All our teachers are DITALS II qualified at University for Foreigners of Siena, members of APIDIS (Italian Teachers for Foreigners Professional Association), ANILS (National Association of Teachers of Foreign Languages); and ILSA (Association of Italian teachers of Second Language). The teachers are all native speakers, with multi-year teaching experience and possess all the qualifications to carry out the teaching of their native language.
Our courses, running everyday, in the morning or afternoon, are aimed to the immersion in Italian Language from the beginning. In the Italian group courses, classes are based on a communicative approach so that our students can practice the 4 fundamental functions of the language: reading, speaking, listening and writing.
The learning program allows students, who opt for our Italian Course, to immerse themselves in the Italian language and culture through interactive and authentic activities that allow them to acquire the basic vocabulary, for the beginners, and enrich it, for the advanced levels. Role-play, learning games and total immersion in real communicative situations, immediately make our students able to interact with the new context in which they work, live and have fun!
Also, the programme includes language and social extra-activities like watching italian movies after classes, joining language exchange aperitifs with italians, multi-linguistic tours of Rome, events in Rome (Opera, gigs, Festivals, Exhibitions, etc...) and tasting typical food with our fun staff! We also offer homestudent or workplace one-to-one/group classes, and online linguistic sessions.
