There are eight Italian levels, from Real Beginners to Advanced. The courses are for students of eighteen years of age and above.

For levels from Elementary upwards an entry test is necessary to assess the level of the student and to place the student in the correct class at the appropriate level.

Class numbers range from a minimum of three to a maximum of 12 students. The length of each lesson varies from three lessons per day to four lessons per day during which the student will be able to explore different aspects of the language including: speaking, reading, writing and listening.
