Standard, Intensive, & Private Italian Classes
Accademia Riaci is committed to providing personalized and intimate learning experiences through small class sizes, typically ranging from 2 to 8 students. This deliberate approach offers a distinct advantage over traditional classrooms characterized by larger enrollments, where opportunities for practicing Italian are often limited.
In our small classes, students enjoy a heightened level of engagement, benefiting not only from increased speaking opportunities but also from the personalized attention of our dedicated teachers. This enables our instructors to closely monitor and support each student's progress, fostering an environment conducive to individual growth and success.
Our curriculum is designed based on a direct method, ensuring a well-rounded focus on key language components, including conversation, grammar, writing, and listening skills. This comprehensive approach creates an effective learning environment, equipping students with a robust foundation in the Italian language. At Accademia Riaci, we believe in the power of personalized education to transform language acquisition into a rewarding and fulfilling journey.
