Italian in Chicago

Why learn Italian in Chicago? – As of 2018, around 70 million people in the world speak Italian, but only Chicago has deep-dish pizza. Italian is the official language of Italy, San Marino, and one Canton of Switzerland, and is the fourth most studied language in the world. It gets even better when you think of the huge Italian gastronomic culture found in the Windy City, making Italian classes in Chicago the most delicious and advantageous of language learning choices.


Google shows 23.5 million results for an “Italian Restaurant Chicago” search. That’s both outstanding and unbelievable when you take into account the city’s total population of 2.7 million. Illinois’s major city has been receiving waves of Italian immigrants since the 1890s, meaning everything from the food to the people are truly authentic. For this reason, it makes the most sense to take up Italian lessons in Chicago — trust in the “Paris of the Prairie.”

Aside from being able to visit Italy and getting to enjoy it like a local, your sector might also be ripe for Italian speakers. Italian is the leading language in fashion, culture, fine arts, design, and the luxury car industries, to name a few. Lamborghini, Dolce and Gabbana, the works of Rafael and Dante are just some of the things you’ll have access to in their source language. Also, for those into opera, the best songs to belt out are Italian songs — you can never come back from Loretta Goggi and Toto Cotugno. If you’re more of a sports person, you’ll be happy to know Italian football is very rich and worth understanding in full as well, notwithstanding the 2018 World Cup disaster.

Now that you’ve picked a language, why exactly should you take Italian courses in Chicago? If you already live there, there’s no need to go anywhere else. You have everything you need right at home, Italian restaurants and all. Chicago is one of the hubs of Italian American culture, with Little Italy being the epicenter. In addition to restaurants, this neighborhood has churches founded by Mother Cabrini, and it even has the National Italian-American Sports Hall of Fame, with exhibits honoring greats like Joe Dimaggio and Vince Lombardi. What are you waiting for?
