Why choose Spires’ online Italian tutoring?

Why study Italian?

Italian is one of the most popular languages in Europe and the world. It is spoken by well over 100 million people. There are many reasons why you should learn Italian. First of all, Italy is “the cradle of Western Civilization”. Italians have contributed so much to the world in terms of science, art, architecture, literature, music, and food. In addition, the country is so rich in history – being the centre of one of the most important empires the world has known. The Renaissance period was also one of the most glorious times that changed the development of our civilization. If you want to learn about history, art and politics, then Italian is the right language for you.

What university degrees is Italian useful for?

If you learned Italian in high school and want to learn more about this beautiful language, then you can pursue a bachelor’s degree in Italian Studies. Later, you can pursue a master’s degree or doctorate, or combine it with a business-related or technical degree.

Italian is also very useful for students who want to study in one of Italy’s many excellent universities. Many international students in Italy pursue degrees in the arts, history, fashion, or related fields.

Why your online Italian teacher will suggest you should pick Italy as your study abroad destination:

– Plenty of top universities with an excellent international environment

Italy is a popular global study location not only due to its culture but also because the country has many leading public and private universities.

The University of Bologna is considered the oldest university in Europe. In addition, Bologna is on the list of top European cities that welcome the largest number of Erasmus students.

There are lots of other quality public universities offered in Italy, see the list above.

– Italy is a budget-friendly location for students.

Italy is among the most budget-friendly nations in Europe where you can study abroad, both in terms of tuition charges and living costs.

Average tuition for all degree levels: 850 to 1,000 EUR/year

Typical living expenses: 700 to 1,000 EUR/month for housing, food, transport, and recreation

Most expensive cities: Rome, Milan, and Bologna

– Easy to use public transport system

Italy allows you to ‘jump’ on a bus or train for just a few Euros to leave foggy Milano or chaotic Bologna to get to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Almost every big city is connected to European and non-European destinations with 87 airports. You can travel quickly by train; all the larger Italian cities are interconnected. It makes life easier for many students who do not like travelling by car or by aeroplane.

A country loaded with marvels

While you’re enjoying the international student lifestyle in Italy, it would be a shame not to take advantage of the opportunity of living near 51 UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Imagine first-hand how the gladiators fought in the Colosseum, take a photo holding up the Leaning Tower of Pisa, get lost on the streets and canals of Venice, and explore Vatican City. Discover a little Italian history and geography and visit Pompeii or Mount Vesuvius.
No pineapple on your pizza!
You can only get real pizza. It is simple, delicious, and do not expect to find pineapple on it!
As for pasta, you can enjoy it in all sizes and shapes, cavatelli, ravioli, orecchiette, tagliatelle – and a myriad of other shapes and sizes. Most restaurants will serve homemade pasta, and as for the sauces…your student flat spag-bog special will never be the same again!
Italians take fantastic pride in their coffee, and it will keep you going through all your studies, at any hour of the day or night.
Late nights are given in Italy.
Just like other countries in the southern part of Europe, life in Italy starts and ends late in the evening. At 8 p.m., the streets are full of life, and sometimes this is the time when life gets going!
The outrageous graduation routine
In Italy, graduate students need to go through an extremely amusing routine. After the main ceremony, students dress up in wacky outfits (usually a huge diaper, a hula skirt, or a funny hat), sit on a bench, and wait for their peers and family to clutter them with either ketchup, mustard, eggs, or other foods. Students also spend time making posters with caricatures of their friends.
Be surrounded by the arts, architecture, and fashion
Students who chose Italy to study a degree in fields like art, architecture, or fashion will not be disappointed. These iconic features of Italian culture will definitely appeal to you even if you study anything else in Italy.
As the country that gave birth to Renaissance art, anywhere you go in Italy you’ll see architecture that has stood the test of time, and as for fashion, what else is there to say? The Italians are renowned for their classy and sharp dress, and this can be attributed to many famous fashion brands and houses.
Terrific location to meet your soulmate
There are few places on earth that are as romantic as Italy. After all, Shakespeare’s most well-known work ‘Romeo and Juliet’ talks about a love story that happened in Verona, Italy. Even putting aside the terrible part, Italy seems to be a good place to discover your true ‘amore’. And let’s not forget how romantic the Italian language sounds!
Italy offers a variety of wonderful and lovely locations, so if you don’t find your soul mate, you will certainly fall in love with the country.

How does Italian help you get a promotion?

Many companies have international offices, which means they need someone who is not only fluent in English but also proficient in other popular languages like Italian. This means that your employer will greatly appreciate your knowledge of this language. Learning Italian will do wonders for your professional development.

Practising this language regularly will also improve your knowledge of other cultures. This is an invaluable asset to any employer looking for employees with a global outlook. Your chances of getting promoted are greater if you are able to communicate with international clients.

How expert Online Italian Tutoring can help you?

Teachers will take the time to assess your starting point and then develop a personalised syllabus to work towards your objectives. Online classes will focus on your areas of weakness and on developing the confidence you need to achieve your goals. Lessons will also push students in areas they are already comfortable in, encouraging constant improvement and developing positive learning habits.
