How do I get high school credit?
If you have not met your high school graduation requirements for world language, we recommend you talk to your school counselor and let them know you would like to take a LanguageBird® course. Most college-prep high schools require 2 years of world language. Some high schools will have you fill out a concurrent enrollment form or ask you to send a transcript once your LanguageBird® course is complete. We are happy to work with your high school administrator and counselors!

Choose from courses for credit, tutoring and test prep, conversation lessons or a combination!
COURSES FOR CREDIT
Accredited high school Italian courses with a private instructor at your pace and convenience.
Students build upon and increase listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills in the target language. Students develop their Italian proficiency through extensive, spontaneous interaction with a native speaker in the language.
Students develop cultural awareness and become prepared to encounter real life situations outside of the classroom through discussions of cultural customs and behavior, videos, Internet research and by reading authentic materials written in the target language.
TUTORING & TEST PREP
Students receive private, one-to-one, live tutoring sessions geared toward reiterating concepts covered in their school classroom.
Tutors address any difficulties students may be having and help with homework and test preparation. Regularly scheduled lessons are recommended, rather than just for “emergency” situations. It’s best if the student consistently builds skills as well as a personal relationship with their tutor.
The lessons can also be geared toward helping students prepare for exams, including but not limited to: SAT Subject Tests, AP and fluency exams.
This is live, one-to-one communicative Italian lessons to cover elementary and intermediate grammatical structures of the Italian language, as well as vocabulary and cultural situations with a native speaker.
These lessons are designed to help students develop and mature foundational communicative skills to prepare them for everyday conversations in Italian. In addition, the student will master their fluency through the stylized nature of the course. Conversation lessons are open to students of all ages.

Our approach to education is personal, dynamic.
Innovative learning activities, unique assessments, and student directed projects engage students. Instructors take notes during each session to share with students and evaluate students over time based on personal progress. We don’t believe in timed exams. We do believe in giving students the opportunity to present what they have learned in a format and environment in which they are comfortable. Final projects are presented to the instructor during the final session of the course along with any required written components.
Why Choose an Online High School Language Program?
Enrolling your student in a LanguageBird course offers greater freedom and flexibility for their learning than what is typically found in a traditional brick-and-mortar high school environment. All of our faculty are experienced instructors in the field of education, not just native speakers. Our trained, experienced teachers love to work with high school students. Students meet with the same teacher building a relationship and skills. Students use our courses to make more room in their daily school schedule, to get ahead, make-up a class or study a language not offered at their school.
We provide students with the most personalized, one-to-one, learning experience.

Online Italian Classes Make Life Easier for Students
Being a high school student is a full-time job. They have classes to attend, homework to complete, social activities to join in order to beef up their transcripts, sports, band practice, and other activities. They might also work a part-time job, and have family obligations. Simply by eliminating a single physical class can be a game-changer by giving them more time in the day to get things done. When your student gets to take online Italian classes from an accredited program, they have unfettered freedom to attend class on their own time, as it best fits into their schedule. In other words, they can take the class at 8AM and finish before school starts, at 5PM when basketball practice ends, or even at 10PM before going to bed. Taking online Italian classes offers students tons of flexibility in their schedule, and in turn this can also make parent’s lives easier.
Partnering with an Online Italian Tutor
An online Italian tutor usually has two approaches: they take the place of traditional Italian teachers at high schools through accredited online programs, or they work with students who take Italian classes on campus to help them get ahead of the curve and improve their final grade, speaking, and comprehension skills. Think of an online Italian tutor the same way you would a hitting and pitching coach: imagine your son joined the baseball team, and he is trying to make the bullpen. He has his coach on campus, but works with a specialty instructor outside of school to improve his pitching and hitting skills. This is what a certified online Italian tutor can do for your student–give him a leg up in class by setting him on a path to truly master the language and get a better grade through heightened performance.
Talk to the School Counselor about Online Italian Classes
Before you enroll your students in online Italian classes, set an appointment with the school counselor where you and your child can sit down with him or her, and go over the necessary consideration points. First, you will want to make sure the online Italian classes are fully accredited to meet the student’s needs. You may just need the credits to easily transfer to the high school, but in many cases also ensure universities will honor them. If your student is going to enter the NCAA to pursue a sport in college, then the online Italian credits must be transferable to the NCAA. Your school counselor can verify these things for you, and even examine your child’s class schedule and other obligations and find the ideal time to take online Italian classes in the most productive way that honors scheduling.
Finally, ask the school counselor if the high school would ever be in any position to offer online Italian classes and other language programs on campus. This could be proposed as a compliment to current traditional learning, or as an independent program to keep the school innovative while truly offering resources to the student body to help make them successful. You can make a notion at a school PTA meeting, or at a School Board meeting.

An Online Italian Tutor Lets Students Learn on their Time.
The life of high school students is actually a full-time job. Between attending classes, studying, participating in sports, partaking on other extra curricular activities like playing an instrument or participating on the debate team, and doing volunteer work (many do), there are also family obligations that play into life. This means a window of time to meet with an online Italian tutor can be minimal, and this is why high school students need an online Italian tutor who will teach them, on their time, whether that is at 6AM, 10PM or on weekends. When you invest in a high-quality online Italian tutor, you get the freedom of learning at your convenience.
