Italian ranks as the fourth most studied language in US colleges and high schools, where the enrollment rate for Italian classes is growing 20% faster than for any other language.
Over the centuries Italian has come to merit its reputation as the language of art, love and seduction. Could Romeo and Juliet have spoken any other language?
The majority of students of Italian are fascinated by the musicality of the language, the simplicity of its sounds and the charm of its words. When words do not suffice, Italians are masters in the use of hand gestures and facial expressions, which break down all communication barriers.
