ELLCI Ente Lombardo Lingua e Cultura Italiana, Milan

Description: ELLCI's aim is to promote knowledge of Italian language and culture through many types of language courses and several other complementary social and recreational activities. The teaching methodology facilitates learning through direct communication between teacher and student, always keeping in mind their age, cultural background, and aims. The target of the Italian courses is to gradually form the linguistic skills of comprehension, expression, reading and writing, while going deeply into the language's historical and artistic aspects through visits to places in the city of Milan together with the teachers. The language is taught using traditional and original didactic materials, and through activities like games, role-playing, discussions, and instruments such as songs and videos.
