Italian Language Intensive Group Course with private classes in the afternoon if you want to consolidate what you have learned in your group classes or if you have specific needs.

At the end of your course, you can take a final exam to certify your language level. Centro Studi Italiani will then issue a certificate that you can use in the working world or for university credits.
