These courses give a wonderful opportunity to improve your knowledge of the Italian language in the comfort of a welcoming Italian home. Choosing a home tuition course is probably the best way to improve your Italian quickly, effectively and enjoyably. Not only will you make noticeable progress in your language skills, but you’ll actively experience day to day Italian family life. The courses are designed specifically for you according to your needs, age, level of Italian and personal interests. You will find yourself totally immersed in a typical Italian-speaking environment.
The city of Viterbo - The beautiful Etruscan city of Viterbo lies in a convenient position not far from Rome, many important Etruscan centers and the sea. Viterbo is on the ancient Via Cassia, built in Roman times, in the heart of the Etruscan region called Tuscia, which despite its fame and beauty remains largely unspoilt and untouched by mass tourism. Reminders of medieval times can be seen all over the city, especially in the ancient walls that surround the historical city center.
Many interesting villas and gardens, dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries, can be seen around Viterbo. The region’s nature is also very varied, from hills to seaside; countryside to small lakes.
The most important thing in any school if you wish to learn Italian is your Italian teacher. Our teacher team is especially motivated, highly qualified with a University degree and will take care on you. In class you should learn as rapid and as easy as possible, but you also should enjoy your classes. That is why our teachers are experienced but still have a lot of energy and motivation to make learning fun.
All our teachers are native speakers who, in most cases, have a working knowledge of other languages. The staff at our Language School does everything in their power to care for the students and ensure that everyone has highly enjoyable and unforgettable Italian experience.
