General Italian group courses
Groups are perfect to study languages! Students are involved in task-based activities, which will help them to improve their actual use of the Italian language by doing and solving various tasks and problems in a fun and pleasant learning environment. The emphasis is on speaking, listening and reading tasks. We will also work on grammar, writing and pronunciation. Our course programs are organized following the standards of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
If you want a course that suits your particular professional and personal needs, as well as your own time schedule, we would recommend you to choose our tailor-made private tutorial programme.
