Courses are held by qualified Georgian and Italian teachers and benefit from the participation of Italian volunteers within the frame of the Erasmus+ or ESC (European solidarity corps) programme, specifically for conversation and informal language exchange.

Courses are being held in an informal and stimulating atmosphere, with classes composed by a small number of students (an average of 3 for class), every day from 13.00 to 20.00 from Monday to Friday, and are aimed at intercultural exchange, inclusion, and solidarity.
