About

The NRCSA Center in Siena was founded in 1979, and since that time it has been welcoming students from a many nationalities and all ages to study language, art, and Italian culture. The Center located in the city center of this charming medieval city.

All teachers are native Italian speakers, hold university degrees, and are specially trained to teach Italian to non-native speakers. Needless to say all of the teachers are very highly qualified. All teachers also attend a teacher-training course organized by the Director of Studies before teaching there first day of teaching. Additionally, each teacher must specialize in an area of Italian Culture, such as: History of Art, Literature, Theatre or Music.

The Center is also recognized by the European Consortium as an examination center for the PLIDA (Progetto Lingua Italiana Dante Alighieri) exam at various levels of knowledge.

For those who wish to make the most of their time we recommend staying with an Italian family. We can book a single or double rooms with half board (breakfast and dinner) in one of our carefully selected families. This is an excellent opportunity to practice your Italian on a daily basis and sample the delights of Italian home cookery! Most families live just outside the city walls rather than within the city center and an average bus ride is about 10-20 minutes. The type of family can vary between a couple with children to a widow or a single women.

The shared apartment lodging option allows for the greatest amount of freedom. Rooms in shared student flats have shared bathroom and kitchen facilities. The number of rooms per flat varies from 1 to 7. All bedding is provided by the landlord.

For those who wish to have a little independence, we can book a mini-apartment with cooking facilities and private bathroom in residences just outside the centre. Facilities include telephone, garden and parking place.
