We offer also various extra curricular activities and student services, to support student’s safe and fruitful stay in Italy.

Teaching Method / Direct Method

All our Italian language courses are based on the “direct method” and equal importance is placed on conversation, grammar, and composition. The Direct Method, also known as natural method, uses only the target language, rather than the mother tongue of the trainees or an intermediary language. This teaching method was established in Europe around 1900 and it has been used since then as one of the main language teaching approaches. Just like children learn their first language, no other language is employed during the class: the purpose of this method is to learn how to think and communicate naturally in Italian without stopping to think.
For beginners, we provide systematic understanding of the Italian language, starting with the alphabet pronunciation and basic grammar. For intermediate and advanced level students, we offer a variety of Italian language courses such as technical terms, business training, interpreters training, etc.

The purpose of our courses is to provide a practical linguistic training to master “useful” Italian expressions and terms in each student’s daily life.

In small group classes, the teacher is able to follow students closely, providing accurate instructions, so that students can improve their Italian language ability much more efficiently than in a large group lessons.
You can choose group lessons, semi-private lessons, or private lessons. Group lessons are classes of 9-15 students, semi-private lessons are classes of 2-8 students.
