OUR STUDENTS SAY ABOUT THIS COURSE

This summer, my entire family had the pleasure of studying the Italian language and culture at the "Scuola Porta d'Oriente". I took an advanced Italian course, my husband took a beginner's course and my daughters, 4 year old Angelina and 5 year old Alessandra, took the children's course. We all loved the warm way in which our teachers treated us. We felt like our family was a part of theirs. Each of us was able to learn the language at our own level, and then, together as a family, we were able to experience the many after school, cultural experiences the school offers. We particularly enjoyed learning how to make "orecchiette" (Italian pasta) and traveling underground to see how olive oil was produced years ago. We learned so much and had so much fun doing it that we plan to return next summer. Might I add that the beautiful coast line dotted with ancient architecture makes the experience unforgettable for people of all ages. ATTENDING THE Scuola Porta d'Oriente IS THE OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME AND THE SCHOOLhas my highest recommendation on all counts. IF YOU TRAVEL THE WORLD, YOU WILL NOT FIND A MORE ENCHANTING PLACE OR A NICER GROUP OF PEOPLE.

Ciao Barbara e Angelo,
Grazie per la tua lettera e i tuoi pensieri. Voi siete molto gentili.
Anche noi pensiamo di voi e di tutti alla scuola. Il tempo che abbiamo speso alla scuola sara sempre nel mio cuore. Alessandra ed Angelina parlano spesso di voi.
David, Carla, Angelina, AlessandraNon vedo l'ora di incontrarvi di nuovo. Forse il prossimo Giugno, tornero.
Come dicevo prima, se voi o qualcuno che voi conoscete bene vorreste venire negli stati uniti, potrete restare con me per gratis. Io posso incontrarvi all' aeoroporto e mostrarvi Boston se volete.
Anche se voi conoscete qualcuno che vuole vivere qui per qualche mese o un anno, posso affitare una stanza ad un bel prezzo. Siamo venti minuti da Boston.
Io sono comossa che voi volete usare una foto di noi sul web. Facciate pure. Grazie.
