A 20-hour course, Monday to Friday from 9 am to 1 pm. The classes are few in number, enabling teachers to get to know their pupils individually and give them their personal attention. This helps us to cater closely for students' individual needs as well as facilitating friendly relations.

Ordinary courses have a mid-morning break during which everyone goes to a coffee-bar together: a chance to have a chat and get to know each other better. Talking Italian freely is a good way to consolidate what you've learnt, especially in an Italian bar over a warm cappuccino!

If you should by chance be the only student at your level, you can do a two-hour individual course every day, usually in the afternoon with time to be agreed with the school office, at the same price as the ordinary group course. These lessons are to be completed within a maximum of two weeks. If there is a national or local holiday during the week of the course, Arca will organise an additional cultural activity.

Prices include finding and booking accommodation, didactic materials, cultural activities and attendance certificate.
