Looking for Italian language schools in Italy?
Choose Madrelingua! Situated in a historic building in a typical porticoed street right in the centre of Bologna, it is 200 metres from Via Indipendenza, and less than five minutes walk from Piazza Maggiore. That’s us on the first floor – you can see our logo in the window!
The school reception is open all day. Reception staff can give information about our Italian classes and Italian school social program, help you with accommodation issues, and generally support you during your stay in Bologna.
We have 10 classrooms. Each room has space for up to 10 students, and is equipped with audio, TV, DVD, and dictionaries in Italian so you can check unknown words.
The library & study centre
This is where you will find the “afternoon tutor”, who will talk to you in Italian or help you with your homework or study problems. It’s a spacious, light room where you can study when you are not in class. There is a selection of grammar books and bi-lingual dictionaries (i.e. Russian-Italian, English-Italian, Japanese-Italian) for you to use, and plenty of room to sit and study or read a magazine.
Sometimes we use the room for social events, such as the wine-tasting, or occasionally as a classroom. If the library is occupied, you can do your self-study in the multimedia classroom instead!
The library is also equipped with computers offering free internet access. There’s also free WiFi throughout the building, so you can use your smart phone or i-pad to stay in touch wherever you are in the school. Just ask at reception for the password.
Other facilities for you to enjoy
There’s a great selection of DVDs and videos in Italian (and in English!). We have TVs with video/DVD in every classroom, as well as in the Library/Study Centre, so if you want to relax and improve your listening skills at the same time, borrow a DVD or a video. There’s also a selection of magazines, in Italian and English.
