So What to do in Venice?
You can start with our Italian Language & Art history Courses
Italian language courses
are held by qualified teachers, with a long experience of teaching both in Italy and abroad. Teachers use the communicative method, where students become the real protagonists of the lesson: they interact with one another and immediately put into practice what they just learnt. Particular attention is given to increasing the fundamental linguistic abilities, such as: Understanding, oral Production, written Production.
The Art History Courses
can be considered as a complement or a completion for the Italian Language Courses, because it doesn’t involve only teacher up-front lessons, since the student are also involved in seminar activities. The lessons take place both in class and outdoor: our method doesn’t involve Tour guide visits but, concerning the theme of the course, it requires the observation and the analysis of urbanism, of architecture and of art works in the historical context within which they were created.
