The University of Turin, one of Italy's best universities, is a great place to learn the Italian language and also to learn about Piedmont and Italian art, culture and much more.
The Comitato Torino
Università runs these language courses throughout the year but they are
fairly few and far between. You don't need to have any qualification -
just be over eighteen and not Italian mother tongue.
A wonderful thing about these courses is that they not only teach you how to speak Italian but at the same time they teach you about a variety of different subjects depending on your choice.
The course on Italian and Piedmont art and culture is a particularly good choice as is the Italian Alps course. The Italian Alps course is packed with amazing information on life in the Alps.
It is particularly ideal for winter sports enthusiasts and for gourmands who would like to sample the wonders of traditional Piedmont food and wine .
The course offers plenty of opportunity for skiing and for food and wine tasting. Both food and skiing in Piedmont are considered to be among the best in the world so a great time most certainly awaits.
one bad thing is that there are very few courses during the year and
they normally get booked up fairly quickly.
