Learn Italian in Sardinia

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! Alghero is also a lot of fun at night, when the town’s fashionable clubs and restaurants fill with locals and holiday-makers alike. 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!

Groups in lessons were small, in my class we were only 4 students, only italian was spoken and therefore I learned a lot. I shared a huge apartment right in the center of the old town: The living room was looking out at the harbour and my room was looking out on the central piazza.
