Learn Italian in Siena
Siena is home to one of the oldest Universities in Europe, a beautifully compact, medieval city.
The city appeals to adult and students alike, all looking to study Italian whilst unwinding and enjoying the slower pace of life offered. The historic heart of Siena fans out from the 14th century, Piazza del Campo into winding medieval lanes best suited for walkers (or horses in past centuries), not the hectic transport of the 21st century. Accommodation can be arranged within the city walls, though most hosts live outside in the modern residential area of Siena.

The help and assistance I received from CESA Languages staff, was excellent. The CESA website and information pack gave me a good idea of what to expect.
I felt all expectations were met; the teaching material handed out was excellent, the classrooms were of a good size, well lit, comfortable and nicely decorated. For me the lessons worked well…

About the School

The Italian language school is located in the heart of the city. Established in 1991. Situated on the second floor of a typical Sienese palazzo, it offers a quiet working environment, yet is only 3 minutes by foot from the Piazzo del Campo. Students have easy access to all the wonders of this amazing city and the school is located in the heart of the historic city. With over 27 years of teaching experience, and between 25/60 students each month the college in Siena offers a relaxed language learning environment for ALL linguistic levels in the heart of everything.
After classes the terrace of the school provides a scenic meeting place for the students. For studies outside of class, a large collection of teaching materials, literature, magazines, CDs and videos are at their disposal. There are 8+ classrooms for group courses and private tuition use and the staff are always on hand should you have any questions once on your course. The Italian Language School requires all their teachers to have university degrees and extensive experience teaching Italian as a Foreign Language.
The college offers a wide range of Italian language courses including general language courses to meet both short and longer term study needs, private tuition, exam preparation courses & an Over 50s Course. The Italian language school also offers students in Siena a chance to enjoy some authentic Italian cookery classes (find out how the Italians really make good pasta), an Italian wine tasting course (very sociable, and informative whilst still fun) and an Italian History of Art Appreciation course, all of which beautifully complement the Italian language courses on offer. Whether you have just a fortnight or several months to dedicate to your studies, Siena has plenty to offer.
