Italian language schools in Venice and Trieste, Italy
Our mission is to offer quality language training programs to satisfy the needs of any type of student in a friendly and professional environment. Our courses will prepare you for the CILS and CELI certifications, with a full immersion in the Italian culture. Our goal is to provide linguistic and communicative aspects of the Italian language and provide a cultural atmosphere to charm all your senses.
We have students from all over the world and of all ages. It is impossible to find a single nationality in our classrooms. We encourage the use of Italian not only in lessons, but also in many other activities outside of the class, during daily Venetian life or during social and cultural activities organized in the afternoons. The school is located in the historic center of Venice, in a century-old building with a large terrace located near the famous Piazza Campo Santa Margherita. This is a very important meeting place for students and Italians; you can go shopping or take a break at any of the local bars.
Since 2005, we also offer Italian language courses in Trieste; a beautiful town located between the mountains and the sea, near the Slovenian border. In this natural landscape it is possible to enjoy the local culture, enjoy a good wine and practice speaking Italian seaside. In both our schools in Venice and Trieste we share the same philosophy: a rich culture in perfect locations offering personalized, high quality and efficient language courses.
