Our Italian Language School in Florence & Online

Europass is an Italian language school based in Florence, Italy, offering courses both online and on-site.

We founded it almost 30 years ago so that we could have our own place: welcoming, open, where it was easy to connect with others and experience something new.

Courses that satisfy all your needs

Learning a new language always goes hand in hand with meeting new people and getting out of your comfort zone. With Europass, you can do just that, all while discovering the beautiful country that is Italy.

Our language holidays are a fun way to learn Italian, also giving you the opportunity to explore the extraordinary variety of Italian culture, from art and cuisine, all the way to yoga.

Our Italian courses have been designed to provide you with an all-encompassing learning experience, covering written, oral, reading, and listening skills, and much more. At the same time, all our students can plunge into an array of leisure activities, as well as guided educational field trips and weekend getaways.

Italian courses online

Whether you wish to meet new people through our group courses, or you prefer to follow a personalized individual learning plan that satisfies all your needs, there’s no more excuses; thanks to our Italian courses online, you can study Italian whenever you want, from wherever you are.

We even created our own e-learning platform to reproduce the free, cheerful, welcoming environment that we’ve been nurturing at our school in Florence for 30 years.

The platform allows you to access all the study material, such as workbooks for levels ranging from A1 to C1, that you can use both in and outside of the classroom.

Courses face to face

Do you want to really get to know the city, get immersed in its customs, and find some hidden gems?

Our face-to-face courses allow our students to live an intense experience in a city full of overwhelming beauty, deeply rooted traditions, amazing people, exquisite food, and many other treasures that are waiting to be discovered.

Here, students really have a possibility to let go, live in the moment, and go home with a totally different spirit and perspective.

Do you want to experience all this? Learn more about our face-to-face courses.

Our method

Although 60% of our students start from an A1 or A2 level, therefore having little to no knowledge of Italian, we encourage them to start speaking right away.

It’s our unwritten rule, but there’s no need to worry: our pluriannual experience has shown that this method works, and it’s really efficient. Everyone starts from the same point, and sooner or later, everyone gets used to trying, without fear of making mistakes.

Our teaching method revolves first and foremost around practice, which, accompanied by grammar and rules of the language, allows our students to immediately experience the pleasure of advancing towards proficiency.

Both our online and face-to-face courses run in small groups of around 5 people, with a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 12 students.

Our online platform and all our classrooms are fully equipped with all the necessary tools to provide the best learning experience possible.

This allows for the combination of efficiency and the possibility of learning together with others.

We often organize games, movie screenings, and conversation sessions: they’re helpful in the improvement of linguistic skills. And this language-learning experience is accompanied by educational trips that marry the pleasure of learning a language with the discovery of new places and unique flavors.

At the end of your stay, we will release a certificate of attendance of the level of the course that you attended, in line with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

If you have any questions, we invite you to visit our FAQ page, or alternatively, get in contact with us via email at europass@europass.it.

*Obviously, if you cannot understand, we are able to speak English, Spanish, French or German to communicate and solve problems.

Where are we?

We are lucky enough to be situated in one of the most beautiful buildings in the center of Florence, il Palazzo Galletti. We’re just a few minutes’ walk away from Piazza Duomo and Piazza Santa Croce.

The Galletti is a historic neoclassical building that was designed by the architect Vittorio Bellini back in 1831.

Our school occupies the second floor, the exterior of which accommodates four marble statues symbolizing the four seasons, that is, the symbol of the building.

Marble is also a really characteristic element of the interior, as the three-story staircase is beautifully complemented by a marble balustrade. The majestic, amazingly adorned ionic columns represent the final touch that completes the entryway.

Note: the school is equipped with a stairclimber, thanks to which we can welcome people with disabilities. This way, we reduce the impact that architectural barriers may have on the access to our facilities.
