The goal

The goal of this course is to reach a language competence to be able to easily understand quite complex texts and express yourself fluently and effectively, easily debating about different topics.

This journey we’ll make together will considerably enhance your lexical competence with idiomatic expressions and register variations, focusing on both past and present Italy to deepen the Italian culture. Cinema, art, literature, history and stories of Milan: we will go together all over the city and discover places which tell stories; we will partecipate in the events which take place in the city and we’ll take the opportunity to reflect and express our point of view and our preferences at any time, inside and outside the classroom.

How will the course take place?

Our journey will be an experiential course with lessons outside and lessons in classroom in co-working spaces. Lessons outside will be occasions for experimentation, deepening, socialization and fun: thousands of activities, many people to meet, mistakes and laughs to remember!

And once is it over?

At the end of the course, you will receive a certification of participation and, if you want, you can take the exam for the C1 CILS Certification, according to the dates made available by the Università per Stranieri di Siena.

And last ut not least, there is a great opportunity for you who have attended the course: the school does not leave you when the course is over, but it offers you an online space dedicated to your questions, doubts or language needs, for free!
