Learning with Pintadera is inspiring

Our teachers are energetic university graduates, specialized in the teaching of Italian as a second language, chosen for their teaching ability as well as their engaging personalities. From the beginning we take our students out of the classroom and onto the vibrant streets of Alghero. Not only will you speak Italian, but you will eat, drink, and above all live and breathe the Italian language in Alghero Sardinia.

We offer a complete range of Italian Language courses, tailored to your interests and abilities, and a variety of Special Courses which convey this Mediterranean culture and our way of life. Our program is not merely a language course, but a total immersion in the rich life of our town. Our objective is to provide Italian language teaching in a pleasant and stimulating environment through a balanced combination of study and leisure.

PLEASE NOTE: Our Special Courses should be booked in conjunction with one of our Italian Language courses.
