The average group size is six students with a maximum of eight students. Small groups offer the opportunity of a continuous cultural and human exchange between teachers and students in a friendly atmosphere that achieves excellent results in the communication and in the comprehension of the Italian language.
The classes are divided into different levels: beginners, elementary, middle and advanced knowledge. On the first day of the course, a placement test is given to determine the level of each student, with the exception of complete beginners.
There are two aspects of the lessons:
- grammar and communication of the Italian language
- themes of culture, Italian history and society, or any other topic proposed by the students.
