Vivere la lingua – Live the language with us!
Our idea of teaching a new language is that it has to be effective while being at the same time funny and relaxing! These are the best conditions for a good learning process. Our lessons focus on developing communicative skills as well as on strengthening linguistic skills. We focus on practicing and implementing immediately the new learned skills in the communicative abilities of every student. Role-playing games, amusing linguistic games, idiomatic expressions, comics, newspaper articles, Italian songs… – our highly motivated and well-trained teachers will surprise students every day with something new. In addition, our special programs “vivere la lingua” consists in Italian experiences outside the classroom, taking students to a full immersion in Italian.
