Why should I study at CIS?

There is no better way to let our students tell you why you should study at the Centre of Italian Studies.

  • The best aspect was learning with such a great group of people and a wonderful teacher. A most enjoyable evening every time.
    — Jason, Level 3
  • The teachers are engaging and speak only Italian in classroom. Lot's of different topics are covered.
    — Alessia, children courses
  • It was always fun and that makes the course easier to learn. Also our teacher is extremely patient and encouraging which makes the speaking part of the lesson less intimidating.
