Italian Plus Art

italian and art courseIf you study, love or work with the arts, you can combine your passion with one of our Italian language courses: it will be the perfect occasion to take a deep dive into the Italian culture, traditionally rooted in beauty and in every form of art.

Italiano Plus Art is also perfect for you if you want to apply for an art academy or university in the future.

In the Italian language course (group or one-on-one), you will study the language structures in the first half of each class, and the communicative aspect in the second half, with two different native-speaking instructors.

Italian courses are availables for a minimum of 2 weeks, but the course typically is a 4-week long. This structure allows the achievement of a level according to the Common European Framework (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2) and provides a total of 80 lessons, divided into 40 conversation lessons and 40 grammar lessons. In case that the group is composed of less than 3 students, the conversation lessons remain unchanged but there are 24 grammar lessons that also guarantee the achievement of the expected level.

In addition to the Italian course, you may take 4 classes or 6 classes in your favorite artistic disciplines.

In the afternoon you can join our weekly cultural activities, so that you can get to know Florence better and feel an active member of the AEF community.

AEF staff will welcome you in Palazzo Niccolini to show you the school, and take you on a walking tour to discover the city of Florence. Your experience will be enhanced by many occasions in which you can learn more about different aspects of the Italian culture: a pizza night in a local pizzeria, lessons on art and Florentine museums, a masterclass about opera, an Italian wine tasting, a night at the Opera Theater or another venue in Florence, as well as Italian language activities. Every month, our courses will end with a final concert by the Music and Opera students and instructors.
