The Leonardo da Vinci school, founded in 2008, offers a wide and varied range of courses that aim to satisfy the most diverse requirements. The main objective of the course is to make sure that students are able to communicate effectively and to feel right at home in Italy, as soon as possible. All Italian language courses and culture courses are taught by graduate teachers and native speakers of Italian.
Italian language courses: the intensive course, a small group of maximum 12 people, allows students to participate actively in lessons conducted by experienced and qualified teachers. The duration of the courses varies from one week, for those who do not have much time but still want to dive into the Italian lifestyle, and long-term courses, for those who wish to deepen their knowledge and stay in Italy while taking advantage of special discounts. In addition to this, the super intensive courses also provide daily lessons for those who want to personalize their experience.
We guarantee a maximum of 12 students per class to optimize the quality of the courses. For more information you can also visit our website: www.ciaoitaly-turin.com/en

"I had the opportunity to study at Ciao Italy for over a year to learn Italian and prepare for the B2 CILS exam. Due to lockdowns, I have been as yet unable to take the exam, but thanks to Ciao Italy, I now feel very confident in my speaking, listening, reading, and writing. I took the group intensive classes for many months and really enjoyed them, after which I switched to private tutoring which was also very helpful. I will recommend Ciao Italy in the future!"
