The School

Our Italian school for foreigners, Il Centro was born in 1986. It is situated in Brera, one of the most fascinating and characteristic districts of Milan. It has been offering flexible language courses for all levels and specific sectoral linguistic needs for 30 years. Thanks to our experience, we are able to offer accuracy and reliability, a competent and highly qualified staff and the familiarity with all the needs and problems our students from all over the world might encounter. Each student gets accompanied in choosing the course most suitable for them along with a continuous tutoring of a humanistic-affective approach. We build up an itinerary for our students to discover the language and culture of Italy and Milan and organize free activities in order to enhance the Italian language, writing and culture, as well as guided tours and various group activities.
