"Lingua" group course

Pintadera classroom Italian language studies in Sardina
Lesson in the summer

The heart of Centro Mediterraneo Pintadera’s Italian program is the Lingua group language course with maximum 8 students per class.

The lessons are typically divided into two segments, each led by a different instructor. The first part places a strong emphasis on Italian grammar and structure, while the second part is dedicated to applying and practicing these linguistic rules in real-life situations.

Instead of relying on conventional Italian textbooks, we create our own class materials and resources that are tailored to the specific interests, abilities, and requirements of the group. This method has proven to be highly effective in teaching adults from diverse backgrounds, as it resonates with individuals on a personal level.

Concentrating in class

Pintadera takes great care in selecting readings from Italy's most renowned poets, playwrights, and novelists. In addition to this, we incorporate a wide range of contemporary materials such as newspapers, magazines, radio broadcasts, and TV programs into the learning experience. This approach not only enhances the students' linguistic and communicative skills but also offers valuable insights into Italian culture, history, and current affairs.

Centro Mediterraneo Pintadera offers three fundamental levels of Italian proficiency: Elementary, Intermediate, and Advanced. For absolute beginners, classes typically commence on the first Monday of each month. Intermediate and Advanced learners have the flexibility to start on any Monday, depending on their individual circumstances. Lingua group lessons are held in the mornings between 9:00 and 13:00.

Our Lingua standard Italian language courses take place in small groups of 3 to 8 students from Monday to Friday from 9:00 to 13:00 with a short break around 11:00. Should only two students enroll in a group language course (Lingua A, B, C) the weekly hours would be reduced from 20 to 15. Should there only be one student, the hours would be reduced to 10 per week.
Absolute beginner courses generally start on the first Monday of the month.
The Lingua language courses are not guaranteed between November and March and require specific confirmation during that period.
