The cooking lessons are for food and wine enthusiasts, both amateurs and professionals.
The course is for students at all levels.

What are the course contents and objectives?

The language course will help you improve listening, speaking, reading and writing. You will focus on the practical aspects of language useful in everyday life, developing Italian speaking skills and deepening your knowledge of Italian culture. Italian lessons combine communication and grammar in an ideal combination and, at all levels, you will always use the Italian language in class. Plenty of time will be dedicated to expanding your vocabulary in order to speak Italian more fluently. If you are a beginner, you will start learning Italian from the basics and you will see your progress after the very first weeks. If you already have a knowledge of the language, the content will be appropriate to the level of your course, from A1 to C2. To complete each level you will need an average of 6 weeks, but you may need more time for higher levels.
Cooking lessons will allow you to learn the basics of Italian dishes, improve your cooking skills, learn about both traditional regional recipes and new trends of Italian cuisine.

How is the course organized?

For the language course you will be placed in a group of up to 8 people in a comfortable and relaxing environment.
In the afternoon you will have two cooking lessons in a cooking school, where you will have fun under the guidance of experienced cooks.
We will provide you with the textbook and all useful materials. The teacher will use an iPad and after each lesson you will receive a pdf with its contents. At the end of the course you will receive a certificate of attendance.
In the afternoon, or during the weekend, if you want, you can participate in our activities, 2 or 3 per week, organized and guided by the teachers in the school. You will make friends with other students, get to know Florence and its surroundings better, wider your knowledge of Italian culture and have fun practicing the Italian language.
