Italian plus… extra courses

Immerse yourself into our culture, traditions and nature

Why combine an extra course with an Italian course?

A language is not the result of a series of grammar rules but the result of a culture, its history, its traditions and its territory. Therefore, the very best way to learn a language is to be both physically and mentally immersed in the culture of the language you want to learn. Learning Italian happens in a natural and organic way as a result.

We believe that a language is the result of a way of looking at the world and interpreting life and this is what we try to share with our international students by introducing them to our culture, traditions and the natural environment where we live.

If you want to be fully immersed in this process and have fun at the same time, you can combine one of our extra courses with your Italian course in Sicily. The ‘Italian plus…’ courses are held in the afternoons, so they are easy to combine with your Italian language course at school.

Your study stay in Sicily will be enriched with exposure to local culture because studying while having fun is the most effective and quickest way to learn a foreign language.

They all landed on the island and left important traces in the art of ceramic decoration.
