Il Circolino

Il Circolino / The Italian Language Centre

Il Circolino is an integral part of the Major and Minor in Italian Studies programs. We will expect you to attend specific sessions during the week as part of your Italian courses.

Il Circolino is also an informal meeting place. Drop in to further develop your language skills. Learn about the culture and activities of local and international Italian groups.

Instructors and monitors will be available in the Centre for approximately three-four hours per day. We will also have language assistants to help support the increasing numbers of students who study Italian.

Il Circolino is supported by local community groups and the Government of Italy.
