Whether you are a complete beginner, a bit rusty or already fluent and want to enjoy Italian conversation, we offer a range of Italian language courses during the daytime, evening and weekend to meet your needs.
At CIS you can buy or borrow language books for every need. We ourselves published some of the most widely used Italian courses, such as Avanti and Ci Siamo, which have been used all around the world.
The best aspect was learning with such a great group of people and a wonderful teacher. A most enjoyable evening every time.
The teachers are engaging and speak only Italian in classroom. Lot's of different topics are covered.
It was always fun and that makes the course easier to learn. Also our teacher is extremely patient and encouraging which makes the speaking part of the lesson less intimidating.
