Through homestays with a family or as part of week long courses through the School of Country Living, learning Italian, if it’s of interst to you can be a fundamental and most rewarding part of your stay here. It has been demonstrated that learning comes most of all when, like children, our bodies are doing something practical. Gone are the days when the only way to learn was sitting in a classroom, working through a textbook. With the Country Living School we open up a whole new world of language learning that makes it easier, more enjoyable and certainly more memorable.
How do we teach at the School of Country Living?
You could learn through an interchange with local students.
Doing something with your hands like a pasta workshop, as you smile and laugh around the word tagliatelle, a whiole new world opens up to the learner.
While making cheese or learning how olive oil is harvested the secrets of this world are opened up to those who are brave enough to learn a new language and nothing could be more rewarding.
Through effort, experience and hard work we continue to expand the change we want to see in the world through our School of Country Living.
So why the Country Living School?
It’s what we love in is this life…
