Medium sized, non-touristy city that has everything you need. Excellent variety of afternoon activities from free seminars to movies to cooking lessons to tours of nearby cities or even Pompeii. Regular weekly lesson structure with unit tests on Fridays.

wide range of language levels within one class was frustrating at times.

A visit to the tourist office to be notified on cultural offer of the city the school giving no information about it and even seems not to be informed of what is happening in its own city!
Other comments
Leisure activities are expensive, unattractive and almost exclusively focused on the " food." Some examples: the visit of the city tells us less than we would have done with only a brief guide to the hand (the oldest church was closed and the school has not organized a special opening for us); the screen for movies is a television screen and the school has not managed to install it properly; Furthermore, the screening was preceded by no prior explanation; we really felt the school staff did as little as possible. I can compare because I was staying in Tropea last year. There, the staff was committed much to make us love the place. I only have seen the director of Salerno for a few seconds. In Tropea, the manager was always present, knew each one of us. We have not received either practical information about the city (bus tickets, etc). Well, except as a result of culinary apprenticeship excursions, no common meal or drink was organized to allow new students to know the others (in Tropea, two hours of introduction followed by a shared meal). In short, this aspect of the school was disappointing and it is even more distressing that Salerno is a fascinating city that deserves much more than its reputation.

The location of the school was very convenient. The facilities were fine.
Other comments
The school seemed overly interested in making money from excursions. The afternoon excursions were over-priced and not worth the money. The front office staff were not very helpful or friendly.

They should offer another teaching method for students who only stay for 1 or 2 weeks.
