General Italian Language Courses
Our standard Italian language c
ourses are for those who wish to learn the Italian language in the mornings in the company of other students in small groups. Our Italian language classes are divided into six levels based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages of the European Council, from beginner to advanced, and combine study of the language with in-depth studies of culture and current affairs (the degree of complexity being determined by the level of the course).
The Italian language courses consist of four hours (55 minutes each) of group lessons (Monday to Friday from 8:45 to 13:10, with two breaks) and are taught by two teachers who alternate with each other. Students have the possibility of attending a course for one week only, or of integrating a course with packages, or single Italian private lessons in the afternoons.
Standard+ Italian Courses
: The Standard+ Italian courses are a combination of the standard Italian language course plus one hour of private lessons per day in the afternoon, for a total of 25 hours (55 minutes each) of instruction per week.
Intensive Italian Courses
: The intensive Italian courses are a combination of the standard Italian language course plus two hours of private lessons per day in the afternoon, for a total of 30 hours (55 minutes each) of instruction per week. The courses are designed for those who wish to reinforce their knowledge of the grammatical structures acquired in the group lessons, engage in an in-depth study of a specific aspect of the Italian culture or current affairs, or work individually on conversation, listening or reading comprehension, or writing. The content of these lessons can be established beforehand with the teachers.
