Italian language school in Reggio Emilia – Emilia Romagna

Founded in 2004, Reggio Lingua is a school specializing in teaching Italian. It is a CELI and CILS certification exam center as well as a member of ASILS and Eduitalia. The school’s goal is to introduce foreigners of all ages and nationalities to the Italian language and culture, as a key to accessing Italy and getting to know its artistic and cultural heritage. At the same time, students are encouraged to participate in the Italian way of life through authentic activities and experiences of daily life in which they can put into practice what they have learned in their classes.

Where we are

Reggio Emilia is known as the city of the “Tricolore” because the Italian national flag, a symbol of the unity of Italy, was born there. It is the capital of early childhood education, famous for its preschools and its pedagogical method “Reggio Approach” and it is home to the “Loris Malaguzzi International Center”. The absence of mass tourism, the cultural offers and the benefits of a small city make Reggio Emilia the ideal place to learn Italian and come into direct contact with the local population. The city is located in a strategic tourist position from which it is possible to reach the main attractions of northern and central Italy in a day. The school is located in an ancient building very near the historic center and it is equipped with bright and comfortable classrooms with air conditioning and Wi-Fi. Lessons are held in small groups to encourage the active participation of all students in a relaxed and familiar atmosphere.


  • Students per class: maximum 8
  • Accreditations: Eduitalia
  • Duration of the lessons: 55 minutes
