Looking to work in Italy, but don’t speak Italian or know where to start?
I found out about a place that gives you productive mornings and free afternoons & weekends!! How does that sound to ya?
Last week I had the pleasure to meet Nicola Russello, founder of Charisma Communications, a cool linguistic agency that believes in full immersion right here in Veneto. As you know, that’s totally TFR’s style: Doing as the Venetians Do.
This unique school just 20 minutes outside Venice is perfect for people who want to enter the EU-Italian workforce or want to learn how to slowly integrate into Italian life. They take care of requesting your visas for the 2-8 week programs, teach you Italian, provide you private double rooms in a Veneto villa (yup! and that includes breakfast and lunch too), and even help you network if you’re looking to stay after to work in Italy! All courses (except Italian class, of course) are held in English and last from Monday-Thursday just in the mornings. That means you get to come and hang out in Venice or take day trips elsewhere after school is over. There are no age requirements and courses are customized to your needs based on individual/group interests.
If you prefer to have a faux Under the Tuscan Sun getaway to just take in the culture, they also have painting, culinary, wine tasting and architecture courses! Tell ’em Bianca sent you so they can take even better care of you.
The next course starts on July 16, 2012 and ends three weeks later on August 10, 2012.
Cost? That ranges on the program you enroll in, but they normally costs €1200 for tuition & fees, plus €1000 if you live in the mainland villa. Click here for more cost information.
Important: Be sure to tell them Bianca Reyes sent you on the application to get some freebies!
This is precisely the important information I’d been searching for. Incredible blog. Very inspirational! Your posts are so good and also detailed. The links you come with are also very beneficial as well. Many thanks 🙂

Try Gelateria Alaska!
It’s always a plesarue to hear from someone with expertise.
It’s siinkng! Yes, it’s true that Venice is siinkng historically,a0about seven centimeters eacha0centurya0for the past 1,000 years. But it’s not only settling into its marshy base, the grand Italian city is also falling victim to rising water levels, which are really compounding the problem.Founded across 117 islands in a marshy lagoon during the fifth century AD, Venice was built on a foundation made out of millions of wooden pilings sharpened poles that were driven through the mud and into the sandy clay underneath. On of the pilings, oak planking was placed, and then came layers of marble. Then on top of the marble, the city’s buildings and walkways were constructed.As as that sounds, the big problem with the whole siinkng thing came as the aquifers under the city were drained, and the water no longer worked as pillows to prop up Venice. (Artesian wells were banned in the 1960s to keep this from becoming an ongoing problem, but much of the damage wasa0alreadya0done.)Sites to seeThe siinkng of Venice, Italy, has been the subject of much study and speculation as well as many articles, books and TV programs. So in lieu of regurgitating a lot of this material, we’re going to have you check out the source material instead.But, before we do, one thing: If you have the chance to visit Venice, take it. It’s an amazing city, and there really no promises as to how long it will be around in its present state.Nova: Discovery Channel/Planet Green: BBC Travelwise: National Geographic:
But your work is certainly wowhlrtihe and the idea is good. Investing more professionalism in these kind? of activity is necessary due to its academical level and altogether importance.These are only the best intentions and friendly advices from a university board of professors,thank you
Burano has lace and all of that. It is one of those places that could be vtisied in about an hour.Murano is a little more interesting to walk through (especially the residential neighborhoods)In Venice I recall some bar that sold absinthe and I am trying to remember the name of the gelato place that I really really liked. (considered some of the best in the city)For dinner La Zucca is good. Vegetarian and meat options and a dandy pumpkin flan that is just terrific for a starter.
there is hard to find guidance there, even for a mapso be sure you take a tvarel guide with you, maybe even two onesalso, the schedules in tvarel guides might be different than what you find on the spot or they might be in renovation, closed etc. So either call them(if you know Spanish) or go EARLY.I used Frommer’s Peru Guide because they give interesting comments Was this answer helpful?
