The Italian plus Culture Course is designed for all those wishing to combine the study of the language with specific aspects of the Italian culture (literature, history of art, cinema, etc...).
In addition to the Italian course, students can choose to attend one more Culture course (2 classes/week), two Culture courses (4 classes/week) or 3 Culture courses (6 classes/week). Although the students themselves can choose the Culture courses they wish to attend, an instructor will evaluate their level and advise them upon their choices. The Italian courses are structured in 4-week sessions; on the first day of class, students take an entrance test to check their level and are placed in classes of up to 12 people. On the last day of class, a final exam is held to allow access to the next level.
Alongside the course, the student is free to benefit from the any of the afternoon activities put on by the school. These comprise of visits to museums and places of interest, film showings, walks through the city, rafting on the Arno and much more… The activities are considered to be an integral part of the educational program, and a teacher is always present. They are free of charge, aside from entrance tickets and possible transport costs. For further information, please consult the calendar.
