New onsite and online Italian classes starting from the 6th February 2024 – Enrolments now open!
If Italian language and culture have always fascinated you, this is the right moment to start learning Italian and the Istituto Italiano di Cultura in Dublin is the right place for you.
Located in a historical Georgian building in Dublin city centre, we offer onsite and online Italian classes for different levels and a timetable that can suit different learners’ needs.
At the Italian Institute of Culture, you will be able to learn Italian with mother-tongue and qualified teachers in a friendly and welcoming environment. Moreover, you will have the opportunity to enter in contact with several aspects of Italian culture, thanks to the variegated cultural event programme that the IIC presents every month: concerts, cinema, theatre, lectures, seminars, exhibitions and much more. Most of our cultural events are offered for free to the public.
As a student and friend of the IIC, you will have free access to our Library, a very useful resource to deepen your knowledge of Italian! You will also have the opportunity to apply for some short-term scholarships for studying Italian in Italy.
Our courses are structured according to the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, in a way that will allow you to complete a linguistic journey from A to Z in the Italian language.
Our classes will help you develop listening, reading, speaking and writing skills in a structured and gradual manner. Our teachers are Italian graduates with extensive experience and special qualifications in teaching of Italian as a foreign language. Their enthusiasm and ability are known throughout Dublin and beyond.
We are also an authorized centre for CILS exams (Università per Stranieri di Siena) for the certification of Italian language proficiency, and we run exam sessions twice per year.
Our sincere hope is that not only will you enjoy learning Italian but that you will partake in our cultural activities and promotion of Italian culture.
