Cooking & Other Activities

Learn to cook Italian style…

Cooking and fine food are an integral part of Italian culture and our cuisine is world renowned for its use of simple but delicious ingredients. For many students, one of the highlights of their stay here is the opportunity to take a cooking class with trained chef, Signora Lalla who will teach you how to make tasty, traditional Tuscan dishes in her cucina. After the class, you get to try your dishes over a glass of wine and take the recipe with you to impress friends and family when you get home!

Learn to sing with an opera singer or play an instrument

If you are a fan of opera and classical music, you may like to consider combining your language course with a singing or music class. We can organise for you to either learn or improve your basic singing techniques under the tuition of a trained Italian opera singer. If you prefer playing an instrument or would like to learn, we can arrange for you to take a class at the music school of Arezzo (www.scuoladimusicale7note.it)

Tuscan wine and olive oil tastings

Join us on a trip to the beautiful Podere di Pomaio, a local winery that produces delicious organic wines, for a tour of the vineyard and cellar before enjoying a special wine tasting with owners, brothers Jacopo and Marco Rossi. If you are tempted to buy some wine to enjoy later, you can take advantage of a special discount. We also organise olive oil tastings at Podere di Pomaiao (www.pomaio.it)

                                       

We attended the Italian language class in Cultura Italiana Arezzo and had a wonderful experience! We stayed for two weeks in Arezzo in a beautiful and very reasonably priced apartment that the school found for us, right in the center of the ancient city of Arezzo. The language class taught by Monica was just right – both challenging and accessible. Monica is a highly skilled teacher and very responsive to the needs of her students. There were only three of us in the class, and though we spoke little Italian at the beginning of the week, she spoke only Italian with us for the entire time – and we learned so much from her! Arezzo is a lovely and interesting town, and is situated in a great place for exploring other Tuscan towns. This experience put us right in the middle of Italian culture, history, language and every day life. What a great two weeks! Molto grazie e ciao!
