Find the course that suits you best

Courses

We offer a wide and extensive range of courses to meet the diverse and different needs of students. The courses – taught by highly qualified and motivated teachers with an extensive experience in teaching Italian as L2 (second language) – are held throughout the year and start every Monday.

 

Based on the results of the online test, students are placed in the class corresponding to their level of knowledge of the language. The CEFR defines six common reference levels: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2. Each student will receive special attention in relation to his/her own interests and needs. Particular importance is given to daily spoken Italian, oral expression, understanding and the ability to express oneself in many different situations. Teaching strategies are always considered and carried out in light of the experience of the class and the different groups.

For this reason we never ask our teachers to use only one grammar book, although the Founder and Director of Studies, Andrea Bernardoni, has written one himself.

 

Please note: your inclusion as a student in a given class on the basis of the online test result can be subject to changes. As a matter of fact, we give you the option to change class and level depending upon your situation. We also follow your progression and – in agreement with you – assess and recommend or encourage your progression to a higher level if appropriate.

Description

FOTO CON STUDENTI TERRAZZA TOURING - Ottobre 2015The classes are few in number and the average number of students for each class is around 4-8. The small class size guarantees special attention to each student’s individual needs, enables teachers to get to know their students as individuals and facilitates friendly relationships.

The daily Italian lesson consists of two parts: the first part of the lesson is mainly focused on the grammatical structure and vocabulary, whereas the second part is dedicated to the use of the Italian language (speaking, reading, listening and writing) focusing on expression and communication (current events, Italian culture, lifestyle, and other topics of interest will be discussed during this part of the lesson).

The Standard General Group Course has either a mid-morning break or a mid-afternoon break when students and teachers go to a coffee-bar together: a wonderful chance to practice Italian with the locals, have a chat and get to know each other better.
