Learn Italian close to the beach at Solemar Academy's Italian language school in Sicily, Italy.
Why study at Solemar Academy
Solemar Academy of Cefalù is definitely the place for a youthful and dynamic audience. The town is distinguished by its renowned tourist hospitality, beautiful beach and vibrant summers, but Cefalù is much more. It is a cultural and artistic centre nestled in a unique landscape. Art and music festivals animate the town all year round. The sea, the “Rocca”, the Madonie nature reserve, the Aeolian Islands - which are less than two hours away by boat - the splendid Arabic and Norman style Cathedral, and many other things make Cefalù the ideal place to stay for your language holiday.
The biggest strength of our school is, without a doubt, our team: young, international, lively and, of course, very knowledgeable. The methods used by our teachers range from “task-based” to the communicative method. All are excellent at giving students tools to learn the Italian language in an intuitive, friendly manner.
The courses we offer vary in duration and intensity. The survival course provides the language tools needed to survive in a foreign country. The standard course consists of 20 hours per week in a group setting. The combination course is the standard course with an additional 5 hours per week of individual lessons. The business course is designed to be more demanding (this course is officially recognized as Bildungsurlaub in almost all the German Länder) and consists of 20 hours of group lessons plus 10 hours of lessons with focus on business, culture and practices per week. Lastly, it is also possible to build an individual package based on your particular needs and how many hours you desire.
In Cefalù classes are usually held in the morning at our school on Via Fermi, which is a stone’s throw away from the beach. The school has recently been renovated turning it into an open inviting place, where our students feel at home.
Activities and accommodation
We offer a large variety of leisure activities (boat trips, excursions, guided visits to archaeological sites, wine tasting, cooking classes, etc.) and different types of lodging to meet all of your needs, as single and double rooms in apartments with other students, entire apartments at our beautiful holiday house Villa Caterina, apartments in the historical center of the town, hotel rooms and more.
