Centro Fiorenza - IH Florence

The language school Centro Fiorenza - IH Florence was founded in Florence, Italy in 1982. The school's premises are located right in the historic city centre, in a seventeenth century palace with classrooms overlooking the river Arno offering a delightful view. The left side of the river, where the school is situated, is an area of the town that still keeps an authentic and very 'Florentine' flair with its art-craft laboratories, antique shops and art schools.

The school address is: Via Santo Spirito 14, 50125 - Florence (Italy).

Other comments: The school is quite good! Give it a try! One thing maybe: One should stick to the circle of the courses. If one gets into it while the course, all courses have a duration of four weeks, is already a week old or older, one might get difficulties to follow up!
Marco was an excellent teacher who varied the teaching so that we practiced what we were learning in different ways.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Go on the after school excursions. Make the most of your time here.
Other comments: Ideally, a language laboratory to practice on my own after class would have been useful. Also, a room set aside for students to meet during the breaks would help the overall student experience.
The atmosphere, the teachers, small groups, interesting activities.
