The Order of the Sons of Italy Burlington Lodge 2223 has been offering the Italian language classes for the past two decades and the program is one of the lodge's proudest achievements. The on-going goal of the lodge is to teach Italian to interested members of the community. This goal is a 'work-in-progress' in which many people over the years have been introduced and educated in the Italian language.
Many students have completed the entire course and have returned year after year to keep up with their conversational skills. Whatever the reason, learning a new language and culture can be a rich, rewarding and enjoyable experience.
