About the school

Europass is an Italian language school in the historic center of Florence. 25 years ago the school was founded by a number of teachers because they wanted to have their own place where they could be hospitable, open and a place where it was easy to make contact with others and learn new things. Sixty percent of Europass students are complete beginners and yet the school has one sacred rule which shouldn’t scare you off: from the very beginning, the teachers only try to speak Italian to the students. The school says: "From experience we know that it works and it helps students to learn quickly. Everyone is involved and should try to speak as much as possible without having to worry about making mistakes." The school often organizes games, film clubs and discussion evenings to improve language skills. On the school trips you discover new places, new flavors and new smells while you practice your Italian. The school building is perhaps one of the finest in the center of Florence, called Palazzo Galletti, a neoclassical building from 1831, designed by the architects Vittorio Bellini and Antonio Catelani. It is a few steps from Florence Cathedral and Piazza Santa Croce square. The medium-sized school has 11 classrooms, a lounge and a private roof terrace.

Florence

The Italian fashion industry was born here and the city stood at the cradle of the Renaissance. If something should describe Florence, it would be the words 'Style' and 'Class'. Make a detour through the compact city after your language lessons and be enchanted by the sculptures and masterpieces of architects as Michelangelo and Botticelli. The narrow cobbled streets often lead to elegant palaces with marble basilicas from the 15th and 16th centuries. A cinematic party. But, a walk through the maze of medieval streets offers much more. Stroll along the larger or family-runned fashion boutiques that sell elegant and timeless items. Not surprising, because designer Guccio Gucci, among others, opened his haute couture boutiques in the city in the twenties and that still leaves traces behind. And, how could it be different: also in the kitchens of this Tuscan capital quality rises far above quantity. Restaurants and bistros serve dishes made from local, seasonal products accompanied by the purest wines from wineries located in the hills surrounding the city. Despite the fact that Florence is relatively compact in size with its 380,000 inhabitants, she is put on the must-go-to list for many travel gurus. If only because the Tuscan lifestyle here is so enviable sweet.

Thank you for the wonderful experience @Europass Team!
I enjoyed the standard language course with Enzo for four weeks and couldn’t have wished for more. What I was aiming for was of course practicing speaking and conversation management which was the biggest part of the course.
They also offer trips and guided visits to museums and walking tours through the city with some of their teachers who have studied history of arts.
Apart from the fact that the building is simply beautiful, with a wonderful courtyard and balconies, the service by everybody working there is great.

I would advise anybody who wants to do an intensive course to first only book the standard course and then add extra lessons when you’ve already started the course at the language school since they need enough students to participate to be able to offer the lessons which you book in the intensive court.

Absolutely an amazing school for foerign students! I chose a week long intense course with Europass and paiting class in the afternoon, from the very first contact till my arrival, the office manager Martina has offered impeccable service and warmest communications. My instructor was professional and attentive, I enjoyed my class to the fullest. This is the first time I studied in Florence in person and it really was an unforgettable experience.

I have had a great time at Europass! The approach to language learning is structured, with time devoted to both grammar and speaking, but remains fun and relaxed as different activities are always used throughout each day. I have had fun learning Italian, learning about the history and culture and meeting others from around the world! A great way to spend your time in Florence! All the teachers and staff are lovely and are always happy to help you!

Europass was without doubt the best language learning experience I could have hoped for. I did the A1 (beginner) standard course and I absolutely loved it! My teachers were all incredibly friendly and encouraging so it was a very safe space to learn and improve. I went to Europass hoping to build my confidence with Italian and kick start my language learning journey and the school delivered that and then some! My host mum was delightful, cooked brilliant food and really helped me to practice what I learnt in class. I loved every moment of my experience in Florence and I'm already planning my return!

My time at Europass was a unique experience. The school is located right in the city, close to the beautiful Duomo and the impressive Santa Croce, so it has a great location. It is a very friendly place and especially the high quality of the teachers was very impressive. I also met many other great people in the courses with whom I went on exciting trips organized by the school. I will definitely come back on my next vacation and until then I will take some online courses at Europass so that I can continue to improve my Italian throughout.
Highly recommendable!
