La Dolce Vita - Courses for the Over-50s

These courses are aimed at people over 50 years of age, who wish to combine language learning with a memorable and fascinating holiday in Italy.

The courses are characterised by simple and enjoyable programmes aimed at learning through conversation. They can be offered as group, two-to-one and one-to-one courses, depending on the number of participants. People travelling alone who wish to join a group course will be able to join a standard course for the morning lessons and follow a cultural programme specifically designed for "mature" students in the afternoons. In the case of a large groupof travellers, we can arrange a personalised programme which includes both lessons and cultural activities
