Centro Mediterraneo Pintadera

  • Centro Mediterraneo Pintadera, an Italian language school, is based in Alghero on the Mediteranean island of Sardinia. Sardinia is a central point within the Mediterranean sea and as a result there are a number of sites that reflect its history including the Bronze age stone ruins and the Necropolis of Anghelu Ruju, both of which are found close to Alghero. The island is surrounded by coasts and it has a number of interesting geographical features to tempt you for a day away from the city. A 40 minute car drive from the school is Neptune's Grotto, a large marine cave with gems galore, and Capi Caccia the picturesque cliff setting with a lighthouse and amazing views of the area. With its terracotta coloured roofs and its golden walls, Alghero is very picturesque and has a lot on offer ...
    ffer for its visitors. Centro Mediterraneo Pintadera is in a great location within the city, a 3 minute walk from both the Alghero Cathedral, a must see, and the church of St Michaels with a beautifully coloured dome. There are beautiful strolls to be had throughout the city where you can explore all Algero’s hidden gems.

    Centro Mediterraneo Pintadera believes that the best way to learn the Italian language is to find a balance between a stimulating classroom environment and practical classes using the language in real life scenarios around the city. This is apparent from the start and with a maximum student capacity of 8 per class, it is both easy for the school to give each class a personal touch and effective for trips around the city to practise Italian. The school offers a number of interesting cultural classes including AllegraMente - A Vacationer’s delight, which allows its students to learn Italian designed for basic travel and Lingua + Cultural Course, which uses its extra lessons to learn about the history of the area and Sardinia itself. Centro Mediterraneo Pintadera is a perfect mixture of learning a language and experiences a real Sardinian experience.

Additional information
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Alghero is a great city to learn proper Italian. Compared to, let’s say, Sicily, the fact that they were a Spanish enclave works great as they genuinely do speak 2 languages - Sardo and very proper Italian.
Other comments: The schools is very well organised and with a nice homey feel to it. The location is amazing in the city centre. And they do offer a lot of activities if you would like to join in but not in a pushy way.
