The focus at our Italian language school is to teach the real spoken Italian language, that spoken by Italians in everyday life. Classes at our Italian language school are small and informal stimulating the learning process and communication.In our language courses, either a course in a group or individual tuition, learning duo or Italian for special purposes, we always try to combine professionalism with liveliness, method with lightness of touch, efficacy with sympathy so that everyone can feel at ease and leave behind the stress that the learning of a foreign language sometimes involves. What we aim at is that students attending our Italian courses should learn to express themselves effectively and be able to interact with Italians in every type of communication and cultural context. The method we use in our Italian language courses.
The organization of our Italian language courses is based on the development of the four
basic skills: reading, writing, listening, and speaking, as suggested by the Council of Europe in the Common European Framework of Reference which describes the levels of teaching and learning a
foreign language in the EU countries.Particular emphasis is placed on improving listening and speaking skills, developing
vocabulary and functional language so that, outside the classroom, you will be able to communicate in many different situations and practise your Italian with Italian people.
As part of the Italian language course there are some lessons out of the school when the students can practise what they have learnt: order drinks at the bar, do some shopping, chat with the shopkeepers or interview passers-by.
