Intensive Course PRO Language

The new Intensive Course PRO Language  it is ideal for those who want to express themselves at their best at work or want to find the right way to communicate in Italian.

It is recommended for professional use of the language, for successful communication in social life and for exam preparation.

In addition to the SMART Intensive Course of the morning, we also have the afternoon options. You learn and apply immediately. These are practical lessons to help you to master the Italian language in the most efficient way. They are private or semi-private lessons that focus on your specific needs, developing high level competences and skills in the Italian language.  Thanks to this particular program you will have the chance to choose which aspects you want to improve in an efficient and personalized way.

Depending on your initial level, the course offers the possibility to reach all levels of linguistic competence within the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: A1-A2-B1-B2-C1-C2.

Frequency

  • Morning: SMART Intensive Course  (9.00-12.00)
  • Afternoon Intensive Course PRO:
    1. Grammar
    2. Conversation
    3. Exams

The course is divided into 4-week modules, however it is possible to customise the frequency over more weeks or on a yearly basis for those who need a long-term programme (for example, for a study visa).

Timetables

Morning classes will follow the time schedule of the SMART course, while the pro courses are in the afternoon

(on request, it is possible to personalize the time schedule based on the student’s preference)

(from 1 to 3 students: 4 lessons per week. More than 3 students: 6 lessons per week)

Classes

The ILI School pays particular attention to the quality of teaching and the specificity of each individual student, hence our classes have a limited number of participants.

The course provides lessons that are tailored to the actual level of the group, with differentiated teaching and attention to individual needs, having the aim of enhancing the competency of each and every student.

Admittance Test

To enrol in the ILI Courses, the student will have to complete an entrance test that allows the ILI School to evaluate the initial level of the individual in relation to the prerequisites required to attend the course. The entrance test is compulsory for all persons enrolled.

Read more

The entrance test is divided into two parts:

a) First written component

The written test allows for a verification of:

  • the level of written comprehension (which may not correspond to the level of knowledge of grammatical structures, or to the competency in writing);
  • the level of knowledge of grammatical structures;
  • the skill level in written production.

b) Second oral component

The interview, which takes place after the written test, aims at a global evaluation of the candidate.

Determined throughout the interview is:

  • the data resulting from the written test;
  • an evaluation of oral comprehension and production;
  • a verification of the applicant’s current understanding of language skills;
  • a determination of the candidate’s objectives.

At this point, we will recommend the training course that is best suited to the candidate’s knowledge and needs by directing them towards a module that takes into account:
1) of the linguistic level A, B, C;
2) of the level of competence in the different language skills;
3) of the needs expressed.

    I liked that we also got to interact with oher classes because it allowed us to communicate more in italian as we would in the outside world. The teachers are also patient and attend to cure individual needs as students.

    I arrived here 4 months ago in the beautiful city of Lugano with very little Italian and a huge mission to learn as quickly as possible for work. With the commitment and enthusiasm of the wonderful teachers at the school, it has been possible to start work as a doctor, albeit very challenging, and the guys continue to laugh at my regular mistakes but inspire me to learn and communicate in a calm and encouraging environment! What a wonderful experience with very important friendships made.

    Mein Name ist Mirjam. Ich komme von Winterthur, aus der Schweiz. Ich verbrachte zwei Wochen Ferien in Lugano, in der Ferienwohnung meiner Eltern. Mit der ILI Sprachschule (Intensivkurs am Morgen) habe ich eine gute Erfahrung gemacht. Ich denke, ich konnte mein Italienisch verbessern. Auch waren die beiden Lehrerinnen, die ich hatte sowie die Leute im Sekretariat sehr nett. Il mio nome è Mirjam. Vengo da Winterthur, in Svizzera. Sono stata a Lugano per due settimane di vacanza, nella casa di vacanza dei miei genitori. Con la scuola di lingua ILI (corsi intensivi della mattina), ho fatto una buona esperienza. Penso di aver potuto migliorare il mio italiano. Inoltre le due insegnanti che ho avuto e il personale della segreteria erano molto gentili.
