Classroom environments, lectures, guided curricula, and private tutoring, keep you on a steady path for learning Italian. Students practising on their own – as admirable as that is – commonly plateau as resources for tailored programs are scarce. The value of support from professionals and their ability to customise an approach that suits your learning style is incomparable.
There is no better resource than the source itself. Nearly every major city in Italy provides programs for individuals wishing to take classes and courses and learn Italian in Italy – be they novices or advanced students.
Here are my recommendations for programs across Italy.

The Italian School of Florence is located inside the former Oratory of San Pierino, creating a breathtaking atmosphere surrounded by Florentine art from the late sixteenth century. Its beauty isn’t a surprise since it is also home to Galleria dell ’Accademia. If that wasn’t enough, it’s only a few metres from the Duomo and the iconic Michelangelo’s David.
Learning Italian in Florence schools teaches you this nuanced culture from all vantages – from studying the language within the walls of the school to appreciating the Italian artistic renaissance from outside them. Art lovers apply.
