Conte Ruggiero School, founded in 1984 in Calabria, is one of the firsts Italian language schools in south Italy. The large Mediterranean garden with palm, olive, avocado, banana and many-more-trees make it one of a kind. The courses can also take place out in the open, making it a full immersion experience in the typical Mediterranean nature and culture: basically a little Eden/paradise. The school can be found in Santa Domenica, a small town just about a couple of minutes away from Tropea, which has been nominated "best neighbourhood in Italy" in 2021. Calabria is waiting for you to visit during your free time with its 800 kms of Coast with crystal clear water, romantic beaches and very suggestive medieval towns.
The courses are recognized by the Ministry of Education and the intensive courses are recognized as "Bildungsurlaub" for German employees. All language levels are available in accordance with the European Framework of Reference. In small learning groups, of maximum 10 students each, you will find the context that best suits you. The Italian courses offered are of different intensity (standard, standard-plus, intensive or super-intensive) and also include individual course. Choose from the wide range of courses and add some of our special programs, of the "vivere la lingua" section, (literally, "live the language" in Italian): cultural, eno-gastronomical or typical summer-experience based program, according to your preferences.
The teaching concept is based on the communicative method. Forget the fear of speaking or making mistakes. Our teachers are trained to create a friendly and familiar environment, in which you will be able to practice immediately what you have learned without being afraid of making any mistakes. By basic grammar rules and vocabulary, you will mainly focus on the communicative aspect. The goal is clear: to be able to freely and correctly apply your knowledge in conversations with native speakers, in both your holidays and in working contexts
