cultural courses in ItalyTo that end, the school encourages its pupils to participate in a wide range of Cultural Courses that promote language learning by developing communication skills in a natural and instinctive manner. Teachers, well-versed and fully-qualified in their chosen field, guide students through the many wonders, secrets and beauties of Italy's history and culture, offering rich insight into both Italian life and the Italian language.

A minimum number of three students is required to activate any Italian Cultural Course. The price of each Cultural Course includes all materials and equipment used but excludes the cost of theatre, cinema and opera tickets.

The course program is determined at the commencement of each Italian Literature Course, based on the specific interests and requirements of the students.
