The best way to learn Italian is in Italy!

When learning a new language, there’s no better way to do so than by doing all the activities you would usually do in your own tongue – experiencing the language first hand and completely embracing a whole new and fascinating culture. The more you immerse yourself in the language of the locals, the sooner you will become familiar with the sounds and the structures of that language.

If you’re looking to learn Italian near sandy beaches, a crystal-clear sea, untouched nature and small historic towns and villages rich in history and tradition, then Puglia is the place for you.

Puglia, the land of sun and hospitality, is an agricultural region located on a strip of land in south-eastern Italy (it’s the heel of the Italian boot).
