About Language Immersion Courses in Italy

If you wish to learn the Italian language there are only a few options available to you.  You could, of course, purchase an expensive home-study course and listen endlessly to droning audio tapes, or you may even get lucky and find an Italian language course where you live.  However, even if you were to combine the best aspects of these programs and methods, they would not be nearly as effective—nor as enjoyable—as attending one of the many Italian language schools located throughout the beautiful country of Italy.  These genuine Italian language schools offer a full immersion experience like no other, in which students can quickly and comprehensively learn the language as it’s actually spoken.  From lectures to small group instruction to one-on-one guided practice with a native Italian instructor, everything about this experience is purely Italian.  This is not your typical 2-hour a day program, but a 24/7 adventure in which you’ll be constantly surrounded and fully immersed in the Italian language and culture.

Why Study Italian in Italy?

Italian, appropriately called one of the “romance” languages for its fine flowing sound, is the lone official language of Italy, spoken throughout this populous and gorgeously landscaped country.  Besides its natural beauty, Italy is a major player in world economics, meaning those that learn to speak its language may have a decided advantage in terms of employability and business success.  Italy is also a popular tourist destination, with thousands of sights to see that consistently attract visitors from around the world.  Learning to speak the Italian language as it is actually spoken in Italy can significantly enhance your travel experience, allowing you to better connect with the country’s customs tradition and people.

Italian language courses can be located throughout Italy, including in beautiful locales such as:


The capital city of the Italian region Lombardy, Milan is the second largest city in Italy and the 7th ranked tourist destination in all of Europe.  Those participating in language schools here can lose themselves in the pristine museums and spectacular landscapes, and because Milan is considered the international hub for the performing arts, there is always a dramatic performance or opera to take in during your stay.


Florence is the capital and most heavily populated city in Italy’s Tuscany region.  Situated in the basin of the Senese Clavey Hills, including the much photographed Careggi and Settigriano Hills, Florence offers breathtaking views of the region’s magnificent landscapes and natural flora.  Language school participants who are fans of architecture will be literally awe struck when studying in Florence—known as the “cradle of the Renaissance” for its one-of-a-kind churches, buildings and monuments.


Last but not least, the Italian city of Rome requires no formal introduction whatsoever.  Italy’s capital city and most densely populated, Rome dates back over 2 ½ thousand years to the days of the Holy Roman Empire.  Famed for its ancient architecture, monuments and unusually large amount of public space and nature reserves, Rome offers language school participants everything they could possibly want from an Italian adventure.
