Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I didn't think the afternoon classes were well-organized. I think my time would have been better spent going to the beach and outings with other students. It is good to stay with a family. It adds a lot of Italian to your knowledge of the language.
Other comments
This was a friendly and easy going place. Although the course is basically communicative with some coverage of grammar, the placement tests are all grammar and should have had an oral part to them. I enjoyed it and would go back again if the dollar wasn't so low compared to the Euro. It is quite expensive there for Americans. Great experience.

Confidently organised, the staff were always willing to take that extra step to ensure that everyone studying at the school was happy. The quality of the teaching was fantastic (Thank you Irma!) and I can truly say I enjoyed each and every lesson. Social activities were readily available but I always felt like it was my choice to go or not, no pushing selling like at some other language schools. Friendly and knowledgeable staff!

Take the cycle route to San Lorenzo in your spare time. Return to San Remo over the Poggio if you are brave!

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Since I live here (Badalucco), I could not participate in the leisure activities. But I could see that the group cohesion was very nice, when the students took part in joint activities. Perhaps this should be recommended. If you book two weeks, it's always very nice to establish some contacts.

People are friendly and welcoming. The teaching was at the level I needed and no time was wasted. My tutor was very committed and I enjoyed my hours with her. The time, for me, went very quickly each day, even though it was 2 hours of conversation with my tutor who was very patient and encouraging.
Other comments
The Sanremo Language school suited me very well since it is situated in Sanremo, a very pleasant town, not too big. I have been at the school before, I was pleased with the teaching and so I had no hesitation in returning there for another course.

We could go on the beach easily. It is very nice and relaxing, and it takes only 5 mins. from the school. I enjoyed going to the sea, to churches, to downtown, to the museum, etc. And it is the most enjoyable experience to spend a time with my new friends who came from various countries.

Be friendly to the other students and get to know each other soon. Meeting new people makes your stay very nice and memorable.

Its a small, relaxed school and because of this your Italian will improve rapidly as you have plenty of opportunity to practice conversation in the classes. The staff were also really friendly and always willing to help you with anything even things outside of the school. I would definitely consider going back again next year. In fact some of the students there this year also did a course there last year.

Teachers are great and learning progress was very good. San Remo (though it has a great reputation) by itself is a bit boring after a while. For long-time students it's not advisable. I had private lessons.

There could be better co-ordination between host families and students expecially since there is likely to be a large language gap to bridge. It would help avoid some misunderstandings.
