L’Olivo Italiano offers Italian language and culture courses in the beautiful Tuscan countryside to adult, 50+ and senior students.

A formula in which cultural and linguistic discovery is synonymous with pleasure and relaxation.

The tranquility of the Tuscan countryside allows small groups of students from different parts of the world, of the same age and with the same interests, to be able to live together a unique experience of language immersion.

Our adult, 50 + and Senior courses promise tailor-made learning as well as beautiful discoveries and new encounters.

The Italian Language Courses in the morning

The program will include a language course every morning, Monday to Friday, from 9:20 to 13:00, with a 20-minute break. Teachers are highly qualified and experienced in teaching their language to foreign students. The teaching method is mainly “communicative” and focused on oral competence, even if the written skills are not neglected. The main goal is to allow students to communicate in the language and of course have fun!

The course lasts for two weeks but you can also attend longer or only one week. This course is ideal for those who want to devote themselves intensively to the study of Italian in the morning and have free time in the afternoon to visit the territory, participate in our activities and/or study independently.

Activities in the afternoon 

For the afternoon we propose a special program of cultural activities that includes excursions, guided tours and activities such as cooking courses, wine and oil tastings, watercolor lessons and much more. Our courses are not only language courses but a real immersion in the Italian culture. Why attend an Italian course in Italy, if not to practice the language with Italians? We want to offer always new opportunities to practice Italian: our students can participate in our free appointments: Italian cinema, language exchanges (Italian Speed Date) or aperitif or may choose to participate in Social and cultural activities that we propose.

Our goal is to always feel a group of friends, exchange experiences and skills, so there will always be the opportunity to spend time together, for example to take a walk in the park, eat all together or just drink a coffee… Espresso of course!

For senior students who want to immerse themselves fully in Italian language and culture, the school offers the possibility to stay in carefully selected families. Alternatively, we offer quality accommodation in private apartments, farmhouses, hotels in the area.
