The School

Reggio Lingua specializes in Italian language and culture instruction for people of every  age and nationality. Our goal is to spread the Italian language and culture through promoting participation in the Italian way of life.  Our Italian language school maintains a welcoming and familiar atmosphere ideal for learning Italian in a relaxed and fun way. Located in the beautiful historic centre of Reggio Emilia, Reggio Lingua provides the ideal location for  genuine immersion in Italian life outside the world of tourism. Nevertheless, Reggio Emilia is also conveniently located for tourists. From here, you can make day-trips to many towns in North and Central Italy.
