The courses are held in the morning, and are supplemented with conversation practice, seminars and excursions in the afternoon. The 4 daily lessons, each 50 minutes long, are subdivided into two blocks with two different teachers. A 30-minute break is scheduled between the two blocks.
On the first Monday of the course, the participants are divided into homogeneous groups, based on a short written test and a brief conversation with the teachers. Each class has four or five students on average, with a limit of eight.

There are 6 levels scheduled for the language courses:
A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2.

The primary objective of the course is to develop proficiency in the spoken language, with constant attention to the written form and to grammatical aspects. Working in small groups encourages communication and stimulates active participation from all members of the class. During the lesson only Italian is spoken, even at the Elementary 1 level. The presence of two teachers who alternate in the classes favors a high level of academic progress. Our teachers make wide use of material especially designed by the school to complement the textbook. Newspaper articles, audio-visual material, expressive games and theatrical techniques help bring the language alive. The teachers are also present at the afternoon activities: common lunches and dinners, excursions and guided visits, meetings with local artists and artisans. This makes for a vital link between classwork and outside activities.
