Italian Language Courses


To know another language means having a second soul. (Charlemagne)

Language is the product of a complex cultural process, and the way of speaking of a people expresses much more than the simple words that make up the sentences. It tells us how that people think, how they interpret the world. For this reason, AEF Italian courses are a vehicle for understanding culture and lifestyle and they connect students to the context in which they live: Florence and its inhabitants.
Our method is purely experiential and includes lessons in class and lessons and visits to monuments and museums, typical shops, artisans, sports, cultural and linguistic exchanges with Italian students, meetings with Florentine families and much more. Our offer includes courses for all levels (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2) and AEF is also the exam center for the CILS Certificate, recognized by the Universit√† per Stranieri di Siena. The courses are structured in 4-week sessions; on the first day of the course, students take an entrance test to check their level and are placed in classes of up to 12 people. On the last day of the course, a final exam is held to allow access to the next level.

The Accademia Europea di Firenze is an International School of Italian Arts, Language and Culture.
Founded in 2005 as a school of Italian for foreigners, over time it has expanded its offer to Italian art and culture, music and dance.
The AEF also offers Certificate Programs in Voice & Opera, Drawing & Painting and Dance, and a Certificate Program in Italian Language and Culture, Study Abroad Programs in collaboration with prestigious American Universities, Summer and Winter Programs and Joint Academic Programs developed with university institutions all over the world.
The experiential approach and the quality of the professors make this school, strongly rooted in Italian history and culture but endowed with European academic standards, an international environment in the city of the Renaissance and of widespread beauty.
