Italian Language Teaching methods

The educational method of the Centro Italiano Florence starts from the idea of “communicative approach”, which maintains that the purpose of teaching a language is not just to achieve linguistic competence, but to achieve a far more complex and articulated communicative competence, concerned with all aspects of a communication which is capable of conveying meaning. A foreign language, therefore, is only learned if you understand the culture of the country where it’s being spoken: language and culture are very closely linked, with a bond that cannot be split.

The pragmatic and cultural aspect of a language must be part of its teaching, and that is why at Centro Italiano in Florence, we offer you a language course that is not just limited to its more superficial elements, but which is considered in a fuller global and holistic context.
