Welcome, to Strommen’s Italian department for Italian classes Los Angeles.

Italian Classes Los Angeles

Textbooks and computer programs never warn you that to this day all Italians speak at least two languages: Italian,  e un dialetto (a local dialect). While it is great to learn standard Italian, it isn’t what the cab driver at the airport or the Mamma cooking your pasta at the trattoria will be using.  When our students use a little slang they surprise Italians and make instant friends of them. With Strommen’s Italian classes Los Angeles you will learn to use the words that have a direct line to the Italian soul.  Our tutors know all of the dialects, whether Romanaccio, Siciliano, Fiorentino, or Napoletano. Don’t worry we’ll  teach you formal Italian too if that’s more your thing. No matter where you travel, whom you speak with, or what your goals are, there is the perfect teacher for you at Strommen. Keep reading for more info about the best Italian classes Los Angeles has to offer.



With a Strommen tutor you will speak Italian on the first class. A private session is more effective, efficient and convenient than enrolling in a group class. Your Strommen teacher will be a perfect fit for your needs and learning style. We equate 10 hours of private classes with a full semester in a traditional college or group class.
Scheduling is convenient (7 days a week, any time of day) and you can start right away (Domani?). You can easily reschedule, so you will never miss a class and get left behind. In a private class you do 100% of the speaking. There are no other students to hide behind or take up all of the teacher’s time. Your teacher will make sure you progress at your pace, rather than the pace of the best (or worst) student in the class. Strommen  further enriches your learning experience with many free benefits. Student benefits include free podcasts, videos, online resources, Strommen Language Meetups around LA, group classes, workshops and even an annual immersion trip to Italy.



Getting started is easy, just fill out our student application or call and we will help choose the best teacher for you. We decide on a specific teacher based on a number of criteria including our professional gut-feeling. We will make sure it is the perfect match. As a student, your Strommen teacher will be highly dedicated to you. Our dedicated staff will ensure that you are happy. If your teacher goes to Italy for vacation or you feel like switching it up a bit, rest assured you can always get a substitute or alternate teacher. You can even change subjects! The locations for our private classes are very convenient (believe it or not we probably have a location down the street). Many of our teachers meet at cafes, at their home office, or anywhere you like. We believe it’s fundamentally wrong to really learn a language from a text book, audio CD, or computer program. It’s time to get away from the computer, grab a coffee and meet your Strommen teacher to have a real conversation!


Check out our Group Class Schedule here. Strommen Group Classes are a fun, social, and an even more affordable alternative to our private classes. We organize traditional classes like “Beginner Italian” as well as Workshops like “Dante con Vino” or “Traveller Survival”. Our classes meet at Italian restaurants or other culturally relevant locations and pass the savings on to you.

Have questions? Call us at 323-638-9787 to speak with us or check our FAQ. Here are some common questions:

Can you learn Italian in 3 months?

We Get asked this question a lot from Italian students. We compare 10 hours of Private Italian classes to almost a full semester at a traditional school. We have seen students that start with zero Italian become Fluent in under a year with the right level of commitment to their Italian studies.

What is the fastest way to learn Italian?

If you are looking to learn a language in Los Angeles, we have your back! There are many ways to learn Italian, whether you are using free Italian resources, are already using apps like DuoLingo, or enrolled at a community college, adding private Italian classes or small group Italian classes with Strommen is a flexible and affordable way to ensure results. We aim to ensure your success and make it fun!

Is Italian worth learning?

Learning any new language is a rewarding process of expanding your personal horizons. Our students have had many different reasons for learning the various languages taught by Strommen. As one of the Romance languages, with a long and rich cultural history behind it, Italian is  an excellent new addition to anybody’s language repertoire. Being one of Europe’s most culturally significant nations with a long and storied history, Italy has a lot to offer, especially for visitors that can communicate in Italian.

Is Italian similar to Spanish?

Italian and Spanish have a high degree of similarity (over 80% lexical similarity, meaning 4 out of 5 words are very similar in both languages.) If you know Spanish, then picking up Italian will be quite easy versus someone  without any background in the Spanish or  another one of the romance/latin based languages.
