Italian language school in Florence – Tuscany

Scuola Leonardo da Vinci was established in 1977 in Florence. The main objective of promoting the Italian language and culture was immediately outlined.

In over 40 years, the school has gained a great deal of experience in teaching Italian to foreign students from all over the world and with its wide range of training it meets the most varied needs of the public.

The method we have adopted is of a communicative type, in our classes all students speak Italian from the first day. We are convinced that, by developing communication, the four basic skills are simultaneously strengthened.
