Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
If you are ready to study grammar for 4 hours, this school is a great choice for you. They give you home work and then just check it during the lesson. The teachers are young. Do not expect to get any books, they'll just give you printouts during the lesson. The school organized very few free activities.... to meet other students. Do not agree to live at Mura delle Cappucine 38 ... it's not really clean there and they won't prepare your room for your arrival. Ask for rooms with windows that overlook the courtyard, not the roadway.
Other comments:
Host administrators (director) of the school are very nice.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
Genoa is a hilly city. Take all the ascensori and funicolari to see what is up there. There's lots to discover. Do things that you normally do at home such as going to sporting clubs or swing dancing. It's a good way to meet locals, make new friends and practice your Italian. Maybe you can even do something you've not done before.
Other comments:
There is an elevator to the school in the building.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
The city has so much to see and if you get the 40 euro museum pass you will get to many of them. The Palazzi Rolli tour that is arranged by the school gets you into many of the places that a tourist isn't permitted.
Other comments:
The school has great accommodations that they arrange and if you have any problems they quickly fix them.

I was there for 2 weeks in November/December. Therefore, the classes were very small, 2 or 3 students. The level of the class was higher than mine, but they offered me a lot of help and options to learn. I had a great and ambitious teacher who invested time and energy to answer questions. I learned a lot and could have learned more if I had invested more time and energy but Genoa is a very interesting city! You can learn in 2 weeks as much as in 6 months in evening classes as home.

Placement is by a written test; I think it would have been better if there had also been an oral & comprehension portion. The App. Luzzetti (monolocale) is not a one bedroom apartment but rather a one room apartment w/separate bathroom. The "bed" is a sofabed - no wifi so had to use the school's wifi.

Small school, worked hard but there were only 3 levels, and I was between 2 levels. I was only allowed to change to a higher level, which fit me better, in the afternoon of the 3rd day (of total 5 days).
