Why choose Catania? Food, Etna, Sea and so much fun!

From it's inception the Italian Language Centre- Federico II has become the leading language school for those who want to learn Italian in Sicily.

We offer modern and engaging Italian language classes. Our friendly team will also help you to discover the 'authentic Catania' that only the locals know. You will be guided through the most important attractions, museums and events organised by the city by a member of our lovely staff. When you study at our school, you will learn the Italian language and experience the unique culture of Catania, Sicilia.

Why choose Catania?

Catania is a small metropolis rich in history with great cultural heritage that offers many activities. The city is also characterized by it's unique and delicious food such as arancini, cassata and cannoli.

Catania is the perfect place for those who want to live in harmony between the sea and the mountains. From our ever-changing coastline to the beauty of Mt. Etna, the relaxing days met with a bustling nightlife, the enchanting corners and surprising landscapes,

Catania breaks every Sicilian and Sicily stereotype. The cities blend of modernity and authenticity really sets it apart from other parts of Italy's south.

Italy without Sicily, does not leave any image in the spirit. Sicily is the key to everything. The purity of the contours, the softness of everything, the yielding mutuality of the colours, the harmonious unity of the sky with the sea and the sea with the earth ... who has seen them only once, will have them for life.

(Cit. Goethe)


What they say about us

  • Federico II ist von den Sprachschulen in Italien, welche ich besucht habe, die beste gewesen. Wirklich sehr zu empfehlen. Ich habe in vier Wochen einen großen Schritt gemacht. Es fühlte sich nicht an als ob man zur Schule geht, eher wie zu einem täglichen Treffen mit Freunden bei dem man viel lernt. Wer die italienische Sprache lernen möchte ist hier genau richtig. Catania ist eine Sprachreise wert. Ich komme bestimmt wieder. Danke für die tolle Zeit.

    Sono stato dalla scuola Federico II per 4 settimane, è stato un tempo molto divertente. Sono stato capace di avvicinarmi alla Catania e alla cultura siciliana ed ovviamente imparare italiano con l'aiuto di un insegnante meraviglioso. Il corso ha migliorato la mia capacità di parlare italiano e ne sono molto grato. Sicuramente posso raccomandare

    This school is fantastic. It's a great combination of very good teaching methodology, motivation, flexibility, fun and good relationship with the teacher. The teachers are very professional and just super nice and positive people. Apart the language you also learn here very interesting cultural facts, make sightseeing and meet new people. I enjoyed studying in this school a lot and hope to come back here one day for a higher level. Special thanks to Federica, you are a great teacher and real fun. Un baccio 😘

  • Me preparé con la Profesora Marion para rendir el B1 de Italiano. Estoy muy contenta aprobé con 80/100. Profesora muy dispuesta a resolver dudas y siempre buscando alternativas para que pueda comprender el tema. Ideal para quienes desean preparar examen. Recomiendo las clases individuales.

    Federico II in Catania Sicily, is an excellent school to learn the Italian language as well as the rich Sicilian culture and history. The wonderful and professional teachers make it not only a learning center, but also a family like environment. i have attended 4 courses there, to which i came specially from Israel. I intend to continue with this exceptional school for more courses, that each one advances me more. I strongly recommend studying at Federica II, for a different and enriching learning experience.

    I would like to strongly recommend everyone Federico II Italian Language School . If you are going to spend extremely nice time with very friendly atmosphere with the Sicilian, feel and taste Catania, meet people from all over the world, learning italian because of completely different reasons and practice italian in small groups with wonderful teachers (baci Roberta 🙂 who offer you their time, help and friendship, you must go there! I spent there two weeks last year in November (the weather was excellent) and I hope to go there soon.

    I love this school!! They have great teachers and they put together several events a week that you can attend to see different sites in Catania or just relax at dinner with other students and practice speaking Italian. I've attended this school 3 times on three different trips to Catania and I am very pleased every time! I will be back!

    This was one of my favourite experiences while travelling overseas. As well as lessons, the school would throw parties, put on lunches and take us around the city. I spent a whole month at the school and in Catania. I met a beautiful bunch of beautiful people, both the teachers and students were the best. One day I will return xox
