School & Philosophy
Scuola Tricolore-Centro Studi Italiani is a young school. The school, its philosophy and method were founded based on our personal experiences in Germany, Italy, Spain, Great Britain and the Netherlands. Before the opening the entire learning process was analyzed, in order to create our teaching method based both on the communication model, typical of many schools, and on Edutainment. A method to learn Italian through interaction and participation with pleasure and fun. In this way learning the Italian language becomes so pleasant that you will not even realize you are studying!
From 2019 the school is part of the Centro Studi Italiani group, with other schools in Urbania and Milan.
Our fundamental criterion when we teach is to put the student at the center of our attention. Our teaching methods are carefully selected by adapting them, on a case-by-case basis, to our needs and our educational objectives. The philosophy is to create a study center in a pleasant and enjoyable environment. Therefore our teaching method, as well as the selection of teachers, is aimed at emphasizing and supporting this philosophy. You will be pleasantly surprised!
The school is located in Genoa, near the Medieval Historical Center. Just a few steps from the seafront, our school occupies a beautifully restored historic building. It has 5 new classrooms and a separate relaxation room where you can drink coffee, read a newspaper, borrow a book from our extensive library or chat with classmates. The atmosphere of the school is open, friendly and familiar.
