Online Italian Courses & Homestay Program

The Italian Virtual School is an Italian language School based in Torino.

My friend Silvia, who runs things, is absolutely wonderful at what she does and, if you choose the homestay option, the experience of being part of an Italian family and finding out what life in Italy is really like is something you'll treasure forever.It is something the average tourist to Italy misses out on entirely.

I'll let Silvia tell you more...

We provide Online Italian Courses for non-native Italian speakers and, if you are visiting the city of Turin, the opportunity of taking Homestay Italian Courses at the Teacher’s house and cooking classes too.

Online Italian Courses

The Online Italian Courses are in Individual and Small Group format.  Group Classes are not larger than 3 students per class.

Each Class lasts 1 hour and in case of Small Group Classes you will have the opportunity of choosing 1 hour and half classes, that is what we recommend in case of Group Courses.

At the beginning of a new Course you can take a 45 minutes FREE Trial Class that will let you understand how the Online Classes work. The Trial Class is also a way to get to know each other and to clearly evaluate your level. Before the Trial Class you will take our Online Placement Test.

We provide Standard Courses, based on your level and focused on getting you to the subsequent one, Conversation Courses, as well as Italian Courses based on the Italian Cinema. The Courses start from beginner level all the way through to advanced.
