The Terramare Italian language school is recognised by the University of Siena and is run by a cooperative of teachers. It was founded in 1986 and is located in the old town centre of Orbetello, Tuscany. Surrounded by its lagoon, Orbetello was an important Etruscan port and the home of trade between ancient civilisations.
You have the opportunity to study Italian language and culture choosing between several courses: standard group Italian course, combined intensive course, individual lessons, preparation course for CILS exam. You can also attend special courses: art & archaeology, nature & sports, cuisine and wine trail.
The method of teaching is centred around the individual student. The communicative approach is based on interactive activities in the classroom and group activities outside, with many cultural trips to a variety of local places of archaeological, artistic and historical interest.
