The area
Address
Neighbourhood: San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.

I really enjoyed Diego's lessons. He was a great teacher and used some brilliant techniques to help me remember italian words. I would not hesitate to recommend him and I will definitely be booking some more lessons in the future.

Truly an outstanding experience working with Diego and Lucia at Venice Italian School. Their method gets the job done better than other language shools I have used because it is aimed at getting you talking quickly using simple but effective building blocks. An innovative but simple approach that is best of breed!

I am a senior Italian American who wants very much to become fluent in Italian. I have been to other schools in the U.S. and in Italy (Bologna), but Venice Italian School is by far the best. They assess your skill level (if you have any) and develop a program to address your specific needs and develop your Italian language skills. They are especially helpful with learning to speak Italian, not just read or write it. In class you actually engage in conversations that enable you to learn to have a normal, every day conversation. During the pandemic shutdown, I did weekly tutoring sessions via Zoom which enabled me to not just maintain but advance my conversational Italian. I have been to the school three times, each time for a week or more, and have experienced small group classes and one-on- one tutoring at the school. I cannot recommend this school more highly. And the classes are very reasonably priced. If you really want to learn to speak Italian, this is the place for you. And it's in Venice!!!

Dear Diego and Lucia -

Just a quick note to say thank you for such a wonderful learning experience! You told me, Diego, that I would learn the foundations for my Italian studies and that I’d have fun while doing it. You really delivered on that promise - I have a MUCH better understanding of the language, some new confidence and an excitement to keep learning. Lucia, I enjoyed our classes so much - thank you!

Yesterday, I visited the Libreria Acqua Alta and I purchased Il Piccolo Principe in Italian which I will read with pleasure! It will go next to my French copy and it will no doubt inspire me to keep up with my studies.

Thank you again and until next time!

Fondly,
Craig

I have been to the Italian Language School in Venice twice, once for 2 weeks in 2016 and again for a week in 2019. I've attended schools in the U.S., listened to tapes/CDs, and spent 2 weeks at an Italian language school in Bologna. The Italian Language School in Venice is simply the best. The director, Diego, has designed an exemplary program for small groups and individual tutoring. I've done both and in each instance improved my Italian language skills exponentially. I wanted to improve my conversational Italian, and I was able to do that after each of my sessions at the school. It is family run, casual yet structured, with skilled instructors. I will keep going back (and plan to in April 2021). If you want to improve/learn Italian, this is the best school you could choose. And, bonus: it's in Venice!! It gives you an excuse for an extended stay in what I think is the most beautiful city in the world.

Had another great week at the Venice Italian school in October. It is a family run school where you are always made welcome and where all the teachers are very competent and enthusiastic. Whether you are a beginner or want more advanced conversation, there is a course for you. Highly recommended.

It’s about 5 years since I first met Diego and his sister Lucia, when I was staying in Venice for a long vacation, and I’m so happy I found their school.
At that time I’d studied Italian on and off in my home city, but was stuck on a middle intermediate level.
Both Diego and Lucia are excellent intuitive teachers. The group lessons don’t follow a struct textbook curriculum, rather they are targeted to the needs of the group and creative in approach.
My language and comprehension skills have improved greatly from my experiences in Italy and courses I take at home, but I continue to go back to Venice and to go back to the Venice Italian School to take some individual lessons with Diego.
Usually I know what I’d like to concentrate on, but sometimes Diego just listens to me talking at the beginning of our lessons and suggests something additional.
This year and last, the goal was to, what Diego calls, ‘italianizzare’ my speaking language, and it’s been wonderfully helpful.
If you’re looking for that personal touch in studying Italian on whatever level, this school is one you should look into.

I spent almost all of September at Venice Italian School. I couldn't have been in a better place. Clever, thoughtful and flexible teachers. Well structured small groups. Strong emphasis on conversation, with a focus on the grammar which had featured in the course of the day. Diego, Lucia and their team (a number of Lauras!) can see what is working well (or not) for the group and make frequent adjustments to be sure that everyone has a good experience. Having been to Venice Italian School and had such a good experience, I will not be going anywhere else - I just need to find the time to go back.

I have just spent 4 weeks studying Italian at the Venice Italian School and cannot express too strongly how much I enjoyed the experience. Diego and his team are dedicated professionals who really helped me to gain confidence speaking Italian and were always ready to put in extra effort to make sure I made progress with the language. The classes are organised with a maximum of 6 students, so the atmosphere is very relaxed and everyone is given ample opportunity to participate. The school also offers conversation over coffee (or aperol spritz!) after school hours for those who want to attend, as well as informative walking tours of the city. The Venice Italian School is a small, friendly school which I would recommend to anyone looking to practice and improve their Italian in the wonderful surroundings of Venice

This small school started by Diego and Laura, brother and sister, works with young enthousiast qualified teachers. The groups are small and the atmosphere is friendly. All levels are available. Because they are small they can adapt to every special wish. I went to class already several times, learned a lot also about venetian life
and think there is no better place to study. I strongly recommend them.
