Italian language summer courses

The Accademia Italiana is an international school that in addition to accepting students from every region of Italy also welcomes students from all over the world.
The department of Italian language and culture has been created within the Accademia Italiana in order to assist the foreign students.

In the months of June, July and August the Accademia Italiana of Florence offers various levels of Italian language courses (basic, intermediate and advanced) to.
These courses are directed at all foreign students interested in the Italian language and are also strongly recommended for those foreign students who will attend the academic courses at the AI beginning in September.

Each month of study corresponds to a specific level (basic, intermediate, advanced).
Each month includes 80 lesson hours (intensive course). It is also possible to attend only 40 hours per month, and private, individual lessons are also available upon request.

The course level will be determined by a preliminary placement test (those with no previous knowledge will be placed directly in the basic level).
- The basic level begins with elementary notions and an introduction to the Italian language, arriving at the main language structures.
- The intermediate level will go more in depth into the Italian language, enriching the vocabulary, the grammar and improving pronunciation.
- The advanced level will concentrate in a particular way on the study of written composition and the use of the Italian language in given situations.

Conversation, the use of audio-visual aides, viewing of films in Italian language followed by discussion and the approach to written texts in Italian literature will all make up an integral part of these courses at each level.

The courses of Italian language are backed up by cultural and recreational activities in which both Italian and foreign students are involved. The three levels are all held each month of the year except for December.
These courses may be taken together with other summer courses, allowing for the learning of the Italian language with an artistic experience.

Duration: from 1 to 3 months
