There are countless reasons to travel, but for many people a trip abroad offers the perfect opportunity to learn a new language. With that in mind, a company has launched a new experience where visitors travel to the rustic Tuscan countryside to learn Italian from local teachers in a serene environment.
The experience is offered by Italian Breaks . Guests participate in courses while at the same time immersing themselves in the culture of the country. One-on-one lessons are given under the guidance of expert teachers who can adjust the topics of the lesson based on the learning levels and interests of each student.
Students can choose from a variety of accommodation options, from spacious villas to modern apartments. A highlight is Villa Circe, a traditional Italian house in the heart of the Tuscan countryside with a swimming pool. Professional teachers visit the houses and take students in a series of activities and language-building exercises.
Italian lessons cost around € 23 for a private lesson with a native speaker, Villa Circe costs € 4250 a week. More information is available on the official Italian Breaks website.
