In operation since 1984, the Italian Language and Culture Center Torre di Babele is a school specializing in teaching Italian to foreigners, authorized by the Italian Ministry of Education.
The school is located in the central and elegant Art Nouveau neighbourhood near La Sapienza University of Rome, the historical park Villa Torlonia and the main train station Termini. The school’s air conditioned building houses bright, spacious classrooms on two floors and opens onto a large garden where courses are also held, and where students can relax during their breaks and free time.
Courses run year round and are attended by students from all over the world. All courses are taught in small groups, on average 7 or 8 students, with a maximum of 12. This limited class size offers individual attention as well as a friendly and relaxed atmosphere in which to learn the language.
The school offers a rich and interesting extracurricular program with guided tours, short seminars on Art, Architecture, Cinema, Literature, Politics, Italian cooking and wines. During the week-ends excursions to other sites of interest are also offered (Pompeii, Naples, Orvieto, Florence).
Upon request, the school will provide accommodations for students for the duration of their course. Housing is available in private homes, students apartments and hotels.
The school also offers teacher's training courses, au-pair service and a free of charge interlinguistic exchange with Italian native speakers.
