The Dante Alighieri Society of BC offers Italian language

courses through the  Dante Italian Language School in Vancouver

The Dante Italian Language School in Vancouver operates in accordance with the framework established by the Cooperation Agreement between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the

Italian Republic and the Dante Alighieri Society for the promotion of the

Italian language and culture

The Dante Alighieri Society is the only institution in Canada accredited to administer the 

PLIDA Tests (for the assessment of Italian as a foreign language), officially recognized by the 

Italian Government and the European Union.

All courses are now delivered ONLINE via Zoom
5% discount on the tuition to Dante Society members

During the 2-hour classes, learners are immersed in an all-Italian environment of listening, comprehension and interaction.

While the curriculum aims to develop the four language skills – speaking, listening, reading and writing –

the focus is on oral communication.

In all our courses we use instructional materials that present an authentic use of the language

and embed interesting cultural elements.

Upon request, at the end of each completed course the  School issues a Certificate of Attendance.
