Following in his footsteps, Omnilingua's objective is to offer high quality, stimulating Italian language lessons in a warm and friendly environment. The team of motivated teachers are all professionally qualified and have several years of experience teaching Italian to foreign learners. All of them are native Italian speakers and fluent in at least two other languages, including English.
Omnilingua's objective is to ensure that students learn to speak Italian fluently and confidently. The classes are kept to a maximum of 9 students. This enables teachers to give individual attention to each student while providing an environment that encourages open discussion and conversation. Omnilingua also ensures that students obtain a sound understanding of Italian grammar to ensure a strong foundation for the spoken and written language. Omnilingua provides a full immersion experience by exposing students to the Italian language in as many forms as possible. Teaching materials are made up of a variety of media including: newspaper articles, editorial material, magazine articles, literary excerpts, song texts and poetry. Students are also encouraged to contribute their own materials and ideas to the class. Multimedia such as DVDs, videos, CDs, the Internet and television also make up an integral part of the teaching material and methodology. Teachers choose from a range of contemporary and engaging topics to help students gain insight into modern Italian culture, society and lifestyle Omnilingua is constantly researching and updating new and innovative teaching methods for the curriculum to ensure students are receiving the best language education available.
In addition, "Lingua Vissuta" - the Living Language is incorporated into the curriculum. This involves venturing out into the local community, visiting the markets, the library, the shops, the Casino etc. to gather information for various class projects. This gives students the opportunity to practice what they have learned in the classroom in real life situations.
