What we do
The Dante Alighieri Society serves as a fundamental point of
reference for preserving and promoting Italian language and culture.
Dante Alighieri Cape Town, located in the heart of the city,
runs Italian courses of all levels, organizes cultural events and
offers a DVD and book library service with a large selection of
Italian language movies and literature.
The school is also authorized to provide PLIDA exam sessions (for official
language certificates such as A2 for long term residency in Italy or B1 for citizenship).
Courses – currently online – are conducted in an informal, fun and
interactive setting, and are aligned with the Common European
Framework of Reference for Languages.

Dante Alighieri Cape Town is run by an all Italian team and courses are taught
