Our school offers both a wide range of group courses (4-8 students per group) and private classes which vary from the very beginner level A1 till the more advanced and proficient ones (C1-C2), in accordance with the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: level A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2).Our students manage to linguistically progress from one level to another in less than one year, by following a precise progressive language learning path, which has been meticulously planned so that to facilitate their learning both from a didactic and psycho-linguistic viewpoint.

For this reason, each linguistic level is divided into 3 modules (e.g. A1: module 1, module 2, module 3): each module is taught throughout 12 lessons, for a total of 24 hours, which allows our students to effectively progress in their target language learning process. Furthermore, all our classes follow the communicative language teaching approach, as our teachers strongly emphasise interaction in the Italian language as both the means and the ultimate aim of their students’ study and learning.

Students must maintain a minimum of 75% attendance (e.g. 9 lessons out of 12) to be eligible for a Certificate of Attendance awarded by the Language Education Center Pte. Ltd.. Certificate on request.

By reaching a minimum of A1 level, the student is able to test their Italian language knowledge through the language exam CELI directly at our Italian Education Center accredited venue.

The CELI certification is a qualification issued by the University for Foreigners of Perugia, which declares the level (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2) of linguistic and communicative competences in Italian as a foreign language.

The CILS certification is a qualification issued by the University for Foreigners of Siena, which declares the level (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2) of linguistic and communicative competences in Italian as a foreign language.
