Enjoy learning in Sicily
In Ragusa Ibla among the arts, culture, delicious food and enchanting landscapes you will find That's Italia, the school for Italian and Sicilian Languages and Cultures.
That's Italia is a new project. It was accomplished by native speaker Italian teachers. They are all qualified, experienced, passionate and aim at discovering Sicily as well as Italy from another point of view: not only as a tourist but also from a cultural and linguistic perspective.
Italian journalist and writer Italo Calvino said: "You take delight not in a city's seven or seventy wonders, but in the answer it gives to a question of yours!" That's one of the reasons for you to enrich your travel experience with a course of Italian Language and Culture!
The courses take place at the Antico Convento (Old Convent), in the gardens of Ragusa Ibla. This charming and relaxed location gives the learners an opportunity to immerse themselves in an atmosphere they won't find anywhere else. Built high above the green Irminio valley, this place was chosen by the Capuchin priests for its beauty and evocative stillness and for the contact with nature. Tastefully restored in 2012, today it is also the centre for the Mediterranean School for Wine and Food (NOSCO), the exquisite Cenobio restaurant and the hotel Antico Convento.
That's Italia is a project which aims at promoting the italian language and culture through courses, excursions and meetings.Read +
