Our Italian language school in Rome runs Italian courses for all levels, from 1-week to 32 weeks in duration.

For this reason, Rome is the ideal location for an Italian language course, undeniably ‘Italian’ in all the best ways, a wonderful place in which to learn the Italian language.

As a first-rate Italian language school, our school in Rome runs a wide range of Italian language courses. You can learn Italian on a Semi-Intensive Italian course with just 15 lessons a week, or do an Intensive or Super Intensive (20 or 30 lessons/week) course, if you want to learn as much Italian as possible during your stay in Rome. Our school in Rome also runs ‘Italian Club 50+’ courses, for students in their fifties and above who prefer to learn Italian with students of a similar age, as well as Business Italian courses, an Italian Cooking and Wine course, Exam Preparation course and Work Experience in Italy program.
Accommodation is in self-catering apartments, shared with students from our school, in private studio apartments and in carefully selected Italian host families. Our school advises students who want to learn Italian as quickly as possible to stay in Italian host families, as the families speak Italian, helping students learn the language skills they study in class. It is also possible to stay with an ‘Italian host’ on a room only basis.
Immerse yourself in Italian culture and really get to know the ‘Eternal City’ by taking part in our school’s activities programme! Our school in Rome tends to offer an activity every day, ranging from Italian film screenings to guided tours of the city and even seminars on interesting aspects of the country’s culture and history! All activities are, of course, optional, but this is certainly a great way to meet other students and make new friends who share your interests!
How to get there
Our Rome school can arrange airport transfers from Rome Fiumicino or Rome Ciampino Airport, if you would prefer to be met on arrival and taken to your accommodation.
7 Insider tips for Rome!
After having lived and studied in Rome for five years, here are some tips on things to do in the Eternal City to discover the authentic Roman culture and make your stay special!
1) PEEP THROUGH THE AVENTIN KEYHOLE TO SEE THE ST. PETER’S BASILICA
Walk up the Aventin hill, away from the main tourist spots, and you will find a long white wall with a large green door leading to the ‘Priority of the Knights of Malta’, a religious order created in the Middle Ages and still active. Just look through the keyhole on the door and you will be amazed at what you can see: a stunning framed view of St. Peter’s Basilica at the end of a beautiful tree-lined path. It is incredible how the keyhole vista lines up perfectly with St. Peter’s cupola!

Loved the course, the methodology, the teacher, the staff. Everything was fantastic and above my high expectations.
I really enjoyed the course and wished that I could have had more than one week!
Very professional, interesting, dynamic. Excellent programme for extra school activities (seminars, excursions, guided tours).
The course was practical but also a lot of fun. I attended primarily as a vacation and found it a great way to spend the week.
I was blessed with a brilliant teacher who pushed me to use the language and I learned more than I thought possible.
It was wonderful! I've learned a lot! I'm going back already.
All the staff at the school, from the secretaries to the teachers, were friendly, helpful and did their best to resolve any problems or queries. I would certainly recommend it to my friends.
I wish I could've stayed longer and hope to do another course one day, perhaps in another part of Italy.
The course is wonderful and structured really well with lots of interaction with other students along with a balanced grammar input. My host family and the accommodation was wonderful.
I enjoyed the 2 weeks with the Club 50+ group very much. All of the students were especially motivated to learn a new language, the group was "molto simpatico", and the extracurricular activities planned by the school were wonderful.
