Giuliana is a wonderful teacher and guide for Italian language and culture. I really enjoyed our small class and she managed our different levels of experience very gracefully. We all learned a great deal over the course of a year together and we miss her immensely!

Giuliana is the most patient and encouraging teacher that I have yet encountered. She truly strives to make Italian entertaining as well as simple. Prior to my lessons with her, learning a whole new language seemed to be a daunting task, as well as the seemingly insurmountable goal of losing my native accent while speaking. Through our online lessons, she has taught me grammar and a vast vocabulary that served me very well in my trip to Italy. If there is one teacher who can truly teach the language quickly and easily, it's Giuliana.

Pasta. Pizza. Spaghetti. As Americans, we're pretty familiar with Italian food. But do any of us know the language? Do you know the difference between when you should say "bravo" or "brava" in a concert? Whether you need help for an exam, or are about to study abroad, I'll help you learn Italian and improve your pronunciation so that you're ready to go!

Italian Lessons in Brooklyn, NY

By Giulio G. - New York Italian Teacher

If you would like take Italian lessons in Brooklyn, I am Giulio, and I would be happy to introduce to you some local NYC resources. Whether you are an Italian culture lover or just planning to visit Italy soon, New York City is surely the best place to start learning this fascinating language, full of history. The best way to learn a new language and become more confident is to become immersed in the Italian community. Thankfully, if you live in Brooklyn, you don’t need to take an eight-hour flight to find Italian speakers. You can study right here in New York while having fun and making new friends!

Check out these exciting events and interesting places in New York that will introduce you to the Italian language and culture:

  1. Little Italy Little Italy has many original Italian stores and restaurants. When many of the first Italian immigrants reached New York City, they lived in this part of Manhattan. Each year, during the last two weeks of September, they celebrated an authentic, religious feast called the Feast of San Giovanni to make them feel as though they never left their home country. This celebration survives today, enticing Italians and non-Italians alike on Mulberry Street in the original Little Italy neighborhood. Here, you can also find the Italian American Museum, situated on the corner of Mulberry and Grand Street. You can learn about the plight of Italian-Americans and their contributions to American society.

  2. Clubs and Events New York City has more Italian clubs than you could ever imagine! To name one, New York Italians is a non-profit organization that strives to retain the rich history and culture of Italians. According to their website, they offer cultural events, culinary programs, language classes, educational lectures, and charities. You can see all the exciting programs on their website, www.newyorkitalians.org.

To check out a whole calendar of events in New York City, go to www.iitaly.org. This website is brimming with great cultural activities that guarantee your immersion within the Italian community. For example, you can find lectures on Donatello’s sculptures, modern Italian art contributions, Italian food meetings, tourism, and much more. Usually, there are about three to four Italian events per day.

Another way introduce yourself to the Italian community in New York City is the Italian Institute of Culture in New York, or Istituto Italiano di Cultura di New York. They’re open to the public during the workweek and also have a website www.iicnewyork.esteri.it. Here, you can find a calendar of events, language courses, an online library, and opportunities for members.

  1. Eataly Lucky for New Yorkers, an authentic Italian grocery store and restaurant, Eataly, is available to you in the Gramercy neighborhood near the Flat Iron Building. Eataly isn't just a culinary experience; it makes you feel like you're enjoying the genuine taste of Italy. Additionally, there are words plastered on the wall both in English and Italian, teaching you about cultural facts. What a fun, alternative way to increase your lexis!

With these resources, hopefully you can increase your Italian language and cultural knowledge while taking Italian lessons in Brooklyn. Have fun exploring!
