The program of the course (2 hours grammar + 2 hours free conversation), the teacher (very good!), the other students and the atmosphere at the school. (We were a small group and got to know the others very well)

On the internet it says that all the classes are in the morning, but you are just as likely to get classes in the afternoon. (Mine were from 14-17h30)

The location of the school : In the historic center of Rome, easily reachable by bus. Commodities (study rooms, PC access, class rooms) need to be refreshed and modernized, it is improving regarding class rooms

The school should give the pick-up man at the airport at least a map and some preliminary info for us. Also, on the first day of school,it should organize a meeting with all new students to brief them about what to do, what not to do, where to go, where not to go,how the public transportation system works, etc. This would help integrate the students to the school much faster.

There isn't a library which I was surprised about and the Gustolab is closed (I was there Feb - Aug 09) so there isn't really a place to go to do homework or have access to reading materials. However the enthusiasm of the staff and the effort put in more than makes up for this.

Try to continue speaking Italian after class and where you are living to make the most of the experience. The school was centrally located but accomodation wasn't close. The course is well priced but extras (school tours, extra tuition etc) seemed expensive.

I really enjoyed the 2 weeks I spent there. MY only comment would be that I think a little bit of English from the teacher would help, would increase understanding in a much quicker time. Sometimes you just do not understand no matter how many different ways it is said in Italian. Overall I really enjoyed Dora's lessons.

The private lessons really help with learning the language. The only disadvantage was that when you finished your private classes, all other students already left. There were a bit too much student in my class (13). I had classes in October and there are less students after this month.
