A Canadian ex-pat long based in Italy, I have been teaching 25 years and appreciate the pleasures and difficulty of learning a new language and culture; a key to facilitating the learning process is living the lifestyle in an everyday fashion and setting; why the courses are catered to activities: shopping, going to market, strolling about town and seeing the sights; in other words, going about tour business like an Italian.
