The use of a communicative-situational approach, where the language is presented not aseptically, but inserted in a context of daily life, makes the course a unique learning experience for anyone who wants to get closer to the Italian language for many reasons: from the simple pleasure to study or work.

 

Group courses

The group courses are designed for those who wants to study the Italian language along with other students. The courses are divided into six levels, from beginner to advanced and are designed to facilitate dialogue and the practice of oral skills; relying on the latest teaching methods (the communicative-situational approach). In addition to the study of grammar, the group will be exposed to cultural and current topics. The lessons will be assisted by media such as Italian films, which will be used as a base for class discussion. They can be attended for one week and also combined with individual private lessons or other types of activities (see combined courses).


In detail:

  • Maximum number of participants per class: 8
  • Minimum number of participants to form a class: 3
  • Daily Lesson duration: 4 hours, 55 minutes each, from Monday to Friday
  • Schedule: from 9:00 to 13:00 with intermediate pauses

 

Private courses: individual lessons or 2-to-1

Individual lessons or 2-to-1 are designed for those who have special needs and /or limited time available and are looking for a flexible didactic programme. The student can work individually with the teacher on specific topics and content chosen. Alternatively, can deepen the knowledge with weekly individual sessions. Students who want to attend a private course in pairs must each share the same level of knowledge.

In detail:

  • Maximum number of participants: up to 2 / N.B: 50% discount for the second student enrolled
  • Daily Lessons: 2 hours, 55 minutes each, from Monday to Friday

 

Conversation

The conversation courses are designed for those who already have a good knowledge of the Italian language and want to improve its oral expression by friendly conversation in class, sitting at a bar or walking around the city with the teacher; for this reason, every chat session is longer than traditional lessons (75 minutes). It is also possible to attend the course in a couple, or with a group of 2-3 friends. In this case, the levels of understanding should be equal. The course includes 3 sessions per week, but if it’s possible you can also choose the total number of meetings (from 1 to 3 sessions, even in a single day).


In detail:

  • Single session duration: 75 minutes, from Monday to Friday on request

 

Dolce Vita

For those learning Italian for the first time or want to refresh the basic knowledge but don’t have so much time, we suggest this survival pill to get in touch with the fundamentals of the italian language. All lessons are based on short dialogues about typical activities and travel experience, such as asking for directions, ordering in a restaurant, shopping, booking a room and introduce yourself.


In detail:

  • Maximum number of participants: up to 6
  • 55 minutes each lesson every Monday in the afternoon
