There are six different course levels:
- Elementary 1 and 2
- Intermediate 1 and 2
- Advanced 1 and 2
The number of participants is restricted to a maximum of 6 people per course, to create the opportunity for intensive, personally applicable courses. Homogenous classes also play a part in effective learning. In order to be placed at the appropriate level, all students, except absolute beginners, sit a written and oral test at the beginning of the language course. The goal of the teaching is to promote the use of language, consolidate grammatical structures and offer an insight into the culture and everyday life of the Italians.
The classroom language is Italian. The teaching method follows the communicative-situational model as a matter of priority. Here, alongside reading and writing in particular, special emphasis is also placed on the promotion of oral expression and communicative competence, conversation and oral comprehension. The syntactical and grammatical structures taught in lessons will immediately be given practical illustration. The teaching materials are chosen by us and adapted to fit the different course levels. To make the teaching as lively and varied as possible, we also use film material, newspaper articles, cassette recordings, games and songs alongside more traditional teaching material. All participants receive a language diploma at the end of the course and if desired, additional certification of their participation.
- Duration of course: Monday - Friday, 9 am - 1 pm / 4 pm - 8 pm
- Duration of lessons: 50 minutes
Should you have particular time or programme-related requests, we also offer you individual courses. Further, we can fully cater for your needs and requirements with a personal, one-to-one language course. Therefore, the number of lessons can be altered accordingly. Personal tuition begins on the day you choose. The school also prepares students to continue their language certification at the University of Foreigners in Siena/Perugia in order to obtain an Italian language Certificate (CILS) which is a title recognized by the Italian government. Ask the school's secretary to choose the right level.
Right nearby, there are wonderful beaches and coves with white sand and beautifully clear sea: Capo Vaticano, Tropea, Zambrone, Punta Safò. The region offers you lots of opportunities for cultural leisure activities and sport. You can also choose from a wide range of fascinating excursions organised by our language school. Destinations include museums and monuments over the whole of Calabria and Sicilly, as well as to the Aeolean Islands, Taormina with its Greek theatre, to the famous trading town of Messina, or to the archeological excavations in Tindari. The range of sports activities on offer is virtually limitless, from diving courses and paragliding to "nature trips" by trekking or mountain bike
The teaching takes place in the student's apartments. Our school is known for it's personal atmosphere, therefore, the total number ofparticipants is limited to 15. The school is well equipped with modern facilities and excellent teaching material. Once a week film showings will take place in one of the students' appartments.
