Do you think you've made progress?
« Oui! Je ne cherchais pas une école axée sur la grammaire ,qui travaille avec des listes de vocabulaire. Je cherchais à apprendre à parler italien. L'école était donc exactement ce qu'il me fallait! Je ne pense pas néanmoins que cette méthode d'enseignement convient aux novices. »

Irina Garreta
DILIT International House, Roma
Duration: 4 weeks

I decided to spend this February in Rome and there was no better way to make the most of my time there than enrolling in an Italian course.

I chose ESL because I had already travelled to Melbourne with them and was really happy with how they’d treated me. My stay in Rome was magnificent!

As days went by, I changed groups so I was always in a class with a similar level to mine. Out of the 3 teachers I had, my favourite was Susanna Andrei because, apart from being an excellent teacher, she loves her job and passes on her passion for the Italian language with her kindness.

Rome is the perfect place to learn Italian. Being bilingual (Spanish/Catalan) made learning the language a lot easier and I wasn’t afraid to use it.

Rome is a magical city, full of colour and delicious food. Walking through its paved streets and discovering its hidden parts is a bliss that you one needs to experience in order to understand.

In Rome, I made good friends, had great experiences and learnt how to have a pretty fluent conversation in Italian. In short, it was an excellent experience.

Host family
You will stay in a single or double room in the home of a family carefully selected by our partner school (self-catering). You can choose from “standard” and “standard plus” accommodation, selected according to quality, general condition of the apartment, proximity to the school, position in the city and the furniture and fittings of the apartment itself. Families offer an excellent environment for practising Italian and developing a deeper understanding of Rome’s enchanting culture.

Shared apartments
This is an ideal option if you’re looking for more independence. You will stay in a single or double room and share the kitchen and bathroom with the other students. You can choose between “standard” and “standard plus” accommodation, according to your individual requirements.

A room in a bed and breakfast or hotel are also available, depending on your needs and budget.

The school offers a range of cultural activities to enhance your language skills. From Italian cooking to Roman archaeology, there are many seminars and workshops available, ideal for stimulating discussion in Italian. Daily events organised by the school to help you meet other students and make the most out of your time in Rome include city tours, movie nights and live music. And of course, you can spend the evenings exploring Rome and its nightlife at your own pace: it’s all right there on your doorstep!
