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.

I did a 2-weeks intensive course in Europass and my experience in the school was great. Teachers are both fun and very professional and I enjoyed every minute of my course. As a language teacher myself I highly recommend Europass to learn and improve your Italian. I will definitely come back to the school in my next visit to Florence.

For me this was the most efficient way of learning as much as I can about the italian language in a short period of time. I had a great teacher, and the learning group was small, only 3 students, which made it possible for my teacher to focus on all of us individually, and give us the best possible learning expirience. Super kind people, would absolutely recommend it.

I just finished a month of Italian at Europass at the A2 level. Although this was my first experience with learning a foreign language, I am not sure how it could have been better. I enrolled in immersion Italian which included 2 hours of conversation (where you had to speak Italian with encouragement and gentle corrections from the teachers), 2 hours of Italian grammar, 2 hours of 1 on 1 with a teacher (where we discussed cultures, lifestyles, food, grammar, etc., all in Italian, of course). In addition on 2 days a week, I had excursions within the city with Maurizio, who has a very evident love of history and who would guide us in Italian. Tatiana (cosi vivace), Yasmin (che carina!) and Enzo (molto intellettuale) are great teachers while Ulrike and Elisabetta provided all the support you could need. The location is within a 10 minute walk of pretty much anywhere you would want to be in Florence. I am told my Italian is far better than when I started, so obviously they did something right. Also met some great classmates (and hopefully long term fiends) and we had an absolute blast! Great job Europass for a job well done!!! Forse ci vediamo di nuovo!
