Cultura Italiana Arezzo
Courses

All courses begin on Monday morning and finish on the Friday of the last week of the selected period of study.

  Intensive courses

The intensive courses are designed for groups of 5-10 students of a similar level and include lessons every morning (4 hours a day) and activities during the afternoon.


  Private Lessons

Some students prefer to take individual lessons in order to progress faster. They choose the number of instruction hours and join in the afternoon activities with the other students.



  Semi-private lessons

Semi-private lessons can be organized for two people (couples, friends travelling together, etc.).The students choose the number of instruction hours and also join in the afternoon activities with the rest of the group.


  Afternoon and evening courses

(twice or four times a week)
The afternoon and evening courses are designed for people who cannot attend lessons during the day and are therefore given after 2:00 pm. They consist of one and a half hour lessons, either twice or four times a week.




  Language and Music/ Classical Singing

For language and music/classical singing, the language courses fall into one of the categories above but the program includes music or singing classes in the afternoon. The school organizes general and specific courses for learning and improving basic techniques of classical singing according to traditional Italian models; the courses are conducted by professional opera singers. Music lessons can also be organized for several instruments, in cooperation with the music school of Arezzo. For additional details and prices, contact info@culturaitalianaarezzo.it.



  Lessons on Skype

Lessons on Skype (with video) are a great way to pursue the learning process and to stay connected with Italy once at home. Students are assigned to a teacher on an individual basis and they set up a schedule together, either weekly, biweekly or monthly. The school offers special prices to past students for remote lessons.







  Preparation of the CILS exams

The school offers special courses to help students prepare for the CILS* exams organized by the University of Siena and held everywhere in the world. The CILS certification is necessary to study in Italian universities, for example, and can be required to work in an Italian company.

* Certificazione di Italiano come Lingua Straniera dell'Università per Stranieri di Siena ( http://cils.unistrasi.it/ ).

I should explain that my main motive for going to language school is to structure my vacation in a pleasant way, make friends, be in a pleasant location in Italy. I also hope to improve my Italian of course, and slowly I am doing so, but I don't have an urgency about it.
I would rate everything at the school itself as being Excellent.
I am VERY HAPPY with Monica, my teacher. She did a good job of running the class, was very pleasant, and VERY patient. I have been to some schools like this before, and in those schools there seemed to be an unspoken understanding that the students didn't have to work too hard, and the teachers didn't have to work too hard either. Not so here! Monica really seems to care, and it certainly caused me to try harder also. I spent a lot of time on homework, and was happy to do so. I wish had been able to learn more quickly; at my age, 75, I find that it is difficult to learn a language.
As a single traveler an important thing for me is to find other students at a school who are interested in meeting outside of class to do other things like dining, exploring. I am very satisfied with the school in this respect. I have met several wonderful people over the last two weeks and have had many good times.
I also participated in some of the programs that the school organized, and overall they were very good. I especially enjoyed cooking with Lalla and the trips to Lucignano and Poppi. I also independently went to San Supulcro with my new Australian friends and enjoyed it very much.
I liked the city of Arezzo. It is big enough to be interesting but not completely flooded by tourists. There are many excellent and reasonably priced dining choices and there always seemed to be plenty to see and do.
Overall I have had an excellent experience at the school and would recommended it to anyone. I think it is the best of the 4 or 5 schools that I have gone to. In fact, if I come to Italy again next year I will choose to come here again
