The cooking event takes place once a week, usually on Wednesday from 16.00pm to about 20.00pm at the chef’s home – a beautiful apartment in the centre of Sanremo with a large terrace where one can enjoy a nice view of the city. The chef is very experienced, speaks slowly and introduces students into the secrets of Italian cuisine and the Ligurian specialities. The dishes prepared will then be served and accompanied by Italian wines.

The wine tasting takes place at school on Thursday, either from 16.30pm to 18.00pm or from 18.00pm to 19.30pm depending on the period of the year. The participants receive an introduction into the world of Italian wines from a wine expert with a long experience. The event includes the finest and most well-known regional wines, accompanied by typical appetizers of the local cuisine.

THE LANGUAGE LEVELS

The courses are divided into 6 main levels according to the common European Reference Chart for language knowledge (CEFR): basic (A1), elementary (A2), intermediate (B1), high-intermediate (B2) and advanced (C1). The school is aware that students learn at different paces and some might need more or less time to move on to the next level. Therefore some students may advance to the next level during the course. All the participants, at the end of the course, will receive a certificate displaying the course they have attended, the respective dates and the level they have achieved.
In the following section, you will find a brief description of the different levels, according to the common European Reference Chart for language proficiency (CEFR):

The Basic level is for students who do not have any knowledge of the language.
The Elementary level is for students who have a limited comprehension of the language and are already capable of making simple sentences.
The Intermediate level is for introducing students to more complex grammar. There is a focus on vocabulary and this allows the comprehension of more complex topics. At this level the students are encouraged to discuss and debate on several topics of common interest.
The Upper-intermediate level is aimed at those students who already have a good knowledge of the language and good vocabulary. Advanced grammar, phonetics and a specialised vocabulary are the fundamentals to this course. The students have many opportunities to talk about more complex topics.
In order to follow this Advanced course, the students must have an advanced language proficiency in Italian. Several aspects and uses of the language will be explored in order to enhance fluency in conversation.
A C2 level is essentially a native level. It allows for reading and writing of any type on any subject, nuanced expression of emotions and opinions, and active participation in any academic or professional setting.
