The general intensive Italian course is the core of an Italian study stay in Sicily with Scuola Virgilio. A full class (from 4 up to 9 students) has 15 hours per week (1 hour = 60 minutes), with 3-hour classes every morning from Monday to Friday, from 9.30 am to 1.00 pm including a 30-minute coffee break.
All teachers are native Italian speakers, graduated in foreign languages and with specific training in teaching Italian as a non-native language. In each lesson, different aspects of the Italian language and culture are studied in a friendly and informal atmosphere. The first part of the lesson focuses on grammar aspects with written and oral exercises, while the second part is dedicated to conversation, role play games, songs and other activities. The courses are divided into different levels. All the study material is provided by the school free of charge.
