Do take part in the after school activities even if it doesn't sound like your thing. They are very informative.

The stay in Florence was a hit. The school is great! Small, but very personal. I was very satisfied with the size of the groups and the quality of the lessons. I went from A1 to B1 in 3 weeks. Incredibly nice teachers and staff create a nice learning atmosphere.

All afternoon activities with Marco are great. You will learn a lot about little secrets of the city that you cannot find in travel guides ...

I did not like the fact that the owner was not notified of my arrival and that I had to wait outside all day until he arrived. Also, internet never worked and the school's bar was never open.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I booked lessons in the afternoon which are different to those in the morning. The main subject of the morning is talking, teamwork, little grammar while we used to do writing in the afternoon. The combination of the two is great!
Other comments
The teachers are all very nice and they do a great thing in teaching. It's recommendable to talk italian even during the breaks. You really lose the fear of talking. It's also much fun to go out and do some interviews. Thanks a lot to Marco, Cristina and Cosetta, not to forget Leonardo, chief of the cafeteria, who cooks deliciuos lunches!!
