WHAT IS IT
We know that from the mists of time to present day, men have always travelled. Pilgrims, merchants, writers, ethnologists and soldiers travelled by foot, boat, horse, train or with their imagination. Each and every one of them having their own motivations and background of experience. Somehow we have learnt to travel since we were kids as well, thanks to poems, letters, reports, chronicles and legends. Now it’s your turn to make your journey into a story and this course must become your starting point to plan a new amazing path.
Dig out a pair of comfortable shoes, a notebook and your passion for writing and discovering the world around you. Enrol in the course and take the following steps:
1.Choose the photo of a destination you particularly love: this will be the starting point of the travel story you’ll write during the course. It could be a photo of your favourite journey or one you took during your last holiday.
2.When you’ll be back home, write a message to an imaginary friend and tell him/her a story about the place you visited. If you will write a real postcard or behind the printed photo, the number of words depends on your handwriting (30 or 50 words should be ok). Don’t forget to sign it!
3.Email your text (with the photo attached) to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you wrote a postcard or behind a printed photo, send it to:

How does Classi-fy work?
You’ll have to follow a weekly timetable of appointments, which can be video lessons or notes to read. You’ll have deadlines to write and share your homework on Classi-fy website. You’ll read what your classmates write and you’ll be able to comment or receive feedback on what you write. You’ll be able to meet each other and talk about the lessons on the forum – ok, we already know you won’t only talk about that, but that’s part of the fun. Sometimes your teacher will post a video in which he publicly analyses the work of the class, but you’ll receive your personal evaluation also from your classmates, during the debate.
What are the technical skill necessary to take part to the course? Do I have to install a special program on my computer?
You’ll mainly work online, therefore all you need is the internet connection. On Classi-fy website you can share your documents, watch the video lessons, download teaching material and text your classmates.
What does it happen at the end of the course?
The class will come to Scuola Holden, in Turin, in order to attend the final lesson and collect your diploma. Eventually you’ll meet everyone and, if everything is right, you’ll have a beer together in Borgo Dora to celebrate.
