Italian & Cooking
ITALIAN & COOKING
Gastronomy is one of the fundamental aspects of civilization and culture. Travelling and visiting new countries means also to sample national tastes and flavours. This course is thought for all people who desire to combine the study of the Italian language to the pleasure of making some cooking lessons.
The cooking course is carried out at the teacher’s home.
The cookery teacher warmly welcome all students on the course and demonstrate in particular the secrets and techniques of the Italian and Genoese gastronomy, providing a space to all for practical preparation.
At the end of the lesson, the prepared dishes are offered for dinner. This is also considered a great experience and an unforgettable moment of socialization. It is also possible to follow special cooking lessons based upon special recipes.
ITALIAN AND DIVING
This is a perfect course for adventurous people, wishing to combine a full cultural experience with a unique dive vacation exploring the Ligurian Sea, the gulf and its beauties.
It is possible to take the Open Water Dive Certificate (for those who have not dived before) or the Advanced Open Water Dive certificate, with PADI instructors.
All didactic materials and the equipment regarding the diving lessons are provided by the diving school and are included in the price.
Divers will discover a beautiful coast with alternation of cliffs and beaches. Along the coast there are a few small islands which are peaks of an underwater topography. The few islands of the coastal Ligurian arc have been maintained as an intact environment and are very interesting both from a geological point of view and for the underwater hide world.
The Ligurian Sea introduces all the ideal conditions for scuba divers, the seas depths extend to 2000 meters. The Ligurian coast entertains world famous tourist locations for its numerous attractions and for the transparency of the water. From 1997 Liguria has two sea reserves: the first one covers the coast from the point of the Punta del Mesco to Capo Montenegro, in the Cinque Terre; the other one is located in the Portofino area, in the eastern coast, where in the backdrops of the bay of San Fruttuoso is immersed the statue "Christ of the Abysses"
Specialist course for interpreters
SPECIALIST COURSE FOR INTERPRETERS
The course is addressed to professional interpreters and interpreting students who have almost finished their studies.
Our approach guarantees a constant research of empathy between teacher and student.
Our methodology is not a close system: actually, we do prefer talking about flexible modality rather than method. This offers the chance of experiencing a training which is strongly shaped on the student's personal and professional needs.
Teaching material entirely authentic and up to date.
