Italian Plus Culture

Italian Plus CultureIf your love for Italy is so big that you are passionate about every aspect of our culture, not only our language, this is the right course for you. 

You will have the chance to get completely immersed into Italian lifestyle, culture, and society, so as to become a real Italian!

In addition to the Italian course (group or one-on-one), in which you will learn more about the language structures and communication skills in two different moments of each class, you may choose to take 4 classes or 6 classes per week of Italian culture: literature, art history, cinema, among many others.

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.

To dive into the Italianness even more, you will have the chance to join our optional cultural activities, offered by AEF to all students of Italian courses: a precious opportunity to discover more about Italian art, music or food&wine culture.

Your experience will start with a school tour in Palazzo Niccolini. The next step will be a walking tour to discover Florence, and the following weeks, you can join us for a pizza night at 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.

At the end of each month, our Music and Opera students and instructors will give a concert at school.
