This is a great school to learn Italian. I cannot praise them highly enough. I myself learnt Italian through the Dante Alighieri School and their teaching methods are phenomenal - visit their site for more.
The Dante Alighieri School of Mondavio focuses on the communicative aspect of the language. Even if you start from zero you will soon be able to converse in Italian. The school offers language courses for all levels - they even train Italian teachers!
Location could not be better either. It is set in one of the most beautiful parts of Italy, within the little village of Mondavio. The town, and surrounding area, is simply a joy to experience - this is the Italy we all dream of.
Some of the best courses are those that teach Italian and an aspect of Italian culture. Perhaps the best of these is their Italian cooking and language course. The course, apart from teaching you Italian, will also teach you a whole lot about local Marche and Italian cooking.
Another great option is their opera and Italian course. If you like opera then this is for you. It includes, amongst much else, two visits to the opera. The wine tasting course that the school offers as an add-on is also worthwhile. Great if you are a wine lover - which I definitely am.
Even the language only courses offer a lot of free extras - including excursions to surrounding towns, cultural evenings and a little gastronomy and wine tasting to name but a few. The location of the school means that it is ideal to visit the enchanting areas nearby – places like Urbino, Gubbio etc. A nice bonus is having the seaside is only a twenty minute drive away.
