The courses take place in Cagliari, the most important city of Sardinia, on the south cost of the island, in an elegant student hostel, situated in a well connected university area close to the sea.
The course can be canceled if there are not enough applicants.
We can also organize individual courses. They might start at any moment. If you are interested, please feel free to contact us.
Classes are from Monday to Friday from 9.15 a.m. to 11.00 a.m. and from 11.30 to 13.15. Classes are kept to a maximum of twelve students per class. Each applicant has to fill up an evaluation form at the application step in order to allow us to form homogeneous class for each level. Considering it, each student is assessed on the first day and placed in a class suitable to his/her level. There are four course levels:
E – Elementary
I – Intermediate
A – Advanced
Additional afternoon-courses take place from 4.00 p.m. till 6.00 p.m. A wide range of topics are hold in workshop like: Italian fashion, Mediterranean cuisine (Italian recipes), arts, history, law, commercial correspondence. Note that you can ask in advanced that we organize lectures on specific topics that you would like to hear or to deepen.
