Cultura Italiana is a specialised, well-sought after school. We guarantee a full-immersion in Italian language, communicating in authentic Italian untainted by the use of other languages. We are different from multi-language schools for tourists which use the ‘usual, conventional syllabus of Italian for foreigners’. Cultura Italiana (1980) is the only specialised language school in Bologna involved in Italian didactic research with the University of Bologna (1st university in Europe 1088) and with other 40 universities in Europe, America and Japan. Our students choose Cultura Italiana because you can find an authentic Italian environment, the true Italian of Italians, not the so-called “Italian for foreigners” present in areas of mass tourism. At Cultura Italiana you learn to communicate (speak, understand, read and write) in an Italian way, practicing Italian conversations with Italians.
