Italian Christmas Course in Sorrento
Come and join us in Sorrento for Christmas, a beautiful town just off the Amalfi coast that is brimming with art, history and culture. And what better time to experience Sorrento’s rich culture first-hand than over the festive period? You can take a wander through the animated streets, where every corner is alive with excited locals and street vendors selling all kinds of unique, local products, including ceramics, lace and, not to mention, limoncello! If you think Sorrento is impressive in the summer time, you should see it in the winter! Its many churches and cathedrals are adorned with thousands of twinkling lights, making the city look even more magical than ever.
Our school in Sorrento is situated right in the city-centre, with many cafés, bars and restaurants within easy reach. The ideal location will ensure that you are right at the heart of the festivities, where you can truly experience the city’s sense of community over the Christmas period.
Our Italian Christmas course in this location consists of 20 group language lessons per week (4 classes per day), which take place between 9:00 and 12:40 Monday to Friday (with a 30-minute break in between). Social and cultural activities take place in the afternoon and evenings. In 2019, tuition is available for one week from Monday 16th to Friday 20th December, and accommodation is available from Sunday 15th Thursday 26th December.
This programme also includes:
• course materials
• 11 nights of homestay lodging on half-board basis
• an orientation tour of Sorrento
• Christmas-themed activities at the school
• an excursion to Naples
• 3 Christmas-themed cooking lessons with your hosts (23rd, 24th, and 25th December)

Accommodation with a local host is included in this package and is available from Sunday 15th to Thursday 26th December. We may be able to add extra nights on arrival for you, though it is not possible to add extra nights on departure.
2 daily meals (breakfast and dinner) will be provided by your hosts - since dinnertime presents the perfect opportunity to socialise, you’ll benefit from invaluable language practice outside the classroom. You’ll share the bathroom with your host(s) and any other students in the home. Bed linens are included but towels are not, so you should bring your own. Laundry is available for an extra charge (to be paid on-site).
If you prefer, you are welcome to book just the week of tuition with us and arrange your own lodging in Sorrento.

In addition to the Italian lessons, our Christmas course in Sorrento also includes an extensive cultural activity programme. This consists of:
• an orientation Tour of Sorrento
• afternoon activities at the school such as watching Italian films or cultural seminars
• an excursion to Naples to visit the city, and in particular, San Gregorio Armeno - the popular street with figurines and typical Neapolitan nativity scene sets
• a visit of Sorrento's monuments and churches
• 3 cooking lessons with your homestay host on 23rd, 24th, and 25th December 2019
All activities are held in Italian, giving you the opportunity to practice your Italian skills outside the classroom and meet fellow language enthusiasts. Most of the activities included in this programme have a Christmas theme and will therefore give you an insight into the local history of Sorrento and Italian festive traditions.
