COSA DICONO I NOSTRI STUDENTI

The workshops and the teachers pull you in via engaging and unique ways that excite adults to want to learn, and you find yourself emboldened and wanting to try to speak and communicate. And while doing so, you have gentle and gracious help and guidance from the teachers as they find a compassionate way to correct you or help you to properly pronounce things. It truly is fun and satisfying.

The availability of cultural immersion in films, regional cooking, and weekend workshops all in Italian are challenging and informative.

The cooking classes are in Italian. It’s so much fun to be able to understand most of what is said by the instructor and then dine on a fabulous feast.

Especially fun, led by native Italians who are sharing their family recipes and recipes that are special to their region. We all work together preparing the food and conversing (learning new vocabulary such as apron, colander, pot, pan, bowl, whisk, simmer, etc.) and then sit down together to enjoy the fruits of our labors, some wine, and converse.

In March 2016, we were pleased to feature the beautiful region of Umbria by inviting our dear friend Letizia Mattiacci, who runs the Umbrian agriturismo Alla Madonna del Piatto. It was a great opportunity to have her in the kitchen where workshop participants learned how to taste olive oil and then prepared an Umbrian lunch featuring recipes from Letizia’s recently released cookbook, A Kitchen with a View.

We might watch a short film and hear a lecture about Italian cinema from an Italian expert on film, and then discuss, or learn about Italian culture via an evening of watching actual Italian TV ads through the years and then discuss while sharing a glass of wine and some wonderful Italian appetizers. A workshop on opera by an Italian opera singer is another example of the creative ways Percorso approaches teaching.
