Italian language and culture course

This is an ideal way to enjoy learning and have full benefit from practising your skills and interacting with other students. Your teacher will give you clear guidance and many opportunities to communicate effectively in Italian through a range of activities. S/he will work with you as a group, in pairs and individually, making your classes even more varied. Because of the small size of the groups, we can give personal care and attention to each student. This allows you to gain maximum benefit from the time available through intensive exposure to all aspects of the Italian language.
Each Koinè school also offers a varied program of social and cultural activities in the afternoon, including effective insights into the Italian way of life.

To all those students who can spend several months in Italy and give solid foundation to their language skills while improving the knowledge of the Italian culture, we offer a special price for a 3, 6, 9 or 12 months program in the frame of the Italian Language and Culture Course.
