The Language School

The language school in Sicily is located in the heart of Taormina on the east coast of Sicily. The school opened in 1982 teaching Italian to foreign students. The school's founder and owner wanted foreigners to have the opportunity to experience the important historical treasures of Sicily, and learn about the roots of Italian culture. The language school is one of the few language schools in Sicily, but nevertheless it is recognised all over the country.

Teaching

The teaching at the school in Taormina is, like all our language travel programs, of the highest quality, and this creates the right environment for learning in small international, level segregated classes. All teachers are university trained teachers. You will take an  Italian language level test on arrival and then will be placed in the language class that best suits your ability. The course includes 20 Italian lessons per week.

Accommodation

Participants will stay with a local host family in a single room. All host families are carefully selected and are regularly visited by language school representatives, ensuring a high standard and quality of all the host families.

Meals

The accommodation will include half board. The host family will provide breakfast and dinner.

Activities / Excursions

The language school in Taormina has a fully organised activity and excursion program included in the price. Each week there will be approximately four afternoon activities and one full-day excursion. Additionally, there will be two exciting lectures on Sicily's history and culture. All activities will give you a unique opportunity to practice the Italian language while you have fun. 

Transfer Service

Upon arrival in Sicily's Catania airport you will be picked up by one of the language school staff, who will take you to your host family. There will also be a transfer back to the airport on departure.
