Why FDA Center?

 You re not the first who's got Italian in his mind and try to study this beautiful language. Some of you guys try by temselves, they just have some shopping time in some bookstore and get back home with cd, dvd and books that promise fast results. Some of you guys maybe already attended some schools or courses. Your effort was maybe very high and your result not this much as expected.

The Centro italiano di cultura Fabrizio De André Sanremo is just proposing a new method of studyng, based on the theory of Edgar Dale. The cause that make our general director, Fabio Boero, create this new way of learning is that the Centro italiano Fabrizio De André is not based just in Sanremo but also in Torino, Kiev, Odessa, Moscow. Travelling and directing all those school we realized that most of other schools just proposed a 4/5 hours intensive course that has to be done daily. In this way you will get exact the same course you can find in your home city. Does it make sense ? We think it doesn't. We are in Italy and we decided we can use the time for better than sitting in front of a book or listening some audio material through some cd. In FDA Center you will get 2 hours grammar course and other 2 (and plus) hours activity every day.

We're located in Sanremo, in the very center of the City and 5 minutes walking to the sea and 15 minutes walking from train station.  

How does it work?

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).  

Several times more efficient than regular courses
