The Dante Alighieri Winnipeg Italian language school emphasizes learning through personalized attention, guaranteeing a rewarding Italian-immersion experience in the classroom and through our comprehensive in-class activities. Our school offers a friendly, personal and attentive approach to learning Italian. Dante Winnipeg was founded in 1980 and was one of the first Italian language schools in Winnipeg. It is small-scale and friendly, staffed with experienced teachers having a sincere desire to help you to learn in an atmosphere of relaxed, but attentive, individual support.
