Change your point of view

The Italian course will be 20 lessons weekly (from 9.00 a.m. to 12.40 p.m.) in classes that don’t exceed 4-5 people, in order to conserve the quality of the lesson and never leave anybody behind.
However, a lesson can’t be enough, as to understand Italians properly one must live as they do. So, we have chosen to give you some “free day” during the week and enjoy la “dolce vita” like a real inhabitant in Alberobello. After all, what’s better than drinking a delicious cappuccino at the bar, reading the papers in the swimming pool or being on the beach?

Beyond typical tourism

There are really a lot of activities included in our our immersion programs, cause we want to give you a truly immersion in this fantastic region.
We will discover  the Unesco Heritages Sites of Matera, that it will be this year European Capital of Culture, we will visit the seaside villages of Polignano a Mare and Monopoli, the white pearl of Ostuni, along with the enchanting hamlets of Itria Valley (Locorotondo & Martina Franca) and other incredible locations, far way from tourism of the masses (see all the pictures in the gallery below).

Enjoy your southern life…

The best way to learn Italian is to immerse yourself in the lives of the people, in their culture, in their beauty. You will learn italian while making “orecchiette” with nonna Maria in her home, swiming in secret and enchanting blue beache that just local like us knows :), doing boat tour in Polignano a Mare with the captain, exploring an old Apulian homestead (masseria) or letting yourself  be inspired by the magical atmosphere of vineyard and taste good local wine and much more

Relax…. you ‘re at home

In order to make your stay more pleasurable, we offer a vast and flexible variety of accommodations in Alberobello, adapted to your needs: single or shared apartment, Trulli in the countryside with pool or 3 stars hotel just steps away from the school. Italian immersion programs for adults
