Linguaviva’s broad study portfolio includes courses specifically dedicated to Chinese students enrolled in the Marco Polo-Turandot Project. Thanks to this programme, Chinese students have the opportunity to prepare to enrol at Italian higher education institutions, such as universities, Academies of Fine Arts, or conservatories, for a three-year or Master’s degree course.


The Linguaviva programme for Chinese students enrolled in the Marco Polo-Turandot Project offers comprehensive Italian language studies recognised by leading Italian universities, fine arts academies, and conservatories. The course, offered at our schools in Florence and Milan, is based on the Common European Framework, guaranteeing a structured learning path that helps students advance their language and communication skills.

During the course, students will acquire the language skills necessary to reach the B2 level required for access to Italian academic institutions. Spoken and written comprehension and production, acquisition of vocabulary specific to their area of study, and Italian language test exercises are organised. Special attention will also be paid to knowledge of Italian culture, through seminars and visits to sites of particular cultural interest.


At the end of the course, students will have to pass a final exam which will certify that they have reached level B2 and will allow them to continue with their enrolment at their chosen university.
Targeted support
In the event that students choose a degree course with a selective entrance examination, such as architecture, design, engineering, economics, medicine, an Academy of Fine Arts, or a Conservatoire, Linguaviva offers targeted support to tackle the specific entrance exams. Thanks to our dedicated support, students will be trained to successfully pass these exams and gain access to their university of choice.

By choosing Linguaviva’s preparation courses for the Marco Polo or Turandot Projects, Chinese students will be given a solid linguistic and cultural background before successfully embarking on their studies in Italy. Our team of highly qualified teachers and tutors and our high-quality teaching approach are ready to support students every step of the way.
