This work and study programme in gardening is targeted at students over 18 to 30 years old who would like to combine their Italian course with a work stay in in Florence. You will attend an intensive Italian course during the first 4 weeks and thereafter start your working stage (8 weeks; 4 hours per day). This is not a paid job. Our Italian courses in Florence consist of four Italian lessons per day. Courses are open to all levels, from beginners to advanced according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. On the first day of lesson it will be an entrance test. Groups are very small (6-10 students). The teaching method is based on the communicative approach focusing on those aspects of language for achieving effective linguistic interaction.
We provide our customers with different accommodation options (private rooms, shared/individual flats, hotels) near the school.
Our school in Florence founded in 1978 is recognised by the Italian Education Ministery and it is characterized by is the care and attention with which staff members treat each and every course participant, coping with their needs and trying to satisfy their expectations. The atmosphere is cheerful and informal. The school is located in the historic centre of Florence, in the neighborhood known as Santo Spirito, where artisans and artists keep working outside the traditional mass-circuits. Santo Spirito still keeps intact its economic and social character. Piazza Santo Spirito is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful squares in the city, as well as a meeting place for Florentines. The school organizes 2 social activities a week, some are free and others not which take place outside normal lesson time. There are books and movies available from the school library which can be used by students in the afternoon.
