Italian Language Course
Are you interested in Italian courses? At Language Institute Regina Coeli, you learn the Italian language in a way which best suits you and your current abilities. The customised programme is fully tailored to your ambitions, skills and abilities. You can, of course, work on your business Italian with us as well.
Learn Italian language
An Italian language course at Regina Coeli is an individual programme which the trainers fine-tune to your goals, skills and preferences, both prior to and during the training. At Regina Coeli, you learn Italian efficiently and quickly.
No one participant has the exact same training programme at Regina Coeli. Someone moving to Italy has different needs than someone who needs to stay in touch with Italian suppliers or give sales pitches in Italy. At your intake appointment, we look at what you would like to do and determine you current skills in Italian. On the basis of this information, we design a tailor-made Italian language course for you.
Italian is the key to opening doors in the Italian business world
Italy is an important trading partner for many countries. Italian is, among other things, the language of art, design, fashion and music. A solid foundation in Italian helps you foster and maintain deeper, more effective relationships with your Italian partners.
If you wish to learn Italian for business purposes, we will arrange a personal intake to discuss the situations you need the language in and what, specifically, you need to be able to do. Lawyers require different vocabulary and skills than sales managers, for example. We can also do role plays during your training so you can practice the skills you have been learning.
During your Italian course at Language Institute Regina Coeli, you have four lessons each day from Italians who guide you in learning the Italian language. One of them might explain the grammar to you in the morning, while in the afternoon you have a conversation lesson with another, for example. Because you spend so much time with the trainers, you get to better know the nature and culture of Italians and learn Italian in an effective way.
Options for Italian courses at Regina Coeli
At your personal intake interview, you will determine together with an experienced language trainer what your ideal Italian language course looks like. The following options are possible, also in combination with each other:
Moreover, you can learn Italian with a group of colleagues in Italian group training or in-company Italian training. Our language institute would also be happy to arrange Italian language training for your family if you, your partner and children are leaving shortly for Italy. If you are interested, just request a proposal.
Introduction programme: learn Italian language for beginners
Regina Coeli offers you the opportunity to follow a preparation programme prior to the intensive personal Italian courses. In this, you will become familiar with both the Italian language and the Regina Coeli Method. The programme consists of two hours of private lessons and one hour in the multimedia lab at our institute in Vught.
In the first lesson hour, you will study two important aspects of Italian grammar, namely the conjugation of nouns (called ‘concordanza’) and the use of the verbs ‘essere’ (to be) and ‘avere’ (to have). Experience has taught us that beginners often struggle with mastering these subjects, and that extra time is therefore necessary to fully grasp them.
The Regina Coeli Method is very pragmatic and teaches you to immediately apply the language you are learning. Based on the theme ‘fare conoscenza’ (to get acquainted with), in the second lesson hour you will put to use what you have learnt in the first hour’s grammar lesson. You will write a text with your trainer in which you use terms that are often part of your passive knowledge, but which as a beginner you do not yet know how to use actively.
In the third and final hour, the trainer will bring you to the multimedia lab, so you can get used to working with Language Institute Regina Coeli’s multimedia programme. You will independently do a series of exercises related to the lesson materials from the first and second private lesson hours. After that and with assistance from My Regina Coeli – your personal web page – , you can do listening and speaking exercises to prepare for your upcoming intensive training programme.
The basic knowledge gleaned in the introduction programme prepares you for acquiring the many structures of the Italian language more easily during your intensive language course.

A language course at Regina Coeli is a perfect way to take your language to the next level in a short period of time. The intensive one-to-one sessions with the trainers delivered enormously good results. That, combined with the overall attention to detail, makes Regina Coeli more than worth the effort.

What I had already heard was confirmed by this week. A professional institute with expert and enthusiastic trainers. Learned a great deal in one week, in a superb atmosphere and surroundings!

I came to Regina Coeli to learn Italian and it is incredible how much I learnt in only one week! It is intense, it is individual and finally it is also fun! It is for sure that I will come back!
Ms A. van der Hulst, Director, Brandy & Melville
With some basic knowledge in hand, I followed a week-long intensive course in Italian at Regina Coeli. The trainers (all true Italians!) taught me an incredible amount in one week. They not only shed light on the language, but the culture as well. It is fantastic to be able to better use a language after only one week. Thanks to the lessons (all individual and personalised), I learned exactly what I was hoping to learn. Despite the fact that the course is quite intensive, I really enjoyed myself thanks to the friendly, fun trainers. Highly recommended!
The Italian courses are delivered by a team of trainers from the Italian-speaking world. When you follow lessons at Language Institute Regina Coeli, your training will be with a number of them.
A few trainers share their thoughts on language training at Language Institute Regina Coeli:
Silvana Parasiliti Rantone
"I think it is fantastic working for Regina Coeli and teaching people the most beautiful language in the world! We teach course members not only the structure and the theory of the language, but also the culture which goes along with it: ‘la dolce vita’. Every week I meet exceptionally motivated and enthusiastic course members and look forward to seeing how satisfied they are with the results and how much they can learn in only one or two weeks.
Our course members often have specific learning goals and therefore need the professional terminology to match: in those cases we write a lesson plan for them. I really enjoy preparing and working with lesson plans because by doing so we always find the right balance between the social aspects of language and the unique terminology of the course member. When we work this way, we see that the course members become more aware and self-assured in the Italian language and culture."
"The Italian language is not as difficult as many people think. After only two or three days with us, a course member can have a simple conversation in Italian. Course members learn fastest when they are open to the language and our corrections, therefore I always pay a lot of attention to creating the right atmosphere in the lessons. Additionally it helps that we offer truly custom-made solutions by fully adapting the content of the lessons to the course member. In this way we teach someone language which he can immediately put to use.
At Regina Coeli course members receive a team of language trainers. I give, for example, mainly conversation lessons, and during my lessons I make sure that the grammar the course member has just learnt from my colleague is being correctly applied. Just like making a mosaic, every language trainer contributes a piece to a beautiful creation: the mosaic of the Italian language."
