With its 14 km of arch-lined streets, a museum with the second most important Egyptian collection in the world, ancient works of art, internationally renowned film festivals and world famous sports teams, Turin is one of the most fascinating and mysterious cities in Italy.
Underneath its severe Savoyard exterior pulses a heartbeat which is sure to captivate and enchant the visitor.
The traditions of Italy's first ever capital live on in the picturesque cafés and restaurants of the city centre, while a complex industrial fabric and a first class university make it one of the most important technological and scientific hubs in the country.
Situated in an early twentieth-century building in the heart of the “Crocetta” district, one of Turin's most elegant areas and just a short walk from the Polytechnic, AbbeySchool CiaoItaly specialises in teaching the Italian language and culture to students from all over the world.
The institute was created from the multicultural experience and professionalism of the staff of AbbeySchool, which has been operating in the language teaching field with distinction since 1996, and now teaches as many as eighteen languages using only native speaker teachers.
The lessons, organised exclusively for small groups, are entrusted to dynamic and highly qualified teachers who, through a direct method and the use of a wide range of different learning materials, enable students to enhance their communicative and cultural skills in a cheerful and friendly environment.
Moreover, the school proposes numerous recreational activities as well as food and wine workshops which allow the students to get to know the Torinese people and discover the cultural and artistic heritage of the city and its surroundings. Finally, holders of the AbbeyCard can benefit from a whole range of discounts in participating restaurants, hotels and shops.
