The best and truly only way to learn the Italian language is to attend an Italian language school in Italy. Most people interested in receiving high quality Italian language instruction will seek an immersion experience early on in their program of study. You are probably looking into opportunities for study in Italy, and we would like to share our experiences with you.
Consider the Advantages of a Homestay ...
Most Italian language school experiences are classroom-only. The majority of your time "in country" would then be spent on your own. Likely, you would be residing in a hotel or apartment, or perhaps with a host family of uncertain interest in helping you with your language skills. Almost unique in Italy, La Scuola Appia Vecchia in lovely Velletri (just outside of Rome) combines intensive Italian language classroom instruction with a homestay at the residence of your instructor, Professoressa Francesca Valentini.
