Why learn Italian?

Italian, unlike English, is usually not studied out of necessity.  However, many students want to learn our language for professional reasons.  Italy appeals to some people in certain areas such as design, fashion and food.  Others in art, history and music.  For these things, Italy knows few rivals.



But most of the students attending our Italian courses in Florence are doing it out of pure joy and pleasure of the Italian language and culture.  Our beautiful county is rich in history, art and culture and natural beauty.  It’s easy to see and fall in love with the whole southern side of the Alps, the rolling hills of Tuscany and Umbria, 3000 km of coastline, lakes, volcanoes and islands both large and small scattered across the Mediterranean.
