So it’s in beautiful Scalea or in our luxurious villa’s stunning atmosphere in Praia a Mare that you will participate in an intensive language course, learning Italian, English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese or Russian. By using the language in a constant and efficient manner all day long, you will make progress quickly and learn to speak with increased fluency. Choose a course of one, two, three or four weeks’ duration.

We are convinced you’ll feel welcome and comfortable staying with us. Having studied with Glossa, your language skills will taste of the sea and salt, when affectionately remembering those wonderful locations.
