Italian Courses for families with children

If you are thinking of coming to study Italian in Italy with your family, the ABC Italian language school in Sestri Levante can help you organise a course for you and children of school age.

Course structure

Adults can choose the course they prefer, but we recommend the Standard course in the morning or an individual course so that they have the afternoon free to enjoy the sea or the beautiful walks along the Ligurian coast. Whilst the parents are in class, the children can study Italian with a teacher who will provide them with ad hoc lessons structured according to their age and language skills.

The ABC school in Sestri Levante is situated by the sea, practically on the beach of the Bay of Silence, in a quiet place, loved by young and old alike and close to bars, ice-cream parlours and pizzerias, excellent for a short break between lessons or for lunch.

In the afternoons, you can take part in walks or excursions organised by the school for all students attending our Italian courses in Liguria.
