn and are not usually covered in a textbook. Things like tone of voice, facial expressions, gestures (especially in Italian), body language, and eye contact are part of a language. It’s not always about what you say, but how you say it. Conversation classes may help you understand why it’s so difficult for you to feel comfortable speaking Italian also if you already have a good knowledge of the grammar.

Why study Italian at the ICCC.

The Italian Language School at the ICCC is a professional institution that teaches and promotes the Italian language and culture. Italian language classes are held year-round for adults and children and range from beginner to advanced level. All our teachers are native Italians and highly qualified. Their loyalty to the school and our programs is rewarded so as to guarantee a quality standard and promote a common goal of continuous improvement. The Italian Language School is the only Institution in town recognized by the Italian government. We follow the European Framework of Reference (CEFR) for teaching Italian: each course develops skills of speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Our classes are organized into levels ranging from complete beginner (level A) to most advanced (level C). Each level consists of seven sessions each one of seven weeks. Students meet once a week for two hours. Our group classes can be both online and in-person and they take place in the late afternoon and early evening. Daytime classes can be planned, if requests meet the required number needed for a class. A minimum of 4 students per class is required. Class size is limited to 10 students to ensure each person has the opportunity to interact with the group and the teacher. 


Members of the ICCC get a 10% discount on tuition for group courses only. There is a one-time $25 non-refundable registration fee for first-time students. You can sign up for our classes either on Eventbrite (See below) or by calling the office. Tuition can be paid by cash, debit card, or credit card. Payment in full must be made before the beginning of the class.

Refunds: No refunds after the beginning of group classes. All purchased hours of private and semi-private classes must be used within 6 months of purchase.

Cancellation Policy: Due to limited seating, we request that you cancel at least 48 hours before the course begins. This gives us the opportunity to fill the class. You may cancel by phone at (713)524-4222 ext. 7. If you have to cancel the course, we offer you a credit to your account if you cancel before the 48 hours, but we do not offer refunds. You may use credits towards any future group course. However, if you do not cancel prior to the 48 hours, you will lose the payment for the course. Your tuition will be converted into a donation. If the course is canceled for any reason, including insufficient enrollment, tuition will be refunded in full. After the first day of class, no refunds or credits are allowed for any reason.

Italian Conversation Class - Intermediate/Advanced Level

Starting Tuesday, August 8

6:30 to 8:30 PM

starts from: 120

The Teachers at the ICCC are Attentive, Knowledgeable, and Nice Also on Zoom!

Dear ICCC, I’m thankful to you for providing the opportunity to continue to learn Italian online through these difficult times. I think a platform like Zoom works great – we can see and hear each other, as well as see what the teacher writes on the “whiteboard”, share the screen, listen to the audio and watch video exercises. The quality of the class didn’t diminish by going online. Of course, I miss the beautiful atmosphere of the Milford house and live human connection, but I enjoy not having to commute to the class. The teachers at the ICCC are attentive, knowledgeable, and nice. Learning Italian online is a great opportunity to switch off the daily stress and transmit to the Belpaese. I highly recommend giving it a try and discover a world of Italian beauty!

About ICCC Online Courses

Customized Material in Advance and is Very Attentive

I have been taking online private lessons for a month, with a positive experience. I have learned a lot thus far and already feel the progress. The classes are organized and complete. The teacher sends the customized material in advance and is very attentive. The school coordinator is easy to reach and happy to provide advice. Both the teacher and the coordinator are a pleasure to interact with and are readily available.

Italian Online Private Lessons

The Teachers are Very Dedicated to Teaching!

I am studying Italian at the ICCC since last August. When this Pandemic started I didn’t want to stop studying because the classes are so interesting and fun. Luckily, the ICCC began classes online. It is an excellent option in this situation or for any person willing to learn a language and does not have enough time. If someone is looking for a place to learn the language or needs to be at a B1 level to ask for the Italian citizenship, without a doubt the ICCC is the place. The teachers are very dedicated to teaching. I had Alessandra and she was amazing. Nowadays, Giulia is my teacher and she is also great! I deeply recommend the ICCC for Italian classes.

The Italian Cultural & Community Center has been extremely supportive throughout my Italian language learning journey. The courses are organized and well planned. My one-on-one instructor, Katia, has been exceptionally supportive and flexible with my work schedule. She continues to challenge and encourage me during our sessions.

Italian Private Lessons - 2023

Enjoy a Good Dose of Culture and History of Italy

I would like to take the time to thank the ICCC for the great work that they do for their members and students. I have been taking classes (both group and private lessons) for about a year and a half and my Italian language skills have improved tremendously. I would like to thank Giulia Iasoni in particular; as you know Giulia is our coordinator and teacher extraordinaire. She is very patient and utilizes innovative, and more importantly, fun methods that make learning the language dynamic and never boring. It is not just about the language per se but also a great dose of Italian culture, taught by a native speaker. She always keeps things fresh and is willing to adapt to the student’s interests. I highly recommend taking private lessons with her. Also, she does a superb job in evaluating and placing students in an appropriate course level which is a very dynamic and evolving process as some students may progress faster than others. I would also like to thank my current teacher, Alia, who is also motto brava, simpatica e paziente. She has been doing an amazing job with online sessions and was able to move us seamlessly into the virtual classroom. I am also impressed by how the ICCC was able to rise to the occasion and promptly switch to online classes due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While it is nice to go to school physically, the online classes are as effective and honestly, very convenient. Insomma, I highly recommend the ICCC to those hoping to learn this beautiful language and at the same time enjoy a good dose of culture and history of the bel paese. Keep up the excellent job!
