Here at il Centro’s School, we worked hard to move our classes to a distance learning format in response to the Coronavirus situation. When we closed il Centro as a proactive precautionary measure against COVID-19, we decided to move our classes to an online format. The fact that many students and parents decided to follow us in this new adventure is proof of our teachers’ creativity and talent.
Today, we are delighted to announce some exciting news about our offerings for the Spring Session.
Registrations for the Adult Online Spring Session (starting on April 14th) are open. The spring offering includes our usual Beginner-to-Advanced Italian classes, as well as specialty courses such as Conversation, Impara l’italiano in Cucina and Impara l’italiano con le Canzoni.
All of these classes will be delivered online via Zoom.
On a final note, we’re sure that you miss visiting il Centro as much as we do. For this reason, we want to reassure you that, as soon as we will be able to reopen our facilities, we will return to an in-person format for all of our courses.
We hope that our courses will bring some relief and distraction in this challenging moment.
Stay safe, and we hope to see you in one of our online courses!
