Koinè Center has Schools in Florence , Lucca , Bologna and Camogli at the seaside to provide our students with a wide range of locations and language courses as well, and to keep our schools cozy and friendly at the same time. Each city is internationally known for its historical heritage, culture, landscape, architecture and lifestyle and is a perfect base for your stay, with many things to do and see. Koinè Center also offers specific " Italian language and Culture Programme ” for each location.
Koinè Center is one of the first schools in Italy to have adopted a communicative teaching method developed through an intense, in depth-research carried out by the teaching staff in person. Their work led to the production of didactic materials and to the conduction periodic seminars and training/refresher courses.
THE PROGRAM - Our courses offer a program that lets the students interact in different communicative contexts of daily life and address sociocultural issues (art, literature, cinema, music, information).
OUR METHOD - Our teaching method is based mainly on inductive and creative activities aimed to develop the autonomy of the students, emphasizing their active engagement and self-questioning, encouraging them to take a leading role during the lesson, while the teacher will act as a facilitator creating a favourable learning environment. The lexical, grammatical and morphosyntactic aspects are always analyzed within a real context through the use of authentic materials in order to acquire the main functional skills – firstly in speaking and listening and then, especially at more advanced levels, in reading and writing - thus avoiding the risk of a passive and notional knowledge of the language disconnected from the ability to communicate effectively.
