Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Student accommodation is good. Be careful of family accommodation. Mine was not acceptable. Bit of a shock really. Also I was the only student in my class and was only told this on my first morning. It worked out well as the teacher was excellent but it would have been better and perhaps less challenging to be part of a group. I did feel a bit alone as students in the other class had excellent Italian.
Other comments
Paid for 2 weeks B&B and evening meal, left for student accommodation for second week which was above the school and much better (space wise), but of course had to buy my own food etc. I did ask about some monetary refund, but was told that this was not possible. I do believe that for goodwill alone this would have been a nice gesture. Even € 30.00 which is not a lot seeing as I paid over €1000.00 for two weeks.

It's a small school with all associated advantages (very friendly, personal, cozy atmosphere) and disadvantages (number of parallel levels).

The oregano-gathering in the mountains turned out to be both a great nature experience as well as an entertaining contact with locals. Very worth it!
Other comments
The school is small and thus very familiar. The disadvantage of this is the small number of language levels. When I was in Milazzo, I was the only participant at an advanced level. They offered me to get time reduced individual lessons or to attend classes on the next lowest level (which I've done since I also appreciated the contact with other students). The teacher made great efforts to design the lessons in a way that I also benefited, but from a genuine C1 level I would have had more.

Attend the play at Tindari. Don't miss the trip to Capo Milazzo. Take a cooking course. Don't miss anything at this excellent school.

I LOVED this school!!! I've attended other schools throughout Italy, and this one tops them all. The entire staff is top-notched and devoted to tailoring the instruction to your needs. The classes are small and intense. Franco, the founder and director, and his partner, Francesca, are directly involved with the daily activities, hosting students in their home and taking them on trips. Everyone is treated like family. Lots of opportunities to practice Italian in Milazzo, where people are friendly and kind. The town is gorgeous, surrounded on all sides by the sea. The student apts are well-furnished and are located right above the school, so you just roll out of bed and into class. I hope to go back!!!

The staff were very friendly and helpful not only in lectures even in giving info about the city as well. We were picked up from the train station and delivered straight to our accomodation. Also, Milazzo is a very good place to learn italian because there are very few tourists, and few english-speakers, so what you learn in class has to be applied in real life right away.
