The Accademia Italiana is an international school with students coming from all over the globe. This is why it created a top level Department of Italian Language and Culture, whose activities include summer courses in both Florence and Rome.
In the months of June, July, and August, this Department offers a variety of courses in Italian language and culture, aimed at students with different levels of competence in the subject.
Each month is devoted to a different level and includes 40 hours of teaching (regular course) or 80 hours (intensive course) . Additionally, it is possible to attend individual, one-to-one tailor made lessons.
A placement test determines whether the student should attend the beginners', intermediate or advanced class.
Regardless of the level, each course includes the following activities:
- an approach to written texts in Italian;
- use of audio-visual aids;
- viewing of films in Italian language followed by discussions.
There are also a number of leisure and cultural activities, which foreign students are encouraged to share with their Italian colleagues.
