Piccola Università Italiana | Boutique Italian Language Schools in Fantastic Locations


This particular course aims to offer Italian language teachers a special training program, both theoretical and practical, based not only on the development and improvement of language skills but also on the need to provide them with the most modern techniques of language teaching. In brief, the main focus is improving an already solid knowledge gained in life or at work, fostering a greater familiarity with the language approach. This training is recognized by the EU and entitles participating Italian language teachers (non-mother-tongue-speakers) for funding.

Our Italian language schools are PIC-registered by the EU. Therefore, all Italian language course programs are eligible for funding under the ERASMUS+ program.

Besides, the European Commission has been sending interpreters and translators to our Italian language schools for specific language training since 1999.
