Welcome to our centre ESL Ascona (13-17 years)

Ideally situated only a stone’s throw away from the small streets of the old town and the quays lining the banks of Lake Maggiore, ESL’s Ascona course centre is located in the magnificent Collegio Papio. The main building, an entirely renovated 16th century cloister, leans against the modern school complex that houses the classrooms and bedrooms. The whole structure is perfectly adapted to language study stays for teenagers, including comfortable classrooms fitted with overhead projectors and audiovisual supports, an auditorium, a computer area with free internet access, a games room offering pool and table football as well as football pitches, basketball and volleyball courts to practise your favourite sports.

During your Italian language course in Ascona, take advantage of the extensive facilities of our ESL campus in order to improve your language skills and have a great time with other students from all over the world!

Effective supervision

Our experience of language study stays for juniors naturally leads us to pay very particular care to the supervision of the participants.

Present and available from the first to the last day, our team of specially trained ESL monitors gives the required assistance and watches over everything. Adapted to the age of the participants and to the type of accommodation booked, this attentive and effective supervision manages to remain discrete. It allows for everyone to enjoy their stay in complete freedom and security.

Pocket money service, the pluses of ESL

A “pocket money” service is provided in all of the residential course venues. Functioning on the principle of a bank, this service allows students to withdraw or deposit money every day if they so wish.
