The staff at Apple Language Courses give reasons below for some of their favourite language learning destinations!
Alghero in Sardinia, Italy, is famous for its beaches, clear blue seas and red coral. This medieval port town also has an interesting cultural and historic background, with Catalan origins.
It is a great location for food and nature lovers, and a beautiful setting for studying Italian! Alghero truly comes to life during the summer months.
There are so many reasons why you should visit Alghero, here are my top five…
This well-known phrase and same-titled film and song perfectly describes Heidelberg – the beautiful multicultural city in the Southwest of Germany! As a matter of fact, it’s not just partners that you can fall in love with in Heidelberg… You’ll also find yourself losing your heart to the city itself! It’s no wonder the incredibly picturesque old town attracts visitors from all over the world. Heidelberg immerses you in the German language but also surrounds you with a wide variety of other foreign languages! Sometimes you will hear English, French or Spanish on a walk through this bustling city!
I took part in a French language course in Antibes, France, a couple of years ago. It was a truly amazing experience! Read on to find out about my time at the school!
To find out more about Antibes in general, check out my other article here 🙂
This old and idyllic French town overlooking the Mediterranean sea inspired both Monet and Picasso. You can definitely see why! The scenery around Antibes is breathtakingly beautiful, on one side of the town you’ll find the glittering blue sea and on the other a dramatic mountain landscape. The sun shines here almost everyday and the old town is full of quaint, cobbled streets filled with flowers.
Rouen, the capital of Normandy, is a historic and beautiful city in Northern France with plenty of things to see and do!
Rouen is famous for being hugely important during medieval times. It is significantly known as the place where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake, giving a special meaning to this city and making it a place full of historical interest.
Although pizza is eaten all over the world, the Neapolitan pizza is a true Italian icon and is recognised by the European Union as a ‘Traditionally Speciality Guaranteed’ dish.
If you would like to spend 12 weeks living in the home of pizza (and one of Europe’s most historic cities), learning not just one but two new skills, our Italian and Pizza making course in Naples would be right up your street!
Mardi Gras (Shrove Tuesday) is originally a Catholic celebration, a moment of entertainment for all of us. It celebrates the end of the winter, which is coming soon, by dressing up and eating sugary and fatty foods! It’s also a party day in many schools!
There are some carnivals throughout France, including Nantes, Mulhouse and Cherbourg.
Winter and the cold weather is finally here, so it’s time to cook and enjoy traditional winter dishes with family or friends!
Here are three traditional French recipes to warm and comfort you this winter!
The gratin dauphinois
The gratin dauphinois is a dish originating in Grenoble and a popular dish within the Alps, in south-eastern France. A great classic of French cuisine, this is an excellent accompaniment for meat but it can also be enjoyed alone.
Most students over 50 years of age are happy to join our normal language courses worldwide, at any of our schools, as the programmes are intended for adults of all ages. Indeed, at most of our schools a significant number of the students are often in their forties, fifties and over. This is especially true for locations that are more preferred by the older student, including Aix en Provence in France and Sorrento in Italy.
Some students aged 50 and above prefer to have their language classes and activities exclusively with students of a similar age. It is for these students that we offer our Club 50+ courses.
