The Italian programs include intensive week long courses and extensive courses which cover two months. They are intended for foreigners who have decided to move to Italy, long-term tourists or frequent visitors.
Foreign language courses
We run 34 hour language courses of English, German, Russian, French and Spanish which cover for two calendar months. They are scheduled either in the morning or in the evening and are made up of two weekly lessons.
We also run shorter courses which last 24 or 18 hours, in this case one lesson per week is sufficent.
European Foreign Language Classification and download language test
Our language programmes follow the European Classification in 6 levels, according to the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework of Reference for Language Learning and Teaching, which contains guidelines to check the level of language proficiency.
Choose the level you believe you best fit in through self-evaluation.
At the beginning of our program you will be asked to go through an entry test and don’t worry, because you can change class without any problem, even after a first couple of hours, seeing an teacher to discuss your objectives, so that the most suitable class can be chosen for you.
