ISTITUTO ITALIANO® makes its own teaching methods available to the students, creating within the group an Italian reality that, with the support of the teachers and the study material, enables the individual student to get to know and learn the Language quickly: from grammatical structures, to vocabulary, syntax and conversation.

Particular attention is paid to pronunciation , expression, use and formation of sentences. Courses take place from Monday to Friday; they start at 09.10 in the morning and at mid morning there is a 20 min. break. Our structure, which is “unique in Florence”, works together with Italian scholastic entities for obtaining the Italian State Diploma, therefore the language experiences of our students will acquire extra validity through the interface with Italian students: the courses also include lessons and co-presence with students of the Italian School.

This particular special approach of our courses will help our students to understand to their best advantage the life and habits of young Italians.

On arrival, students are presented with an assessment test with the aim of correct placement – in complete accordance with QCER – in the class which has the same competence level of the Italian Language, both as a level and module. From that moment on, the student really starts out on the didactic path that will, by using the right instruments, guide them through the subsequent learning stages of grammar and syntax of the Italian Language.
