Ever thought about studying Italian language ? Many people did it succesfully, and they recommend it (list of references available); you should really follow their example.

Why ? Here the three main reasons (or, at least, three good reasons):


  1. To study Italian is a good excuse to make holidays in Italy.

    As everyone knows, the best way to learn a language is to live in the country for some time, therefore if you decide to study Italian you have a great reason to come to Italy, and Italy is a fantastic place to be: the cities, the seaside, the art, the food, the wine... and if you come to Scuola Toscana you can have all this things together – just persuade your boss to pay for your language course at Scuola Toscana Firenze, and we will do the rest !

  2. To study Italian is a good way to socialize

    Once upon a time, Italian was the language of trade, finance and business – fortunately, that era is over; nowadays people study Italian because they are interested in art, fashion, cooking, or just for fun. Therefore, if you study Italian you have high probabilities to be in company of nice people who learn the language with good intentions... plus, Italians notoriously like to talk with anybody, so you are sure you can use your Italian!

  3. To study Italian allows you to understand the Italian “way of life”

    At least for the last 50 years Italy has been living in the middle of various crisis: economical crisis, social crisis, political crisis – but Italian are still among the happiest people on the planet. Learning Italian is the best way to discover the Italian way of life, which gives you unbeatable arms to survive in very dysfunctional communities and nightmarish bureaucratic environments (Scuola Toscana Firenze offers cours in Italian for business, by the way)

Courses at Scuola Toscana

Scuola Toscana LogoAccording to the time you have available, can attend one course of Italian language just for one week, and maybe make full use of your time with a very intensive course like the Florence Discovery or with a private Italian course.

If you decide to dedicate one or more months to the study of the Italian language, maybe you can relax a little more and choose the Gold course ore couple the study of Italian language with the History of Art courses or with one of the Cooking courses we offer.
