A professor from Dante Alighieri Siena will visit the home every day to teach you general Italian as well as specific subjects of interest. You will also take part of the family's social and family life and will therefore be able to learn Italian in every moment of the day; casually chatting with your professor or family members, going to the cinema or theater, visiting friends of the family, shopping, etc. Sonia (the mother) will also gladly take you on hikes around the surrounding country-side with breathtaking views.
The course will be designed specifically for you according to your needs, age, level of Italian and personal interests. You will find yourself totally immersed in a typical Italian-speaking environment and learn in a relaxed atmosphere, with the undivided attention of your professor. Our one-to-one homestay program offers the advantage of flexible scheduling, from 3 to 4 hours per day of Italian language instruction, or a customized program coordinated by the professor and student together.
Participants will have a great time exploring the hosting city of Siena and its fabulous surroundings filled with Medieval and Renaissance Art. We welcome single travelers and couples. In order to give participants the highest quality and best experience we only host one person or couple at a time. Given the high request, we recommend early booking to avoid disappointment.
