If you are searching Italian language course in London to study, Happy Languages offers different solutions to meet your criteria.
Based in London since 2013, Happy Languages is a language school with wide experience in teaching Italian as a foreign language. On top of group courses and individual tuition, in 2014 the school became CILS centre: it prepares students and organises exams for those who want to take the certification of Italian as a foreign language, which is internationally valid. In the same year Happy Languages became also DITALS centre, so started hosting exams for people who want to get the international certification to teach Italian to foreigners. Both certification, CILS and DITALS, are released by the University for Foreigners of Siena, in Italy.
At Happy Languages you can choose among group or one-to-one Italian courses.
Either way, lessons are held by highly qualified teachers who specialised in teaching Italian as a foreign language and have a wide experience with adult students.
For those who want to join a group course to learn General Italian, there are all the levels available, from Beginner to Advanced. If you are not sure about which one is the right course for you, you can contact the school and ask advice: a professional tutor will assess your level and suggest you the best course.
Courses take place face-to-face or online: face-to-face courses are held in the City, in a very convenient location surrounded by a number of tube stations and bus stops. Around the area you can find a fantastic choice of bars and restaurants to meet your friends after the course or enjoy a beer with your classmates!
Group courses normally last for 10 weeks, one lesson of 90 minutes per week (made exception for the summer term, when you will have 8 weeks courses with 2 hour lessons).
During each class students do a variety of activities to develop all the abilities and become able to communicate in Italian in many situations: through games and roleplays students put into practice every topic they study, which is extremely useful and fun!
Not sure to be able to attend a group course? Happy Languages offers one-to-one lessons to be conveniently taken at the student’s home, office or online.
An experienced tutor will be happy to have a chat before you start about your motivation and goals: this will make planning the lessons easier and more effective.
Depending on your need you can have lesson on the same day and time every week or to schedule specific dates.
Apart from flexibility, learning individually is very beneficial as the teacher will carefully tailor each class on you, offering the best service ever.
If you have a week off and want to focus on your Italian or if you have a very specific
goal, Happy Languages also offers Intensive one-to-one lessons: blocks of 10, 15, 20 or 25 hours to be taken over the same week, a perfect way to immerse yourself in the language and improve it quickly!
