CHOOSING YOUR ITALIAN COURSE – SOME CONSIDERATIONS
Deciding to study Italian abroad, investing energies and money in such a travel, is an important decision; therefore choosing the right course that best suits your necessities and personal needs is a very important step in the enrollment process.
Strong of our 30 years’ expertise in language tuition, we suggest you to consider the following key points in favour of a personalized approach instead of standard programs,in order to make the best of your study program in Florence:
– When you share your time with about 10 or even more other students, your active participation in class is reduced to only a small fraction of the entire lesson and you may be disappointed with the results. In fact, in the process of language learning, the active practice under the tuition of an experienced teacher makes the main difference. Of course, the grammar and structures need to be studied, but actually learning a language is a very practical matter.
– Another thing to consider is that a group class usually is composed of students with various mother-tongues (such as French, German, Spanish, Russian, Portuguese, English or Japanese) which can be interesting, and may encourage you to speak Italian, but it also slows down the speed of your learning: The effects of these linguistic differences and the fact that each student learns at a different pace could lead to confusion or distraction, depending on the composition of your group.
These are just few of the reasons why we recommend to strenghten your study in Italy with a personalized course, as it allows you to learn 3 to 4 times faster and more thoroughly, because the teachers will be devoting their time and attention to you. The Italian language courses we offer are tailored to your needs and your pace of learning, slowing down when you are tired, speeding up when you are feeling more brilliant.
