Italian intensive courses

Intensive courses

Group courses are for students who would like to attend an Italian language course in a small group with other students. There are 6 levels, from Beginner to Advanced. The courses combine language teaching with a broader syllabus covering Italian culture and current affairs. The student is offered the opportunity to understand, to speak, to read and write the living language through varied and articulated lessons. In order to fulfill our aim, we assure any student special individual care, thanks to the small number of students per class (max. 9/10).

Teaching method

Our teaching methods are modern and based on communicative methods, emphasizing correct pronunciation and  grammar. During all our lessons we always speak Italian with our students, in order to improve the comprehension and production abilities from the first day. Furthermore, our lessons are organized to encourage the active participation of each student. We aim to create a friendly environment, infusing the students  our love of the Italian language and culture.

Our teachers

Our staff is composed of native speakers of Italian, all teachers hold the qualifications to teach Italian to foreigners. Experience, enthusiasm and kindness are their principal characteristics.

Teaching materials

Our school does not use a traditional textbook but a range of books and resources that are among the most modern on the market, and focus on communication-based approach.  Furthermore, a wide range of authentic teaching material is used to supplement lessons, including newspaper and magazine articles, recordings of conversations between native speakers, songs, literary pieces, short films, images, games and clips and Italian films. All educational materials used in class are included in the price.

Lessons start at 9.00 and end at 12.30 every day from Monday to Friday.
