The program is open to all students, with no restrictions regarding age or nationality. With 6 different course levels, we can accommodate a broad range of student needs; from introducing beginners to the language, to developing the knowledge and skills of those who have studied Italian previously.

Florence is The perfect city for studying Italian. Among the varied and important reasons are: the purity of the Italian language spoken here, Florence's extraordinary cultural past, the great number of museums and monuments, Florence's central location which allows easy travel (one or two hours) to cities like Siena, Pisa, Venice and Rome.

Our approach to teaching Italian is direct. From the first day of class, Italian becomes the language between the teacher and the students and among the students. The communication in Italian is pervasive and therefore students automatically develop their ability to understand and speak. The small number of students in class helps to highly improve the performance of each participant.

This teaching method works effectively due to our teachers who have been selected for their specialization in teaching Italian to foreigners and for their natural qualities of communication. The relationship they establish each day with their classes leads our students to achieve good results an enjoyable and efficient way.

The "Italiano Insieme" program is offered at six different levels: Beginner, Elementary, Intermediate 1, Intermediate 2, Advanced 1, Advanced 2. Classes are held every morning from Monday through Friday. The minimum duration for this program is two weeks. Classes are composed by students of different cultures, nationalities and mother tongues so as to stimulate interesting conversations and to enrich the relationships between all participants. Maximum number allowed in class is 12 students, but the average is usually around 7.
