There is a natural association between language & culture.
I believe that sounds, sayings and local expressions tell us much more than we imagine! Personally, I think that monuments speak their own language and it is so interesting to understand what they say!
In our classes of Italian for travelers, teachers mediate between language and culture. They teach the Italian of art and history, of streets and monuments, of people and their traditions.
As I like people to become witnesses and ambassadors of Italian as a “second” culture, I have designed courses and tours to communicate even at a basic level (CEFR A1/A2). My program includes 10 hours of linguistic preparation and 10 hours of language in context (theory and practice) and visiting tours.
Choose a tour from Italy in mind page and I will be happy to organize your course of Italian for your trip.
