Italian Language Program
Our mission is to enhance the appreciation and knowledge of Italian language and culture. We create opportunities to explore the many facets of Italian culture, and to strengthen bonds between the Italian and American people. We welcome everyone, regardless of race, national origin, or religion. The only requirements for membership are an interest in Italian culture and a desire to share that interest with others. The Italian Cultural Society of Washington D.C. is a 501c non-profit organization.

Il fiore all’occhiello — the “Pride” of the Italian Cultural Society — is its Italian Language Program (ILP)
Founded in 1974, with contributions from the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Italian Language Program is the leading private language school in the metropolitan area, focused on educating a growing learning community of adults, teenagers, and kids.
