about the Summer course

With experience of teaching English in Italy, France and Ireland along with running an English language school in Italy, the idea of starting a residential English school in our historical family home seemed a very natural one. At this particular age children really benefit from a full language immersion experience. Having the school and host family all on the one site is optimum for ensuring there is maximum exposure to the language as the students will be supervised at all times.
