Learn Italian in Sorrento
The Italian language school, in Sorrento perches on the cliff, overlooking the Bay of Naples. The coastal town of Sorrento offers a relaxed, sunshine drenched Mediterranean alfresco lifestyle that appeals to students of all ages. It offers a mild climate that makes it a popular year round destination and VERY busy (& hot) in the summer.
For those that want to combine an Italian course with an activity the school offers Italian & Ceramics, Italian & Cooking, Italian & Voice (singing) and Italian & Diving courses.
CESA Plus Points:
- Easy access to Pompeii, Naples, Herculaneum, Capri or Ischia
- Popular for offering a range of interesting courses; Ceramics, Cookery, Singing and Diving programmes in addition to the Italian courses
- School visits to Limoncello & ice cream factories and boat trips
- Wonderful central location with cliff top views
- Personal service & caring atmosphere
By the end of the course I felt I’d made huge progress – the level I reached was well beyond my initial expectations. The teachers were fantastic and I feel I formed some good relationships with them during my time there. The lessons were good although two hours of solid language learning followed by another two solid hours is quite hard going. I liked the way it left my afternoons free however.

About the School
Founded in 1998, the Italian language school offers both Italian language training and also modern language learning courses to the local population. In 2010 the school relocated to a historic convent building, is located in the centre of Sorrento. It is a gorgeous 16th century Palazzo, whose classrooms offer fabulous views over the sea, the town or the school’s gardens.
There are 10 classrooms (with air conditioning), a small library, a student room with internet access and terrace areas to sit outside and relax in; for self-study, socialising or simply to take a break in and enjoy the Sorrento sunshine … And the school is just a short walk to the beach!!
The college appeals to students of all ages, as do the additional classes offered in Cookery, Singing (with a former tenor of the Teatro San Carlo in Naples) and Ceramics. From May to September, Diving lessons are also offered through a local professional Diving School.
The staff are very friendly and students love the atmosphere of this small Italian school, the marvellous climate and the relaxed style of life.
