Learning Italian


Learning Italian

Every year, in countries throughout the world, half a million people attend Italian language courses outside Italy.


Italian is a language of culture. Knowing Italian means having access to: a literary heritage that is of prime importance in European history; to humanistic and scientific texts of enormous value; and to Italian theatrical, musical, opera, film and television production.

Italian is a language of study. Every year thousands of people study Italian in schools, universities, institutes and libraries in Italy and throughout the world.

Italian is a language of work. Managers, investors, specialised technicians, workers, and labourers come into contact with the Italian industrial, artisan and services sector that has now crossed borders and become international.

And by speaking Italian a visit to our country – with its great cities of art, its natural heritage and its hospitable and welcoming people – becomes a special and authentic experience.
