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.

The Public Transport is not very fun in Rome. Try to get an accomodation near the school so that you can walk if you want.
