As a teacher of Languages with much experience over many years in teaching Italian to non-native speakers, I have recently decided to offer the opportunity of a Full-immersion Course to those who are seeking a very intensive dimension of language study and a dynamic active experience of the Italian culture and lifestyle.
The Study-Stay is located in the Castelli Romani area, in the scenic hills above Rome, an area famous for its beauty and rich history. My guests will be able to enjoy both the relaxed atmosphere offered by the countryside and also be able to easily reach nearby Rome itself, to visit well-known places of interest. The participants will be completely free to relax at home or to go out on excursions. The area is well served by the Rome underground/metro and by regular buses, though, if necessary, private assistance can also be arranged.
The Italian Language Course will be organized as a week of five daily sessions of three hours each. An additional two hours of study time will be allocated each day to complete assignments or to dedicate to language-related activities, during which time the Teacher will be accessible.
Learning about the Italian lifestyle will include experiencing of our way of eating, including informal cooking lessons. The Mediterranean diet is highly recommended by doctors and justly famous; so Italian Cooking Lessons in typical home-cooked dishes will also be offered, so that guests can gain hands-on practice and broaden their vocabulary. Special diets can also be arranged.
The accommodation consists of a very comfortable house in the countryside with enclosed garden, where guests will be completely free to enjoy all the rooms (living room, television room, dining room), with full access to laundry facilities. Each guest will have their private room and bathroom.
The stay will be organized on a full board basis; meal time can be flexible, if arranged in advance.
A half-board program is also available, if the guest prefers to be free in the afternoons and evenings. Breakfast and brunch or lunch will be provided.
The guest can also arrange to be free on weekends.
