Pixel is an education and training agency based in Florence (Italy).
Pixel specialises in organising customised individual Italian language courses for foreigners. The courses are highly personalised and flexible, responding to the specific needs of the student or of small groups of students in terms of training contents and time.
When enrolling, students are asked to specify the type of language skills that they intend to develop and in which professional sector they operate. This allows the teaching staff at Pixel to design a completely personalised course which is supported by learning material (in the form of handouts) developed ad hoc.
The teacher is also chosen according to his/her specific skills and background so as to be able to carry out a language course that responds in its entirety to the student's specific interests.
Pixel was founded in 1999 by a team of professionals with over 10 years experience in the field of transnational cooperation for education and training.
Pixel has vast experience in the organisation of professional language courses aimed at individuals who intend to acquire Italian language communication skills.
Please see testimonials written by former students.
