Teaching method

The fundamental criterion when teaching is to put each student, with his/her own personality and potentials at the center of our attention. For this reason, classes are intentionally small and allow the teacher to give each student individual attention throughout the course. All courses, at all levels, have the same aim: to make the student able to understand, speak, read and write the living language fluently. Classes are formed after an initial placement test that assesses students' knowledge of the Italian language. Teacher's experience and methodology are collected in a textbook called "La Bella Lingua", recently adapted also to the online learning platform.
