All our Italian language and culture courses are organized according to the Common European Framework of Reference from A1 to C2, they are designed for groups or for individual students, at the school or at a company location and are available throughout the year. Our students have different nationalities, ages, professions and motivations but a common interest: the desire to learn, improve or certify their knowledge of the Italian language.
For those who study the Italian language because it is their passion, group courses are ideal because the 20 lessons per week combine verbal and written activities, listening, games, stimulating reads, interesting videos, songs, and opportunities to develop language fluency and accuracy. Each course is unique, the students are the real protagonists of the school, the teachers choose the materials, prepare the activities, show the way, and facilitate learning. Every morning during group lessons, two expert teachers take turns. The change makes the lessons more stimulating and helps to improve listening and pronunciation.
The one-to-one courses are the optimal choice for those who need a more flexible course and/or have little time since they are tailored to the knowledge and needs of the specific student.
For those who do not wish to give up group work but wish to optimize their time in town, the school offers combined courses (group + one-to-one courses).
A Door to Italy also offers professional courses, designed specifically for those who use the Italian language for work: business Italian, refresher courses for interpreters and translators, training and apprenticeship for teachers L2/LS.
Teachers use the communicative method with humanistic-emotional elements and Cooperative Learning, which makes it possible in a short time, in a pleasant and motivating environment, to develop evenly all four skills required by the Common European Framework: speaking, listening, reading and writing.
Through games, listening, speaking and writing, the student will acquire mastery of the language, learning to communicate in increasingly complex everyday situations and in an increasingly fluent and accurate manner.
