Learn Italian on Zoom

Would you like to learn to speak Italian from the comfort of your own home? Join our online Italian courses and learn in a fun and interactive way. Our virtual courses bring our unique face-to-face teaching style directly to your home or wherever you want to study. Our communicative lessons are taught by the same qualified and experienced Italian teachers you have seen on the Passione Italiana YouTube channel.

Our Interactive Italian Zoom courses are taught on different days and times. (The times you see advertised are UK time). You will join an intimate group of 4 to 10 participants with your favourite Italian teachers and take your Italian to a whole new level.

Passione Italiana courses are offered from beginners to advanced, based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (A1-C2).

What’s my Italian level?

At Passione Italiana, we divide our Italian group courses into four main levels: Beginners (A1), Elementary (A2), Intermediate (B1), Post-Intermediate (B2). These levels are further divided into three parts of 22.5 hours each to afford you 67.5 hours in total, across the whole year, to reach your desired level. Our expert Italian teachers will guide you to develop the four learning skills: speaking, listening, reading, and writing.

Beginners Italian courses: Learn Italian from scratch. Learn the basics of the language: talk about yourself and other people, describe your everyday life, interact with Italians in everyday situations and express your tastes and likes.

Elementary Italian courses: If you already have a basic knowledge of the language and can talk about yourself and other people, describe your everyday life and express likes and preferences, this course is for you. Build on what you already know as you learn how to talk about past experiences, give advice and orders, make hypotheses and interact with other Italian speakers with more confidence.

Intermediate Italian courses: This course is for you if you have already studied Italian for about two years, know the basic structure of the language and are able to interact and talk to people about different topics, such as everyday life, past experiences, and future plans. You will deepen your knowledge of Italian and learn to speak to Italians with confidence. You will learn to give your opinions, explain your reasons, discuss current affairs, and engage in more abstract conversation.

Post-Intermediate Italian courses: If you already know how to use all the main structures of Italian and want to deepen your knowledge and become more fluent and confident, then this course is for you. You will broaden your Italian vocabulary as you take your knowledge to the next level.

Find the right online Italian course for you

To ensure you get the best possible Italian learning experience, we have created a multiple-choice test to help you (and us) find the right course for you.

Qualified and experienced Italian Teachers

Alex – I founded Passione Italiana in 2001 to share my passion for Italy. I have been teaching Italian since 2004 both privately to individuals and small groups, and also for my local Adult College. In 2007 I gained the Level 5 Diploma in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector, the Level 3 Assessor Certificate and Qualified Teaching Learning and Skills (QTLS) status in 2011.

Having grown up with both English and Italian, I am fascinated by the curious linguistic links between the two languages. I am passionate about education and love sharing my “passione” with our students.

Marta – Italian is in my blood and teaching is in my heart. I’ve been teaching Italian as a foreign language since 2004. Since I started teaching at International House Milano, my passion to travel and desire to share my language and culture has taken me to the US and the UK. In this time I’ve clocked up a lot of experience teaching multilingual groups and intensive one-to-one courses. By planning my lessons around the learners’ needs, I’ve helped students reach a variety of language goals from formal examinations and business communication to travel and the joy of simply learning my beautiful language. 

Qualifications: Degree in Foreign Languages and Literature, Certificate in Italian Language Teaching to Adults with the Communicative Approach (CLTA), Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training.
