In 48 weeks you learn the Italian language, starting from the basics, and ending with a high level of expertise, that you can finish off with a certificate exam to prove the level of knowledge achieved.

The Leonardo da Vinci school boasts 4 school locations across Italy with the same programmes and prices. Therefore, studying with us means that you have the incredible opportunity to split your stay across different locations, enriching your own linguistic study with a global and cultural experience.

Studying for a year in Italy truly offers the possibility to achieve the highest level of Italian, as indicated in the assessment table of the European Language Portfolio, at an excellent price:
those who book our 48 week intensive course will profit from an extraordinary reduction in price: 110 euros a week, instead of 180 euros.

Lessons start every Monday for students that already have some knowledge of the Italian language, and every 2 weeks for students that are absolute beginners.

In addition to the studying, the expertise of our staff and the constant assistance available from our secretaries throughout your stay, there is still lots of time for socializing and fun: our school organizes a rich programme of activities, changing every week, that are offered alongside the Italian courses.

At the weekends, you can go on excursions and trips organized by the school, to see the most interesting attractions of the area, or you can organize trips yourself to explore the surrounding areas, or to relax.

RECOMMENDED FOR: those students who are willing to spend a long time in Italy and take a break from the routine of their homeland.

My experience with the course Sabbatical Year in Milan:

"Ciao, I'm a student of Scuola Leonardo da Vinci. I studied there for 7 months and now, thanks to the school, I speak Italian very well. I found many friends and knew Milan very well. I must say that teachers are professionals and they know how to teach well! The lessons are very interesting and always different. Free time at school is organized so fun and exciting. There are many excursions, almost every day. We went many times even to the bars, discos, restaurants, etc. Almost every weekend the school organizes a trip to another town near Milan. The teachers behave like friends and always help you so much! Now I am very happy to have chosen Scuola Leonardo da Vinci to learn Italian and have fun in Italy”.

My experience with the Sabbatical Year Course at Scuola Leonardo da Vinci in Florence:

"Hi everyone I am Roberto! I am Cypriot-Finnish and I came to Florence to join Scuola Leonardo da Vinci for 6 months. These 6 months were simply incredible, not only for the fact that I was learning Italian, but also because of the environment and all the great people I met from all over the world! The teaching method was wonderful and really useful, because every weeek we had the opportunity to learn with new teachers and different styles of teaching. The school helped me a lot not only to learn Italian, but also with all the other things I needed and it made my life in Italy even better."
