Italian Language Courses in Poppi:

Our italian language courses take place in a friendly, informal ambience, in direct contact with the everyday life of the little city of Poppi. The students are immersed in a family-like atmosphere both in and out of the classroom. In the shops, in the bars and on the street, the inhabitants of Poppi are always ready to answer a question or to offer a bit of information or explanation to our students, helping them to overcome with ease the psychological barrier of speaking a foreign language. From their very first day in Poppi the students of Italian practice the communicative approach which is the basis of the school's teaching method.

Italian Language Courses structure:

The italian language 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 Italian language 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.

Italian Language Courses levels:

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

Italian Language Courses goal:

The primary objective of the italian language 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.
