Accredited, personalized online Italian instruction live, one-to-one via video chat.

A relationship-based approach to online language instruction.

Language Immersion

Lessons immerse students in language learning, cultural exploration, and understanding of customs. It’s like going abroad without leaving your home. Positive relationships and meaningful connections drive and improve language study. Using a communicative approach, students get direct and consistent practice speaking the target language.

Flexible Scheduling

Flexible Scheduling is critical for busy students. We work with your schedule. A private instructor comes to you via video chat! Our courses run year-round, and students can start anytime. Lessons can be paused if needed, but expire 8 months after purchase for year-long courses and 5 months after purchase for semester-long courses. Cancel a lesson and reschedule with 24 hours’ notice.

Competency & Project-Based Learning Model

A Competency and project-based learning model allows students to direct their learning experience, apply the knowledge, and demonstrate their learning. Every student is different.

Private Instruction

Private coaching is the best and fastest way to learn. Student-centered teaching creates an environment where students focus on topics of their interest in Italian and get the most practice speaking the language.

Support Based On Individual Needs

Our students receive timely, differentiated instruction and support based on individual needs. Varied pacing, active learning, and curated resources allow students to demonstrate progress based on evidence of mastery, not seat time.

High Schools accept LanguageBird course credits.

Yes! LanguageBird is a fully accredited institution.

LanguageBird meets the highest standards of excellence and offers students and their families the peace of mind that comes with a premier private school experience. We are accredited by both the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and AdvancED/Cognia. Both international accreditations are accepted at high schools globally. LanguageBird transcripts are recognized by colleges and universities worldwide.

Additionally, LanguageBird is both NCAA approved for athletes as well as University of California approved for California students seeking admission to UC/CSU campuses. College-bound, NCAA, and transferring students receive credit for courses completed with LanguageBird. For information on how to send transcripts, please see our FAQ page.

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!

COURSES FOR CREDIT

Accredited high school and middle 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 Sign Language 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, watching videos, conducting internet research, and reading authentic materials written in the target languages.

BIRD BUNDLES

Accredited high school and middle school Courses for Credit combined with Tutoring & Test Prep for students needing or wanting extra support or practice.

Through intensive instruction students build upon and increase listening, speaking, reading, writing skills in the target language. Each meeting alternates one Course for Credit lesson with one Tutoring lesson. This way, students have one “learning” lesson and then an additional practice/support tutoring hour for homework, extra questions, or reviewing concepts.

Students develop cultural awareness and become prepared to encounter real-life situations outside of the classroom through discussions of cultural customs and behavior, watching videos, conducting internet research, and reading authentic materials written in the target languages.

TUTORING & TEST PREP

Students receive private, one-to-one, live tutoring sessions geared toward reiterating concepts covered in their school classroom.

Instructors 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 instructor.

The lessons can also be geared toward helping students prepare for exams, including but not limited to the Global Seal of Biliteracy, AP exams, and other fluency exams.

CONVERSATIONAL LESSONS

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.

Conversational Lessons are one-to-one communicative Italian lessons with a native speaker.  The lessons cover elementary, intermediate, or advanced grammatical structures of Italian, as well as vocabulary and cultural situations.

Our approach to education is personal and dynamic.

Innovative learning activities, students directed projects, and unique assessments engage students in the learning process. Instructors take notes during each lesson 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 lesson of the course along with any required written components.

Why choose an online middle school or 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 and middle school environment. All of our faculty are experienced instructors in the field of education, not just native speakers. Our trained, experienced instructors love to work with high school and middle school students. Students meet with the same instructor 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.

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.

In the meantime, reach out to LanguageBird today and learn all about the benefits of high school students taking online Italian classes from one of the top providers in the country!

An Online Italian Instructor Lets Students Learn on their Time.

The life of middle and high school students is actually a full-time job. Between attending classes, studying, participating in sports, partaking in other extra curricular activities like playing an instrument or participating on the debate team, and doing volunteer work , there are also family obligations that play into life. This means a window of time to meet with an online Italian instructor can be minimal, and this is why middle and high school students need an online Italian instructor 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.
