Do you want to learn or improve your Italian?

Choose our Intensive Course in Lugano!

The Intensive Language Course of the ILI School puts you at the centre of the lesson. We enhance and utilise your experiences, your needs, the styles and motivations that you bring to the class.

Our didactic approach is immersive, given that having you understand and learn the language means conveying the flexible network of knowledge, categories, values and practices that comprise the Italian culture, giving you the chance to truly immerse yourself in the reality of the territory.

Educational Programme

The teaching methodologies used in the courses are specific to the communicative/situational approaches and allow for the improvement of all language skills through techniques for the development of linguistic processes.

The intensive course programme includes situational, cultural and recreational lessons that take place in real contexts (for example, during a visit to an exhibition, taking part in a treasure hunt, and so on).

Learning the language is promoted by developing the student’s autonomy, with the programme including situational activities that aim to apply the language skills in ‘real life’ contexts, transmitted through interacts with people, stores, offices and other institutions outside the school.
