1. Why study Italian in La Spezia? 

Because La Spezia and the surrounding area have much to offer visitors: easy access to the sea, beautiful landscapes, archaeological and historical sites and excellent local food; 

because La Spezia has grown remarkably in recent years both in the cultural field (new museums have been opened and the town has been twinned with Bayreuth) and as a tourist resort; 

because from La Spezia you can easily travel to art cities such as Genoa, Pisa Lucca, and Florence, and to smaller but very interesting places such as the Cinque Terre, the Carrara marble quarries and the Ligurian hill towns (such as Varese Ligure); 

because our Cultural Association, having earned a reputation for itself teaching foreign languages (it has actively promoted German-language studies in Italy for over 40 years), considers teaching Italian to foreigners its "second vocation"; 

because our Italian courses are held by qualified teachers who make a point of meeting the learning needs of their students. 


2. Our language courses 

A 15-hour/week intensive course:
3 hours of tuition a day from Mondays to Fridays; 

The course is available at beginners' level and intermediate level.
Minimum 5 students. 


Teaching method and organisation

The main goal of our school is to teach spoken Italian as used in daily life. Grammar is taught only by the inductive method, in the context of realistic communication settings. Groups include from a minimum of 5 to no more than 12 students. Each 'hour' of a lesson lasts 45 minutes.
Another aspect that is key to us is to enable you to experience life in Italy and in our area in particular. 



15-hour intensive course: 250.00 Euros
The price includes all the course material.
Discounts are applied to groups of at least 10 students enrolling together. 


Other courses

Individual tuition based on the standard course is available all year round at 25.00 Euro per lesson hour (45 minutes) for beginners and intermediate level students. On request, special courses (e.g. business Italian or for the tourist sector) can be provided. An ad hoc curriculum can be chosen to meet students' specific needs. Prices to be agreed upon. Our language courses are intended mainly for adults. 


Terms of payment

Students should pay 20% of the price of the course on enrolling. The balance is due no later than the evening of the day of arrival, when an ACIT representative will welcome the participants and collect the remaining 80% of the price.
