Established in 1989, Scuola Toscana-L'Italiano specializes in Italian language and culture for foreign learners. Our school is situated in the historical center of Florence, where students immerse in the city’s historical and cultural heritage. We are recognized by the Italian Ministry of Education as well as a member of the Association of the Schools of Italian as a Second Language (ASILS) and Accademia Italiana di Lingua (AIL). We cooperate with the Adult Education Department of the Florence City Council when developing language courses. We also offer "Bildungsurlaub" programs recognized by the Kultusministerkonferenz - an assembly of ministers of education of the German states.
Our courses start every Monday throughout the year and are suitable for all proficiency levels - from beginner to advanced. We cater to individuals with zero knowledge of Italian to those with mastery of the language. They join group classes, which have a maximum of 8 students to ensure personalized attention from the instructor. They can choose to take courses for as short as one week or as long as three years, depending on their learning goals. We also have special programs: Jewellery course, Florence Discovery, Photography course, Florentine Handicraft, and Music and Opera, among others.
