Piccola Università Italiana | Boutique Italian Language Schools in Fantastic Locations


The conversational language courses at our Italian language school are classical Italian language courses.

These classical Italian courses can be started every Monday. As in the other Italian language courses, each student takes a written and an oral test on the first morning of the course so his/her level of competence in the Italian language can be defined precisely. This procedure guarantees the participants of our Italian courses a high efficiency of learning by being placed in one of our 15 language levels according to language competence.

This course is ideal for short term students, who want to improve exclusively their conversational skills and also those who want to focus on the recreational aspect of their stay.

  • Hermine from Austria

    Le insegnanti sono molto competente e gentile. Adesso non ho paura di parlare italiano con gli Italiani. Inoltre le insegnanti e la donna alla rezepzione hanno molta pazienza.

  • Claudia from Germany

    Die „UNIVERSITA DI PICCOLA“ in TROPEA ist eine nette kleine Sprachschule wo man ideal italienisch Lernen mit Urlaub am Strand verbinden kann. Allerdings empfehle ich den Intensivkurs nur für Personen, die Italienisch für den Job brauchen, da er sehr viel Zeit in Anspruch nimmt.

  • François from France

    Ciao a tutte et tutti (ciao Dario!)
    Buon Giorno di MARSEILLE Francia.
    Tornando da voi, bella città sole et mare ci rendiamo conto che eravamo al paradiso.
