Our General Italian courses are designed to provide the opportunity to attend top quality Italian language classes, while enjoying all that the fascinating city of Siracusa has to offer.
Each course is in line with the Common European Framework of Reference for languages (A1 – A2 – B1 – B2 – C1 – C2).
Whether you are an absolute beginner, or a fluent speaker, we will offer you a course which reflects your personal needs. All our courses are based on the communicative method, giving you the opportunity to practise your spoken Italian, develop your comprehension of the language, extend your use of vocabulary and enhance your understanding of grammatical structure.
All the teachers at the Italian Academy are highly qualified native speakers who aim to make the experience of studying Italian as enjoyable and productive as possible.
We also offer long-stay courses throughout the year which prepare our students for the CILS certification of the University of Siena, which is a prestigious and widely recognised certification of Italian language competence.
