How Sprachcaffe Began:
Sprachcaffe Languages Plus was founded in 1982 by the Sarno brothers from Rome, with the philosophy "Learn languages and meet people!". Since then, Sprachcaffe has become an international company, sending thousands of students abroad every year to enrol in various language programmes. Additionally, Sprachcaffe offers various travel packages, including tours to both Cuba and Mexico, activity holidays, cooking classes, dance holidays and much more.
Alongside teaching at various language schools, the Sarno brothers held language classes in their own living room in order to fund their studies. The classes often ended with a lavish meal which included a delicious Italian pasta dish served with a quality bottle of wine.
The interest in their classes grew enormously, together with the number of students enrolling in them. During a holiday in Calabria, the brothers even ran an Italian course at a campsite. It was then that their life-changing idea was born.
The brothers then opened the first Sprachcaffe school in Frankfurt in 1983. Their first customers were students who showed great interest in the new communication-orientated style of language teaching. The concept was a great success and soon other schools were opened. The foundations of language travel by Sprachcaffe were now laid.
