Italian Language Courses in Italy – Rome

Language courses in Rome - La mia Roma, Verbalisti

Our long experience of working with students of all ages and coming from every corner of the world tells us that one of the main reasons for our students to enroll in language courses in Italy is to experience various aspects of that nation’s amazing culture (art, architecture, fashion, gastronomy, cinema, etc.). Verbalists’ program La mia ROMA is ideal for those who want to experience Italian life and culture but whose main objective is to improve their Italian. This program is both fun and educational!
