This is a school specialized in teaching the Italian language and culture to foreign learners.
Florence, for many reasons, is the ideal place to learn Italian or to improve your knowledge of the language. It is the city where the Italian language was born and where it evolved. Therefore it is here where the purest form of Italian is spoken with its distinctive and unique dialectal inflection. Florence has an immense and rich artistic heritage and therefore it has become one of the world's artistic and cultural centers.
Florence is located in the heart of the Tuscany region and in less than one hour it is possible to reach towns like Siena, Lucca, Pisa, Arezzo, San Gimignano, Cortona, Pienza, Volterra and the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Florence is a rather small university and tourist city and its historic center is free from traffic and far from the metropolitan industrial area.
Our language school is situated in the historical center of Florence, on the third floor of a bourgeois palace (with a lift) built at the end of the 19th century and recently renovated. Its location is the borough that houses banks and world-wide famous fashion shops. The Cathedral, the railway station and the main monuments and museums are all within walking distance from the school.
All our teachers are Italian mother-tongue speakers and have a degree. They are qualified with an experience in teaching Italian as a Second Language and are constantly kept updated. They are always available to the individual student. Their classes are lively, interesting and entertaining at the same time, also thanks to various teaching materials.
The staff are always available to students, to help them solve any problems that may arise during their stay in Florence. Our students are regularly updated about cultural events taking place in Florence and elsewhere in Italy. The school offers a free booking service for Florentine museum tickets.
The school offers a minimum of 10 extracurricular activities per month. The activities taking place in the school premises are free of charge (history of Florence, Italian music, Italian movies, international dinners, group games, lectures on different topics of the Italian culture, like history, geography, politics, society, traditions, cooking, events, etc.).
All other activities are to be paid for (visits to museums, trips to other Tuscan cities, dinners in typical restaurants, wine tasting, etc.). In order to give each student the possibility to join in, all activities take place after 4:00 PM and the weekends.
On the top floor of the school is a wonderful terrace, from which you can enjoy a breath-taking view of Florence and where, from April to October, the school regularly organizes dinner parties with its students.
A computer at the school is available from 9.00 AM to 6 PM, and only for our students, to use the Internet, check and send e-mails. Once a week a teacher will be available to students for one hour in the afternoon to answer queries and solve doubts concerning grammar and vocabulary. This is a free service.
The school offers students a free accommodation search for any kind of request and for the duration of the stay in Florence. The different types of accommodation available are: single or double rooms in student apartments with use of kitchen or in a family home with use of kitchen, breakfast or half board (breakfast and dinner).
