Learn and live like an “italiano"
The Italian course consist in 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
Every afternoon you will discover beautiful spots far from mass tourism and cities points that only local can know: the Unesco Heritages Sites of Matera, one of the oldest city in the world, the “trulli" town of Alberobello (where you will live), along with the enchanting hamlets of Itria Valley (Locorotondo & Martina Franca), the stunning seaside villages of Polignano a Mare and Monopoli, “the Florence of the south" Lecce and other incredible locations just minutes away (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. During your italian language immersion programs you will speak italian all the time while making “orecchiette” with nonna Maria in her home, swiming in secret and enchanting blue beach, exploring an old Apulian homestead “Masseria" or letting yourself be inspired by the magical atmosphere of vineyard with a glass of good local wine and much more…
Relax…. you ‘re at home
You are lucky, because you will live in fairy tale village: Alberobello. In order to make your stay more pleasurable, we offer a vast and flexible variety of accommodations, adapted to your needs: big and new private or shared apartment, enchanted trulli in beautiful countryside with pool, or 3 stars hotel just steps away from the school.
