Language course in Trieste, Northern Italy

Jump to last reply

Hello all, this will be the second time that I plan to attend a one or two week Italian language course in Italy. The first time was in Torino which was absolutely great. Now I'm thinking of Trieste as my destination around the end of September/ beginning of October.

1. Has anyone of you had any experiences with the language school Instituto Venezia in the Santa Maria Maggiore convent? Please share your experiences with other schools and different destinations with me.
2. All information about Trieste is most welcome. Judging from the pictures it's environment looks stunning. I do realize however that this city historically has a multi lingual and multi cultural background and therefore I hesitate a bit if it would be the right choice for Italian language immersion.
I'm sure that that Italian that is taught at the school itself will be without a specific local accent but will I be able to use it on the streets, in restaurants etc.?

Thanks as ever for your help.
