My son Julian, a sophomore in high school, was having some difficulty with Italian. We began a thorough internet based search for options to enable him to improve his grammar and language fluency. Despite the distance, we decided on an overseas language school and chose Pintadera in Alghero, Sardinia.

We contacted Nicola and immediately felt completely at ease that Julian would benefit, gain competency and confidence, and have a fantastic time to boot! Nicola was instrumental in arranging sailing and cooking classes which Julian still talks about almost a year later. In summary, Julian had a fantastic time, enjoyed idyllic Alghero, and now has a 90 in Italian! We have nothing but the highest accolades and strongly recommend Pintadera for beginners as well as advanced Italian speakers!
