objective of our courses in Italian is to place every student,even those
who are outright beginners, in a siutation of being able to communicate
in Italian. In what way? First of all by forming small classes
of similar-level students. This approach is fundamental in
allowing the assimilation and learning of Italian in an atmosphere which
is friendly, relaxed, and –why not?- entertaining. Our instructors,
highly specialized and with years of experience in teaching the Italian
language to foreigners, follow an approach to communication which promotes
the active participation of the students, and which has communication as
its principal objective.
the courses, the teaching materials used were for the most produced by
our instructors, and are appropriate always to the needs and interests
of each individual group of students:specialized tests, grammatical exercises,
games, dramatizations and role-playing, songs, newspaper and magazine articles,
and videos. All are put forth to develop the ability to communicate
in the Italian language.
To learn a
language more quickly, a student needs to discover that much of what
is learned in class may be used quickly in the experience of daily life
– in a bar, in a restaurant, in stores, etc. This is much easier
when a student takes a course in a city like Treviso or Feltre, cities
not overwhelmed by masses of tourists, where store-owners,waiters and residents
are always well disposed to listen to our students when they are trying
to ask something in Italian.
