Study Italian with the The Dante Alighieri Society, Johannesburg. It is a non-profit organisation that was founded in 1927. It was the first of four Dante Alighieri Society Committees in South Africa. The Society takes its name from Dante Alighieri, author of the world-renowned Divine Comedy, who is also considered the “Father of the Italian Language”.
La Dante (The Dante Society) aims to promote the Italian language and culture in Johannesburg. The Society offers courses to adults, children and corporates, both face to face and online, with a free trial lesson for beginners. We organise cooking courses, cultural events such as conferences, movie nights, concerts and exhibitions.
Join our family … study Italian.
Registrations close on Thursday, 30 April.
