Please see here some feedback from our former students about the Italian language courses, Italian culture and Art courses organized by Istituto Galilei

I stayed 3 weeks studying in the Italian language courses in Florence at Istituto Galilei and enjoyed every minute of it. Studying in Florence is a great experience, the school team is very nice and helpful, their assistance is too important during the stay.

A native Russian speaker, I have studied various foreign languages and know the difference between an ordinary school and an exceptional one. The combination of their tailored approach, individual classes, unique immersion method, focus on immediate application of the learned material in a natural setting and fantastic teachers make Istituto Galilei truly stand out among other language schools in Florence.

 I spent 2 weeks studying there as soon as I got here and after that I was magically speaking. The two professors with whom I’ve been studying during these Italian language courses were that kind of increadible people with whom I could spend months hearing and talking to. It was a pleasure to learn.

Beatriz Stilman

Former Student

I spent a week at this school in order to improve my Italian, just in one week, thanks to my teachers, I raised the level and strengthened all the bases of this beautiful language. This result can’t be achieved following an Italian language course in a normal school for such a short period of time.”

Tigran Grishkian

Former Student

“I highly recommend the Italian Language Institute “Galileo Galilei” to anyone who wants to use the Italian language in a competent, agile and secure manner. I have been taking individual classes with the school for 4 weeks. I am able to converse, write and read well, at what I would say is an intermediate level. I am able to express facts but also deliver them in a way that conveys my feelings and perspectives. I can now enjoy the benefits of being immersed in daily Italian life. I feel this is in large part due to the individual (one-on-one) instruction that the school offers. Of course the school offers other formats for their Italian language courses in Florence, such as group or small-group courses. As a person who works in a professional, corporate environment, my time is very important. I want to develop my Italian quickly but with confidence. The Galileo Galilei institute does this well. My lessons are tailored to my learning objectives. The institute is very much oriented to delivering quality service, customized to what their clients need. ”
