What we like about the school

  • Excellent rating of student apartments
  • Rooftop terrace

La Giara

  • La Guiara is a small Italian language school situated in the heart of Mola di Bari and aims to create a home away from home for its students. The port town of Mola di Bari is the perfect Italian location to fully immerse yourself in the local language as there is not a large amount of tourism making it easy to practise Italian outside the classroom. The school is a ten minute walk from the Cathedral and the main Piazza XX Settembre and due to the size of the town it is easy to explore its streets by foot. The Mola di Bari central train station is under 15 minutes from the school and from here students can explore the surrounding area including Bari, the closest city. Although small, it is a lively town and throughout the summer there are many village fetes depicting local life. ...
    The school is in a quaint building and has a library, a balcony and a rooftop terrace along with its air conditioned classrooms. Students can choose from the following courses; intensive course, standard course, private courses or semi-private courses in Italian. The style of teaching in the classroom is interactive in small group sizes of maximum 8 students. Learning communication in Italian is essential to improve and the teachers use everyday scenarios to encourage students to do so inside and outside the classroom. 70% of students are over 35 years of age and benefit from the slower pace of the town and the interaction with the locals. La Guiara organises activities on various days of the week for its students to join and to ensure there is something for everyone these range from aesthetic, cultural and nature outings. Along with local trips the school offers its students the chance to join an excursion to Castel del Monte, Sassi di Matera, Polignano a Mare or Alberobello.

Anne Cæcilie : "It is really difficult for me to do the rating. I came to the school to do a group course. It turned out that I was the only student in the entire school. That was so far from what I had booked so I ended the course at once. I hope that this will never happen to anyone else. As far as I know, there were no activities offered by the school. "

Additional information
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: If you are looking for colorful nightlife it might not be a place for you.
Other comments: For me the best school in Italy (i have been to three different schools). Apart from language learning it gives you a possibility to get to know the culture and lifestyle of the locals.
