Designed to encourage students to practice their Italian in real-life situations, these activities focus on fluency, practicing specific structures and vocabulary depending on the context of the conversation.
This is practical learning at its best: students are encouraged to listen and talk to the professionals leading the classes while discovering Venice and its culture away from mass tourism. These classes can be booked as a complement of the Group and Individual courses. They can also be booked on their own. Lessons usually begin at the school premises and are then carried out at different locations: in the chef’s kitchen or at our local rowing club.
Lessons are run respectively by our fabulous in-house chef and by our special rowing instructor with Diego or Lucia taking care of the linguistic side of the class.
