Founded in 2005, Sicilian Italian Language School is the only school in Palermo which specializes in teaching the Italian language specifically to foreigners. Sicilian Italian Language School is also one of the few schools in Sicily that provides a Cultural Holiday experience in Palermo, in which our students enjoy a number of touristic, linguistic and social activities while learning the Italian language. Your language holiday won’t just be about the sea, nature, art and good food, but will also be a new way of learning and living the Italian and Sicilian culture.
Sicilian Italian Language School is accredited by the University of Siena, and is home to DITALS exams; certification for the teaching of Italian language for foreigners. They offer Italian courses for foreigners of all linguistic levels, from very beginners to advanced learners. Their Italian courses are suitable for all foreigners who want to deepen their proficiency of Italian in a different and unique way by staying on a Mediterranean island. Sicilian Italian Language School offers an unforgettable experience to improve your knowledge of Italian, expand vocabulary and understand the grammatical forms and structures which are presented and analyzed in the order of their complexity and frequency of use. Attention is focused mainly on the spoken language in order to put you in a position to deal with a wide variety of communicative situations daily. The Communicative method is used to improve in the Four Language Skills: Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing.
The first day of the course begins with an entrance test which will determine your language level and the division of the various students into small groups of 2 to 10 participants. All courses are held from Monday to Friday, generally in the morning, for individual courses there may be additional classes in the afternoon.
Fondazione Italia students and friends are eligible to receive a 50% discount of a one-week intensive or semi-intensive Language Holiday Package that includes accommodation, language course, materials, and tour of Palermo.
