Program Overview

Program Description:

The course will involve lectures, conversations, outdoor excursions and direct contact with local people and places. We believe that the best way to learn and teach Italian is to truly live and discover the places as well as to meet and interact with the local people.

During your course, you will be able to participate in excursions and outdoor trips as well as conferences that will make your learning experience even more efficient and unique.

Our teaching method is based on communication.

Students practice the main four functions of the language:

  • listening
  • speaking
  • reading
  • writing                                            

During your Italian course in Italy, we make sure to find the best balance between theory and practice. This will grant you an efficient path towards learning the Italian language.

To make your experience even more significant, during your stay you will be able to take part in excursions, conferences, and tours. This will allow you to discover the beauty of Italian language and culture. Not to mention that it will give you the chance to practice the language with the locals.

One of the special features of our course is the special attention we pay to the practical learning of the language. Conversation is vital to learning, and it gives the students the possibility to express themselves and communicate in Italian since the very beginning of the courses. Grammar and syntax are also very important for the correct use of the language. Studying grammar and syntax rules will go together with practicing conversation and listening.

Furthermore, the students will be facilitated in learning the language through art, literature and the other aspects of the Italian culture, also thanks to the interactive methods used by our teachers.
