We organize courses in Italian Language and Culture to develop foreign students’ linguistic and intercultural skills with the aim of helping them to integrate into the Italian social and academic context. Italian intensive courses consist of 6 lessons per week, from Monday to Saturday, each one lasting three full hours, for around 2 weeks (each course is 50 academic hours). Courses are taught on-line entirely (with the teacher in streaming, and part of the lesson with online materials and exercises that students can download from Moodle system).
