Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I was thrown into a course already in progress. I felt the method of education did not meet my needs or expectations. I had only one week to learn conversational Italian and we wasted too much time on the grammar of La, Lo, il, le, etc. This is not essential for speaking to be understood. I was not pleased with listening to recordings of rapid speaking Italians, over and over again, and being told to "focus" and try harder to understand. I did not like so much paper work in class, at the expense of conversation.
Other comments
I did not like that the students were scattered all over town, I had hoped that we would be housed nearby and form friendships. At night I was very alone, had no internet in the house, and no one to spend time with. As a result I was not very happy.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
The school is TOO small. So there are different levels in one groups, to the detriment of the students. The progress is very slow (Passato Remoto for one week ...) to encourage the students to extend their course. The activity program is very poor. The school is very expensive.

pizza places are full of tourists or typical, even if locals go there. might be interesting to take students to experience the aperitivo (there are many nice places for this), now that the weather is nice there is bar bianco at parco sempione, and other venues with gardens

One of our teachers was excellent and never moved on until all of her class was on board with what she was trying to teach. The other had less patience I felt and moved on regardless. I did not absorb as much on the days I had her.
