It is the perfect destination for both week-long city breaks and longer stays of several months, where you will never tire of things to see and do. It is a city that undeniably ‘Italian,’ and consequently the ideal location in which to learn the language. Where else in Italy can you discover some of the most famous and iconic attractions in Europe, including the Colosseum, Vatican City, the Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps?

As a first-rate Italian language school, our school in Rome runs a wide range of Italian language courses to suit everyone’s preferences. Lessons are taught using a communicative approach, with authentic materials which will enable you to develop your language skills and learn about Italian culture and society.

You can learn Italian on a Semi-Intensive Italian course with just 15 lessons a week or take an Intensive or Super Intensive course, consisting of 20 or 30 lessons per week, to learn at an even faster rate! We also offer an Intensive + mini-group course, where you will join the intensive group for 20 lessons per week and spend an additional 5 lessons learning in groups of a reduced size (2-5 students).

If you prefer individual tuition, why not take a course of Private Lessons? Private lessons are extremely beneficial as not only do they allow your teacher to get to know you and your preferred learning style, but they also give you the opportunity to focus on your weaker areas, or any specific skills that you like! You can even choose an Intensive + Private Lessons course to combine group lessons with individual tuition.

Our school in Rome also runs Italian Club 50+ courses, suitable for students in their fifties and above who prefer to learn Italian with like-minded students of a similar age. We also offer a Club 30 course, which is available to students aged 30-40. Both of these courses combine intensive Italian learning with a programme of cultural activities and excursions!

If you need to use your Italian skills within a business context, our Business Course might just be the perfect option for you. It includes 15 weekly lessons focused around indispensable business skills, such as telephone conversations, company presentations, negotiations and sales.

If you are a fan of Italian food, why not try our school’s Intensive + Cookery course? This course gives students the opportunity to prepare traditional dishes in the home of an Italian family, followed by dinner and a glass of Italian wine!

The course was very practical, in the sense that it employed a total immersion method of teaching giving students the optimum opportunity to hear Italian being spoken and to practice conversing in Italian. The accomodation was good: It was near the school: and it was the type of accomodation that I requested, nothing more nothing less. Just that i'm vey impressed by the way students needs were catered for and the general administrational efficiency of your organisation.

The quality and level of the teaching was excellent and exactly to my taste. I had five different teachers over the two weeks, they were all friendly and considerate, well prepared for the class and eager to present the best side of italian higher education. I was in the advanced class and found it stimulatingly challenging. I enjoyed the stay in Rome enormously and plan to go to Elba and possibly Montpellier next year. I have already recommended your agency to two friends

Course was excellent. I was quickly assessed and put in at a level that was just right. Classes were small and friendly. The teachers only spoke Italian and were very keen to help us get the most from our week. The course material was well thought out and ensured that every pupil was involved and conversed in Italian.

Accommodation was fine. The host couple were lovely and spoke Italian to us every evening. An excellent school, I wish I could have stayed longer.

The course was amazing! I thoroughly enjoyed the time spent in class, and my instructor, Giulia, made the entire experience. I want to commend her on teaching ability. She was wonderful - she kept us engaged and made the experience a positive one from start to finish. Giulia was the best part of my course.

Overall, my experience was wonderful. If I have the opportunity to do this again, I will certainly book agian.

I have done courses at several language schools, and this was the best school I have attended, both in terms of general organisation of the school and activities, and the classes themselves. I enjoyed the structure of the classes, such that every day we worked on listening, speaking and comprehension, with not too much written, but enough to ensure we were able to do so.

I stayed with a host family, half-board. As soon as I arrived, I felt instantly welcomed, and throughout my stay they were friendly and very inclusive. I hope to stay in touch with them even now that I have returned home.

I enjoyed the lessons and found the teachers enthusiastic and helpful. The emphasis was on interaction and communication and less on formal learning. I liked this approach because many aspects of grammar can be learned away from lessons. The school also provided activities in the evenings and at weekends which were enjoyable.

I really enjoyed the course and picked up so much very quickly. I think the fact there is so much emphasis on speaking Italian means you pick it up quicker and feel more confident. Our group became very close through doing so much speaking together and it was great to work with people who were all supportive and encouraging. My group came from all over the world so it was a great opportunity to finds out about other cultures of the world as well as the Italian culture.

The service was great. I started in a higher level class because my conversation was quite good but as I lacked knowledge in the verbs etc area, the teacher suggested I be re-assigned to a lower level which turned out to be better for me.

Highly recommend your service. The will pass on your details to other friends I have met who want to do the same.

It's difficult to accommodate everyone in a class when students are attending for different periods of time, however our teacher, Claudio, mastered this very well and created a great atmosphere which encouraged interaction and stretched people's capabilities without ever putting any pressure. I really enjoyed the atmosphere in the school and would readily return in the future.

The host family very welcoming and attentive to needs without ever being intrusive, well-situated & a lovely atmosphere also. I would definitely recommend this accommodation to any future students.

Overall, a really great experience. The international mix of students and emphasis on speaking Italian really helped everyone make an effeort to speak and improve their level of Italian. I would have no hesitation in recommending this school.

The language course exceeded all my expectations.

I feel I have made good progress thanks to the support of the school. The cultural activities on the 50+ course were outstanding, giving the opportunity to visit Rome and its surrounds with knowledgeable teachers from the school. The accommodation, like the course, exceeded my expectations. I received a warm and friendly welcome from my hosts who were very willing to help with my faltering Italian. I look forward to returning. One of the highlights of the course was the opportunity to make friends from all over the world - with our common language being Italian.

My favourite places to eat in Rome

I consider Rome as my second home. This is where my best friend lives and I try to visit her at least a few times per year. Thanks to her Roman knowledge, I have, over the years, got to know a lot of insider places that only true Romans are able to appreciate. It's often nice to be able to go to places that are mostly tourist-free. I will be recommending these places, which, I hope you will agree, is always interesting! So, read on to discover Rome like a Roman with me... Read more...
