Italian Language Courses

Offering the opportunity to learn Italian out of personal interest, for university studies, as a work requirement or for a greater understanding of the Italian lifestyle and culture, this program has it all. Students come from all over the world and their ages range from 16 to 80. This rich diversity of people in each class has a very positive effect on the language learning process. Each lesson is made up of a sequence of activities each of which sets out to develop a particular aspect of language skill or knowledge. The activities promote and develop the abilities of understanding and producing both spoken and written Italian and the ability to analyse Italian grammar. The general approach is communicative and student-centred. The Italian language presented and studied is up to date, authentic material is used right form the start and students are placed in real communicative situations. Italian is the only language spoken in class. The maximum number of students in each class is 14.
