A quality school where language matters
Schools are often the same. Same posters on the walls, same furniture, same ready-made modules.
Our view is different.
Learning Italian is not just a matter of grammar: it also entails the use of the hands, assimilating culture, a quip while having an ice-cream, sharing the treasures of a museum, chatting to friends and others you bump into.
Steeped in history, Genoa combines a unique blend of stunning landscapes, exquisite art and excellent food in a moderately sized modern city, boasting an extensive historic centre. This coastline city enjoys mild temperatures, kissed by the Mediterranean sunshine. Our aim is to turn all this into the perfect scenario for a select range of highly professional activities, where quality means attention to detail, and learning is conceived as the pleasure of viewing new horizons.
A stylish school in stylish premises, Amalelingue is based in via San Lorenzo, in the very heart of Genoa, an ideal starting point to discover the city. It is located in the liveliest part of the historic centre, in a pedestrian area, within walking distance of the most interesting sites. Suffice it to raise your eyes and admire from the very window of your classroom.

Typical Day

Amalelingue organizes Italian language and culture courses in Genoa, open to students of all ages and levels, spanning A1 (breakthrough) to C2 (mastery) (Common European Framework of Reference for Modern Languages of the Council of Europe).
Our Italian language courses are essentially communicative and practical, aimed at developing students' authentic linguistic and active skills. They may vary according to the number of classes, attendance and lesson type (standard, intensive, non-intensive, in 2, one-to-one, for seniors, Erasmus, online, in the workplace).
Our teachers are not only mother tongue but also specialized, highly qualified and experienced. The teaching method is basically communicative and the approach, as well as all the teaching material used, is continually being updated.
The proof of our expertise? We teach teachers.
Special programmes combine Italian with cookery, pilates, photography or sailing. And for those who want to return home with an upgraded CV, have a look at our dedicated certification courses in Italian.
Guided walks, Italian films, visits to museums and exibitions, slow tour (a special, gastronomy treat), aperitifs, a night out at the theatre or cinema are just a taste of our activity programme.
Students can start on any Monday and are to sit for an entrance test to find out which level is right for them. Online preliminary assessment available.
