VISION

Carlo Amedeo PasottoI started  to organise my first courses in Italian language and culture way back in 1985 with the original and exclusive formula “small courses in a small city”. The idea, courageous and innovative, proved to be a winner.

I chose a small town rich in history, arts and culture like Urbania as the location for my school of Italian language for international students, a place on a “human scale”, an ideal place for Italian language courses in Italy, where students can participate in the local life of a pleasant community. 

In 2011 the Milan branch of Centro Studi Italiani was founded in order to offer our students the opportunity to experience contemporary urban lifestyle in a dynamic and vibrant city.

METHOD

Our fundamental criterion when teaching is to put the student – each individual student, with his own particular personality and potentials –  at the center of our attention.

Our teaching methods are carefully selected (communicative, logical-functional, rational study of the language, etc.) adapting them, case by case, to our needs and teaching objectives. Our teaching strategy is therefore flexible, adaptable and creative.

Classes are formed after an initial placement test to assess the student’s knowledge of the Italian language.

All courses – at all levels – have the same aim: to make the student able to understand, speak, read and write the living language fluently.

In order to reach this aim, we guarantee each student individual attention throughout the course.

Classes include language, conversation and culture and vary according to each level.
