The Accademia Europea di Firenze is one of the fastest growing schools in Florence, located in the center of the historic part of the city, it is a short walk from many of Italy’s most important sights, as well as, restaurants, shops, pubs, parks, night clubs and other places. The AEF staff will welcome you and take care of any arrangements you may need to make your stay the most enjoyable and comfortable possible.
Starting with the beginner course, the students learn rapidly and effectively to comprehend and interact effectively in the language they are studying. The advanced levels are designed for students who, for their job or their studies, need to gain more elaborate communication skills, in both context and formality. The course times are arranged so as to be compatible with work/school schedules. Our centralized location near the Piazza del Duomo is convenient for those who live or work in the city center. For those who have minimal free time during the week, the "once a week" course will facilitate attending classes on Saturdays.
Our foreign language teachers are all native speakers in the language they are speaking, therefore it enables the students to learn in the most effective way possible. All teachers are trained in the didactic of their mother-tongue and are experienced educators. They are constantly updated on language teaching techniques and methodologies. Each language course offers both beginning and advanced levels.
Aside from regular courses our school offers a rich program of optional language and cultural activities (concerts, seminars, films, visits to museums and farms, language games) as well as extra-curricular and recreational activities (parties, dinners, food and wine tasting, sports, etc.) which are offered every week to ensure not only the enjoyment and cultural fulfillment of the students, but also to encourage them to practice the language in all of its aspects.
