Skype Courses in Italian
The Skype course in Italian offered by OMNILINGUA is for those who want to learn Italian comfortably from their own home with a flexible timetable and personalised lessons to suit every need.
The courses are given by professional mother tongue teachers with competence in the English language. To follow the course, simply download the free software 'Skype' on your computer and if possible, get yourself a microphone headset for an overall better experience.
You can choose between different types of courses:
This course is based on conversation between student and teacher and it is for those who wish to improve their spoken Italian. Skype gives you a great opportunity to learn and use a language in all kinds of contexts. Each Skype session consists of 60 minutes of conversation on various topics that are chosen to suit the student.
The Italian grammar course consists of reading and listening activities, exercises and conversation on various topics. Skype also allows you to share links and resources on interesting and useful websites so that you can deepen and improve your knowledge. You can also have access to these resources during your independent learning. Each session lasts 1 hour.
The professional course is for those who want to learn a language for professional working needs. Skype allows teaching materials to be integrated with other available resources on the web. Each session lasts 1 hour.
Preparation for CILS exams
The CILS preparation course (the official title that recognises the level of competence in the Italian language for foreigners, in accordance with l’Università per Stranieri di Siena, which is recognised by the state and the Department of Foreign Affairs) is for those who want to prepare for the CILS exams. The CILS is often necessary for the admission of international students to Italian universities. Skype allows us to share links and resources of useful learning materials and appropriate exercises for the exam. Each session lasts 1 hour.
The OMNILINGUA Skype course consists of a minimum of 10 hours.
There is a free trial run of 15 minutes!

Here are some comments of students who had a Skype course at OMNILINGUA:
"I like the convenience of Skype lessons because you can fit them around your schedule. Private lessons are excellent because you can work at your own pace and ask any questions that you have. My teacher, Chiara, is very nice and patient and willing to translate anything that I don't understand. I would recommend Skype lessons as a good way to study Italian. The only drawback is occasionally Skype loses the connection between you and that can be frustrating, but otherwise it's great!" Tina Rodgers
"I am satisfied with the Skype lessons I get from Chiara. In the spring of 2014 I did a course of three weeks at the school in Sanremo and for now I am keeping up and improving the Italian language by Skype. I can recommend this to everyone." Ronald van Duijvenboden
