    Italy Today' course: Italian language and culture

    Recommended for:
    Students that already have basic Italian linguistic skills and in addition to improving their language, want to know more about the Italian culture, history and to understand its economic, social and political situation.

    'Italy Today' is a programme that combines the Intensive Italian language course (4 Italian lessons a day, a total of 20 lessons a week) with a collection of lessons about Italian culture, history, economics and society.
    The course is available for 1 or 2 weeks.

    A deep understanding of another culture is achieved by aquiring linguistic abilities, but also through studying and examining the history and society: in the programme of this course, these two aspects are perfectly combined.

Accommodations

    Apartment Standard

    From : 18 years
    Time in transit : 20 - 45 min walk or by public transportation
    Living in an apartment with Italian or foreign students, or with the landlord, requires maturity but also allows you to have a lot of independence. You will share the bathroom and the kitchen with other students, and you can cook for yourself.

    Facilities
    you will share an apartment or a floor of a house with other students at the Leonardo da Vinci School, Italian students or with the landlord. All students share the kitchen and the bathroom with others. Apartments are furnished and the kitchen is provided with all necessary utensils (dishes, plates, pots etc). You can cook and eat by yourself or with the other students. Electricity, gas, water, bills and taxes are included in the rent. Bed-linens are provided and changed every two weeks or, in alternative, upon arrival each student will be given a set of bedlinens, two sets if they stay for a longer period. In this case students will wash bed-linens themselves. You must bring your own towels. We suggest organizing something to eat for your first dinner. The apartment does not have a telephone. The apartment will be cleaned before your arrival. During your stay you will be responsible for cleaning your own room as well as the common rooms (kitchen and bathroom).

    Host family

    From : 18 years
    Time in transit : 20 - 45 min walk or by public transportation
    When choosing families, we do not look for luxurious accommodation, but rather Italian families that happily welcome foreign students. In addition, the word 'family' should not just be understood according to its traditional definition: family can also mean a couple without children or a single father or mother who simply enjoy the company.

    Meals
    you can choose between breakfast or half-board (breakfast and dinner). You will eat with the family, but remember that the habits and routines of Italians may be different to your own. Generally, breakfast is coffee or tea with bread, butter or marmalade. Dinner is a full meal that is served around 20.00.

    Rules of behaviour if living with a family
    Living with a family gives you the unique opportunity to integrate yourself in Italian culture and the way of life, but there are a few necessary compromises to be made between you and the family that host you. There are some rules that you must follow: keep your room tidy; do not wake up the family when you come home after midnight; do not use the personal items of the family without permission; do not use the kitchen for your own purposes; the use of the washing machine is not included, so you cannot use it without permission of the owner; the use of the iron is permitted without charge; you are permitted to use the common rooms and to receive telephone calls; the room (if it is not locked) will be cleaned every day.
