Italikurs Italian Language
Italikurs proposes a new way to learn the Italian language, combining hours
of serious study with the fun of being on a holiday, an alternative to traditional courses.Today those, who study Italian normally do it for pleasure, for the desire to learn about another culture, to read the menu of a traditional inn or understand how to live in Italy.
Mergozzo was chosen as the place, where the courses are held because of its magical atmosphere, its rich history and charm. It's an ideal place to spend a study-vacation outside the box of a sterile classroom.
You can have a pleasant holiday at Lago di Mergozzo, which is one of the clearest lakes in North Italy, just a few miles away from the beautiful Lago Maggiore. Mergozzo maintained its original romantic
picturesque atmosphere and allows therefore deep insights into the culture, tradition and everyday life of the Italians.
TREAT YOURSELF TO A FULL IMMERSION LINGUISTIC EXPERIENCE YOU WIILL NEVER FORGET IN A WONDERFUL CORNER OF ITALY.
All Italian language courses are taught by a native speaker specialized in teaching Italian as a foreign language (qualified with a European Certificate in Language Teaching to Adults EUROLTA).Convinced that the best way to learn is through having fun, ItaliKurs considers the pleasure of the student as a top priority for learning. Students learn not only by memorizing new vocabulary and grammar, but through conversing daily with different native speakers, covering all aspects of Italian lifestyle.Students discover the language through cooking, art, music and everything that makes Italy one of the most appreciated countries in the world.
The method does not exclude the teaching of grammar rules, but recognises that alone these rules are not sufficient to achieve genuine mastery of the language.
Courses are based upon a communicative methodology that places the learner at the center of teaching as an actor/discoverer of Italian language and culture.
From the first lesson through the entire course, only Italian is spoken.

ItaliKurs specialises in courses of small groups and covers all aspects of the language with a particular emphasis on developing communicative skills in speaking and writing.
The courses progress through 3 levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced. Lessons are held from Monday to Friday or by arrangement and will last for 50 minutes. Classes are limited to a maximum of six students.
The small class size and the regular practice make it possible for the teacher to follow each student individually, monitor daily progress and by doing so the student can obtain excellent results in a short amount of time.
