General Italian 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 organised following the standards of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

   Online courses!

Even though Piccola accademia di italiano is still closed, we are happy to provide online courses for those of you who wish to continue with your language studies!

We are happy to announce our special 1 week intensive conversation courses “Un tuffo nell’italiano!” – from August 31st to September 5th!

Please visit our Conversation course page!

The next term of our “usual” General Italian courses (12 week courses, once per week) will start on the week of September 20th. Calendar will be available at the end of August.

For our online classes we use the videoconferencing platform Zoom. The teacher sends a link to students every week to connect with the class.
You need: a computer or I-Pad and an internet connection (you can also join the meeting with your Smartphone but it would be easier with your computer).
You do not have to have a Zoom account to attend a Zoom meeting. You will be prompted to download the software, once you have clicked on the link that you have been provided. You may also wish to create an account, but that is not required to participate in a Zoom meeting).
