PART-TIME COURSE (2 hours per day / 10 hours per week)

The part-time course is a group course made of 2 hours lesson per day; the 2 hours can be mainly grammar, mainly conversation, or two afternoon hours, with a mix of reading, writing, listening activities and vocabulary and oral production strengthening exercises.

The Italian part-time course is ideal:
> if you want to have more free time during the day.
> if you do not have much time to attend the standard or intensive courses due to other commitments or personal reasons.
> if you prefer to improve only your communication skills and speak more fluently, or if you only want to improve difficult grammar subjects or learn the ones you don’t know.
> We recommend this course if you already have a bit of knowledge of the language (elementary or intermediate), or if you know it well (advanced) and you need to improve, strengthen or “refresh” your knowledge of the Italian language.

STANDARD COURSE (4 hours per day / 20 hours per week)

The Italian standard course is our most attended course: each class is organised according to levels, and is composed by students coming from all over the world. The Italian standard course is made of 4 hours lesson per day, 5 days a week, for a total of 20 weekly hours. Each morning you’ll take part in two hours of grammar lessons followed by two hours of conversation lesson, where we will present daily and real life situations.

The Italian standard course is ideal:
> for students of any level.
> for those who want to have good results but have the afternoon free for their private commitments or visiting Florence.
> for those who love the Italian language and culture and want to learn speaking Italian.
> for those who want to learn or improve their understanding and their ability to speak Italian.

INTENSIVE COURSE (6 hours per day / 30 hours per week)

The intensive course consists of 6 hours per day (30 hours per week), made of two hours of grammar, two hours of mainly conversation and two afternoon hours that are a mix of readings, writing, listening activities, applied grammar and conversation related to daily situations through role plays and games, enhancing the students’ vocabulary and their communication skills. For those who want, the afternoon classes can be individual, which make the course even more effective (see super-intensive courses).

The intensive course of Italian is ideal:
> for students of all levels.
> for those who have an immediate need to learn Italian quickly.
> for those who have little time available and cannot attend long-term courses.
> for those who want to enrich their vocabulary.
> for those who want to strengthen their confidence in the spoken language.

Content of the lessons

> In grammar classes, new rules are explained and deepened, through readings, exercises, revision and building sentences.
> In conversation classes teachers propose various and creative subjects through listening and reading activities, oral production, group works, vocabulary, dialogues, comments and discussion with other students and the teacher.
> During the two hours in the afternoon lesson are held in a playful and creative way, so that the students are not too tired after the four hours in the morning. Teachers propose daily situations through role plays and games, enhancing the students’ vocabulary and their communication skills.
