Languages for senior

The foreign language courses for senior citizens are designed for people who intend to learn a foreign language just for personal gratification, that is, without any professional or academic aspiration, to round off their personal education in a situation where they can share interests and life experiences. We offer English, French and Italian language courses.

Classes are run starting from specific topics and situations. The emphasis is placed on improving comprehension and expression skills, without neglecting vocabulary building, expression learning and the use of grammar. The classroom atmosphere is open-minded and participative.  


  • To establish solid foundations for the language.
  • To consolidate and expand the vocabulary related to the topics covered in class.
  • To gain fluency, accuracy and precision in the oral expression.
  • To improve pronunciation.
