Our didactic method is the result of many years experience in teaching Italian to non-native speakers. The approach is strictly communicative and the student is encouraged to express himself while considering the linguistic and grammatical characteristics of the Italian Language. The aim is to develop a broad range of skills, but in particular, fluency of expression and grammatical accuracy that enable the student to interact in different situations both in daily life and the working world.
The institute is staffed with graduated and certified mother tongue teachers, that have a long experience in teaching Italian to foreigners. The teachers are always helpful and ready to discuss individual problems and meet all the students’ needs.
