Piccola Università Italiana | Boutique Italian Language Schools in Fantastic Locations


To enable you as many chances as possible to practise speaking we limit group numbers of our group courses to a maximum of 8 participants at each level. On the first day of the Italian language course, all students participate in a written and oral placement test. This test is the basis for placement in one of our 15 levels of competence.

In case it is not possible for a student to be allocated to a group at the right level (with 3-8 participants), then this student will be placed in a 2 to 1 course or will receive private tuition with the number of lessons reduced by half. The language students are in this way guaranteed highest learning efficiency.

The course is designed to satisfy your individual language needs, this is achieved by placing you at the level of competence exactly right for you.

    Très belle expérience à la Piccola Università Italiana ! Les cours sont en petits groupes et les enseignants sont souriantes patients ! Je n’ai qu’une envie : revenir et y rester plus longtemps ! Merci.

    The two weeks I stayed in Tropea at Piccola Università were great. Everything was perfectly organized and the staff was really helpful. The trips were great and I enjoyed the apartment I stayed in. The small groups at school made it possible to take in a lot of information and most of the teachers tried really hard to make your stay a memorable one.

    Mir hat die Piccola Università Italiana sehr in Tropea gefallen und deswegen haben wir die Schule in Triest gewählt. Es war eine gute Entscheidung. Ich habe mich wirklich verbessert. Im Kurs individuale 2 Std. am Nachmittag konnte ich zusätzlich meinen Wortschatz den ich für meine Arbeit benötige sehr verbessern. Das war sehr gut auf mich zugeschnitten. Tante grazie a tutte.

    La Piccola Università Italiana di Trieste è eccellente per tutti gli insegnanti!
    Tutti erano altamente qualificati per comunicare la lingua italiana. Inoltre erano motivati e molto gentili con i principianti con vari metodi di apprendimento. Le lezioni sono tenute piccole in modo che tutti gli studenti possano partecipare. :-)
