Italian language school in Florence, Italy
Our school shares the values of Italian culture with a humanistic approach and excellent instruction. Our goal is the wellbeing of students. Our approach is personalized and individual. We are inspired by creative motivation, individual personalities and a big experience. We stimulate the senses rejecting any methodological dogmatism. Our scheduled activities have a socializing purpose; to promote opportunities to socially practice the Italian language.
We also dedicate our time to investigating and trying new teaching methods focused on conversational and cultural exchanges. We collaborate in the preparation of specific job application programs, and we are quality-certified from various national and local organizations.
We use the communicative method; we focus on those aspects of language that are most effectively useful in daily life. We promote interaction among students, so our lessons are divided in two parts: one where you can learn language structure, and another for the practice of real and simulated situations. All of our teachers have great experience teaching Italian. They both organize and attend training courses, updating didactic materials for the integration of learning strategies. Classes are dynamic and interestingly amusing. Our students motivate us; they stimulate us to always renew ourselves, adapting and improving continuously our way of teaching.
Our school is in Piazza Spirito Santo in the stunning city of Florence. Residential accommodation for students is in the center of the city; it will be not necessary to use public transportation since you can easily walk to the school. Our students come from all over the world, so there are many opportunities to make new friends and especially to practice Italian.
