Our Intensive Italian courses are designed to provide the opportunity to maximize your Italian language skills, in the enchanting surroundings of the city of Siracusa. We are proud to say our school and our city has already been described by so many of our students as the ideal place to study Italian. With its quiet but friendly atmosphere and unique history.
All our courses adhere to the Common European Framework of Reference for languages (A1 – A2 – B1 – B2 – C1 – C2).
This course is suited to all, from absolute beginners to fluent speakers: it is designed to offer you a course which reflects your personal learning needs. Our teaching method is based on the communicative approach, which allows to practice your spoken fluency, develop your language comprehension, extend your use of Italian 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.
Upon request we also offer targeted preparation for the CILS certification of the University of Siena, which is a prestigious and widely recognised certification of Italian language competence. The Italian Academy is also an accredited CILS examination centre, so you may decide to sit the exam upon course completion.
