Italian for Foreigners

The English School offers Italian for foreigners courses in Olbia and in Algheror. The school is open all year and offers a wide range of courses. Our courses are focused on Italian culture and particularly on regional and local culture.

Both in Alghero and Olbia, people speak Italian, so this gives Italian language students a fantastic opportunity to become fully immersed in the Italian language. People in this area also speak Catalan in Alghero and Gallurese in Olbia a local dialect.  Students of Italian as a foreign language often choose to learn the Italian language because they are interested in Italian Culture. So The English School ’s programmes are a mixture of language ģand culture. Social activities give students the opportunity to learn Italian whilst having fun. Our teachers take part in all the social activities, and adopt teaching methods which use the Italian language as a means of communication.

Our courses are divided into 5 levels: beginner, elementary, pre-intermediate, intermediate and advanced. Courses are tailored around the student’s knowledge of Italian. All courses are held by qualified at university level mother tongue teachers with long experience in teaching Italian to foreign students.

The didactic method supplies the student with a rapid development of the four basic skills (conversation, understanding, reading and writing) in real life and business situations.

Students must complete a level entry test in order that they be placed at an appropriate level which is of course free and in no way binds to an enrolment to the school courses.

The English School ’s staff, who are always friendly and polite, are the main point of contact for the students, for whatever need they might have.

  • beginner
