My 10-week language course at the Babilonia language school in Taormina allowed me to improve my Italian in a truly magical setting. When the weather is nice, the classes take place in a beautiful garden lined with flowers. During breaks, small loudspeakers hidden at the foot of the palm trees play a relaxing music. The learning activities are varied and original and encourage us to use the language in speaking and writing. In addition to the classes, the school offers seminars on various topics, film viewings and concerts. I also discovered many places in Sicily thanks to the excursions organised by the school every Saturday (hike on Mount Etna or Vulcano, visit of one of the Aeolian islands, visit of cities like Syracuse, Noto, Modica, Ragusa…) Finally, living in Taormina is very pleasant as the inhabitants are friendly and give you a very warm welcome!
