General Program Information

For students wanting to study at an Italian language school in a beautiful natural setting, there is no better place than Orbetello, a lovely little lagoon town between the land and the sea in Tuscany. Orbetello is a pleasant historic town in the centre of Italy, on the Tyrrhenian coast, not far from the most important Italian cities of art and offers all one could wish for an Italian study holiday.

Our school was established in 1986 and since then offers Italian language courses for students from all over the world. If you want to learn Italian or simply improve your language skills, we provide the best language training to meet your needs.

The school is situated in a historic building in the centre of Orbetello. There are 5 classrooms, computer/internet access, TV/DVD and other audio-visual equipment. Terramare provides an accommodation reservation service and accompaniment for excursions that are included in the course fees.

Around the school there is a network of pedestrian only streets and little squares were students can find everything they need. It is really easy to meet local people in Orbetello and the close contact with the everyday life gives our students many opportunities to hear and use authentic Italian.

It is easy to make fast progress as classes are always small with a maximum of 6 students and courses are offered in six levels as described in the Common European Framework of Reference for languages.

Our communicative approach is based on interactive activities in the classroom and group activities outside with many cultural trips to a variety of local places of archaeological, artistic and historical interest.

Cultural activities organized by the school take place three times a week and are free of charge for students attending a course at our school; in the special courses a daily cultural program is included. Exposure to every day real Italian also helps students to develop a natural ear for the language in a variety of authentic communicative situations.

  • Apart from group courses and individual lessons, the school offers courses for students with special interests, such as:

  • Individual course and C.I.L.S. exam

  • Full immersion tutor course

  • Language, nature and sport

  • Language, Mediterranean cuisine and the wine trail

  • Language, art and archaeology

  • From creating to speaking: an archeological and art workshop

  • The language of traveling: educational journey through Tuscany, Umbria, Lazio and Sardinia

The school is open all year round. It is possible to enroll at any time and choose a course specially tailored to your requirements, answering to any need of studying, working, way of life and leisure time and suited to any level.
