This program is aimed at those who would like to combine the language Standard Course with other aspects of the Italian way of life: food, wine and, last but not least, the Tuscan countryside while having fun and making new friends. "Bread, Wine and Language" has a duration of one week and is held in Lucca. It can be easily combined, at very advantageous prices, with one or more additional weeks of the Standard Course.
Wine tastings will be held by a professional AIS Sommelier. The olive oil tasting will be held by a certified "Maestro d'olio".
"Bread, wine and language in Florence" is a week-long program that combines the city history and gastronomy with a language course. Cooking lessons, tastings, themed cultural visits, food and wine tours to discover the Florentine culinary tradition, which has its roots in an ancient peasant lifestyle, made up of simple, but skillfully blended foods. Wine tastings will take place at a wine bar in the city center.
This course offers a unique chance to combine learning with cooking: you will practise the Italian language in the morning and enjoy cooking typical Tuscan dinners with a very special tutor: an Italian “mamma”! A great opportunity to improve the language in a pleasantly authentic context. This program can easily be combined with one or more additional weeks in the frame of the Standard Course at very affordable prices.
The program is designed for those who love walking and combines the Italian Language and Culture Course in the morning with outdoor afternoon activities to discover the countless features of the Tuscan landscape. Even in the limited space of an afternoon, the peculiar geographical position of Lucca offers the opportunity to experience a hidden and lesser known but fascinating area of the region, off the beaten tracks.
The city, the hills, the river, and Chianti countryside: a territory to be discovered with a week-long program that includes a language course, guided tours, public transportation, and meals. Not only Renaissance, museums and churches. Florence and its surroundings are much more than that: just move away a bit from the city, to find yourself in enchanting areas off the beaten track, and enjoy spectacular landscapes immersed in nature.
The program offers the possibility of knowing two very different aspects that also distinguish the beauties of Tuscany, even the less obvious ones.
In the collective imagination of Tuscany, made of art cities and hilly landscapes, the marine scenery is often not included. Actually, more than a third of Tuscany's perimeter is characterised by the sea: the islands in particular reveal an unexpected face and above all a surprising variety in plants, animals and human settlements.
Capraia Island is part of the National Park of the Tuscan Archipelago, the largest marine park in Italy and the largest protected marine area in Europe.
This program allows you to learn and practise Italian with a personal tutor in an exceptional location: wonderful Capraia, one of the most suggestive islands of the Tuscan Archipelago. Travel, accommodation, excursions and assistance are included and completely organized by Koinè in order to make your stay a truly unique and relaxing experience.
The program combines the Italian Language and Culture course with art lessons. It caters for students who want to learn drawing, or painting, or sculpture, even for well experienced students who want to improve their techniques and learn how to better express their creativity. The workshop is tailor-made and the tutor will follow the progress of each participant, who will have the opportunity to complete a personal portfolio with their works.
For this workshop, Koinè takes advantage of the experience and professionalism of the artist Mario Pachioli.
This course combines the study of the Italian language with the interest in photography at different levels, from amateur to advanced, addressing those who want to learn or improve the technique taking advantage of the architectural subjects and natural beauties that characterize our places.
The lessons of the photography workshop are carefully designed according to individual interests and skills (fashion, landscape, architecture, portrait, etc.) as well as to any professional requirements.
