The Italian language is the eighth most spoken language in the United States, due to the large-scale immigration of Italians, which began in the 18th century. In fact, Italian instruction in American schools is on the rise, surpassing French classes, which are on the decline. The Advanced Placement Italian Language and Culture program is once again available to high school students thanks to Italian-American groups and the Italian Embassy who were able to get funding for the program.
