Welcome to the Centro Italiano di Cultura Fabrizio de André Sanremo, the only accredited school in Sanremo able to certify the Italian language!
Our school of the Italian language in Sanremo was opened in 2011 due to the love to one of the world's most beautiful languages: the Italian language! The Italian language is still the language of music, opera, fashion, design, good food, olive oil and quality wine.
Learn the Italian language in Sanremo in Centro Italiano di Cultura Fabrizio De André Sanremo will be a wonderful experience no matter what is your real purpose: work or you simply love Italian language and culture. Sanremo is not a huge city and its habitants are not used to mass tourism. In Sanremo, you will still find "real Italy" made of traditions and happy smiling people.
During the years we asked our students: What are you expecting from an Italian language school in Italy? The majorities of the answers we've got were: competence, professionalism and love! Wonderful, this is exactly what we are and do!
Already we have thousands of students in the world and this is also for them a wonderful occasion: courses on the sea in the beautiful Sanremo!
Why organize courses in the Italian language in Sanremo?
Because Sanremo is a wonderful sea city far from mass tourism and surrounded not just by a wonderful clean sea (every year Liguria, our region, has the record of Blue European flags, a eulogy gave year by year by the European Union after chemical control of the water) but with a middle-age history, art and specific food traditions.
Our courses in the Italian language in Sanremo are usually held in the morning to give all our guests the possibility to enjoy a relaxing free afternoon on the beach or around Italy.
Many other schools teach almost all languages in the world. This is for us a big mistake, it's better to focus on 1 language but doing it at the best level. For this reason, we are the only branch of the University of Siena in the province and the only center in Sanremo who can certify your skills!
In our center, we don't teach any other language than the Italian language!
The Centro Italiano di Cultura Fabrizio De André is working not just in Sanremo but also in Torino, Kyiv, Moscow and Lublin. All our teachers are trained by our director Fabio Boero and all of them completed the master DITALS that prove the highest skills in teaching the Italian language to foreigners. You can give a look to all feedbacks we've got clicking here!
The lasts few years we adapted the communicative methods, that already gave so many good results (in the FDA Center in Kyiv, Moscow work even teachers that studied the language from 0 with us) to the courses organized in Italy. Fabio Boero www.fabioboero.com, our director, had this thought: "Why we should follow in Italy the same course we would abroad ? " this is what the majority of the schools do. You sit in your class, you read your book, listen to audio and so on. Isn't it different by what you do home? it is not. For this reason, we created a special course called "grammatica e pratica" where every day you get 2 hours grammar lesson and 2 (and more) hours practise through professional activities prepared in the classroom with your teacher. This was designed by followng Edgar Dale's studies and give you the possibility to remember up to 90 %!
You already studied the Italian language? With us you will speak it!
We know, majority of other schools always say " we won many awards " without telling anything else. Our center won in 2011 the "special prize Edilingua" in a world challenge where participated thousand of teachers and students. This info can be checked in Edilingua's official site!
Are you already in Sanremo? You can have a trial lesson and see it with your own eyes!
From 2014 our small school in Sanremo became an official branch of the University of Siena after a very severe control of methods, teachers and qualifications. We are now the only center in the whole province able to certificate the Italian language through the CILS International Certificate.
The best way to learn a language is having a course where the language is actually spoken and live it daily! If you want to improve your level, try to have a course in the Italian language with us in Sanremo! This for sure will help!
Italy is one of the richest countries in the world in terms of art, history, architecture. If you can dream it you can live it!
