Learn Italian while you relax on the sunny Italian Riviera. Poliedro is the language school for those in love with the Italian language and prides itself on its friendly family atmosphere. A team of qualified and welcoming professionals is available to offer students all the assistance they may require during their stay.
Emphasis is on the oral aspect of the language and classes do not exceed 8 students. Standard, intensive and individual courses are available at all levels. San Bartolomeo al Mare: San Bartolomeo al Mare lies at the centre of a wide bay, between Diano Marina and Cervo Ligure, in a landscape dominated by the azure sea. Our town is famous for its climate, the long sunny days, and its average of 300 fine-weather days a year. The average temperature in winter is 15°, and in summer 30°.
You can relax on the beach, explore the inland area with its old churches surrounded by centuries-old olive trees, or maybe practise a sport. There is a surfing and sailing school; various walking or cycling routes; and tennis courts and golf courses less than half an hour away.
From the very first day of class, we speak only Italian. But don’t worry! Our teachers are specially prepared to communicate in a way that is both fun and easy to understand thanks to our methods and teaching materials, developed over our fifteen years of experience. While oral communication is the main objective of our courses, it is also necessary to touch upon areas of Italian grammar. This will by no means be dull though.
We include newspaper articles, audiovisuals and entertaining games to encourage our students to get to know each other, engage in discussion and fall in love with Italy. The maximum number of students per class is eight, though there are often only four or five: enough space for everyone to participate and get to know each other. What do we ask of you? Only a little curiosity, enthusiasm and group spirit.
