“Io parlo italiano! And you can, too. Maria is an excellent teacher, a native speaker of Italian with an abiding love of language and learning. Each course we take is structured differently. She brings in little props and plays games, and corrects our pronunciation with a smile. Her cultural activities and events are engaging and tremendous fun! Maria always challenges us to do our best, but friendship and laughter are really at the heart of the course. Mi piace imparare l’italiano con Maria–you will like learning Italian with her, too!”

“My son and I took Greek cooking classes with Maria Conte. My husband is Greek, therefore my son gave me some gift certificates to be applied to cooking instruction with Maria as he had already taken a few classes with her in company of his girlfriend. I am not a great cook myself, but learning how to make stuffed vine leaves, spanakopita, tzatziki and baklava was an absolute extraordinary experience that increased my self-confidence in the kitchen. Thank you Maria for your gracious assistance!”

“I have been taking Maria’s classes for a year. I took private Italian lessons with Maria Conte and then joined a group class. She is a great teacher- the classes are always well-prepared and engaging, and she encourages great conversations among students. I started with the alphabet and now I can understand whole articles and conversations in Italian, which is truly amazing. Thank you, Maria.”
