EDUCATIONAL OFFER

Our summer school is founded on three cornerstones: language, culture, region. Three voices of a single fascinating tale, blended together in a harmonious and balanced framework. Three learning paths converging in an experience of full immersion not only in the Italian language and culture, but also in the Cinque Terre.

As well as being depicted in our logo, the cornerstones are represented by different colors: azure for the language, yellow for the culture and green for the region. These colors, evoking the different elements of the Cinque Terre landscape, constitute a special chromatic guide that will accompany the students throughout their learning process.

PROFICIENCY LEVELS

Our summer school is organised according the Common European Framework, with proficiency levels going from A2 to C2. We don’t offer A1 level since, to ensure the full usability of our specific learning proposal, absolute beginners are not accepted. Moreover, to ensure the best effectiveness of our language education approach and foster the language acquisition process, the various levels are divided into small classes up to 15 students.

WEEKLY TIMETABLE

Our educational offer is plentiful and varied, as well as larger than the one of average intensive courses: 25 hours of lessons in class week; 10 hours of workshop, guided visits and other cultural activities; 5 hours of leisure activities. Altogether 40 hours for week, that is 120 hours in three weeks of course, corresponding to six university credits.

Learning activities are conveniently divided in the different times of the day. In the morning (from Monday to Friday) classes of Italian language and culture, in the early afternoon (from Monday to Wednesday) workshops dedicated to the discovery of local area and its culture, in the evening (two days for week) the leisure activities.

And as a summer school has to be above all an unforgettable holiday, we will leave our students enough time to enjoy the sea, the sun and all the beauty of the Cinque Terre: thanks to the adoption of 45 minutes academic hours, the average daily work time does not exceed six actual hours.
