If you are interested in the news on a national and international level and would like to read, watch and talk about the latest events then "Let's talk about the news" will appeal to you. Before each of the 5 meetings the participants will choose a news topic to either read or watch and this will then be discussed together. The principle is that students are given the opportunity to practice their English in a natural and interesting setting.Do you like cooking? Then improve your French at ‘Cuisiner en français’, where we discover traditional french cuisine. Under the supervision of our French teacher, you will learn to prepare tipical dishes on each of three evenings. Afterwards we will be sitting down together and sampling our efforts, chatting all the while in French!

Over the last 30 years Aldo Mazza has made a name for himself encouraging the two South Tyrolean language groups to live together rather than just to coexist and for this he has been decorated by the Province of Tyrol. 100 years after the region was divided following the First World War, the award of the decoration to Aldo Mazza, a native of southern Italy, has a special significance. He came to South Tyrol some 50 years ago and with the founding of the Alpha & Beta Cooperative created an organisation that has always aimed at promoting intercultural communication and multilingualism. Today the cooperative runs both a language school and a publishing house. Really living together is an art, with language skills being only the first step along this path. Aldo Mazza's decades-long endeavours to achieve this have received official recognition with this decoration of the Province of Tyrol.
