PLEASE NOTE: As Il Centro is currently closed as a proactive precautionary measure against Covid-19, both Children and Adult classes are being offered online via Zoom until further notice.
Our mission is to promote the Italian language and to share it within our community. With over thirty years of experience, Il Centro is now an integral part of Vancouver’s Italian cultural and educational landscape.Our Italian Language School offers eight different levels of courses for adults, from beginner through to advanced. We also provide two courses entirely dedicated to conversation as well as customized courses for travelers. A unique educational opportunity is also available through the Study Abroad Program. This program enables our students to experience a memorable and enriching learning experience at institutions recognized by the Italian Ministry of Education.
For adults, we typically offer fall, winter, spring and summer Italian courses that combine language and culture.
Il Centro is also proud to be the only school in the Vancouver metro area that provides a full range of courses for children and youth (age 2.5 to 16).
These unique Italian courses run every Saturday and various times during the week through our Outreach program allowing for continuous and structured learning throughout the school year (September – May).
For any inquiries regarding the School, please contact Edda Onesti at (604) 430-3337 ext.239.
