The beauty of Dilit is that there are students of all ages and nationalities, this variety allows you to meet many people ... collaboration between teachers and different ways of teaching help both in the studio ... the social and cultural activities are not to be missed!

If you are a teenager, it's your 1st time in Rome and you just want to have fun, it's your school, because it is completely dispensable as such.

They do not start at Zero level. This is what I requested and I was greatly disappointed. I feel I wasted my money and time. The school should start with basic grammar and vocabulary for Zero level and be kind enough to explain the 'why' of something in the student's native language. Consistently repeating something in Italian when the student does not understand Italian is fruitless.

I liked the fact that there were people from all over the globe and that the method of teaching was almost informal because it allowed me to make significant progress in the learning process.The teacher I had was very dynamic and energetic, which made lessons easier. The rest of the staff was always very helpful. I loved the lunch area because I could eat there a good meal for a cheap price.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
If you are the type of person that learns from a very structured- by the book method, you might get a bit frustrated by the program at Dilit. But if you are one of those who is willling to go with the flow and challenge yourself, I definitely recommend Dilit. Also, wonder about the school activities; the ones I went to were great; unfortunately, they get cancelled if there are not many people, so if you don't want to miss out, ADVERTISE them on school with everyone you see! It worked for us:)

Participating in an advanced-level-course, I found it particularly helpful that emphasis was put on making the students speak among themselves - rather than only with the teacher. Moreover, the staff at the school were extremely helpful and friendly. A friend of mine lost his purse and the school willingly lent him some money.

I took a homecooking class, which was fairly expensive (80 € for three hours), but good value nevertheless: the cooking was good, we had some wine and it was an excellent opportunity to practise one's Italian.

I loved the international environment of the school. It was full of students from all over the world, and once in a higher level, italian was the language of communication between the students as well (rather than english, which was great for learning). There are also possibilities to meet Italians who are learning English in the school, so some free practice! The teachers were absolutely awesome, all well trained and very entertaining. One negative thing might be that the curiculum is rather repetitive, so be prepared for some boredom if you go to classes for more than 2 months. However, the standard of teaching is outstanding, and would definitely recommend this school to everyone!!

Don't miss the various walks and seminars organised by the school, especially in the first few weeks of your stay. It's a great way to get your bearings and meet more people!

the best school I've ever had, because the teachers are very motivated and the lessons are very diversified; you really have to talk in Italien as you're often working in groups or doing some games, etc. but the leisure activities (for example tours trough the city which were very interesting)were often cancelled
