The school is amazing. I only regret that I chose to attend afternoon classes since some special activities such as conversational classes, phonetics which were organized and I couldn't go there.

Other comments: Host family : the lady was so sweet, but wasn't a cordon bleu. And I slept in a very bad bed, in an italian council flat with direct views to the railway and with noise associated at 5 am, 20 minutes by bus to the school: it wasn't really the accomodation I was dreaming of.
Good teachers; Good atmosphere in the classes; Good support from management and admin staff at ALCE; Professional content of all lessons; Good internet access facilities.
