Other comments:
I will not recommend this school! No level test worthy of the name, just an oral interview that was useless, because the wishes evoked were not respected.

Excellent and very skilled teachers. Olga the very helpful and friendly receptionist. The beautiful gardens. The view from the terrace when I was having my morning espresso. The Pagano-Morelli family who accommodated me were beautiful people, very kind and could not do enough to make me feel comfortable and welcome.
Other comments:
The free introduction to the city tour provided by the school was excellent but I didn’t participate in any extended excursions offered by the school as I felt they were a little expensive.

Additional information
Positive aspects of school:
Its location. Had a great view. Which is obviously non relevant for teaching purposes. I did like that it was relatively close to the centre of town. Although I did not attend the party or the fire works on the roof, I heard that they were fun activities, and the school and its teachers had an inclusive, fun attitude.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
Don't go to Sorrento in July! It is too hot.
Other comments:
There was a lot of "pair work". Ideally, there would be less "pair work" and more conversation Italian in the class, as I think that a person can 'hide' in pair work, and I think that I learn more in conversational Italian classes. I did think the class size was good, as there weren't many people in my class. All the teachers were very nice. Good AV equipment in the class room. Air conditioning could be better - it is hot in the rooms in July/August.

Study some Italian on your own before the course so that not everything is new. It will make it easier to remember what you learn.

Would be nice with more tours for students in Italian, in order to practice the language and as an opportunity to socialize.

Positive aspects of school:
The instructors are excellent and the support staff are most helpful. I had a dental emergency while there, and the staff went out of their way to help me.I think the grammar instruction is better than the conversation piece. It really depends on which instructor you have. They are all good, but some are better than others. My favorites were Lucia for grammar and Guisseppe for conversation. They work there only during high season.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
Sorrento is very expensive. Be prepared for sticker shock.
Other comments:
I was quite satisfied with my experience at the school. I was there for six weeks, and Italians I encounter tell me I speak very well.
