Obviously, best solution is to directly study Italian in Italy, in one of the main cities of the country such as: Venice, Milan, Turin, Naples, Florence, Bologna and Rome, the capital. Life in this cities is more exciting, with many tourists and several cultural attractions. You can find many museums, monuments, but also pubs, bars and clubs to have fun. Cost of living in a big city could be a negative aspect, but if you rent a room or an apartment located outside of the centre you can save money.

Duration is another important aspect to consider. More learning days mean better Italian, but they mean more expenses too. You have to decide considering if you’re going to study Italian because it is important for a job, or if it’s just an hobby. In the first case your costs will be an investment and you can choose an Italian school with very good and long Italian courses. On the contrary, it’s better to save money and to attend a short language course.
