Koinè, named after a Greek word meaning “common language”, is a special kind of school set up in 1980 as an association of teachers, all with personal and professional experience in the area of teaching Italian as a foreign language. These teachers decided to create a new type of organization which would differ from other private schools in its style of working and teaching methods. Today Koinè has developed teaching materials, books, and audiovisual tools, whilst also organizing seminars and teacher orientation courses. All of our teachers are specifically trained in these didactic methods. The lessons are not limited purely to language teaching, but completed by a series of introductory courses and guided visits to show our country’s landmarks. Koinè has expanded over time from its main school in Florence, with schools in Lucca, Cortona, Rio Marina on the Island of Elba and Bologna, the capital city of the Emilia-Romagna region in northern Italy.
The Koinè Center is headquartered in the historic center of Florence, between Piazza Duomo and Piazza Santa Croce (bus 14 or 23 from the main train station or 10 minutes on foot). Many popular bars and restaurants are found in this area which is just a few hundred meters from the Sant'Ambrogio market and the flea market. The University of Florence and the largest public libraries in the city are within walking distance. The classes of the Koinè Centre are held in Palazzo Borghese, a Renaissance palace completely rebuilt in the 19th century in the neoclassical style by Prince Borghese.
Single and double rooms rented from families or in hotels or convents. We offer a free of charge accommodation booking service for the duration of the language course.
The Koinè Center offers Italian courses of different lengths and levels, using assorted teaching methods to satisfy a variety of students' needs. Language and culture are taught in some of Italy's most scenic, historic locations. There are many combinations of subjects that can be studied.
