|Group Classes for adults|
|Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced, whether you want to learn Italian for business or pleasure, we can help you improve your language skills at a level that suits your needs - in a friendly, informal and lively atmosphere that is totally Italian.
Our classes are conducted exclusively in Italian and provide training in all the basic communication skills – listening, speaking, reading and writing – accompanied by a systematic study of grammar. Through this approach, the student plays a central role by learning through pair and group work, as well as role play. The teacher acts as the facilitator of communication.
The linguistic levels adhere to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages ratified by the Council of Europe. This ensures uniformity and consistency of teaching in line with other language institutions worldwide.
|Levels and descriptions|
|Our Italian group language programme is in accordance with the six levels of Common European Framework of Language Learning:|
