Piccola Università Italiana | Boutique Italian Language Schools in Fantastic Locations


We have been organizing private Online Italian language lessons since 2011 in a very successful way.  As a matter of fact, long before COVID-19, many students continued to study Italian after or even before their actual stay in Trieste or Tropea.

These lessons are designed for all our students who wish to learn Italian online but still want to engage in high-quality study.
The content of the lessons can be 100 % tailor-made to the necessities and expectations of each student.

Students may also choose the lessons to achieve specific goals, for business reasons or to learn about cultural subjects. Check out our selection of sector-specific Italian courses, from business courses to literature courses. Many students, for example, wish to learn or deepen the Italian language of a specific sector (medicine, economics, architecture, law etc.) for work reasons or simply to follow a course in art, history, literature etc. to discover Italian culture more closely. One of the strengths of our school is to offer a wide range of varied and diversified courses in terms of content. Usually, our students always find what they are looking for, but in case you don’t find the specific course you are interested in, please contact our team for more information. We will be happy to try to cut a course tailored for you!

Conduct & Procedure

For all online courses our first-class mother tongue teachers are waiting for you on the other side of a webcam. The lessons are live face to face lessons with the active participation of the students and interaction with the teachers.
In a fun, friendly, and engaging way, they will help you improve your knowledge of the Italian language and its culture.

Our online lessons are held via Zoom or Skype and these individual lessons can be completely tailor-made to the students’ needs. This way, you can attend your lessons wherever you are, without needing any special technical equipment.
All that is required is your PC, Mac, laptop, tablet, or iPad with webcam and microphone… and your own private classroom is ready!

Students also have the opportunity to review the lessons at any time and as many times as they like, because the online private lessons can be recorded.

What our students say about us

We asked some of our students why they decided to take our online lessons and this is their response:

• “I just finished a course at the Piccola Università Italiana in Tropea and I was looking for a follow up. It is so easy to forget what you learnt and this way I can keep my level of Italian.”

• “I already booked my first language course in the school in Trieste this summer and I simply wanted to get the basics before actually arriving in Italy! This way, I felt more comfortable.”

• “This year I cannot come to Italy for personal reasons, so I said to myself why not do something useful with my spare time and study Italian from New Zealand.”

• “I live and work in Italy but my schedule is so tight that I cannot even make it to the evening class at school. The online lessons allow me to fit in my Italian.”

• “I live in the US and I simply love Piccola and I love to study with my teacher every second week for one hour at least… this way she brings me a little bit of Italian to my home!”
