Are you ready to learn Italian in Arezzo Italy? Last year I discovered a beautiful corner of Italy! Bella Arezzo! I had such a fabulous time last September with my language learning group and the teachers at Cultura Italiana in Arezzo that I will be returning to this medieval city again. Join me in September for my second language program in collaboration with Paola Testi in September the 1st – 12th.
In Arezzo we will immerse in language and culture. We will taste wine, make pasta with chef Lala, rub elbows with the horsemen of the Giostra – Arezzo’s famous jousting festival and party with the Italians in the street! Literally! We will dance in the streets and sing with the locals the evening before the horse race at the Propiziatorio “Good Luck” dinner.
