“Great Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2009

We signed up for Speak and Stroll after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. It was the highlight of our trip to Sardinia. Elena is so welcoming and patient. Our Itallian is very little and we wanted to learn more and do a bit of cooking. We spent our first session tourning the Old Town of Alghero with Elena. She knows everything! The weather was not great so we ducked into a cafe for cappachino and study.
The next day we did a cooking class. Unbelievable! From taking us to the market to get the freshest food to sitting down and enjoying a typical Sardinian lunch it was perfect! I can not wait to continue learning Italian and get back to cook more!
A great way to expereince Alghero!

“Enjoyable Holiday lessons in cooking and italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2008

Elena, a local teacher runs this school in the centre of old town of Alghero. She offers lessons in Italian for all levels – from beginners to improvers. She also offers cooking classes for authentic seasonal Sardinian and Italian cuisine. Lessons can be one to one or in groups. It’s a great way to meet new people or an opportunity to get lessons at a pace that suits you. You can even just come for a few hours one day during your holiday or arrange for longer more frequent lessons to suit you.

I have been coming here while on holidays in Alghero for the past 3 years. Elena makes learning easy, relaxing and enjoyable. It’s a great way to immerse yourself in local life. When I do cooking lessons we visit the food markets, butchers and cheese shops together to learn about the food and how to ask for it in Italian. Sometimes a visit to the local café for cappuccino is part of the lesson.

Lessons are informal but very professional and a great way of learning about the island of Sardinia. And if you’re very good she might even let you view the town from her terrace which over looks the sea - amazing! I’ve met a few students on a number of occasions so there seems to be a lot of happy customers returning. This is a great addition to your normal sunbathing holiday, I highly recommend Stroll and Speak.
