By adopting interactive teaching methods as well as a fun and relaxed learning environment, Happy Languages aims to provide you with a high quality and enjoyable language-learning experience.
Happy Languages offers a wide range of Italian courses for any needs: interacting evening courses at any level, crash courses over a weekend for a full immersion in the Italian language, one-to-one lessons tailored on each student and conversation classes to practice once per month. Students are constantly engaged in different activities and motivated to use the language in real communicative situations. We are CILS centre (CILS is the international Italian language certification released by the University for Foreigners of Siena) and DITALS centre, which means that we train our own Italian teachers for a high quality teaching.
At Happy Languages is possible to choose among a wide choice of Spanish evening weekday courses depending on the sudent's level: engaging classes perfect to learn the language mixing different activities and working together, guided by highly qualified teachers. We also offer crash courses lasting 8 hours over a weekend and conversation sessions once per month, a great opportunity to practice the language in an informal and relaxed atmosphere. Students who can't enrol in a regular course can opt for one-to-one lessons to be scheduled with the teacher choosing the time and place that suits the best.
