This year’s first-ever Italian language course at The Watermill was a great success. Some comments from our guests:

“A super language week. Well organised giving us a taste of ‘real Italy’. Francesca [our tutor] was amazing. Despite the disparity in ability she managed to help all of us towards a better understanding and production of the Italian language. The lessons were fun, interactive and helped me enormously. “The accommodation was great and the camaraderie which evolved was, I’m sure, due to your relaxed and welcoming approach to your guests.”

“We all had such Fun!  I had a wonderful time on the language course and laughed so much!  My confidence and knowledge has improved immensely over the week and Francesca has even sent us exercises to do at home to keep our learning going.  She was tireless and gave us so much. The standard of accommodation, food, drink and your hospitality was, as ever, excellent.”

language shoppingNext year’s Italian Language week will follow the pattern of our 2015 Italian Language week: There will not only be formal lessons under the vine verandah (some 20 hours in the week), but we’ll also be making trips and excursions to savour the natural beauty of Lunigiana, the area surrounding the mill, to explore its history and culture, to sample its traditional foods – and above all, to meet the people, speaking Italian, practising what we’ve learned.

We’ve teamed up again with the Florence language school, Langues Services, to design a week in which people can learn Italian in the most natural and enjoyable way ever. With our wonderful tutor Francesca La Sala, you’ll meet Italian people and interact with their daily lives.

Your immersion into the language and culture of real Italians will be customised for you, to suit your curiosity and your interests, helping you to treasure everything you learn and make it a seamless part of who you are. You will have the perfect opportunity to make new friends in the company of like-minded people learning and improving their Italian language skills… and enjoying unspoilt Italy and, of course, fantastic food and wine.
