At Italian School NJ, conversation skills are a priority for both our staff and our students. Having encountered many adult students who were frustrated with their lack of fluency after years of study, we devised a curriculum that gives priority to conversation, while concomitantly enhancing the conceptual understanding of the language through a thorough explanation of the grammatical structures. 

Our goal is to create an encouraging environment to learn the Italian language by providing small classroom sizes (7-8 students at the most) and individual attention to all students.
