Press release from: Scuola Leonardo Da Vinci

/ PR Agency: Scuola Leonardo da Vinci
The Italian language School Leonardo da Vinci again this year organizes the “Academic School Year” or “Gap Year” courses in its schools located in the most beautiful and charming cities in Italy: Florence, Milan, Rome and Siena.

The “Academic School Year” (http://www.scuolaleonardo.com/gap-year-in-italy.php) is an Italian language course, thought for beginner and elementary students, which lasts for 32 weeks and leads to the internationally-recognized AIL (Accademia Italiana di Lingua) diplomas (DILI-Intermediate and DALI-Advanced).

Lessons are only planned in Italian from the very start to allow students an easier comprehension. The study program was carefully thought also to integrate speaking and writing skills, but without missing out important cultural components.

At first, students will attend a Standard Course focused on language, grammar and daily conversations, and subsequently, in the month before the exam, there will be additional lessons of preparation for the DILI-examination of AIL.

During the second term, the Standard Course, with a greater emphasis on the written language, continues and is concluded after a further 240 lessons, inclusive of a further four weeks of DALI-exam preparation. In addition, the program broadens to include general culture lessons.

The general culture unit includes lessons on topics related to the Italian culture, such as history of art, business and current affairs, fashion and design, Italian history and civilization. At the end of the course, the school will ask students to write a final essay on a topic related to Italian culture and this task will be made easier by 10 lessons of private tutoring to prepare the students’ essays.

Starting dates for the next Academic School Year Course are available on the School’s website (http://www.scuolaleonardo.com/Italian-language-dates-newyear.html#AcademicYearItaly).

Scuola Leonardo Da Vinci is one of Italy’s largest providers of in-country Italian courses in Italy since 1977. It is present in the most beautiful cities of Italy (Florence, Milan, Rome, Siena). Each year the company welcomes students from 60 countries in its Italian language schools.
