At Linguaviva in Florence the Italian standard course is designed for participants who need to improve their Italian skills for general use. If you have previous knowledge of Italian on your first day at school you take a written, listening and oral placement test, so that we can place you in the appropriate group for your language level.
If you are beginner student, you will immediately start with your first Italian class.
According to the Common European Framework we offer A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 levels corresponding to 13 levels of Linguaviva Learning Scale ranging from complete beginner to advanced. Check our chart to identify your starting level and to assess how long you may need to study in order to reach your required level. Each level can be completed in 4 weeks. At the end of each level, after successful completion of a test you can progress to the next level.
Group sizes are small and you will be able to develop your Italian skills, focusing on listening, speaking, reading and writing.
The aim of the course is to develop your practical and communication skills in Italian. By learning and practising Italian in fun and focused lessons you will increase your confidence in using Italian, consolidate your language knowledge and achieve greater fluency.
Teachers will use a range of teaching techniques including whole class teaching and group and pair work. During the course you will use a textbook which you can purchase at school and your teacher will provide extra learning material for each class.
As no translation is used in the classroom you will be making rapid progress in Italian.
When you have successfully completed your course you can ask for a Linguaviva certificate showing the length of the course and the language level achieved.
