Our Courses

I love the language, that soft bastard Latin,
Which melts like kisses from a female mouth,
And sounds as if it should be writ on satin,
With syllables which breathe of the sweet South,
And gentle liquids gliding all so pat in,
That not a single accent seems uncouth […]
George Gordon Byron

Our courses of Italian focus on the learner and the knowledge and language skills previouly acquired.
What we aim at is that students attending our Italian classes should learn to express themselves correctly and effectively and be able to interact with Italians in every type of communication and cultural context.

Our main concern is the students’ satisfaction and their maximum progress. This is why we have chosen a flexible class design which enables us to meet more effectively the needs and requirements of the diverse groups and of the individual in a group.

The small class size (4/5 students on average, and a maximum of 8) allows the teacher to monitor participants with particular care, and guarantees each student individual attention and an active participation in the learning process.

The first day of the course at Culturforum students are first welcomed by the director and the staff and soon afterwards take a preliminary test (a written grammar test and an interview) to identify their general knowledge and the specific area of language they need to improve and determine the appropriate level of their Italian course.

Classes are held in the mornings from Monday to Friday. The afternoons are free for students to take part in excursions and free time activities organised by our language school, socialise or enjoy the wonderful beach.

Preparation for the certification exams in Italian as a foreign language (CILS; CELI; PLIDA) is also available.
At the end of the course students receive a Certificate of Attendance.

Each one-hour lesson runs for 60 minutes.

NB: in groups with fewer than five students the hours are reduced to 15hrs a week; with one student per class they are reduced to 10hrs a week.
