Italian in Washington DC

Why learn Italian in Washington D.C.? - Washington D.C., the U.S. capital and home to the Potomac River, boasted just under 700,000 residents in 2017, and is one of the largest metropolitan areas in the country. And while millions of tourists flock to D.C. every year, including Italians and other Europeans, there are already numerous Italian communities in the city – like Swampoodle, which is close to the Capitol, and Judiciary Square. In the 1950s and 1960s, a surge of Italian residents peaked in Judiciary Square due to the construction of the Holy Rosary Church. And although the majority of the population in Washington D.C. is American, foreign officials frequently visit the capitol, where Italian is often spoken. In fact, Washington D.C. has its very own Italian Cultural Society devoted to encouraging appreciation of the language and culture of Italy! One of the most rewarding visits in town belongs to The NIAF Museum on Italian Immigration, which offers a look at the Italians’ hardships and achievements when first coming to the United States.

Aside from politics and museums, Washington D.C. is an Italian haven for cultural events. Visitors and residents alike can catch an Italian foreign film at the local AFI Silver Theater, which is partially sponsored by the Italian government. Or, by taking a tour of Catania Bakery, guests can sample traditional Italian cookies – and if they’re lucky, share a tasting with the owners! Another perk of learning Italian in Washington D.C. is tuning in to the Georgetown University Italian department’s weekly radio show, which features both contemporary and traditional Italian music, along with relevant discussions about culture. What better way to practice your Italian skills?

If you plan on studying Italian in D.C., you’re in luck! With a wide variety of businesses that are Italian-based, you’ll have plenty of options to explore if you’re looking for new employment opportunities. Some of the most prominent Italian-owned businesses with offices in Washington D.C. include Alfa Romeo, Dolce and Gabbana, Fendi, and Air Italy.


Registering for Italian courses in Washington D.C. is quick and easy, and you can access classes online or in-person. If you have working knowledge of Italian already, feel free to take our Italian level test to determine your skill set. Or, send us a quick inquiry to get started on your learning journey!
