The teachers are all university graduates, and are specialized in the teaching of Italian as a foreign or second language. They are particularly experienced in instructing adult students. The courses are geared to those who want a cultural vacation in Tuscany while learning how to get by in Italian in day-to-day situations, as well as to those who wish to learn Italian for their work or studies through a full immersion program. The communicative method and the friendly and personal atmosphere of the lessons make our courses a very special human and cultural experience that`s different each time.

The school’s secretary offers constant and active support to students, advising them in their choice of lodgings or planning their trip.
