Learn Italian in Bologna with Italians not with tourists

Total immersion in an authentic Italian environment is possible at Cultura Italiana, because there is no interference from other languages. In a few weeks all are able to communicate in an authentic Italian way (not like a tourist). We teach only Italian with a high degree of specialization, not other languages. We do not want to blend the languages together. An average 950 people attend our school every year, with an average weekly participation of 72 people
