Very friendly. Staff very helpful. I can't evaluate my own language progress as I was only there for 2 weeks. I only took part in one social activity, but that was very good.

The teachers are excellent. The class size was small - 6 the first week, 4 the second week, therefore individual conversation was optimal.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I recommend the individual class to reinforce what is taught in the group lesson or get specialized instruction. Do not miss the tours with Bruno. Naples is a great city with a fascinating history, 1st class museums and great food everywhere. Easy and fun to explore by foot or public transportation.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Be aware that the school, most classrooms, and school apartments do NOT have air-conditioning and summer in Napoli is brutal!!! Also, whatever floor they say your apartment is on, add 1 and then double it.

Other comments
The quality of teaching depends (as always) on the commitment of the teacher. When the teachers change (as it was the case in my class), you have the chance to get a top teacher, of which there are a few at this school.
