Students interested in applying for these courses can choose among three different course-options, where tuition in class is combined with an afternoon program of cultural trips and activities: a two-week intensive course for beginners; a three-week course for beginners, intermediate and advanced; a combination of both courses, for a total duration of five weeks. Students can learn Italian language, both written and oral, by getting into direct contact with the traditions and culture of the territory.
