Summer Course of Italian language and culture: An Ideal Summer

The course is intended for foreign students who want to learn and/or improve their knowledge of the Italian language and culture in the relaxed and stimulating environment offered by the city of Urbino, just a few kilometers from the Adriatic shore.

The duration of one course is four weeks . However students can decide to attend only one module, two weeks. During the course, students will acquire the necessary linguistic, social, practical and cultural skills to carry out everyday tasks and develop un understanding of the most interesting aspects of the Italian culture.

Lessons are from Monday to Friday, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and twice a week from 3 to 5 p.m. for a total of 24 hours per week.
