Courses are held on a weekly basis. Each course consists of 15 lessons / 22.5 hours (90 minutes per lesson). Classes will have a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 12 students each. Please note that the minimum required number of subscriptions must be reached in order for each course to be confirmed.
A timetable is available in the brochure on the top right-hand corner of this page.


Classes will be run through Zoom, a free platform you can easily access through any device (computer, laptop, tablet, mobile phone) with the following features:

  • internet connection;
  • a screen large enough for you to comfortably read the material;
  • built-in or plugged-in speakers, microphone and webcam.

Zoom is available both on Apple and Android app stores.
Alternatively, you can download Zoom on your computer or laptop from the website

You do not need to register for a Zoom account, but should you decide to register you can select the "free account" option: our teachers are all licensed so you will not need a Pro account to avail of all the features of our online classes.


Our language courses are based on the standards of the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

* Please note that the Institute is not in a position to offer free assessment tests for the online Autumn courses.

If you are not a returning student and wish to enrol for a level other than absolute beginner please provide a certificate of attendance from your previous language school stating your current level or arrange a self assessment.

Please select a course at a level that corresponds to your existing knowledge of Italian. If you are unsure, you can determine your own level of proficiency in Italian by working through the descriptors for each of the CEFR language levels, available HERE.* **
