Since 2005, the Italian language courses have been hosted in the former Closter of Santa Maria Maggiore, in the old town.

Trieste is a charming town between mountain and sea, near the border with Slovenia. Trieste is visited every year by quality tourism and offers lots of attractions and cultural life. It is a great pleasure to sit on the terrace of a cafè, drinking a prosecco and talking Italian in front of the sea.

Standard group courses will reprise on 23 April 2018.
Standard course: classes are held everyday from Monday to Friday, 4 hours a day in the morning, with two different teachers.
Maximum number of students per class is 12.
The course lasts 4 weeks - 80 hours - and is designed for beginner, intermediate, upper intermediate and advanced students.

According to their level, participants can acquire a basic knowledge of Italian or increase and perfect the knowledge they already have. Beginners can only enrol starting from week 1 of each course. It is also possible to enrol only for 1, 2 or 3 weeks. All teaching material and cultural activities in Trieste are included. Students can enrol in Individual courses and in Superintensive courses 1 or 2 (combination between the Intensive course and 1 or 2 hours Individual course in the afternoon.

Methodology

methodology language coursesYour lessons will always be held in Italian because it is both the language and the culture we would like you to enjoy. We assure you that in doing so your progress will be quick and lasting. The teaching methodology is based on a fully communicative approach that promotes and encourages students’ active participation. It aims at developing oral and written communication skills. A wide variety of up-to-date authentic material is used in class, as valuable examples of real communication, thus introducing the students to Italian culture and society.

In order to increase and improve your Italian knowledge we use:

  • listening activities to improve your oral skills
  • oral and written productions
  • reading activities to improve your comprehension of written texts
  • activities in pairs or in groups
  • grammar workshops
  • vocabulary exercises
  • educational games to learn enjoying yourself
  • educational videos to improve your knowledge of Italy and its culture

During the course, the main communication skills - listening, speaking, reading and writing - are equally explored and gradually developed at all levels.
Every week the teachers adjust and enrich the programme of your group in order to satisfy your interests and requirements.

Our Staff


Our teachers of Italian languageThe quality of teaching and of the educational materials is very important for us. For this reason the members of our team have all attended special education seminars and teacher training programmes, especially the Itals Master Programme (Italian as second language) at Ca' Foscari University and have experienced teaching Italian as a foreign language.

Your teachers are always ready to help you, encourage you and comply with your learning method.
Teachers work as a team and arrange daily meetings in order to organize the different teaching departments; they regularly update their teaching material and discuss and compare different techniques.

Our Students says

Every month our courses are attended by people from all over the world. The class composition is varied, there are never students of just one nationality. This encourages the use of Italian language not only during the lessons but also in different contexts, in the daily Venetian life  and during the aternoon activities. The average age  of the students ranges from 20 to 50, but there are students of every age in the classrooms.

    Nella mia città ho imparato la lingua italiana in un gruppo fisso da cinque anni e ho cercato alternative per continuare. Istituto Venezia è un buon modo per migliorare la lingua. La meravigliosa città di Venezia accompagnato da una meravigliosa scuola. Cosa c'è di meglio?
    La scuola è situata in un edificio adatto a sentirsi bene nel mezzo della vita italiana e veneziana.
    Ho imparato più di quanto mi potessi aspettare per una settimana.
    Le lezioni sono state divertenti e mi è piaciuto lavorare in gruppo e poi in plenaria: così tutti ci siamo preparati a dire qualcosa sul tema affrontato.
    Lo staff è sempre cordiale e soprattutto il primo giorno il benvenuto è ben organizzato.
    Sono stato alla Residenza Redentore: è il mio primo soggiorno in un monastero e mi piace l'atmosfera tranquilla del Redentore.
    Ho anche pensato di andare a Trieste e forse la prossima volt

    Buongiorno da Tours !
    Adesso sono quasi tre settimane che sono tornata a casa dopo il mio soggiorno a Trieste ( fino al 3 ottobre ). Volevo dirLe che tutto è stato ottimo ! Sono stata fortunata con l'alloggio che Marina aveva scelto per me : bella camera e famiglia veramente molto simpatica. La città di Trieste e i dintorni mi sono piaciuti, anche perché le attività proposte dagli insegnanti il pomeriggio erano molto interessanti. È stato un piacere studiare con insegnanti dinamici che sanno rinnovare le lezioni e mostrano un grande impegno nel lavoro. La prego di ringraziare per me Marina, Sandro, Paola, Lucia, Elisa e Matteo (non posso farlo direttamente visto che non ho l'indirizzo mail della scuola di Trieste).
    Molti cordiali saluti,
    Chantal Parisot

    Therese Jones, australiana, 2015
    Just a quick note to say thank you to our two wonderful teachers, Claudia and Federica. Your patience and kindness were very much appreciated by your two Australian pupils.  We were unable to attend for the last week as Graham was ill and my knee injuries made it too difficult to climb up and down the stairs.
    Again many thanks to all
    Ciao ciao for now, until next time
    Therese and Graham Jones

    Vorrei dire che il mio corso individuale con Riccardo mi è piaciuto tantissimo e ho fatto molti progressi con l'italiano anche se naturalmente c'è ancora molto da imparare!
    L'anno prossimo ci vedremo di nuovo!
         
    Grazie molto a tutti e cari saluti a Riccardo! Arrivederci,

    Hi Gabriela, now that I finally made it home just wanted to take a moment to thank you for being so accommodating on all my last minute requests. My home stay was great Miriam and her family were wonderful hosts!

    I look forward to being able to travel to Venice again to take additional weeks of lessons. I very much enjoyed the classes and the cultural activities. All the he teachers were wonderful and even though I ended up repeating the first week in the evening classes their teaching styles were unique and I felt I learned new things and reinforced the items form the week before in a positive manner. So for me it worked out great.

    Again thank you it was overall a wonderful learning experience. The school was recommended by another airline employee and I am glad I was able to find out about it from her and take part.

    Grazie mille, Sharon Moscoso

    Sakiko, giapponese, 2015

    Buongiorno,
    sono Sakiko Oshima che ha studiato ad Istituto Venezia per circa tre mesi da luglio. Come state? Sono tornata in Giappone dopo che avevo preso il viaggio molto lungo.
    Grazie a voi, ho potuto studiare l'italiano con gioia. Tutti le lezioni erano molto divertenti e tutti gli insegnanti erano molto simpatici. Anche la segreteria era molto gentile. Mi è piaciuto tanto stare alla scuola.
    Ho deciso di continuare a studiare l'italiano. Vorrei parlare l'italiano più naturale e fluente.
    Ringrazio tanto per la vostra gentilezza. Spero di ritornare a Venezia subito!
    Sakiko
