Can you hardly distinguish 'che bella' (how beautiful!) from 'che palle' (what a pain in the a**!)? Do you somehow end up with a 'birra alla spina' (draft beer) when you want a 'birra in bottiglia' (bottled beer)? And what is the difference between 'caffé macchiato', 'caffé corretto' and 'cappuccino'?! Still fumbling through introducing yourself to a cute Italian? ...You really need Italian lessons!

 

Teaching English (TEFL)

For native English speakers, one of the easiest ways to find work in Italy is to teach the language. And one of the best ways to make sure your teaching resume gets noticed is to be TEFL (teaching English as a foreign language) certified.
 

Fine Arts & Restoration

Florence is surely one of the best places to find inspiration to create your own works of art and possible masterpieces in the fields of drawing, painting, fresco and sculpture. It's no coincidence that Michelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci, Brunelleschi and Botticelli, Giotto, Donatello all lived or worked here. Or, if you're not an exceptional artist yourself, you can always take a restoration course to help conserve what other legends have left behind!
 

Design & Architecture

From the curves of its Italian furniture, to its sloping archways, to the round wheels of its Vespas, to the angles of its leather bags, Florence has got some beautiful lines! Add your own twist in an industrial design, graphic design, interior design, or architecture course!
 

Decorative Arts

There are so many artisans in Florence, it's almost impossible to choose between them all without our handy list of decorative and craft art institutions, including: jewelry, goldsmithry, engraving, ceramics, leather work, glass work, batik, book art, furniture design, pottery, mosaic, framing, etching, lithography, weaving, printmaking, illustration, and serigraphy.

 

Modern Visual Arts

Are your tastes too modern for studying historic arts? Why not try a course in photography, animation, comics, video & filmmaking, film acting, multimedia?

 

Music & Theater

Italians are performers. Who better to learn the art of entertainment from than the champions of animated emotions, dancing gestures and uninhibited passion?

Not to mention this country is where Opera was born and one in which there is no shortage of gorgeous, centuries-old stages waiting for you to break into their spotlight.
