Italian for Beginners – Group & Private Lessons, in Florence or Online

Do you think Italian is too difficult to learn from scratch?

Most of our students are new to the Italian language.

So, after 30 years of experience, we can say that we are experts in working with beginners.

Course description

The first stages of learning a language can be challenging, but with our friendly and supportive approach, we aim to make the process as smooth and enjoyable as possible.

Our approach to teaching Italian is unique as we believe that speaking the language from the very first lesson is key to our students’ success.

This will encourage you to try speaking Italian without fear of making mistakes.

However, no worries if you can’t understand! Our teachers and staff will be able to communicate with you in English, Spanish, French, or German to solve the problem.

I liked the atmosphere at the school, the teachers were amazing and there were students from all over the world. The lessons were fun and very efficient at the same time, I could learn a lot in a short time. The city tours were great: all in Italian, of course, so you can prove your language skills and get a lot of interesting details. It was a great time at the school and in the amazing city of Florence!

I’m currently doing the evening course at Europass, and so far, it has proven to be a brilliant experience. The classes are small, allowing for a really friendly approach to learning Italian. The teacher is funny and interesting, making sure we understand everything but also stretching us intellectually. Highly recommended!


I started my classes at Europass and not only has my Italian improved hugely (particularly my grammar as the lessons focuses a lot on this) but it has been great to meet people all around the world who are studying Italian at the same level too! All the staff at Europass are extremely helpful and I’m sure that anyone who studies Italian with them at any level would improve a great deal!
