Learn Italian in Venice, Italy
Venice is a city of culture, history, grace and charm. Our school in Venice offers not only Italian language courses, but also a very popular Italian Art course, combining art history classes with guided visits to museums and galleries within Venice, enabling students to immerse themselves in Italian and explore the culture and history of this beautiful city. Learn Italian in Venice, soak up the culture and fall in love with this city.
The class mix was fascinating...German, Danish, Russian,Chinese, Japanese, Brazilian and Czech among others. Some who had attended the course for two months on a full-time basis were quite fluent.
I had two excellent teachers and the time simply flew by, which must mean I was having fun. All the students took the course seriously and did the homework every day. The social programme was excellent too.
The teachers were great and the accommodation was good.
The teachers were excellent and gifted with controlling the learning experience along with supportive and fun. I would definitely join this class/school again.
The office staff at the school in Venice were and my teacher wonderful.
Our school in Venice
Our Italian school in Venice is located in an 18th century palace, in the very centre of Venice, just a short walk from the famous ‘Rialto Bridge’. There are 10 well-equipped classrooms and a beautiful terrace – very popular at break time - with magnificent views over the city. All accommodation is in historic Venice, or else on the ‘Lido’, mostly within walking distance of the school.
In addition to Italian language courses, our school in Venice also offers students an extensive ‘Culture’ program, including 5 activities per week - walking tour of Venice, guided visits, Italian film evenings in the school, wine-tasting, bicycle tours around the ‘Lido’, plus trips to Padova, Treviso and other locations. Venice is a wonderful location in which to combine an Italian language class with an experience of Italian culture, both past and present - somewhere ‘truly Italian’ and truly unique.

I'm going back to Venice!
Yes, we all know, Venice is absolutely amazing, and during my one week language course there I almost couldn't believe it was for real. There are some clichés about Venice that I will try to avoid, mainly because they are true - it is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and therefore there are also an abundant number of tourists, some places can also be quite pricey. But at the end of your experience in Venice that won't be what you keep in mind, especially if you try to move away from the crowds.
It is surprisingly easy to find yourself in a peaceful street where you can actually experience the Venetian way of life (and practise your Italian language skills)! Exploring a bit further than the Grand Canal also gives you a nice perception of Venice; islands like Giudecca, Murano or Lido are only a boat trip away and aren't usually so packed.
