The students stay with a local family chosen by the school that welcome them in a warm and friendly way. Depending on the request of the teachers, the children stay in twos or threes per family (half board or full board.) The life in the family is important to practice spontaneously the language, to know the culture, the habits, the traditions and the ultimate Italian cuisine. The school is in daily contact with the families. The teachers are housed in independent apartments.

On the first day the families accompany the students to school at 9 o’clock: with a presentation of the school, the town and they start the lesson. The children come in different groups according to the level they know the language. Through the use of linguistic games and playful activities, the students use the language freely, taking more care in their expression.

Every morning, from Monday to Friday, they take part in Italian lessons in brilliant and communicative ways. On Thursday morning, they go to the market to practice the language. The children are guided by the teachers, walking to ask for information and learning the daily vocabulary.
The afternoon is dedicated to practical activities because young people are active in class.
