There should be more Italian culture and history in language courses, more done to attract older, more advanced students - and a greater variety of guided walks !

Other Students! Excellent group of people. The Instructors were quite nice too. The location of the school was pretty good and convenient as well.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
It is better to start the school on a week where new course start instead of a random week. It provides a better chance of meeting people and making friends, since there are a lot of new students who are looking to meet others on those days.
Other comments
The housing options should be evaluated better. The housing offered to me had only 1 bathroom for 6 people!! It makes it very difficult in the mornings since everybody is rushing to go to school at the same time. About the school- the level of students should also be evaluated better. Many of the students were placed at a lower or higher level instead of the right one. The test given on the first day is not good enough to judge properly, it should be replaced with a better one.

All the teachers.It is nice to learn Italian with people from all over the world.
Other comments
Most of the families do not have much time to spend with the students. So communication between students and family members are often rare. One of the reasons is that most of them work full-time. If you like to live in a quiet place staying with a family is the right choice but in order to improve the language I recommend living with other students.

I had one week of private lessons and I really liked that I had 2 different teachers during that week. Every evening the school organized different programmes like guided tours to a special part of Rome which you don't find in the usual guide books, or film evening, or literature lessons for free and the weekend they organize trips to places in the area surrounding Rome (this costs little money and are well organized).
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
In the school there is a nice little bar where one can have coffee (€0,70) etc and even for lunch they offer 3 different simple meals... I mention this, because the host families also offer breakfast - but as they don't have the same breakfast "mentality" as we have for €3,5 they often only offer coffee and biscuits so one could save money by eating at the school!

Classes are based on conversation and a lot of teamwork with your classmates, which is nice, so you get to know them. A bit of a do it yourself attitude. I learned the most in every day life though, meeting friends. The city is just beautiful.

Afternoon courses are not great if you already have a reasonable level.
Other comments
It was great to be able to spend 6 weeks in Rome, the school was good but progress was slow - probably because the higher your level the more difficult the progress becomes. I would recommend this course and do it again...

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
do not go to Rome in August. the city is full of tourists, half the restaurants, bars, clubs are closed for vacancies. so July or September is just perfect. (and less hot!)
