Assessment Tests

If you are a new student or returning student, and need help in assessing your Italian level, please speak to our Director, Francesca Gaspari, about an assessment. Please contact the School office for further details. We will be happy to assist you.

Enrollment Policy

Students may securely enroll on the website at Class Schedule page.  Please send all non-card payments to:

ItaLingua Institute
912 Cole Street, #349
San Francisco, CA 94117

Full payment must be made at least 24 hours before the first class. We reserve the right to charge an additional 10% for late enrollment. Pre-registration is required as we make every attempt to limit the classes to 12 students. We are unable to offer classes without sufficient enrollment (minimum of 7 students per class) and we reserve the right to cancel or rearrange classes if enrollment is less than the minimum.

Class changes can be made during the 1st and 2nd week of the term only.

Should you miss a class, please call the office to arrange a make-up lesson. Make-ups could be the same class at a different time, or another similar class that would be beneficial to the student. Make-ups can only be made during the same term as the original missed class.

Non-discriminatory policy: ItaLingua admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin.

Please contact us at (415) 362-6025 for any questions you might have concerning our Berkeley location.
