It would be very helpful to have known ahead of time which week of the two teaching cycles we would be entering. It would have been much better to adjust our dates so that we could have started in the first week.

Give a phone number when organising meetings, in case we are late we do not know how to find the group during the afternoon activities. Guides presenting the city with more details
Other comments:
Do not make meetings with students around a very long table. We can not talk so it's a shame ... Please round tables of 6 or 8 Max it would be so much better and it creates bounding otherwise we can be bored in a very noisy environment ...

We only spoke in Italian. The teacher were really good. Sarah was the best. With her we always made conversation.
Other comments:
I have booked the "Dolce Vira 50+" course in hope that there will only be student over 50. Unfortunately, this was only referred to the activities. The classes were mixed. Partly there were also 17 years-old teenagers. But in the end it did not hurt. You just assume differently in the beginning according to the name "50+". On the last two days I decided to to some individual lessons as well which would cost 30€ for 45 min. Therefore, I booked 3 x 45 minutes. And in the end it said on the billing that one lesson cost 40€. This made me the goodbye very easy.

The reception on arrival at the beginning of the course could have been more informative and welcoming. The library was pretty well non-existant. It would be a good idea if they could allow pupils to borrow dvds or books.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
If you are an older student (over 25) I do not recommend sharing a flat. The apartments are noisy, dirty, and the single beds are uncomfortable. I recommend a bed and breakfast! The school claims they will change the sheets at the 2 week point. It does not happen.
Other comments:
Overall it was a positive experience but the older student should realize that the great majority of students will be under 23 years of age. Many of the computers did not work and there is no WIFI available at the school.

Other comments:
I found the acoustics in the classrooms to be fairly poor. Frequently there was a lot of noise from outside, and the classrooms are sparsely decorated which means that the sound tends to reverberate around the room, making it difficult sometimes to follow what the teacher, is saying As an improvement, I would suggest something very simple to be given to students studying Italian for the first - a list of standard questions that one can ask, to get along initially. For example, "Come si dice...", "come si chiama...", "Ripete per favore". Some grammatical definitions would also be useful, eg sostantivo, nome, maschile, feminile, significa, etc. It was a day before I worked out that "significa" translates as "meaning", not "significance". A vital difference!

It is a very big school, but well organized, all the people I met there were very friendly. Unfortunately the grammar classes are boring, but the conversations are very interesting. And what is very good is that you can meet people there from all over the world and make fantastic new friendships.

Other comments:
The school in Florence was by far the best out of all three. I also spent two weeks at the school in Siena which was good and then two weeks at the school in Rome. The school in Rome was terrible. Those working there were extremely apathetic towards my complaints that the school was an hour outside of the center by metro and bus, I had been placed with a family after I specifically requested twice to change the accomodation to an apartment, there was no choice about class scheduling and no prior notification that the courses were scheduled at different times due to lack of space, a couple of the teachers were not even native Italian speakers

The test in the beginning, to test your knowledge was very bad. You have to take care, that they but you in the right level !
Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
If it is possible, they should make a trip to San Marino and Siena. Sandra, the german receptionist of the school ;-) !!!!
Other comments:
I am very happy, that I took the decision to come here and really realized it. The teachers are very good and because of very small classes, they can work with you and on individual problems of each student. I would advice to all foreigners, that they should join a course in winter - NOT IN THE MAIN SEASON - the classes are smaller and the city is not so crowded of tourists.

Other comments:
Some of the extra courses were not that great and for the money i would have expected better. We had great teachers, the only thing for the first two weeks the first teacher (whilst a great person)was not as good as the second for conversation as he was a relief teacher we were really behind the other class in terms of our conversation.

Other comments:
When booking a languagecourse, ask for Gianna as a teacher for at least one subject. She is the best teacher ever! I furthermore recommend to book a course that starts in the beginning of the month and not in the middle of it.
