Italian Lessons

ITALIAN COURSES FOR FOREIGNERS. “An alternative way of studying the Italian language” 

Would you like to learn Italian in a relaxing atmosphere, with informal lessons directly in the comfort of your chosen B&B? We like the idea you can learn Italian not only during a normal lesson but also while sipping a cappuccino or eating in an “osteria” or making homemade bread or pizza or strolling through a small village alleys; these are some examples of what you could do here at La Via del Carretto.


Our lessons, individual or in small groups (maximum 6 students), are available at any level from absolute beginner to advanced and can be personalized to meet your individual needs. They usually take place on the top floor of our B&B (in the sitting room or in the terrace) in the morning from Monday to Friday, so you can plan your free time as you’d like. Lessons will be held by an experienced and highly qualified teacher for foreigners who has worked since 1997 in Italy with students of all nationalities and levels. She enjoys her work very much and thanks to her experience she can offers very special communicative lessons totally adapted to your needs. Most of the time will be dedicated to practice listening and speaking through a variety of interesting topics and activities. If you want to know more about your teacher click here

Cooking lessons: “Learning by doing”

You can also decide to include a special “cooking lesson” (1 or 2 hours) not with a professional chef but with your teacher, a Sicilian woman who is used to cook every day for her family. Nothing elaborate or complicated but Italian or Sicilian delicious simple dishes prepared with fresh ingredients in a very easy and quick way. She could show you how to prepare pizza or focaccia  and more. And if you like the idea she will show you how to make homemade bread and then you could try to make it with her help. The lesson will take place in the afternoon in the beautiful B&Bs kitchen where you‘ll also learn new words, terms and verbs relating to food in a natural way.  In the evening, you all will sit down together to enjoy the dish you’ve prepared. So, let’s cook and eat together learning Italian!
