MARCO POLO / TURANDOT AND INTERNATIONAL PROGRAM

Our Language Centre offers a teaching program organized in a prestigious context dedicated to Chinese students enrolled in the Marco Polo / Turandot and International programs.

Our Language Centre offers to students the chance to study in two beautiful cities, such as Vicenza and Venice. Our lessons take place in modern classrooms, equipped with wi-fi and high-tech technologies.

The historical Language Centre’s headquarters and administrative centre of the Association are located in Paolina Paulon’s villa, a few steps from the historic centre of Vicenza. As an example of Art Nouveau style of the early 1900s, the structure has enchanting rooms with splendid pianos in order to allow our students to attend Singing and Instrument Master Classes.
Our classrooms are located in the historic centre, in a quiet environment and well connected to all student accommodation, as well as bars and restaurants.

During these years, our Language Centre has consolidated its partnerships with the “A. Pedrollo ” Conservatory of Music in Vicenza and with the Accademia Musicale del Veneto, very important realities for our aspiring musicians.

We also collaborate with the Canova Art School in Vicenza for the organization and preparation of art courses for our Academy students, who can study in an artistic context and get to know Italian students. We also have a consolidated relationship with the theatre company “La Piccionaia” of Vicenza and with the Polo Giovani B55.

Since 2016, our Language centre has established a close collaboration with the Academy of Fine Arts of Venice (Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia) for the Turandot project and, since 2018, we have been organizing Italian language and art courses also at our new headquarters in Venice. Our classrooms in Venice are located at VEGA Park, Venice Science and Technology Park, a modern technologically equipped environment.
The structure is easily accessible from the cities of Venice and Mestre, it offers a wide range of services including a bar and a restaurant.

During these years we have also established an important collaboration with Atelier 3 + 10 in Venice / Mestre, an artistic laboratory closely connected with the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice, with which we organize art courses to prepare our students for the admission exams to the Academy.
We also collaborate with the “Benedetto Marcello” Conservatory of Music in Venice for our aspiring musicians.

The Italian Language courses (divided in levels) are the “base” courses on which students can then add other courses of their choice, for example art and music courses.
The Paolina Paulon Language Centre collaborates with qualified teachers from prestigious Italian Conservatories and Academies. They support students in their artistic growth and help them to be fully prepared for the admission exams.

We believe in the importance of having various collaborations with Conservatories and Academies to better assist our students. This is why over the years the association has built up close and solid partnerships with various Italian Conservatories of Music and Academies of Fine Arts.

Our main concerns are the students’ learning experience and process itself, that’s why we have a team of highly trained mother tongue teachers ready to meet the students’ needs and help them reach their objectives

The main goals of our project are: to develop the cooperation between Italy and China, to help overcome the linguistic and cultural barriers our students may face, as well as helping our students integrate in our society.

We organize exhibitions and concerts in order to give our studets the opportunity to perform in front of an audience.
