Learn Italian in Sardinia, Italy!
For the best beaches, clear waters and fine, powder-like sand, learn Italian in Sardinia! Our school in Sardinia is located in the beautiful town of Alghero, on the sparkling Riviera del Corallo, considered by many to be the finest coastline in the Mediterranean! In addition to many beautiful beaches, Alghero also has a picturesque old town, full of colourful side streets and markets where you can practice the Italian you have learnt in class! Learn Italian in Sardinia, and you’re sure to eat well – the locals favour hearty, rustic dishes made to old Sardinian recipes. You’ll find classics such as freshly made minestrone and ravioli, plus regional specialities like malloreddus, a delicious gnocchi dish!

Whilst you’re in Alghero, don’t forget to take a boat trip along the coast to Neptune’s Grotto, a series of caves straight out of a Sardinian pirate story!

Alghero - a Sardinian Paradise!
Ok guys (and girls!)... Close your eyes for a second and follow me...
Think of a wide, white sandy beach lapped by a crystal-clear blue sea. Imagine the crunchy feeling of delicious tasty seafood in your mouth, the intense scent of rosemary and the bright red colour of coral. Your senses are going to explode!
Perhaps you are thinking that I am describing an exotic Caribbean destination, located a thousand miles away from Europe. But you're wrong! I am dreaming of Alghero, a little paradise situated on the northern coast of Sardinia where I spent an unforgettable time this summer!
Every day there was something exciting to do: a boat tour along the coast to discover the beautiful "Grotte di Nettuno", a visit to the natural caves with amazing stalagmites and stalactites, an excursion to visit one of the "nuraghi" (prehistorical buildings) or, of course, simply relaxing on the beaches.
It was just perfect! The course was very well managed by the school, the teachers are very experienced and I learned more than I had expected. I actually did not want to leave!
Groups in lessons were small, in my class we were only 4 students, only italian was spoken and therefore I learned a lot.
Very good course, with excellent teachers and very nice people. The accommodation was excellent, my host family were great with a very nice house.
The ambiance in the school was great and the teaching excellent. I would recommend this school to everyone who is interested in learning Italian and having a great week.
