All our Italian Language courses

 

Our school offers a wide variety of courses that you can choose and combine according to yours specific needs.
Our lessons are mostly in Italian because we believe that to speak from the earliest times in this language leads to better and more lasting results. We use, however, the assistance of English, as a language bridge, especially in courses dedicated to beginners.

We follow a communicative approach which actively promotes student participation in both oral and written ways.
To teach Italian means passion and method, the lessons are dynamic, interactive and lively. We come together to the Italian language’s heart. This is our goal. To attend one of our courses means to be together, to have fun and to feel more and more confident in the use of the new language, together with the study group. The lessons will become awaited moments, as you would wait an appointment with friends, to do something interesting together, that makes you feel good, motivating both mind and heart. Because the Italian language is learned with both.
Each course becomes a beautiful experience of significant moments as well as cognitive. We’ll have fun with simulations of everyday situations. We will complete the grammar lessons with a lighter approach, listening to the song’s lyrics, relishes the words of a poem, tasting a lifestyle that is lived language.

ITALIAN LEVEL OF KNOWLEDGE

The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, Teaching, Assessment, abbreviated in English as CEFR or CEF or CEFRL (compared to the German abbreviations GeR or GeRS, the French abbreviation CECR, the Italian QCER, or the Spanish MCER), is a guideline used to describe achievements of learners of foreign languages across Europe and, increasingly, in other countries.
It was put together by the Council of Europe as the main part of the project “Language Learning for European Citizenship” between 1989 and 1996. Its main aim is to provide a method of learning, teaching and assessing which applies to all languages in Europe. In November 2001, a European Union Council Resolution recommended using the CEFR to set up systems of validation of language ability. The six reference levels are becoming widely accepted as the European standard for grading an individual’s language proficiency.
