Who says you can’t have it all?
Learn Italian on your own time at Kappa Language School!
Rome – and Italy in general – is one of the few places left in Europe where English isn’t a sure thing. To get around like a local, to really know Rome, a working knowledge of Italian is essential. Most recent arrivals to the bel paese assume that learning a second language is similar to osmosis, that just being in Italy and drinking a daily cappuccino will magically lead to fluency. Magari! The best way to tackle a language is in the classroom, where qualified instructors skillfully guide you through Italian’s maze.
Found in the heart of the Monti neighborhood, Kappa Language School is one of the city’s top Italian language-learning institutes. The school’s young and energetic staff (each instructor boasts a Siena university DITALS Certificate for teaching Italian as a foreign Language) are experts in imparting Italian in a lively, dynamic manner – forget stuffy textbooks and rote memorization. A slew of Italian language courses specifically tailored to the needs of each student, whether beginner or advanced, intensive courses or private tutoring, are offered; and the school also serves as a PLIDA Certification Center, where both preparatory lessons for the PLIDA and CELI exams are held as well as the exams themselves. Students can also acquire the A2 Certificate via Kappa.
Above all, the school embodies that teaching is an act of love: that while it requires preparation, patience, and dedication, sharing Italian ultimately enriches the student, and opens up the city and its people, culture, and traditions to them.
Kappa’s location in Monti is also worth mentioning. Packed with artisan boutiques, authentic restaurants, and plenty of cool bars, Monti is one of the city’s hippest neighborhoods. It’s also centrally located (Metro B Cavour) and a short walk from the Colosseum. The school smartly takes advantage of its real estate, and plans plenty of aperitivi in the area. Kappa also provides guided tours, dinners, cooking classes, picnics and other additional activities for students that invite them to put their Italian language skills to the test beyond the classroom and have fun while they’re at it.
