Would you like to give your students the opportunity to attend an Italian course for beginners? If so, why not register your class for a language course at the Youth Sports Centre in Tenero. The course is a joint project between the Department for Education, Culture and Sport of Canton Ticino, the Swiss public broadcasting organization RSI (Radiotelevisione svizzera di lingua italiana), Migros Culture Percentage and CST.

The course has two goals:

  • To help young CST guests use Italian in simple, everyday situations, e.g. when placing an order, making a purchase or asking for information.

  • To familiarize guests with the Italian language, pique their interest in this third national language, and thus pave the way for further courses and more in-depth language learning. 

The course lasts five days and includes two lessons per day (1½ hrs). Dates by arrangement. Some of the costs are covered by the project. Groups pay just CHF 200 for 15 children.
The course can be booked using the registration form for residential courses.  
Classes who register for an Italian course have a greater chance of being accepted for the sports week at CST.
