Q: How many students do you have per class?

A: Yes, of course! It will be for sure a motivating experience. Our institute will also assist you on how to continue after the course to increase you level.
Q: Who are LinguaMia's teachers?
A: Our teachers are accurately selected. Our first prerequisite is the status of Italian mother tongue. The second pre-requisite is a graduate degree but not necessarily in Italian literature. We strongly believe that teachers with different cultural background can contribute to create a stimulating environment. The third requisite is related to the ability of each teacher to communicate and interact with foreign students. For this purpose our teachers are selected mainly on the basis of at least one international experience in their cv. Please visit our teachers here
