Posted: 12th May 2015 12:38

ELLCI is a specialist Italian language and cultural school for foreign students, located in the heart of Milan.  The school is highly recommended by the Italian Department of Education, the Italian Cultural Institute and the Italian Department for Foreign Affairs.  With 25 years’ experience of tutoring Italian, the school’s extensively qualified and passionate teachers craft a serene and cosy environment in which to learn.  Classes are small and interactive, and focus on communication through role play, games, debates and video.  ELLCI welcomes people from across the world, giving students the opportunity to learn in an international atmosphere which is a great stepping stone for those with ambitions to study or work aboard. 

The only way to truly get to grips with a language is to be immersed in the local way of life and keep practising outside the classroom.  ELLCI’s spacious and comfortable premises are situated perfectly in central Milan along a street lined with the charming architectural remnants of old Milan.  Its location is serviced by two metro lines and seven bus routes, making it the perfect base for exploring the city and testing your linguistic skills.  In the immediate vicinity, there are countless pizzerias and cafés to enjoy on your lunch break and, Corso Buenos Aires, one of the city’s main shopping areas.  From the school, Milan’s main sites are less than 10 minutes away by public transport meaning you can soak up some culture at the Teatro alla Scala and its museum, marvel at ‘Pietà Rondanini’ di Michelangelo or get a snap of the Arco della Pace.  ELLCI also run tons of fantastic planned excursions to explore Milan’s most spectacular attractions.  Plus, every year, ELLCI organises a free vacation in Sardinia for students who enrol on a Standard course for a minimum of nine months.  ELLCI also offer reservation in a variety of lodging including host families, campus residence, apartments and hotels in the midst of Milan.  

ELLCI offers Italian programmes across six linguistic levels – A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2 – based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.  The school focuses on developing vital skills in reading, listening, writing and speaking through exciting communicative teaching.  ELLCI is a centre of the CELI (Certificate of Knowledge of Italian Language) and CIC (Certificate of Business Italian) examinations, that issue internationally recognised certificates.

One of the most popular programmes is the Standard Course, which offers a full-immersive experience of Italian life with 20 hours of lessons per week and cultural activities around Milan.  ELLCI’s Standard Courses enable students to confidently acquire essential linguistic skills and develop a ‘fifth’ ability: pupils have the opportunity to learn non-verbal communication and codes through subjects related to different aspects of Italian culture, lifestyle and nature.  As well as a fantastic scholarship scheme for this programme, the course also provides the necessary documentation to obtain an Italian Study Visa.  Additionally, the institute offers a variety of courses that are available throughout the year:

·         Morning and afternoon Standard Courses

·         Annual and two year Standard Courses

·         Individual and Intensive Courses

·         Corporate Courses

·         Study holidays
