About ContentoItaliano

ContentoItaliano is a place where people can learn about the Italian language and culture.

The word “contento” in Italian means “happy” or “content”. The word “italiano” can mean both the Italian language and an Italian person. The Italian word “contento” also reminds us of the word “content”, meaning material or information around Italy and the Italian language. When we came up with the idea of ContentoItaliano, we wanted to pick a name that would capture everything that we aim to do.

Explore our resources to enrich your understanding of the Italian language and culture or take a look at the classes we offer. In-person classes and tuition are based in Lincoln, United Kingdom, but we also teach online.
