Welcome to One World Italian school!

Our Mission

Our mission is to offer you an informative and fun Italian language and culture learning experience all year round, in our school and/or online.

Who We Are

One World was founded by David Tomkinson and Andrea Alcoba in 2001. Neither of them are Italian but both of them love Italy and have experience learning Italian. They know what works and what doesn't work when learning this beautiful language.

When it comes to teaching, everyone is, of course, native-speaker Italian. Our team includes Veronica (back in 2013 David said to her "Try doing a few videos for YouTube and let's see what happens...") and the highly experienced, and highly rated, Noemi, Assunta, Vanessa and Emanuela. Sofia is our youngest teacher and she will also take you on a trip around the Castello, the historic part of the city, on your first day.

Our courses in Cagliari

Here at our school in Cagliari, we offer a complete study holiday programme with Italian lessons every morning and with many optional extracurricular activities including cooking lessons, trips to Roman sites and the Blue Zone.

We are situated in an ideal location overlooking the port and near to restaurants, shops and the bus and train stations. We have a network of friendly families all within walking distance of the school and if you prefer there are many quality hotels, B&Bs and private apartments all near the school.

Our Online Platform

When you can not be with us in person, you can find us all on One World Online School. You can learn in your own time with Veronica's video courses combined with private lessons on a subscription course. You can choose the course which suits you best, ranging from private lessons once a month (Silver Plus) to 8 times a month (Platinum).

For us, you are not just someone who comes to our school for 2 or 3 weeks and leaves. We are here to accompany you on your Italian learning journey for as long as you want us to.
