Italian Language

Cultural Conversations

Beyond words

If you’ve ever seen a musical score, you might’ve wondered where words like adagio (slowly) and allegro (lively) came from.   

They’re Italian verbs, which goes to show you that Italy’s cultural heritage goes way beyond Michelangelo.

Learning another language can lead to understanding in other areas as well, a plus in any career you’re considering. And the credits you’ll earn in our courses will transfer legato (smoothly) if you’re considering earning a bachelor’s degree.
