Overview
More
The only Italian Language School in Bologna specialised in teaching only Italian to foreigners. Enhance your Italian communication skills with our experienced teachers. Guaranteed 8 class-levels at any time. From Day 1, students (even beginners!) Speak Italian. At Cultura Italiana, special care is devoted to language expression and communication alongside grammar. After lessons, we organise many activities to help students maximise integration with local Italians. Students participate in activities tailored to their interest (e.G a doctor/ architect/ teacher/student can meet a fellow Italian and visit their work-place / school) and activities designed for all, on Italian life and culture. We have accommodation in private flats or with Italian families near the school. Established in 1980, Cultura Italiana is the only authentic Italian school in Bologna recognised by the Italian State, accredited by the Region and a member of ASILS (Association of Italian Language Schools) We are not like the other English language-focused schools in Bologna that sell Italian lessons to tourists. We specialise in teaching only Italian as a second language to adults and upon request, groups of high school students and private lessons for children. Price : 497EUR/person, 2-week Intensive Italian group course (6-12people). Price : 481EUR/person, 1-week Italian Language+Cooking and Wine tasting See site for special discounts and other course combinations.

This was such an amazing intensive! The teachers always made me feel welcomed and challenged us to speak as much Italian as possible. I would definitely recommend it!

At Cultura Italiana, you learn to communicate in Italian in an authentic way. This is our strength and differentiating factor to other language schools that cater to tourists. From our experience, a student's grammar knowledge doesn't always correspond to their ability to communicate. For this,...More
