Lesson 1. 90-minute lesson in the classroom.
Studying new grammar and vocabulary. Lay the foundation of your practice!
The Cultural Centre of Fabrizio de André was opened in 2011 in the city of Sanremo, Italy. Nowadays it is a school of the Italian language chain with a unique communicative methodology of teaching Italian language as a foreign language. Our language programs are used by students all over the world!
We we're the first in Italy to develop the program which allows you not to swot from the book, but to take part in master classes and meetings with the Italians, through memorizing 90% of the material and diving into the culture by 100%. Our school in Sanremo has already helped more than 2000 students to speak the language of Dante Alighieri, Petrarch, Boccaccio, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Giuseppe Garibaldi, Gianni Rodari, Luciano Pavarotti and Adriano Celentano, Roberto Cavalli and Gianni Versace, Marcello Mastroianni and Sophia Loren, Federico Fellini and Paolo Sorrentino…!
Our programmes are based on the principles of Edgar Dale. Studies of this scholar prove that by ‘digesting’ information you learn it by 90%. Hence, the best way to learn Italian is to go to Italy! Our experts offer a way of studying, where you dive into the real Italian lifestyle. Let us compare the process of studying with a theatre, where the country is the stage, and students are actors. During lessons you ‘learn your part’ (Italian grammar, vocabulary), and during ‘attività' you play this role (communicate with friendly and responsive people from the city of Imperia on the coast of the Ligurian Sea).
