Italian language courses

Intensive language courses in group

Italian in small groups

Our Italian language classes are held in a peaceful area of the city centre. Our classes are small (max. 8 students) because we feel that small class sizes are essential to facilitate the learning process and ensure that focus is placed on the learning requirements of the individual student, and on helping him/her to overcome any difficulties in a friendly environment, whilst the range of courses on offer allows the student to adapt the programme to their individual needs.

There are six levels from absolute beginners to proficiency, according to the European Language Portfolio.

Intensive Italian language courses

Intensive Italian language courses take place all year round, from Monday to Friday, usually from 9.00am to 1.00pm (20 hours a week) or from 9.00am to 1.00pm (10 hours per week).

Students take a placement test in order to be placed at an appropriate level.

Our Italian language courses start every Monday. Each student is encouraged to take a short test before starting a course so that his/her language needs can be ascertained, and it can be ensured that they are placed in a group of a similar level of ability and knowledge. On completion of a course the student will be awarded an attendance certificate by the AdG; in addition, the students are also offered the opportunity to take the officially recognised tests.

Super-Intensive Italian language courses
