Additional information
Positive aspects of school:
There are a maximum of 6 people in a group, it is very convenient, everyone has enough time and attention from teachers. On the other hand, other school´s activities are not divided into groups, everyone comes together. This provides an opportunity to meet other students. It turns out that the social circle is not limited to these 6 people, any student can communicate with all the rest of students who are cuttently at the school, it is very interesting.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
1. Even though someone has already written before me, I will mention it again: take part in the school´s activities. It is not only an additional opportunity to practise, it's really interesting. During the three weeks I was there, I went on several school trips, participated in a culinary workshop, listened to a lecture from two teachers and other. It was very interesting. 2. Speak Italian. Even if you know English. Even with Russian students, there are few of them at the school so the temptation is not great. This rule will be easier to follow if you decide it from the beginning. I had a neighbor from Canada, I know English, but we agreed to communicate only in Italian. We also spoke Italian with a Russian student from my group, which helps a lot. 3. Some walks from the school are long enough. And some can be a little heavy for an office monkey like me. But you can always clarify in advance how long the walk lasts and whether there is a part in the mountains. There are short walks, there are longer ones. People accustomed to physical activity coped with all the walks well.
Other comments:
The school itself made an exceptionally good impression on me. Everything is very warm-hearted there. It is small and as a result everyone knows everyone. Monica currently fulfils the functions of a secretary and director at the same time. If a student has any problem, they can easily communicate directly with the director. Paolo is also there. He will also always help you if you have questions, and if a student forgets words and starts to get nervous (as it often happened to me), he will always say his eternal "calma, calma" and wait until you remember everything, showing with all his appearance that he has time to wait for you. And somehow you really feel calmer :) The location, of course, is worth mentioning separately. The school is located on the very shore in one of the bays. This building is visible on almost every travel postcard. Before or after classes, you can always go swimming, and you can hear the sea during the lessons.

Teachers and location. All the teachers are highly educated not only on the subject but on how to teach, how to explain issues (psychological education). The view from the window is amazing.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
- Take part in the social activities. - Your accomodation will be closer to the school if you contact the school to find it for you instead of looking by yourself. - There is a short break between classes in the morning to have a coffee in the nearby bar.
Other comments:
This was the school's first year in Sestri Levante (there is an old ABC in Firenze), but the organization is really nice. Didn't find any issues to improve.
