Italian in Siena

Intensive Italian courses consist of 4 Italian lessons. They are available all year round and you can learn Italian in Siena for any length of time. Students take a written and spoken placement test in order to assess the most appropriate language level and the groups are small (5-10 students). The primary aim is to improve the student’s communicative ability in all areas of the Italian language (grammar, vocabulary, reading and comprehension), with particular emphasis on conversation. The teaching method favours active participation and interaction in the classroom, promoting the student’s integration, both linguistic and cultural. By the end of the course participants will receive a certificate of attendance stating their degree of Italian.

Students are encouraged to take full advantage of their stay in Italy from a linguistic and cultural point of view. In order to facilitate this, the school offers a series of optional cultural and social activities as an integral part of the programme. Transportation, food and some entrance tickets may require additional payments.

We provide our customers with different accommodation options (private rooms, shared/individual flats, hotels) near the school.

In order to apply for a course, please send us a deposit of 150. Once your course has been confirmed, you will receive instructions on how to pay your balance.
