Accademia Riaci boasts teaching of practical, ready-to-use Italian, customized to your needs and goals. We teach from the very basic of Italian language to advanced courses such as interpretation.
Standard Italian Classes (for beginners)
Accademia Riaci provides students small-class (2~8 students more or less), customized lessons. The advantage of small-class learning is clear, compared with learning in a classroom of 20 students, where the opportunity to practice Italian is just once every 20 times. Not only the chance to talk in the class, but also the teachers are able to grasp each student's progress. The lessons follow a direct method, with equal emphasis on conversation, grammar, writing and listening.
