Our summer school is conceived as an organic and intensive course lasting three weeks, aimed to promote a global immersion in language, culture and region. Those who prefer a less challenging route, however, can enroll for one of our language courses: the intensive course let you to live the same educational experience of summer school, but reducing the attendance to one or two weeks; while the standard one allows to reduce also your daily task, limiting it to morning classes. All courses, besides classes, include five hours of leisure activities. The summer school, by virtue of its duration, has a weekly cost reduced of about 15% compared to language courses and provides further discounts for young people, students and teachers.
