Immersion Program in Puglia
Live an authentic immersion program in Puglia where learn Italian with locals and do amazing cultural activities in small groups.
We invite you in this exclusive experience in a wonderful land where immerse yourself in true Italian life for two weeks, meeting locals people, cooking with them, visit wonderful spots, tasting organic food and swimming in enchanting blue sea. Everything with lovely care of our Italian staff.
The program is divided with Italian lessons in the morning and fun and cultural activities in the afternoon, like cooking lessons with the grandmother, wine tasting on the farm, Italian lessons at the market, excursions in most beautiful spots of Puglia, afternoons spent on the secret beach and much more.
The school is located in Alberobello, famous around the worlds for his typical “trulli”, unique house, due to the conical roof and cylindrical shape, built using just polished drystone. These constructions, that seem spawned from the mind of a fantasy writer, were once the typical home for peasant families in Alberobello.
All our teacher are high qualified and certified in teaching Italian as foreign language and all our classes do not exceed 5-6 students, allowing us to conserve the good quality of the lesson by working in small groups and never leave anybody behind.
We do not plan activities, but experiences. Our mission is to make you experience a true cultural immersion where practice Italian every day and full enjoy your holiday. We like to work with small groups (up to 8 people) and we offer high quality and non-tourist experiences.
During your stay, you will be welcomed in a friendly and informal environment where you will have the feeling from the first day of being at home. Andrea (the director), and Paola (his partner), will take care in every details, of your trip.
What we will do?
For example: one day we will make orecchiette at Granma Maria’s house, or another day go to visit Matera, the city made up in the caves, or Lecce, the Florence of the south, or Polignano a mare, Locorotondo, Alberobello. Another day will do a real wine tasting in old “Masseria “ (Apulian farm) or visiting an extra virgin oil mill. And why not write about “benvenuto aperitive” a real master to know and to let us know by pur students make feel immediately at home away home.
You will live in Alberobello, where you can relax, live slowly, and enjoy la dolce vita maybe drinking a cappuccino or hanging at the pool. We offer big variety of different accommodations for different experience: a trullo in the countryside with pool, a comfortable hotel in center, private and big apartment few steps from the school, shared apartment with others students or homestay with an Italian family. /p>
