Italiano insieme: Group course

italian group courseWith Italiano insieme, you will learn Italian language in small classes of 12 students or less, coming from all over the world.

Classes are divided into two parts, one hour and a half each. The first part is dedicated to how the language and its structures work; the second one will be focusing on improving your oral skills and special care will be given to aspects like vocabulary, communication and interaction, pronunciation.

Conversation will be held in mixed groups of students of different levels, so as to encourage interaction, and personal and cultural exchange.

The course is available for a minimum of 2 weeks, but it 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 language classes, in the afternoon you can join our cultural activities that will make you feel even more part of the city life and the AEF community. Your experience will start with a tour to get to know the school and the staff. You will then discover the city with an instructor-led walking tour and, in the following weeks, you will have the opportunity to learn more about other aspects of Italian culture: a night out to a local pizzeria, lessons on art and Florentine museums, a masterclass on opera, an Italian wine tasting, a show at the Opera Theater or another venue in Florence, and Italian language activities. Every month, our courses will end with a concert by our Music and Opera students and instructors.

According to your needs, you may also combine a group course with one-on-one classes. Please check the Intensive Italian course.
