We have a well-established Italian department with a number of native speakers on staff. We almost yearly have a native speaker language assistant on staff which encourages a deeper learning of the language. Many of our students go on to study Italian at third level with the Business and Italian courses proving very popular. A number of our past pupils have completed a year in a university in Italy as part of their studies.
Italian is studied to higher level in all of our programmes, Junior Certificate, Leaving Certificate, Transition Year and Leaving Cert Applied. There are many school tours to Italy. Last year our second years visited Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast while our fifth years stayed in Florence.
We know you will really enjoy learning this subject and about the culture and lifestyle of the Italian people.
