Whether you want to learn Italian, travel to Italy, to communicate with Italian relatives, for further study, to connect with your heritage, for your career, or just for fun, IATI is Wollongong’s Italian language specialists.

Beginners’ courses are designed for those who would like to gain a basic understanding of Italian, use familiar everyday expressions and basic phrases for general communication (introduce yourself and others and ask and answer questions about personal details such as where you live, people you know and things that you do).

When you reach intermediate level, it means that you already have the ability to use Italian in communicating your ideas and you can understand the language with some ease.



Our Italian courses are designed to develop and promote Italian culture and language skills through listening, speaking, reading and writing.

Our classroom is located in Stewart Street in Wollongong
