Italian Courses

Experience and enjoy Italian near Lake Garda

Would you like to learn to speak Italian in order to enjoy Italian everyday life? Or to refresh your Italian? Perfetto! I offer personalised intensive Italian courses for individuals, couples or small groups of up to four people.

We will look at topics and situations from everyday Italian life. And then we put into practice what we have learned by shopping, drinking coffee or tasting wine together. So we won't be sitting at a table all the time, but will often be in Valeggio. 

This way learning Italian becomes an experience and everyday Italian life a real pleasure.

I'll also do my best to meet your personal learning needs and wishes.

When, where and for how long?

The intensive language course lasts for one week, Monday to Friday from 9 am to 12 pm, at my home in Fornello, a pretty little village set in the vineyards of Valeggio sul Mincio. Valeggio is situated eight kilometres south of Lake Garda and Peschiera.

Do you love Italian cooking?

That’s great - because I love it too! With the option "experience & cook Italian", instead of saying arrivederci at midday, we start preparing a delicious little lunch "all'italiana". And comment the recipe naturalmente in Italian.

This way learning becomes an enjoyable experience! The morning concludes at 1.30 pm.


I offer two different options:

1 week of learning and experiencing Italian: Mondays to Fridays from 9 am to 12 pm, with print-outs.

1 week of learning and experiencing Italian & cooking: Mondays to Fridays from 9 am to 1.30 pm, with print-outs, lunches and recipes.

After a short winter break ...

... in spring I will again offer delicious Italian classes.

Please contact me by mail if you'd like to now the new course dates.

In the meantime I will look for new recipes to cook together!

Stay tuned :)

When we learn a new language, we don't have to know all of the irregular verbs.  What really counts is being able to communicate in the foreign language: asking for information and understanding the answer, understanding the explanation of a recipe, shopping or describing a beautiful sunset.
