Tap To Book Your Place


To complement the learn while you live experience we run in Italy, we run a programme of online workshops for conversational Italian and Italian culture via Zoom video calls at various times throughout the year.

Just like our real-world programme in Italy, the focus of the online workshops is Italian conversation! Practice for learners of Italian, led by the teachers that are with us on our Italian trips.

Workshop Packages

  • A total of 6 or 8 hours, spread over 4 weeks
  • Each session is 60 or 90 minutes, depending on level and subject
  • Zoom groups of 4-6 students (download Zoom here)
  • 6 hours is €90, 8 hours is €120
  • Payments by bank transfer or PayPal
  • All participants are invited to a free introductory session (in Italian!)

Subjects Include

  • Letterature Italiana – a chance to explore Italian authors, discuss their texts, themes and ideas
  • Scrittura Creativa – learn while you write your own stories. The practise of writing is hugely helpful to the learning process.
  • Spunti - taking a text, excerpt, article or video discussion as the point of departure for conversation


    All participants are also invited to join our Live & Learn Italian Forum - a private Facebook group specifically designed for participants of the online workshops to share experiences & chat further with the teachers & other members about the programme & all things Italian. It’s a private group so everyone’s able to talk freely & participate fully - especially speaking in Italian! Italian books to read, best ways to learn, tips from our teachers, films suggestions, testimonials of workshops, & some of the creative writing. And most of all get to know other members.
