The Language House:
The Language House is a cross cultural program that offers Italian language holidays and Italian immersion programs for adults and teenagers in Florence, Milan and Genoa, Italy. Our Intensive Italian language courses take place all year round, from Monday to Friday, usually from 9am to 1pm (20 hours a week). Students take a placement test in order to be placed at an appropriate level. Our classes are very small (max.10 people) and no matter the location are held in the city centre. We feel that small class sizes are essential to facilitate the learning process and ensure that focus is placed on the learning requirements of the individual student, and on helping him/her to overcome any difficulties in a friendly environment. The range of courses offered allows the student to adapt the program to their individual needs.
Intensive Italian courses at seven levels: beginner, elementary, pre-intermediate, intermediate, upper-intermediate, advanced and proficiency according to European standards.

From art to architecture to cuisine, Florence promises it all and much more. Strategically nestled in Tuscany, you can easily access all corners of this region. Surrounded by beautiful countrysides and vineyards, you will not run out of places to see nor things to do. As Florence was the birthplace of the Italian Renaissiance, there are countless collections of art as well as architectural monuments to visit and explore.
Milan is the biggest city in northern Italy and the powerhouse of the country as well as one of the most stylish cities in the world. But it is also a city with many important museums and wonderful monuments. See the Castello Sforzesco the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie (which displays Leonardo’s Last Supper) the Brera Museum (Madonna and Child and Pieta by Bellini) and many other museums monuments and churches. Moreover, Milan is a lively city, with pubs, discos and nightclubs. Being a fashion capital too, you might run into a top model or designer.
Perfectly located on the Italian Riviera, Genoa is an old port city with charm and architectural grace. Because of its lack of high tourism, Genoa affords its visitors an authentic Italian culture with affordable prices. Its medieval old town is an intricate labyrinth of alleyways, where among the shops, restaurants, and local stores, visitors can catch sight of the city's noble past in its 16th century palazzos, baroque edifices, and Romanesque churches, looming over the little piazzas. While Genoa is only an hour away from Milan, a world famous bustling city, it is also close to the small beautiful gems of Lake Como, Cinque Terre, Portofino and Santa Margherita.
