MUY BUENS ESCUELA
Cultura Italiana, ce ne sont pas seulement des cours d'italien (ce qui est déjà pas mal!), c'est aussi tout un programme culturel facultatif: visites guidées, conférences, cours de cuisine...

Full house and kept the room engaged throughout the many slides and new information.
Furthermore Cultura Italiana offers a variety of great extracurricular activities! The city of Bologna is wonderful - I will definitely return!!👍😃
I've been in Cultura Italiana for 2 weeks.
Before I decided to start studying here, I contacted the school to ask a few questions.
Federica, the secretary, answered all of my questions in a very good English. She was very nice and even suggested me to join a class before deciding if I want to learn here or not. From this moment I felt that I'm in good hands.
I arrived for the trial lesson and it really went well so I decided to register.
The staff helped me to find a good accomendation. Federica, Silvia and Ariana (hope that I'm not wrong with the name) were very gentile, helpful and sensetive to my needs.
And what can I say about the teachers and the lessons?
What a great atmosphire we had during the lessons. The teachers are warm, positive and funny. You can really absorbs the Italian culture just in the lessons. I really improved my Italian during my 2-weeks-stay.
One of the main reasons to that is the social activities we had during every afternoon. We had aperitivos, trips to the near hills and in the city center and also interesting lectures. Everything is in italian. Everything. That's amazing.
This school is putting a lot of effort that the students will really learn italian but also for enjoying their experience in Bologna.
Bologna is a very special city. The atmosphire is chill and very authentic. I was really fascinated by it. This school has a big part of my amazing experience in Bologna.
If you consider to come here, you don't need to consider it anymore. You arrived to the perfect place.
I want to thank all the staff - Marina, Stefania, Beatrice, Federica, Silvia, Ariana, Francesco and all the others. You all are amazing people. Thank you very much for. I had a great time and you are the reason for it.
I have no doubt that I'll be back.
Grazie mille e arrivederci 🙂
I will recommend it to anyone who would like to learn italian.
I stayed in an apartment that the school arranged. It was in the city center, and I was pleased with every aspect of my living accommodations and my learning experience. I met great people of all ages, with varying cultural backgrounds. Sometimes we explored the city together, and sometimes I ventured out alone. I felt safe and connected, at every turn. The city is amazing and the school is wonderful.
I also higly recommend the interesting excursions and of course the cooking lessons.
... and Bologna is a truely wonderful city!
