Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Avoid Tourist areas in the city if you would like to practice your Italian! Everyone in the shops and restaurants speak English with you, since there are so many tourists! It takes an effort to make the shopkeepers speak Italian with you!
Other comments
The school is very small. There are only 4 or 5 classes in total. The teachers are very friendly and helpful. You will more likely build a better one-on-one relationship with the instructors and you have a better chance to get help with your language problems, as opposed to a bigger school, with bigger classes. The teaching method is very structured and more concentrated on excercises rather than instructing and showing examples, in the grammar classes. I liked the conversation classes since the topics were interesting and encouraged the students to talk without putting pressure on them. If you are attending the school for a short period of time (1 or 2 weeks) you will find the conversation classes more helpful than the grammar classes.

The fine teachers--this was serious study, which was good! Also, Brenda's trips.
Other comments
Would have been nice to have some evening activities, like dinners out or wine out together. Most of the students were much younger than me, but it would have been nice to socialize. I really progressed in my language--thank you!

The staff is markedly friendly and helpful. The international mixed student mass makes an interesting environment for meeting new friends. The environment for learning is good. The after-school activities are worthwhile, especially the art-history excursions to nearby sights, with professional guides from the school. If one does not improve one's Italian substantially, as well as one's knowledge of the art and history of Florence during one's stay at this school, nobody but oneself is to blame.
