Italian language courses

Italian language classes

Our courses are aimed to develop speaking, listening, reading and writing skills and are carefully structured to develop your fluency and accuracy.

At Accademia del Giglio we use a wide variety of real-life material such as, tv programmes, newspapers, magazine extracts, and our blog articles:

– activities for A1/A2 levels
– activities for B1/B2 levels
– activities for C1/C2 levels

In Due

“In due” is a free service offered by the Accademia del Giglio. Our students are introduced to other Italian students who are studying foreign languages and together they speak in Italian and in the foreign student’s mother tongue. Both students are therefore given a chance to develop their communicative skills, practice what they have learned in their classes and use their second language to meet new people and socialize.

Credits and certificates

The Accademia del Giglio recommends that students who would like to receive credit for their studies abroad check with their university or college prior to registration.

As most universities and colleges consider 15 hours of study per term to be an acceptable level, we offer classes which provide the equivalent of 5 hours of credit per term for the study of the Italian language, along with optional hours for those students who wish to study other modules such as the history of art, studio art, etc. Please click here for more detailed information.
