Italian Courses

The courses at each level will be taught using a communicative teaching approach, which will allow you immediately to interact in Italian in situations familiar to you. Before starting your Italian course you will meet our teacher in order to evaluate your level, your motivations and your aims in learning Italian. Our courses are designed according to the student needs. Courses for children, teenagers and adults are available. Below you will find a short, general summary of the objectives of each adult course.

I corsi ad ogni livello saranno svolti con un approccio di insegnamento comunicativo, che ti permetterà fin da subito di interagire in lingua Italiana in situazioni a te familiari. Prima di cominciare il corso di lingua Italiana, è previsto un incontro conoscitivo con l’insegnante per stabilire il livello dello studente, la motivazione e l’obiettivo che intende raggiungere.
