Koiné – Italian Language Centre is located in Piazza San Giovanni in Laterano n. 48, one of the most vibrant and beautiful areas in the center of Rome, just 300mt from the Colosseum. We are on the corner of Via Merulana and Piazza San Giovanni in Laterano, behind Piazza Vittorio, one of the most multicultural areas of Rome, characterized by a carefree and colorful context.
Surrounded by shops, bars and a vibrant nightlife, the school is easily accessible by bus, tram and metro.
The School is only 10 minutes walking from Termini Station and close to the San Giovanni Metro stop and Metro Manzoni stop , and accessible by many buses.
The strategic location of our school allows our students to not only live fully the historical center of the Eternal City, but also to get in close contact with the hectic pace and the real local life. The unique character of this area attracts, every day, artists, tourists, foreigners and thousands of travelers.
Despite being in the heart of the city, San Giovanni is surrounded by greenery, with a big lawn in front of the basilica and the park along the Aurelian walls that give this part of the city a special and precious light!
The Italian Language School in Rome Koiné provides Italian Courses for Foreigners and other language courses and Translation Service. We provides, also, extra activities. One of them it’s our weekly social meeting, where foreigners and Italian people can know each other and practice the language they are interested in, tours of Rome, cineforum and italian cooking events.
Lessons are based on dynamic teaching methods and a stimulating language programme that incorporates student’s interests and various aspects of italian life.
Teaching methods: communicative and humanistic-affective approach to allow our students to learn a foreign language disheartening emotional filters or any fear they naturally feel.
