YOUR ITALIAN LANGUAGE SCHOOL

Italian Language School since 1986

Il Centro  Italian language School opened its doors to its first students in Milan in 1986. Enrica Cavo and Luisa Turolla thought up the idea for the school after having taught Italian language in both Italy and the US. At the time there were no specific didactic materials; the only available teaching resource was an outdated textbook.

However, as teachers they had developed their own teaching materials which had been refined over the years via classes with foreign students – most of which came from the US, Japan and Germany.

They set themselves a challenge: to create a quality Italian language school which relies on an innovative method and authentic didactic materials. In three words – grammar in practice.

This led them to becoming pioneers in the field. Students quickly began to appreciate their novel approach and the high quality of their work. While the internet wasn’t widely used at the time, more and more students attended our classes thanks to word of mouth.

It was incredibly exciting whenever our Italian language school’s doors opened and in walked a student from New Zealand, Canada or another distant country who wanted to enroll because a friend had enthusiastically shared their experience at Il Centro.One by one, our current teachers – with their Masters degrees and qualifications in teaching Italian to foreigners – joined the school.

Together we’ve become a specialised team, ready to satisfy the needs of our students from all over the world. Even today, we meet every month to update each other and produce new teaching materials.
