Italian language school in Alghero
The Centro Mediterraneo Pintadera, which has been open since 2004, is a boutique Italian language school, offering courses in Italian language and culture in the historic seaside town of Alghero on the NW coast of Sardinia. The ideal location, small class size, unique teaching method with highly skilled teachers as well as the relaxed and friendly atmosphere at the school are what make Pintadera so special.
Italian courses offered
Pintadera offers a variety of Italian language and culture courses to study Italian in Sardinia. The heart of the Pintadera program is the "Lingua" standard group Italian language courses offered at various levels with max 8 students. The various afternoon "Cultura" courses provide a further immersion in Sardinian and Italian culture. The "AllegraMente" week is tailor made for travellers; Italian cooking and wine tasting is for everyone! During the summer Pintadera organizes a summer camp for teens. Online classes are also available. Pintadera is an authorized center for the CILS exam and is open all year round.
With native Italian teachers, Pintadera takes the language out of the classroom and into the streets of Alghero. The "Lingua" courses are generally divided into two parts, the first emphasizing grammar and the second focusing on conversation, with a different teacher guiding each segment. Small groups allow for individual attention to each student. Pintadera's goal is to provide Italian language instruction in a pleasant and stimulating environment through a balanced combination of study and leisure in which students of different cultures and generations can thrive together.
