Wanting to delve into Italian culture, language and traditions in an unforgettable setting? The new Cinque Terre Summer School could be the perfect opportunity for you!
Lingua, cultura, territorio These are the three cornerstones on which is founded our educational offer. In the morning Italian language and culture classes, in the early afternoon workshops dedicated to the discovery of the local area and culture. A teaching proposal specifically designed to offer a full immersion into the linguistic and cultural environment and to promote the natural process of learning in the context of a peculiar microcosm, where the school is expanding in the region and the entire community becomes school.
This year, which is the first year the summer school will be offered, the course will last a total of three weeks between September 7th and 26th. The classes will be based in Riomaggiore, the southernmost of the five Cinque Terre villages. There will be two levels available (beginner to intermediate or intermediate to advanced) with each course entailing 35 hours per week. There is the possibility to book just one or two weeks of the summer school but priority will be given to those wanting to enroll for all three weeks. The rates are as follows:
1 week of Cinque Terre Summer School: €300 per person
2 weeks of Cinque Terre Summer School: €600 per person
3 weeks of Cinque Terre Summer School: €800* per person
*A 10% discount will be applied to this rate for the first 10 university students that enroll for the entire 3-week course.
N.B. The aforementioned rates do not include accommodation. Staff members are currently working on creating a master list of potential accommodations in order to help their students find lodging for the duration of their studies.
