A 20-hour course, Monday to Friday from 9 am to 1 pm. The classes are generally small (4-10 students), allowing 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 happen to be the only student at your level, you can do a one hour and 45 minutes individual course every day, usually in the afternoon at a time to be agreed with the school office, at the same price as the ordinary group course.

For levels C1 and C2 please contact the school before enrolling because in certain periods of the year we may not have enough students to form higher level groups. We are very careful in organizing classes according to the level and we do our best to avoid mixed level classes.

If there is a national or local holiday during your course, Arca will be closed for that day and will organize an additional cultural activity.
