I went to stay with Elena as a last effort to become fluent in Italian. For 7 or 8 years I have attempted to learn by going to day time and evening classes, reading self help books, listening to tapes and CDs [La Camera dei Segreti is recommended] and many novels [one or two to the end]. I ended up being able to read Corriere della Sera but not to understand what people were saying in Italian and completely incapable of expressing myself. This was not a good situation when I have an Italian girlfriend whose family does not speak English.
I decided to stay with a family, brush up my Italian not speak English. Elena's was the family. She provided me with good food and wine, Italian lessons and conversation, and an excellent room with television [used, of course, for speech comprehension]. The weather not good and therefore TV and books were used more than expected. However Elena one day took me on a trip up the Brembo valley on the search for Triassic reptiles. We visited Zogno Museum and saw the fossils which had been found in the area. We did not look for them since it is illegal to collect fossils in Italy - they are allowed to weather away to dust.
At the end of the holiday or rather work I did feel more confident and more capable both in understanding and speaking. I succeeded in taking a big step on the way to becoming fluent. All it need now is more practice!

I've been learning French for a long time and my standard is pretty high. I've been on Eurolingua homestays twice, and they both exceeded my expectations by a long way. Once I was in Paris with Claude, once with Caroline in Cabestany near Perpignan. Both are excellent teachers with a lot of experience and both completely charming and welcoming. The experience of total immersion in the language and local life cannot be beaten. I had four hours a day of tuition, but in addition I lived with them and their families and shared their lives.

I would recoomend this to anyone.

Anne from Eurolingua was also extremely accommodating with my last minute changes of plan.

My week in Boissano exceeded my expectations. While the immersion experience was challenging, Daniela was warm, patient and encouraging and I left more confident and comfortable in my ability. Every day included a unique experience that gave me a deeper appreciation of Liguria and Italian culture. A drive into the mountains for lunch and a local dance festival. Making fresh pasta together. Watching Italian films at night. And, the highlight, a play that I actually understood enough to laugh at the jokes and respond correctly during a terrifying audience participation moment. Every day I also had some time to explore on my own, or relax at the beach. All in all, a memorable experience that I will always treasure.
