The afternoon guided walks were informative and fun. I bought a season ticket for the vaporetto for the month, saved a lot of money and made it easy to hop on and off the boats.

Visit Venezia at night and walk down the whole city in order to discover all of its misteries. Very beatiful city with a lot of kind people!

The classes are fun and teachers become almost like friends. You can go and taste a "spritz" while you talk with your teacher and the other classmates.

I am working in teachers training in university, basically in didactics. I enjoyed very much to "change the side" and to experience myself as a student. I was impressed, how the teachers handled a range of different students, how they motivated students from different countries really to conversate in italian (not, and it would have been much easier, at least during breaks or in the afternoons, in English or german). I also liked the way of teching and learning, how grammer was combined with literature or contents of daily life. The teachers did a very good work!!
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
the afternoon programmes were wonderful, don´t miss the Rialto-Tour and the visit of Frari-church!

The location is beautiful, close to Campo santa Margarita, a typical house, you can also enjoy the breaks. be prepared that it can be cold in winter!
