The teacher, Ms Chiara was very friendly, extremely patient, sincerely caring, was always on time and prepared for class. The classes were engaging with the right amount of learning, fun & games related to the content. The other teachers who conducted the extra classes also showed similar positive traits.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Try not to miss the free extra sessions on culture or grammar provided by the school if & when available. It would be a good idea for the student to attend the intensive courses and also live with an Italian family so that he/she is able to communicate in Italian outside of class as well.
Other comments
The classes were conducted professionally using highly effective language immersion techniques. I look forward to returning and continuing my Italian language studies with Scuola Leonardo Da Vinci when the opportunity permits.

The rooms were too bare, without atmosphere. Not many chairs outside the class rooms. It bothered me that we weren't given an attendance certificate at the end of the course and much less a "diploma" stating the achieved level.

I wish that one book would have been given at the end of the course with answers to exercises so that I could have continued studying and improving. I would have also liked to have received an evaluation at the end of the course and some personal recommendations to continue studying of Italian.

I had an absolutely amazing time there! The classes were fantastic, I did not expect to make such quick progress, the resources are very well put together and relevant to the student's life and current situation! I loved my accommodation in Trastevere that I shared with Francesca. She is Italian and helped me incredibly with my language learning!

My greatest disappointment that, having paid for 20 lessons per week, I lost the first two lessons due to the inefficiencies of the initial test. We were asked to be there by 8.30 for the test, then classes started at 9. Yet, even though I finished my test by 9, I was asked to come back only for the last two lessons for the day, thus lost 2 lessons I have paid for. I was very unhappy that I had to sit in a cafe while the lessons I had paid for were running, I should have been in the classroom! I was then allocated a class with 14 people in it, this was way to big and I found that such a big class slowed down my progress. Also, very little homework was given; if there were more and this was checked by teachers the next day, I would have learned a lot more. When asking for another class, I was put in a much smaller one, which was ideal, but then I have already lost two days, which I had paid for. Also, private tutorials were very expensive, 40 euros for 45 minutes, but at least these were very good.

Take the timetables and the distribution of the classes in mind, as well as the topics. Having the same teacher from 9 to 14 is too much.

The first day registration took too long and severely impacted on the already limited time for classes. Also beginners and students with some previous knowledge were mixed in my class which was not what I had wanted or expected.

The quality of the teaching methodology depends on the teacher that is assigned to you. Some teachers are very good, others are not good enough for the money you spend.

air-conditioning would improve comfort levels in the class rooms and reduce the impact of noise from that noisy lane down the side of the building.
