Fondazione Italia just won a Totally Awesome Award for Lively Language Class in Los Angeles . We recently spoke to them about their experience as a business owner. Hear what they have to say below!

Fondazione Italia

Red Tricycle: Your community recently voted you “Most Awesome Lively Language Class” – what do your customers value most about your business?
Fondazione Italia: There are almost no language schools that offer Italian language classes for small children so I think when customers find us and discover we have a “Parent & Me” and toddler Italian language classes among our variety of course offerings they get really excited.

RT: What do you want people to know about your business that they don’t already know?
FI: Our Italian language students might not know that we collaborate closely with the Italian Consulate General in Los Angeles to promote Italian language and culture in our community and that we are incredibly involved with supporting K through college Italian teachers through different means including scholarships, book grants to enrich their classroom libraries, organizing professional workshops and providing them with classroom resources. Italian teachers are at the heart of a positive language learning experience so we are proud to support them in any way we can!

RT: Tell us, what do you start your morning with: 1. coffee 2. tea 3. mimosa 4. water 5. all of the above.
FI: An espresso of course!

RT: What’s your secret superhero power as a business owner?
FI: Speaking three languages!
