Discover our learn Italian in Italy holidays

Practise your Italian over a shot of espresso, use your new lingo to bargain for the freshest produce at local markets, absorb new vocabulary in art galleries and historic museums, and rub shoulders with the locals in squares, at charming cafes and while choosing which gelato flavour to devour – Italian courses should always be this immersive.

Parla Italiano

Italian and English share similar Latin roots (and multiple similar words), making it a great language to learn for English speakers.

And what better place to learn Italian than where this Romance language began?

Italy – with its rustic charm and diverse regions – is bursting with culture awaiting discovery. And with an Italian language course equipping you with lingo, the locals will (almost) think you're one of them.

Learning Italian in Italy means embracing the nuances of a new language and culture, challenging your mind and being willing to make mistakes. Most importantly, it's about sharing laughter, conversation and a glass of wine or a cappuccino with other students and locals – without the stuffy classrooms or piles of homework.

And with native speakers, professional Italian tutors and local teachers helping you perfect your pronunciation, you'll return with a broader worldview and vocabulary.

Where to learn Italian in Italy

Go just to explore one of Italy's diverse regions, or combine your Italian language courses with a cooking or wellness experience.

Discover the stunning Italian Riviera during an Italian course in Sorrento or roam the sun-baked hills of Tuscany. Wander the art-filled, romantic streets of Florence or explore the seat of the ancient Roman Empire -- Rome.

Trade your books for an apron and whip up some pizza, pasta and other classic Italian dishes during an Italian and cooking holiday, or spend your mornings in the classroom and your afternoon at the spa on an Italian and wellness retreat.

Italian immersion courses

To accelerate your learning, try a full Italian immersion holiday. Move in with your teacher for a week and become part of the family. Speak the local language from the moment you wake until you're dreaming in it, too.

You'll see the results: a one-week Italian immersion course equips you with as much language learning as four weeks in a classroom at home.
