One-week language holiday courses
These courses could be defined as "language holiday packages" including the language course, excursions, workshops and accommodation.
In 2006 L’Italiano Porticando will propose two particular language holiday courses which will on the one hand present to the students the cultural attractions of Turin and on the other hand the beauty of the landscape of the Langa, with its wines and gastronomical specialities.
A 15 hour language course in Turin and many excursions in the afternoon: visits to museums, to Turin’s beautiful hillside, to one of the Castles of the Royal family, to a medieval castle and finally a walk between the charming vineyards of the Langa.
Price: 950,00 Euro (including accommodation and excursions)
The entire course is located in a hotel or farmhouse about 30 km from Alba, immersed in the vineyards of the Langa. A part from the 15 hour language course, the students will visit small picturesque medieval villages and will learn about the gastronomical traditions of the region through cooking lessons and wine tastings of famous wines like the Barolo, Barbaresco, Dolcetto ... The week will end with a visit to the historic town centre of Turin.
Price: 800,00 Euro (including accommodation, cooking lessons and excursions)
A part from these two proposals, it is also possible to organise for group language holiday courses with different topics. Visiting our site Italiano Porticando you will find the complete list of topics suggested by the school.
