I truly loved having Ilaria as my professor. She was so kind and made the material (although very fast-paced) feel doable and organized. Would highly recommend if you want to learn Italian or go abroad!

If you are willing to put in the work every day (1hr minimum), you will learn the Italian language in three months and have a good enough base to enter 251 and cruise. If you've ever wanted to learn Italian, this is your ticket.
