Classes are generally held in the morning from 9.00 am. Each lesson lasts 50 minutes. The School reserves the right to organize courses also in the afternoon in case of unavailability of classrooms or other concomitant lessons in the morning.
Every Monday morning, the course starts with a placement test.
On the basis of the results of the test, the School will operate in a totally discretionary and autonomous way the composition of the classes according to the different levels.
In the rare event that there is only one student per class, the 4 group lessons per day will be halved and transformed into individual lessons (from 4 per day to 2). If there are only 2 students per class at a given level, the number of lessons will be reduced from 4 to 3.
On 15 August (Ferragosto, a public holiday in Italy) the school is closed.
The booking fee of €150 cannot be refunded in case of cancellation.
Italiano in Riviera does not have its own accommodation but acts as an intermediary between students and owners of apartments and families who decide to host the same students of the School.
Once you arrive in Alghero it is not possible, after making the reservation, to change the type of travel and accommodation previously chosen.
The School undertakes to carry out a selection action within the offer of accommodation always trying to ensure the best conditions for the students themselves but cannot be held in any way responsible in case of disputes between the two parties (event never occurred so far).
It is not possible at all, especially during the summer period and especially during the busy months of July and August, to ask to change accommodation once it has been assigned to the students.
All students are required to pay a deposit of € 100 (to guarantee any damage) at the beginning of their stay in Sardinia. The students themselves are required to keep their room and the shared parts of the apartment tidy and clean. At the end of the stay, the hotelier will return the entire deposit, unless he has to retain it as compensation in case of failure to take care of their accommodation and damage to the interior or objects of the same.
Arrivals & Departures
The day of arrival in the accommodation is the Sunday before the Monday of the beginning of the courses. The day you have to leave the accommodation is Saturday (the day after the end of the lessons, which is Friday).
In agreement with the school, arrival and departure are also possible on days other than those established. In these cases it will be necessary to pay a fee ranging from 20 to 45 euros (depending on the period) for each extra day spent in the accommodation.
The payment of the balance of the course and accommodation must be paid by bank transfer before the start date of the courses and must be documented by bank transfer receipt. For security reasons for the students themselves, it is not possible to pay by credit card.
It is possible to pay the balance in cash even but not later than the first day of class.
