Dilit Italian School


1. Why should I choose Dilit?

Dilit (Divulgazione Lingua Italiana), founded in 1974, was one of the first language schools in Italy to teach Italian as a Foreign Language and has established itself as one of the most prestigious Italian Language Schools in the country today.

It is an early member of the International House World Organization, now a network of over 150 language schools in more than 50 countries. The quality of the teaching and services provided by the school is guaranteed by its membership of EAQUALS (European Association for Quality Language Services).

Dilit International House is officially authorised by the Italian Ministry of Education to teach Italian language and culture to foreign students. To obtain this recognition the school must comply with strict regulations relating to school premises and facilities, teacher qualifications, teaching quality, administration and welfare.

The school is an Examination centre for the CELI examinations of Perugia University and the CILS examinations of Siena University. Dilit is also well-known and appreciated in Italy and abroad for its Teacher Training Department accredited by the Italian Ministry of Education and for the publication of course books and other language teaching materials.
