Italian in Genoa

Study Italian in Genoa

Perfectly located on the Italian Riviera, Genoa is an old port city with charm and architectural grace. Because of its lack of high tourism, Genoa affords its visitors an authentic Italian culture with affordable prices.

Its medieval old town is an intricate labyrinth of alleyways, where among the shops, restaurants, and local stores, visitors can catch sight of the city's noble past in its 16th century palazzos, baroque edifices, and Romanesque churches, looming over the little piazzas.

While Genoa is only an hour away from Milan, a world famous bustling city, it is also close to the small beautiful gems of Lake Como, Cinque Terre, Portofino and Santa Margherita.

Our Intensive Italian language courses take place all year round, from Monday to Friday, usually from 9am to 1pm (20 hours a week).
Students take a placement test in order to be placed at an appropriate level.
There are seven levels: beginner, elementary, pre-intermediate, intermediate, upper-intermediate, advanced and proficiency according to European standards.

Our classes are very small (max.10 people) and no matter the location are held in the city centre. We feel that small class sizes are essential to facilitate the learning process and ensure that focus is placed on the learning requirements of the individual student, and on helping him/her to overcome any difficulties in a friendly environment. The range of courses offered allows the student to adapt the program to their individual needs.

Our Italian language courses start every Monday. Each student is encouraged to take a short test before starting a course so that his/her language needs can be ascertained, and it can be ensured that they are placed in a group of a similar level of ability and knowledge. On completion of a course the student will be awarded an attendance certificate; in addition, the students are also offered the opportunity to take the officially recognized tests.

Continuing my studies in Florence, Italy. I need some guidance please?

Ok, this is what I'm going to do. I going to go to a college here in the U.S but that will only be my home institution cause I will spend 4 semesters in Florence with a studying abroad program that's not affiliated with my college. I will then transfer the credits. No w i will only do four semesters in florence because 60 credits is the limit to what I can transfer to my college. They don't have florence so the rest of my college experience I will do it in Genoa and Rome.

Lets say I want to stay in Italy after college and continue my University studies there. How does that…

You will need a visa to study in Italy regardless of whether you're in an affiliated school or a non affiliated school relative to your US university. The Italian site for visas is here: . You will need to demonstrate that you have been accepted for the entrance exam for the school plus you need to show adequate resources to support yourself during your studies without working (a minimum of €417.30 per month). You also have to have an adequate place to live

Rather credits transfer or not depends on the policies of your university. You're best off asking the guidance…

Italian University's near a beach or waterfront? Looking to Study Abroad?

Im looking to study abroad this summer in Italy or Sicily and I would like to know if there are any known university's that are near a beach? My self Research has failed.


I wouldn't suggest you go to Sicily. Opt for Liguria (north-western Italy, close to France). The place is marvelous, the beaches are unbelievable. The city name is Genoa, and from there you are a breath away from Portofino (Madonna's favorite Italian spot) and the Cote d'Azur, in France, Montecarlo and what not.
The cuisine is superb, and the university is.....well I studied there, and I am now a teacher.

Is Genoa, Italy beautiful?

I'm studying abroad there next year for my junior year of high school, and as excited as I am, I have heard of it as a dirty and not necessarily aesthetically pleasing city. That scares me. Why couldn't I have gotten Venice or Rome?

Genoa: Genova in Italian, Zena (read "Ssèna") in local dialect.
I like the city, but as you can imagine, it's a big harbour, so it's not that beautiful in some parts.
There is the second biggest aquarium in Europe!
Anyway the region around, Liguria, is simply stunning.
5-15 minutes by train and you are in places like these:
near Genoa there is Turin, with the famous Mole Antonellian and the Egyptian museum, Milan with the Last Supper and the amazing Duomo and Tuscany (Firenze, Pisa, Siena, Lucca and so on).
If you have a car, give a look to…

Never been overseas, heading to Italy/Spain next week, need tips?

Any tips for a newbie overseas traveler? I'm 17 and going with a class for study abroad for one week.
Hitting up Florence, Pisa, Genoa, Venice, Barcelona

Need tips on packing and what to be prepared for in another country.
Thanks for the tips so far-- I actually need help for my phone as well. I have t-mobile and I dont want to get a crazy bill for roaming. Whats the best way to call home?

Be wary of pickpockets and con-men especially taxi-drivers. Keep your passport and your money in safe places, and on you if you go out. Never leave your coat, handbag or rucksack unattended, even to go to the counter to order or collect food.
Losing money or worse your passport will spoil a good holiday.

Have a good trip.
