OUR STUDENTS SAY ABOUT THIS COURSE

Migliorare la propria conoscenza della lingua italiana alla “Scuola Porta d’Oriente” è un esperienza straordinaria e indimenticabile: Subito si è immersi in un bagno di cultura combinando dati dell’evoluzione della societa italiana e le sue diversità ma soprattutto nell’approcio alle arti quali l’architettura, la scultura, la musica, la letteratura; ovviamente la storia, i costumi della Puglia hanno una parte preponderante senza contare la passione per il Salento di Barbara e le visite delle bellezze della regione ravvivate da chiarimenti affascinanti.
Inoltre l’atmosfera dei corsi è anche allegra perché la Barbara ha il dono pregiato di vi fare “lavorare” con piacere e trasmette la voglia di imparare.
Questa cosa è la più importante e “l’effetto” Barbara prosegue in casa facendo assimilare meglio tutto quello che si è imparato.
In conclusione vorrei dire che sono tanto entusiasta e che ho deciso di “raddoppiare” mio soggiorno a Otranto l’anno prossimo.
