Italian Language Christmas Course 2014

Florence is one of the major cities in Italy and is located in the north-central part of the country. Not only is Florence well known as the capital of Renaissance, but it is also the place where modern Italian language was born. ABC de’ Conti is situated in the very heart of the city’s historical center. The school building, conveniently located between the Duomo and St. Lorenzo church is a lovely structure that has stood in this spot since the 15th century, and this is where ABC de’ Conti classes are held language lessons employ the Direct Method, in which the target language is used in class, placing equal importance on conversation, grammar, composition, and listening.
 The teachers are all native Italians rich in teaching experience. The course is designed to provide students with a basis to communicate effectively in Italian in everyday, real life situations.

You can go Christmas shopping, do groceries in supermarket, visit market, using Italian that you have learned in the class…probably you can get some extra something! As you will learn Italian language while you live in Italy, you will acquire Italian skills even in a short period, and make your stay much more interesting.
