The school runs a wide range of courses including: General English, Conversation classes, Cambridge exam preparation, IELTS exam preparation, Business English and English for Special Purposes. We are an official Cambridge exam centre and, in December, 2017 we became an official IELTS off-site test venue in collaboration with IH Rome, Via Manzoni.
