Would you ever cook a dish without tasting the ingredients first? Or try to learn the art of taking pictures before you were compelled by the beauty of an image? At Collina Italiana, we believe you must immerse yourself in the Italian culture in order to truly learn the language. That’s what we call the Collina Italiana Method.
We strongly believe that learning a language is not a mnemonic exercise but a full experience that includes the goal to create a passionate community, curious about the Italian language, sentiments, literature and way of living.
Our approach to teaching is to encourage you to immerse yourself in authentic Italian habits to help understand the importance of Italian culture, while learning to speak like a local. You’ll constantly be exposed to traditions, culinary secrets, folklore and words.
Our teachers all have extensive Italian backgrounds. They live the language, as do all of our partners and people who present at our webinars, workshops and any Collina Italiana sponsored event.
We evaluate each student carefully, focusing on their language level and expectations for the school. We work together with you to create your plan to determine the best solution to achieve your goals.
We attract a community of people who are passionate about Italy and its culture. This creates opportunities for networking, events and the chance to share experiences with like-minded individuals.
