Courses for School Groups

The best way for your students to live a beautiful experience in Florence and improve their Italian language

For many years the Istituto Il David has been organizing Italian language and culture courses for school groups with high school students between 14 and 19 years old.

The educational program, established over years of experience with school groups, is flexible and customizable according to the sending school, the level of the students and the demands of the teacher. Classroom lessons are focused on conversation and have as main objective the improvement of the spoken language. The teachers teach various, interactive, interesting and fun lessons, which stimulate students to talk.

With the experience gained in over 20 years with school groups, the Istituto Il David guarantees excellent quality/price ratio, professionalism and flexibility, a pleasant and profitable stay, dynamic and fun lessons, kindness, families’ availability and safety, various and interesting activities, ongoing assistance to students, collaboration with teachers with daily review of the program, and control of the students’ progresses and behavior in the classroom and at home.

Florence is the ideal city for young students. It's a city full of history, art, culture, monuments, local events, which ensures that students are always busy with visit to cultural sites and famous monuments, or having fun with friends. It's also a medium-sized city, where student life takes place in the center between the school and the accommodations, ensuring safety and comfort.

Our 1-week package (7 days/6 nights) includes:

  • Italian language course of 4 hours per day (hours 9:00-13:00) for 5 days (20 total hours).
  • Accommodation for students: double or triple rooms with Italian families in the center of Florence (5-20 minutes walk from the school) with half board (breakfast and dinner).
  • Accommodation for teachers: single or double rooms in 2, 3 or 4 stars hotels near the school.
  • afternoon activities: walking tours in the center, Italian movies at school, Italian cooking lessons, music, art, and many others to choose from.
  • Visits to museums, churches and historic buildings.
  • Excursions to parks, Medici villas, important cultural and landscape sites.

My students have partecipated in the one-week program which the foud excellent for the conversation development.
The school organized a variety of topics and activities which the student enjoyed very much.
They have learned much and in a fun way that reinforced what the knew already, introduced new things and extended them to build confidence in new situation.
The school has been very flexible in acconmodating our needs, including extra activities if we wanted and providing excellent suggestion for places to visit and the best restaurants to try.
It has been a most rewarding experience!
As my students did not do the family experience, I cannot comment except to say that for students a bit older than mine, it would be a wonderful way to immerse in the culture and extedn knowledge of the italian language.
The combination of daily classes and free time to explore Florence as a group has worked very well for us.
I would like to thank Carlo and Assunta for their welcome and warmth to us as a visiting group.

Anche quest'anno la settimana a Firenze è andata veramente bene! Per ciò che riguarda l'organizzazione di tutto il viaggio, devo proprio ammettere che la collaborazione con voi, in particolare la vostra grande professionalità e il Vs impeccabile lavoro, fanno sì che l'attività da me svolta, funzioni veramente bene.
I ragazzi erano entusiasti, si sono trovati tutti molto bene presso le famiglie, hanno assaporato le specialità italiane ed erano anche molto contenti delle lezioni a scuola. Le insegnanti piacciono molto e sono davvero in gamba. Una ragazza mi ha persino detto che non le sembrava neanche di essere a lezione, talmente piacevoli e divertenti erano le lezioni. Dato che gli allievi hanno 4 ore al giorno, mi sembra ottimo che si alternino sempre due insegnanti.
La Vs serietà e professionalità, unite a un'atmosfera di grande accoglienza, permettono ai ns allievi di sentirsi a proprio agio e di frequentare volentieri le Vs lezioni.
Per ciò che concerne le visite, giro d'orientamento a Firenze (Anna è bravissima), la visita alla fattoria è piaciuta molto, anche le visite museali sono andate veramente bene. Infine pure la visita aziendale è stata interessante.
Come anche l'anno scorso la sistemazione da Laura è stata perfetta. Praticamente è come stare a casa!
In conclusione devo proprio sottolineare che la collaborazione con Voi, è un vero piacere!
AugurandoVi un buon anno lavorativo, Vi saluto cordialmente!

Per quanto riguarda la nostra settimana a Firenze siamo come sempre stracontenti: tutto ha funzionato benissimo e gli studenti sono ritornati pieni di bei ricordi e di impressioni stupende della scuola, di tutti voi, delle famiglie ospitanti e di una città bellissima.
Domani devono consegnare i loro lavori scritti e mi sa che qualcuno ci darà un lavoro scritto sul computer e così ve ne posso anche spedire uno o due esemplari per avere un po' un feedback da parte degli studenti.
un caro saluto e tanti baci, oggi c´è il sole!!!
