Course overview

This excellent intensive Italian course is designed for motivated students who need to improve their language skills either for general use or for their study or work.

Course content

In the morning you will develop your general Italian language skills and in the afternoon you will have more time to focus on specific aspects of Italian language and culture.  

You will also be able to improve your communication skills on this course and there is further practice in areas such as conversation and vocabulary expansion.

You can also, if you so wish, choose to focus on the use of Italian in a work context and there will be the opportunity to improve your social and intercultural skills as well. 

Teaching methodology

Each group is taught by two teachers a day in order to ensure more varied and stimulating instruction. Each level can be completed in 4 weeks. At the end of each course after successful completion of a test you can progress to the next level.

Classes are lively, stimulating and most of all enjoyable. Students are provided with useful vocabulary and relevant grammar presented in a modern and interesting way. We estimate that each level can be completed in around four weeks.

On successful completion of a language test you can then go on to take the next level.
