Speak Language Immersion Programmes have one basic aim: to immerse our learners in natural, authentic English in a beautiful location. We bring together native English speakers from around the world to immerse Italian learners in an environment of authentic English conversation. The Programme develops the language skills of speaking and listening without using ‘traditional’ language learning methodology i.e., no books, lessons or teachers.
Our 4-day Speak Programmes take place in beautiful Italian locations, offering full board throughout the stay and an authentic Italian experience. Our locations include an ancient cardinal villa in Lazio, a woodland country hotel in Lombardy and a Mediterranean estate in Puglia.
The ideal place for nature lovers, the Castelbarco country hotel is surrounded by 75 hectares of woodland, flora and fauna, all less than an hour from Milan, Lombardy.
A historic Art Nouveau villa in the small town of Varano Borghi. Surrounded by a 6-hectare park near the eastern shore of Lake Comabbio, around one hour west of Milan.
