Why Learn Italian with Cactus?

Cactus Language provides Italian courses all over Italy. UNESCO rates Italy as having more sites of historical importance than any other country and homes almost 60% of the world’s arts treasures. Our students start to learn Italian for a wide range of reasons and often because speaking Italian opens up a greater understanding of Italy’s art, history, architecture and gastronomy. Whether you’re ordering pizza in Naples, or gelato in Venice, having a working knowledge of the Italian language not only enhances your experience, but also helps you get along with the locals.

And if you are considering a career in fashion and design, planning to buy a second home in Tuscany or are an aficionado of classical music then learning Italian is a must.
