The School

Our school is located in the heart of Arezzo, one of Tuscany’s most beautiful cities. We offer students the opportunity to improve their language skills through flexible and  personalized courses in a relaxed, familiar and at the same time  professional atmosphere.  The school offers  intensive courses, private, semi-private  lessons and afternoon and evening courses. Our weekly intensive courses are the most popular option for our students.  These are taught in small groups, max 10 students per class, ideal number to give everyone the opportunity to participate actively in the course.  The extracurricular activities in the afternoon (visits to the city of Arezzo or small villages in the province, wine tastings, visits to local craftsmen…)  provide students practice Italian language all day and  discover our region and culture.
