Marco was an excellent teacher who varied the teaching so that we practiced what we were learning in different ways.

Go on the after school excursions. Make the most of your time here.

Ideally, a language laboratory to practice on my own after class would have been useful. Also, a room set aside for students to meet during the breaks would help the overall student experience.

The school is nice, well organised and motivates students to learn. Be prepared to pay for the manual even if you come for a short period.

The course structure included many "discussion sessions" in groups of 2 or 3 students. These were highly frustrating and generally useless.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Duomo, Davide, Uffizien, the nightlife in Firenze, people start talking with you immediately and are very gregarious, that's why it is very worthwile to go to Firenze and to learn Italian there.
Other comments
The book used is not very good, it contains no grammar, communication classes are very interesting, so you should definitely book them.

the movie class, the teacher is outstanding
Other comments
The school is quite good! Give it a try! One thing maybe: One should stick to the circle of the courses. If one gets into it while the course, all courses have a duration of four weeks, is already a week old or older, one might get difficulties to follow up!
