Learn communication skills for a variety of common travel situations:

From our students:

My husband and I took the Italian for Travelers classes, and we had so much fun and learned so much that we asked for more classes! Magda is a great teacher, not only instructing us in the beautiful Italian language, but conveying important information about customs, food, logistics of getting around Italy, and general travel tips. Her teaching materials were very well-organized, and we found ourselves using almost everything we learned on our 2-week trip to Italy. We highly recommend Magda's classes if you want to learn a lot and have fun in the process! - Julie & Phil

Your Italian instruction came in extremely handy.  What you taught Jennifer and me certainly made basic communications much, much easier, and people really responded to the effort. I would recommend your Italian prep class to anyone. Thanks again for the wonderful language preparation. Your class was invaluable. - Gary
