Our linguistic and cultural institute is located in Legnaro, a small town 15 km from the center of Padua. Three faculties of the Universita' di Padova recently moved here, giving Legnaro a lively atmosphere unknown to other towns of this size. The chances to get involved in the local cultural life are much higher than in any big city, without the hassles of the tourist places, like higher prices, criminality, traffic, and so on.
The course is comprehensive, aiming at improving the students’ speaking, understanding, writing and reading abilities. The content is generally half grammar and half conversation based.
The students can participate in classes being taken by native Italians in their native language as lectors/guests. It is a great chance to meet Italians interested in the foreign student’s culture and language, and to make friends with the locals.
Our school organizes cultural events such as weekly movies in original language and evenings of music and theater. Guest lecturers also are invited to talk about different issues and subjects.
For the students interested in the subject, weekly cooking classes are held. This is a good opportunity to get to know some of the most famous Italian dishes.
A wide variety of courses for all needs, possibility of customized one-to-one lessons.

- School trips: we will visit Venice, Padua, and other nearby attractions..
