Insider tips about what future students should not miss: I would recommend to stay in the schools apartments. Take part in the excursions! They are very interesting and accompanied by professional guides.
Other comments: For me, as a beginner, it was rather difficult to communicate all the time only in Italian (It is the schools' philosophy) But the staff will speak German as well as English if it is necessary. On the other hand, through this way and after just one week, I can understand and read much more Italian now then before!
it`s a little school,the teacher are very friendly and funny and it was a good organisation of the classes
