General Italian Course

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 – beginners to C1 advanced).

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.
