Why Study with us  - Small groups, university-educated and experienced native speaker (or equivalent) instructors provide the ideal environment to learn a foreign language. Our instructors bring cultural background of Italian life and traditions to the classroom, in conjunction with knowledge of current events of the country.

Our Language courses, based on the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), range from Beginning to Advanced level and provide a full program of study, all year around. The CEFR organizes language proficiency in six levels, A1 to C2, which can be regrouped into three broad levels. 

See course pages for further details and correspondence with ICC levels.
