I Malatesta school is situated in the city - centre of Rimini, is open all year round and offers Italian courses periods of two, three, four or more weeks.
Lessons take place every morning from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., from Monday to Friday. We have seven basic levels of study, from beginners to advanced learners, and students are placed in the most appropriate course level according to the result of a brief introductory test, which takes place at the beginning of the courses.
The aim of the courses is to provide our students with a thorough practical knowledge of the present-day usage of the Italian language in conversational, social and everyday life contexts, for travel, recreation and leisure.
Classes are made up of a maximum of ten students, and all our teachers have university qualifications. They are specialists in teaching of Italian to foreigners. We employ a very direct and effective technique of instruction which relies on constant conversational contact between students and teacher in Italian, following a logical progression of grammatical forms, linguistic structures and elements of vocabulary.

We enclose a small guide which illustrates many of these attractions.
