Intensive Italian Course “GB”

An intensive, immersive experience at ILM

This course follows the General course curriculum in the morning, which includes a focus on grammar alongside engaging conversation practice. But there is a valuable addition in the afternoon. By signing up for our Intensive Italian course you also receive 2 further hours of tuition. This takes the form of group conversation classes.

So what will your day of learning look like?

Students on the Intensive course start the day concentrating on the structure of the Italian language. That means learning and analysing grammar, under the guidance of your experienced and encouraging teacher. To consolidate your learning, you’ll also complete exercises, both in class and at home. This is your chance to try it on your own, and take stock of your progress and areas for improvement.

The next part of your morning will include activities to get you speaking and writing. Your teacher will animate the classroom with games, songs, films, discussions and more.

After a break for lunch, you’ll head back to school for conversation lessons. Exchanging ideas, opinions and stories with your mother-tongue Italian teacher and international classmates, you will be gaining new perspectives on life whilst your Italian flourishes. Conversation classes are welcoming and friendly, so students don’t feel shy or embarrassed about making errors – this is a crucial part of learning!


The Intensive Italian Course course is held in Pisa and Viareggio, and consists of 30 group lessons per week, 6 lessons a day (4 in the morning and 2 in the early afternoon)
