   Our Italian language school offers a friendly, personal and attentive approach to learning Italian. We are a small, intimate institution with a big desire to inspire learning in relaxed, yet professional surroundings. Individual attention is assured at all times.
   Our school was founded in 1999 and was one of the first Italian language schools in Apulia region.

CLASSROOM TUITION: We offer a variety of Italian language courses to suit all requirements. You can attend an Italian language course featuring a choice of intensities; or you can attend a Business Italian, or the Italian art and about italian literature. We offer also courses for Italian teachers, preparation course of CILS and CELI certificate (The Official Diploma of Italian Language), cooking courses and Italian language courses for children.

THE LOCATION: Otranto is a beautiful historic and artistic town on the seaside at 50 km from the main city Lecce the socalled Florence of South of Italy for its artistical beauties. In 2002, 2003 and 2004 Otranto won "the five flags" prize for the cleanest sea of Italy by "Legambiente" and "Touring Club" (Italian associations about environment and Tourism), and the National Association of the Italian Towns listed Otranto among the first 14 more bautiful towns in Italy.
    Otranto is an important historic and artistic centre because it is rich in remains of the different populations that lived in the Mediterranean area. Another distinct benefit of the region's low tourist profile is the fact that the individualistic tourists who do visit this magical land have interests different from those associated with mass tourism. For these discriminating visitors, the appeal lies with the culture, history, traditions and gastronomy of Apulia.
    People have time to stop and speak to you (in Italian!) and are more than generous with their help and enthusiasm.

   Indeed we encourage all our students to engage in extra-curricular activities as an essential part of their organic learning experience. Through our adaptable cultural program and guided tours of the magnificent Salento region (the romantic coast, the culturally rich Lecce in Apulia, the Greek area), your classroom instruction will gain heightened relevance.

WHY STUDY ITALIAN IN OTRANTO: here study and leisure activities complement one another perfectly. Otranto is a beautiful town on the seaside so you will be on holiday during their studying Italian. Besides its cultural attractions and magical atmosphere, Otranto offers many sports facilities and opportunities for relaxing.
