Italian Language Centre in Florence, Italy
Machiavelli Italian language school is located in the historic centre of Florence, Italy,
in the district of Santo Spirito, home to artisans and artists, where, being just off the
beaten tourist track, the economic and social characteristics of the area have been left
intact. The school is in Piazza Santo Spirito itself, one of the finest squares of the
city. With its bars and out-door cafés, its daily market, workshops and restaurants, it
is a favourite haunt of Florentines and thus provides Italian language students with an
excellent opportunity to meet them.
Over the years the centre has maintained a size which enables
the staff to have daily contact with all the students, to spend time with them and to
cater to their needs for the duration of their stay. The atmosphere is informal and very
friendly. Group numbers are small and learning is therefore interactive and quick.
Teachers are able to take into consideration the needs of each individual student and
exchanges between the students are made easier and more meaningful. The Machiavelli
students come from all over the world, which promotes communication in Italian and which
compels teachers to be more creative. Furthermore, as communication is the basis for the
method of teaching, emphasis is placed on oral expression and the use of other languages
is kept to a minimum. Constant attention to the evolution of the needs of the students
leads the centre to continually adapt, renew and improve courses and services.
The centre offers
a wide range of courses other than language courses such as fine art and arts and crafts
courses in artist studios and artisan workshops, jewellery courses for both crafting and
design, music and singing courses for opera lovers and for singers, cooking courses for
professionals and amateurs alike, as well as a host of activities some cultural and some
just pure entertainment.
