"Not what I expected"

Amanda Katherine Lambert-Pennington, opiskelija _ maasta USA

I did a week of intensive Italian at Centro Didattico Athena. The experience was not what I expected. I took an entrance exam geared toward the intermediate level. From the exam results I clearly had some grammatical deficiencies, which I hoped I would get to work on during the class. Additionally, I wanted to have the opportunity to practice speaking - which was my main reason for wanting to do this class. The facilities were good, it was easy to get to by Metro from the place I was staying (I was staying with a friend who lives in Catania). Unfortunately, the course was not what I expected.

I was in a class with one other person, who was quite advance in her level of Italian. Thus, we were a bit mismatched in terms of skill level. Initially this was ok because we had a teacher that was very sensitive to our different skill levels and we were working on grammar that I had just finished studying in my class at home, which was a nice review. This teacher was really good at meeting me where I was at and helping me feel comfortable speaking, even if I made mistakes. She was encouraging and I was feeling more confident in my speaking ability as a result. However, this dynamic changed dramatically with the second teacher. We studied passato remoto for 3 days and the mode of instruction was not very didactic. We did hours of grammar worksheets and very little conversation.

When we did speak, she was not very helpful and made me feel uncomfortable when I made mistakes. I felt like she was teaching only to the other student and at more advanced level than was appropriate for me. She made no attempts to adjust the material or style. Even the other student was frustrated. I left the class feeling a bit traumatized and less confident in speaking that when I started.

"Extraordinarily high quality of teaching"

Leonard L. Cavise

I had the benefit of two very talented and dedicated teachers of Italian. With my low level of proficiency, they were very patient and forgiving. The administration was very friendly and accommodating. This is a very serious school, not something for tourists looking for something to do. The three hour classes are thorough, comprehensive and well-planned. The teachers have a very good feel for what the mistakes of English-speakers are likely to be. They insist on grammatical correctness, good listening skills, and, finally, extensive practice in conversation. I would recommend this school (and Catania, for that matter!) to anyone sincerely interested in the Italian language and culture.

"Language Courses on an individual level and"

Cem Güler

I took an intensive language course at Centro Didattico Athena for one month. I couldn't speak any Italian at the beginning but learned very fast because classes were very small and the teachers super experienced and nice.

The balance between grammar lessons and cultural lessons and activities was perfect for me: There were screenings of Italian short films, city tours, museums... but also classic grammar lesons (but in a nice way). In my point of view the key method of the teachers was talking (they encourage you a lot) and that's also how I learned best.

Koulun sijainti

The school is located in a historical mansion right in the heart of Catania, amid his picturesque baroque palaces and his colorful alleys full of life and charm, and just a few steps from the Ionian sea. Studying Italian while fully immersing yourself in the unique atmosphere of Athena will provide you with a closer look at the fascinating world that revolves around Italy, his history and heritage, his art and his tasteful cuisine.

The province of Catania offers a scenario that has attracted tourists and travelers for centuries. Here, the fire of Mount Etna, the crystal water of the Ionian coast, and the light of our ever-shining sun mingle and intertwine to give the visitor a unique spectacle.

Our Italian courses are available all year round. Come to Athena during wintertime, Catania is warm and lovely in this period and you’d love to sip an original hot cappuccino during your daily class routine. Otherwise, you can participate in our summer classes, enjoying the sun and the sea breeze in our lovely terrace during lesson breaks, while tasting a real Sicilian lemon granita.
