In 1984, the Italian Language Program was successfully initiated in Seattle under the directorship of the local chapter of the Dante Alighieri Society. Since that year, the Italian Language Program of the Dante Alighieri Society of Washington has grown as the ideal place to learn Italian Language and Culture in Seattle. Our classes are held on the campus of Seattle University. However, the Dante Alighieri Society - Italian Language Program is a self-sustaining autonomous program independent of Seattle University.

Classes meet twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
La Scuola Italiana is a small, intimate Italian language school located in Belltown. As an alternative space, it offers affordable language instruction and small class sizes (8 -10 students per class), in downtown Seattle, WA. Each students development is followed closely. A strong grammatical foundation is established while discussing customs, traditions, travel information, food, wines and integrating personal interests/goals. A common cause of frustration in language acquisition is the lag-time between student/teacher interactions caused by large classes. A smaller class size allows more individual attention, less delay and allows students to address individual issues the moment they occur in his/her learning.
