Course description

The super intensive Italian courses have been developed to let students learn the Italian language in an effective way in the shortest time possible. The didactic method includes the combination of group classes and intensive individual classes in which the students can improve or better understand some aspects of the Italian language that need to be deepened (grammar doubts, conversation subjects, vocabulary, specific subjects, Italian culture, etc.).
The program or subjects of individual lessons can be proposed directly by the student. In the individual lessons students can propose and ask their teacher to go over specific subjects, clear some difficult points, or even propose a program to be carried out.

During the morning students attend the group courses (with the students of the standard course), where they have two hours of grammar followed by two hours of conversation.
