Here’s a quick update on the situation with classes at our Italian language school in Bologna:
Morning (full-time/intensive) Italian courses
The school is open for in-person teaching and all full-time/intensive classes are now being organised that way. Things are quiet right now, but we expect to be busier from March onwards, then throughout the spring/summer, pandemic permitting!
Face masks are obligatory for students and staff, though ‘green passes’ are not, except for employees aged over 50 years (we have two!)
We measure people’s temperature on entry, maintain appropriate distancing, open windows regularly, clean desks after each class, and so on. Hand gel is provided.
Outside the school, masks are not now obligatory, which is a relief, and a sign that things are improving.
Anyone who previously paid a deposit for an Italian course in Bologna but cancelled or were not permitted to come because of Covid, your deposit is STILL VALID. So why not try again?? The good weather’s just around the corner, too… How to book
Evening (part-time) Italian courses
The Covid precautions detailed above apply equally to evening course students. We currently have two groups and two waiting lists for classes which we’ll open when there’s enough interest.
A1 (beginner/elementary) – we have a waiting list of the (presumably few) people who are interested. If you are, too, contact us.
The A2 (pre-intermediate) started its second three-week module on 07/02/22 and runs on Mondays and Wednesdays at 18.00-21.00 C.E.T. There are seven students in the group, but our classrooms are large enough that we could squeeze a few more in and still maintain appropriate distancing. If anyone would like to take part, contact us.
The B2 (upper-intermediate) class, starts its second module, and the B2-level course book, this evening. It runs on Tuesdays and Thursdays. As there are currently only three students, the class times are 18.00-20.30. though if/when there are four (or more) students that will extend half an hour, so 18.00-21.00 C.E.T. Want to study B2? Contact us.
C1 (advanced) – is another waiting list, for now. Contact us and help make it a reality!
If you’re unsure which course is right for you, please contact us to ask whatever questions you have and/or to arrange a level test.
