A door to Italy - The Italian language school for foreigners is based in Genoa, a city overlooking the Gulf of the Ligurian Sea. All teachers are professionals, university graduates and with certifications to teach Italian to foreigners (DILS PG, DITALS, CEDILS). They carry out their work with passion using the communicative method, which motivates the students and encourages them to speak in a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. We offer a wide range of courses, of greater or lesser intensity, individual lessons, courses for language certifications, language refresher courses for interpreters of the European Parliament, sector-specific jargon and language, training and refresher courses for teachers of Italian L2/LS. In addition to language courses, we offer real experiences: tasting, culture and travel tours along with logistics services, selected and varied accommodations, and finally social activities during leisure time, with which to discover the city and its surroundings, more or less famous, such as Cinque Terre, Portofino, Porto Venere, Finale Ligure, Bordighera, Apricale and more.

Why Genoa

Genoa is a city to be experienced... perched between the sea and mountains, between innovation and tradition, it fascinates with its medieval buildings, breathtaking views and crystal clear sea. A stay in Genoa is a total experience, an excursion capable of enticing all 5 senses: the sight of its splendid views and its UNESCO World Heritage buildings, the taste of the Ligurian cuisine, the scent of fresh basil and salt in the days of northern wind, and the touch of its fabrics like that of blue jeans (Genoa blue) fabric that was born in the city port and last but not least the sound of the beautiful songs of the school of Genoese songwriters: Gino Paoli, Ivano Fossati and Fabrizio De Andrè.The surroundings of the city are full of wonders: first of all the famous village of Portofino and the nature preserve of the Cinque Terre.
