Italian Language schools in Italy
Among the italian languages scholls in Italy we selected some of the schools to co-operate with. With some we are offering a joint course of italian languages, (ie summes courses in Orbetello) while with some others we just share common keypoints or we would like to plan some special together.
The school adopts a fully communicative approach to the teaching of Italian that is continually up-dated. Language is never presented out of context and grammar, phonology, lexis and all other features of actual language used in everyday situations are analysed. A wide variety of up-to-date authentic material is used in class, thus giving the students valuable information about modern-day Italian culture and society at the same time as developing the students' authentic linguistic and communicative skills.
The teaching staff consists of experienced, university-trained professionals with a solid experience in the teaching of Italian as a foreign language. Some teachers have worked abroad with students of very different nationalities and levels and have acquired a particular sensitivity to the specific demands of every participant. The service of reception and didactic orientation offered by the tutors is based on the didactic principles of the "project work": upon their arrival the students will determine with the teachers the level of their linguistic knowledge. The teachers will help the students clarify their real purposes and they will plan together the stages of "the learning-project".
Scuola di Italiano Conte Ruggiero
Conte Ruggiero Language School was born in 1984. It is one of the first schools founded in the south of Italy teaching Italian as a foreign language. As always, students appreciate the family atmosphere of a very small school. It's the best place for being in contact with the language and Italian people. The school is located in a big garden with rich vegetation. The huge green area and the beautiful blue sea contribute to a very special experience of learning. Classes are outside under banana and avocado trees or, depending on the weather, inside in the classrooms.
