Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Go buy food at Pennymarket, it's cheap and good. View the town from Piazza Michelangelo. It's wonderful.
Other comments: Florence is fantastic but full of tourists, very expensive and - depending where you live - extremely loud. Don't forget earplugs. The weather is still nice well into October.
Very nice teacher and the setting of the school was good

Other comments: For me 2 weeks were just perfect since my accomodation was not very clean. But for learning Italian I would have liked to stay at least a month. That would be perfect for a beginner.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Were the best two months of my life. I recommend to everyone who can, enjoy this unforgettable experience . I'm sure they will love Firenze, the Piazza Santo Spirito, the Machiavelli Center. I left my heart in .... FIRENZE !
Other comments: I extended my 8-week course for another two and unfortunately had to stop for the Christmas holidays and year end. I just have to thank all who work there for their kindness and competence. Especially the teacher Cristiano with whom I had the privilege to meet and mingle . So with Cristina , Helen, Eleni, Vicenza, ... everyone! I miss you all!
