Although the Accademia Italiana is a relatively young school, having been founded in 1997, it has already been shortlisted four times for Study Travel Magazine’s award for the best Italian language school. Located on the beautiful Amalfi Coast, it is a fantastic choice for those who would like to mix Italian lessons with an amazing holiday.
At Accademia Italiana classes focus on developing your practical communication skills and use imaginative teaching methods to encourage your learning. In addition to the standard group and private Italian lessons, the school offers special programs for young students and families, as well as for those aged 50 and over. This enables students to study in groups with people of their own age who share similar interests. Classes are also divided by nationality to ensure there is a good mix of students from different countries in each class and that students are not able to converse in their native language.
The school is housed in a historic building on a busy street with various bars and nightclubs nearby, and is close to both the coast and the city centre. To get to know the city and learn more about the local culture, Accademia Italiana organizes a range of activities for after your classes. These include city tours, film nights, limoncello and olive oil tastings, and cultural seminars, as well as excursions to Capri, Pompeii, Amalfi, Naples, Paestum and much more.
