Designed to encourage students to practice their Italian in real-life situations, these activities focus on fluency, practicing specific structures and vocabulary in free conversations.
This is practical learning at its best: students are encouraged to listen and talk to the professionals leading the classes, asking questions and converse with them and amongst each other. These classes can be booked as a complement of the Group and Individual courses or 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.
The cooking lesson is run by an experienced local chef in her own kitchen; the rowing lesson is led by qualified rowing instructors. Diego or Lucia take care of the linguistic side of the classes.
