Venice Language School

  • The language school Venice Language School was founded in Venice, Italy in 1995.
  • Address: Campo Santa Margherita 3116/A, Dorsoduro, 30123 - Venice, Italy (see on map)

Covid-19 related security measures that are taken by Venice Language School

- All students and visitors need to wear a protective mask and often use the hand sanitizers that the school provides at the entrance and in all the classrooms.
- We will thermo-scan everyone at the entrance: people with a body temperature over 37.5 ° will be not allowed to enter the Institute.
- Face masks are not mandatory for outdoor activities.
- Students must make an appointment with the school to take an online level placement test before arrival in Venice.
- Students must also balance their tuition fee or residence fee so as to avoid people gathering in front of the registrar office.
Those who not yet balanced their course or residence fees must do so on the first day of school, one by one and respecting the safety distancing.
- Most of the work will be in the classroom but we plan to carry out the part of the lesson dedicated to conversation outside the school, on the terrace of a cafe or in a beautiful public garden where we will be free to take off our masks.
Maximum number of students per class in Venice: 6 people.

I am working in teachers training in university, basically in didactics. I enjoyed very much to "change the side" and to experience myself as a student. I was impressed, how the teachers handled a range of different students, how they motivated students from different countries really to conversate in italian (not, and it would have been much easier, at least during breaks or in the afternoons, in English or german). I also liked the way of teching and learning, how grammer was combined with literature or contents of daily life. The teachers did a very good work!!
