Intensive Italian language course. The intensive Italian language course is our standard course, and consists of 4 Italian lessons a day, totaling 20 lessons a week.

The lessons are held from Monday to Friday in groups of no more than 14 students, led by qualified teachers, who are passionate about their work.
The lessons begin every Monday for students that already have some knowledge of the Italian language, and every two weeks for absolute beginners.

Our lessons are principally based on spoken communication, but also deal with the more formal aspects of the language (lexis/vocabulary and grammar). Lots of time is dedicated to activities that encourage dialogue and discussion about various topics, from art and literature, to modern city culture.

Text books are provided by the school and are included in the price of the course. The teachers use not only these text books, but also other support materials (newspaper articles, songs, films and other authentic material from everyday life) to give students the opportunity to engage with different forms of contemporary communication and to improve their communication abilities.

Our golden rule is: the teacher is the director, but the group of students are the real protagonists of the lessons.

RECOMMENDED FOR: those students who want to either start or go on studying Italian through an intensive program that still leaves plenty of time to discover the artistic and historic marvels of the territory and also to have some fun!

The lesson groups are made up of people from all over the world and from different age groups.

Apart from studying the language, there is still lots of time for culture, sport and fun! The school organizes loads of extracurricular activities in the afternoons and evenings, allowing students to discover the city, visit museums and exhibitions and to enjoy daily life! In addition, there's a cinema discussion group, weekend excursions, visits to typical wine cellars and workshops, group 'aperitivi' drinks, and trattoria dinners…because part of learning a language is also living and enjoying the culture!

My experience with the Italian language intensive course in Milan:

"In 2007 I decided to live for a month in Italy. I wanted to discover the culture and people, but also learn the language. I found Leonardo da Vinci school on the net. I was not able to say a single word in Italian and I decided it was the perfect solution for a person like me. I started lessons in April 2007 and after a month with 4 hours a day of lessons, I reached a level enough high to lead an ordinary life in Milan. I liked it so much that I went back in 2009 and 2011 for two months.
If I were to give advice to a person who’s looking for an Italian language school, I would say immediately: "Try Scuola Leonardo da Vinci. Teachers are just brilliant, kind and accessible, the lessons are original, after school you can have fun with other students who come from everywhere, but also with the teaching staff of the school. Because learning a language is not just about learning grammar, it is mainly applying it in everyday life. "That 's what I did in school Leonardo da Vinci. And I have no regret!"

My experience with the Italian language intensive course in Siena:

"Initially I enrolled in the standard course only for three weeks, but then I liked the school so much that I extended my stay. At the end of three weeks, it became three months. I especially enjoyed the excursions and the lessons in the afternoon, which allowed students to practice the language."
