Portrait of young student?

These 16 week courses (one semester) are for high school or college students wishing to learn Italian online with the guidance of a CyberItalian teacher who monitors and evaluates the student's practice every week. Depending on the school/student needs, these courses can also be tutored only by the school teacher.
Students get assignments and written homework corrections, complete audio lessons, receive personalized feedback and grades, take a midterm test and a final exam.

Testimonial: "Congratulations on the site. I am vice president of a training company in Alexandria, Virginia. I have been thinking a lot about distance learning and looking at a lot of examples. Yours is one of the best I've seen-easy to use, fun, and inviting. It is really inspiring to me as I try to see how our courses could be offered in a new way. Grazie, Sally"
