make sure to get to the right level of the group, even if at first you are wrongly allocated. I proactively asked to change my level to a higher one and after a couple of days it worked out.

Positive aspects of school
The school was well organised and clean. However, I was not in a suitable class. I was not tested for my level and I was lost from the very beginning. After two weeks of falling farther and farther behind I asked for individual tutoring. I was given that, but at an additional cost. I blame myself for not researching more fully what "immersion" really meant. I thought I was going to learn to speak Italian and instead it seemed like a class for fluent Italian speakers on the subject of grammar.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Make sure you can already speak and understand Italian before enrolling in the school or you will be lost. There are other ways to learn Italian from the ground up and these methods should be used first. It was very lonely to spend a month with no English speaking friends. I was afraid to go on excursions because I didn't know what was going on.
Other comments
The director and teachers tried to help and seemed sincerely concerned. It was like they were surprised I couldn't understand Italian. My individual teacher, Catia, was wonderful and made the rest of the course bearable. I will not be returning to Italy for Italian as I had planned.

The atmosphere is very casual. Everyone knows everyone, and there is a real attempt to make the experience pleasant in as many ways as possible.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
If Stefania is doing her walkabout tours on Friday afternoons, by all means go! She really knows what she's talking about, she's a hoot, and she's brilliant at speaking slowly enough and simply enough that even low-level students can understand her.
Other comments
Overall, my experience was very good. I may well go back. However, I think they need a larger facility. Some of the classrooms are not really big enough for the larger classes, they really could use a library/listening lab, and there are not enough rest rooms! A footnote to "Distance from accommodation to school": I was moved from one homestay to another after one month (arranged in advance). This was not a problem particularly. The second place was 15-20 minutes by public transport, but I chose to walk, which was 50 minutes.

The accommodation was very poor: the host mother had little knowledge of english, there were no drinking glasses, it was not allowed to stay in the kitchen or in the bathroom for a while, the water was only lukewarm and had no pressure in the water line, the beds are visibly worn out and too short, the room is too small for 2 people, there is only one desk for 2 students and poorly positioned boxes. Toilet paper has to be bought by yourself. The room was constantly warm.

Try to find housing close to the school. There's a metro stop across the street and the Old City is several stops away.

I think there could be improvement in the techniques used in the conversation class. This is my weak area, and I don't think I improved much. I've attended 4 different schools and have the same complaint about all of them. The teachers do most of the talking, which doesn't help the students improve their skills.
