Standard Italian Courses:
StaPhoto of Italian Language Courses in Tuscany, Italyndard Italian courses 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 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 courses 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 IImage of Italian Language Courses in Tuscany, Italytalian 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.

Private Italian Lessons / 1:1:
Private lessons are for those students who are looking for a custom Italian language program that meets their individual needs. Lessons can be conceived as a true private course based on the needs and wishes of the student who prefers to work alone with a teacher for one or more weeks. Alternatively, they can be an opportunity for deeper study of Italian, even for a duration of one or two lessons only, of a particular aspect of grammar or a specific theme. The lesson content and the time required can be agreed upon beforehand with the teacher. Lessons are in increments of 55 minutes and the minimum duration is two hours. As a rule, private lessons are held in the afternoon.

Private Italian Lessons for two / 2:1: 
It is also possible to take a course or series of private lessons in pairs - with a spouse or partner, a relative or a friend. What's most important is that the difference in level between the students is not too great. This will be determined by your instructor of Italian at the first lesson. With this option, you can take advantage of special rates while sharing lessons with the person of your choice. Special rates for a package of 10 hours.

Let us know what your sector is and we will design a personal program for you. For companies that are interested in full immersion programs, we offer custom courses even for small groups.

Cultural Courses:
