I wanted to study with people from different age groups, but in my class most pupils were 15-18 years. It might be wise to ask the school about the age range of the other pupils.
Other comments
My teacher did not explain the new grammar, even though people said they did not know what he was talking about. At the same time it was frustrating because I could not read ahead on my own since he did not say what grammar we would study the next day. You should know another latin language since it´s not allowed to speak English even though you are a beginner. My teacher explained things in many ways in Italian. If you are from China for example that does not help.

The teachers are amazing. Very nice, patient and funny. I had 4 teachers (group classes and individual ones) that were very good. The group lesson are a little bit repetitive (listening, acting, practising) but they are good and it is amazing to share the class with so many different cultures (German, Spanish, Korean, Turkish, French, Swedish, Mexican, English...). I spent a very good time with the students outside the school. The individual lessons are very good because you progress faster than during the group ones. Combined classes are ideal to progress.

In my case I had Italian lessons, courses for the official CILS exam and practices in tourism company. Having done a Master in Organization and Management of Events, I told the person in charge of the internship course I'd like to do my practices in that department or in a travel agency. He offered me to do them in a tiny hotel or in a travel agency (there were not more options). I chose the hotel, with the intention of organizing the events. In summary, I spent the entire month as a waitress in the restaurant, a little bit in the reception (as it was so small that only one person fitted in the reception and he could not almost teach me anything) and I was almost a babysitter for the children's birthday parties (events). The principal from the school is friend of the owner of the hotel. The hotel treated me well, the problem is the school's principal, he promises things and then he does not fulfill them just to keep the money that you paid for the course.

They do not start at Zero level. This is what I requested and I was greatly disappointed. I feel I wasted my money and time. The school should start with basic grammar and vocabulary for Zero level and be kind enough to explain the 'why' of something in the student's native language. Consistently repeating something in Italian when the student does not understand Italian is fruitless.

I liked the fact that there were people from all over the globe and that the method of teaching was almost informal because it allowed me to make significant progress in the learning process.The teacher I had was very dynamic and energetic, which made lessons easier. The rest of the staff was always very helpful. I loved the lunch area because I could eat there a good meal for a cheap price.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
If you are the type of person that learns from a very structured- by the book method, you might get a bit frustrated by the program at Dilit. But if you are one of those who is willling to go with the flow and challenge yourself, I definitely recommend Dilit. Also, wonder about the school activities; the ones I went to were great; unfortunately, they get cancelled if there are not many people, so if you don't want to miss out, ADVERTISE them on school with everyone you see! It worked for us:)

Participating in an advanced-level-course, I found it particularly helpful that emphasis was put on making the students speak among themselves - rather than only with the teacher. Moreover, the staff at the school were extremely helpful and friendly. A friend of mine lost his purse and the school willingly lent him some money.

I took a homecooking class, which was fairly expensive (80 € for three hours), but good value nevertheless: the cooking was good, we had some wine and it was an excellent opportunity to practise one's Italian.

I loved the international environment of the school. It was full of students from all over the world, and once in a higher level, italian was the language of communication between the students as well (rather than english, which was great for learning). There are also possibilities to meet Italians who are learning English in the school, so some free practice! The teachers were absolutely awesome, all well trained and very entertaining. One negative thing might be that the curiculum is rather repetitive, so be prepared for some boredom if you go to classes for more than 2 months. However, the standard of teaching is outstanding, and would definitely recommend this school to everyone!!

the best school I've ever had, because the teachers are very motivated and the lessons are very diversified; you really have to talk in Italien as you're often working in groups or doing some games, etc. but the leisure activities (for example tours trough the city which were very interesting)were often cancelled

It's a good school to learn Italian, but if one person don't talk very good English.

Other Students! Excellent group of people. The Instructors were quite nice too. The location of the school was pretty good and convenient as well.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
It is better to start the school on a week where new course start instead of a random week. It provides a better chance of meeting people and making friends, since there are a lot of new students who are looking to meet others on those days.
Other comments
The housing options should be evaluated better. The housing offered to me had only 1 bathroom for 6 people!! It makes it very difficult in the mornings since everybody is rushing to go to school at the same time. About the school- the level of students should also be evaluated better. Many of the students were placed at a lower or higher level instead of the right one. The test given on the first day is not good enough to judge properly, it should be replaced with a better one.

Other comments
Most of the families do not have much time to spend with the students. So communication between students and family members are often rare. One of the reasons is that most of them work full-time. If you like to live in a quiet place staying with a family is the right choice but in order to improve the language I recommend living with other students.

I had one week of private lessons and I really liked that I had 2 different teachers during that week. Every evening the school organized different programmes like guided tours to a special part of Rome which you don't find in the usual guide books, or film evening, or literature lessons for free and the weekend they organize trips to places in the area surrounding Rome (this costs little money and are well organized).
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
In the school there is a nice little bar where one can have coffee (€0,70) etc and even for lunch they offer 3 different simple meals... I mention this, because the host families also offer breakfast - but as they don't have the same breakfast "mentality" as we have for €3,5 they often only offer coffee and biscuits so one could save money by eating at the school!

Classes are based on conversation and a lot of teamwork with your classmates, which is nice, so you get to know them. A bit of a do it yourself attitude. I learned the most in every day life though, meeting friends. The city is just beautiful.

It was great to be able to spend 6 weeks in Rome, the school was good but progress was slow - probably because the higher your level the more difficult the progress becomes. I would recommend this course and do it again...
