Just wrapped 2 wonderful weeks of Immersion Program - language class each morning & amazing excursions in the afternoons. I recommended this program to those that really want to dive into a beautiful part of Italy through a fun and effective language school - all levels welcome! The teachers were remarkable humans who shared their love for Italian as well as their home. We tasted it all, we saw so much and even learned a thing or two about ourselves.
The Trulli Italian School was an incredible experience for me. I spent many weeks researching the numerous choices of language programs throughout Italy. And without a doubt, I am thrilled that I chose to attend TIS in Alberobello, Puglia.The 55+ Immersion Program was a perfect fit for my language learning goals. It was truly an incredible experience. My teacher, Elena, was top notch. Having taught for over 32 years myself, I know what quality teaching is and Elena truly has this gift. Andrea and his assistant, Elisabetta, always responded promptly to my questions/concerns prior to the start of the program. And, they assisted me in finding a wonderful apartment for my two week stay in Alberobello. The afternoon excursion experiences were excellent as well, as they gave us the opportunity to see the region in a unique way. Besides being immersed in the language and culture of Puglia, one of my favorite parts of this wonderful experience was meeting so many new international friends. From the first colazione to the final aperitivo, I feel so blessed to have a new Italian family. Grazie mille Trulli Italian School.

I highly recommend the Trulli Italian School for teenagers looking to learn the Italian language. This 2 week immersive experience is organized very well. After mornings of leveled instruction the students embark on excursions to use their new found skills with their new found friends. As a parent, I felt confident in Andrea and his staff. Communication was seamless and supervision and safety were tantamount. The counselors struck a nice balance between responsible adult and older sibling/friend. Our son came away with a greater understanding of Italian, life-enhancing experiences, and a wonderfully eclectic group of new international friends. We looked at other camps and could not find another that was organized as thoughtfully as the Trulli Italian School. Grazie mille Andrea.

My husband and I have just returned from the two week immersion experience for "Over 50". I truly enjoyed this experience! The teachers and staff were very engaging and patient. There were several birthdays for students and they were all acknowledged and celebrated! The afternoon experiences gave a great overview of the Puglia region. And cooking with Nonna was so much fun! We did not take advantage of the accommodations coordinated through the school, so I can't really comment on that part. Alberobello is a truly magical place with great restaurants and shopping. If you want to have a fun experience and learn or improve your Italian I would highly recommend this school!

La scuola mantiene assolutamente ciò che promette! Ho imparato molto, ho riso molto e ho conosciuto persone simpatiche. Dalla segreteria alla direttrice e agli insegnanti, tutti sono stati disponibili e di aiuto. Sceglierei di nuovo questa scuola in un batter d'occhio!

Sono molto convinta di questa scuola. Le lezioni sono vivaci, giocose e si ride molto. La competenza, la pazienza, la simpatia e non ultimo l'umorismo🤣 della mia insegnante Elena mi hanno ispirato. Nei negozi, nei ristoranti, ecc. le persone erano molto aperte e amichevoli nei confronti di noi stranieri, il che ha reso molto più facile l'uso della lingua. La scuola ha organizzato attività per il tempo libero per il gruppo, ma ha anche sostenuto le idee individuali.

The initial appeal of Trulli Italian School is its Immersive Course for over 50s. That said it also offers cultural activities each afternoon which enabled me to enjoy so much of Puglia without a car and as a single traveller. We were assessed for appropriate classes on day one and although there were three distinct levels (I am a beginner) we all socialised out of school. From this diverse group I made some lovely new friends and had much more fun than anticipated. Andrea and his staff are delightful - very involved willing to help at all levels, experienced teachers and fun to work with. I’m considering either returning soon or perhaps continuing with online sessions. Other programs might offer good teaching but may be limited ti class time only. I highly recommend the Trulli Italian school if Italy is your thing. I’ll never forget it.
