Italian Language School

APICS Italian Cultural Centre is the specialised Centre for Italian language & culture in Singapore, our roots originate since the 1970s.

Our teachers are qualified, screened native Italian speakers with extensive experience in teaching Italian as a second language. APICS is the only official exam centre in Southeast Asia to offer both the CILS and CELI exam certifications, offered respectively by the University for Foreigners of Siena and the University for Foreigners of Perugia. These certifications are internationally-recognized and will be a highly valuable addition within a CV.

APICS cooking courses and classes are designed for participants to have fun while learning authentic and traditional Italian recipes.

We also run the Italian Supplementary School (Scuola Supplementare Italiana) for kids ranging from toddlers to teenagers.

We are an independent non-for-profit organization and beyond language courses, we are proud to offer a huge variety of social, educational and experiential activities connected with Italian culture.

Join our community if you are interested in any aspect of Italian language & culture!


A very warm welcome from all of us here at the APICS Italian Cultural Centre

My name is Jahan, I am an Italian living here in Singapore for over 25 years. Our Association for the Promotion of Italian Culture in Singapore (APICS) has its roots seeded back in the 70s. Back then the Italian community in Singapore was very small, but we believed that we could have grown and shared the values of our culture in Southeast Asia.

Fast forward more than 40 years and here we are. Our Scuola Italiana (Italian school for children) is a pillar of the ever growing Italian community in Singapore. Our language programs are recognized as some of the best in the region, thanks to the accreditation of Italian Universities. Our cooking classes are fun and always in demand. Our corporate programs have become an institution for both Italian and international businesses.

We welcome you to APICS. Join our social events to get in touch with our community. And if you want to know more about our culture, consider enrolling in one of our courses.
