I like it
I like it is an Italian language school for foreigners located in the center of Olbia, in northern Sardinia.

I like it is a perfect opportunity that allows you to combine the relaxation of the beach with the study of the Italian language, discover the variety of its beautiful landscapes and also savor the simple and genuine tastes of its cuisine. The school employs mother tongue teachers, graduates and certificates for teaching the Italian language and culture; it is open all year round and is aimed at students of all ages and nationalities.
The Academy was born in 2003, with the awareness that there are many methods for teaching languages but they are not always valid and effective for all students in the same way. Adults too learn and do it like children, according to their own times and ways. The Montessori approach is in fact based on respect for the individual and their individuality; the teacher's task is to ensure that each individual expresses themselves according to their potential. This is why it is important that the classes are not too numerous, that the environment is familiar and that it allows for independent learning, so that everyone can continue their studies without ever feeling inadequate. The goal is to create an environment that brings down what are called "affective filters" that limit active participation in lessons and therefore in practice and learning. But the environment in which to learn is not just the school one, it is the whole city. This is why the Academy offers experiences, moments to be among the local people, to live with them and like them. And for this Cagliari is the perfect city.
