Welcome

Italian Language and Culture Teaching has been well-established both in Italy and abroad for a long time. Foreign students and immigrants from all over the world are attracted by the richness and variety of the Italian language and cultural traditions and the opportunities that our country offers. The need for employment and integration or the mere pleasure of learning Italian and studying our culture in depth lead people of different origin to attend an Italian course or have a holiday in our country.

I.L.S., Italian Language School in Palermo, results from this awareness and the will to promote and spread the linguistic and cultural heritage of Italy and Sicily . The school specialises in the organisation of Italian courses and services for foreign students who live in Sicily or come here on holiday.
I.L.S. is part of Tredun S.r.l., a leader in the education, training and management of human resources, specialising in the organisation and supply of language and IT courses through the following trademarks: Istituto Dante Alighieri, British Institutes, Instituto Velázquez and Istituto Gamma.

I.L.S. arranges Italian exams and awards the relevant certificates through the Istituto Dante Alighieri trademark, of which our school is the exclusive licensee in Palermo. Istituto Dante Alighieri, founded in Milan in 1923, has been one of the first schools to promote the spread of the Italian language and culture and is widespread all over Italy. It is authorised by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (see Decreto Dir. n. 174/02 – n. 5.305/02 – L.R. 28/96 ), accredited by the Italian Ministry of Labour (see D.M. n. 166/01 – R.L. Decreto n. 14305/02 – Operatore n. 2011.912 ) and awards certificates valid for admission into schools and universities and for public administration purposes.
