The group should be less numerous. The first week we were 12 in class. The group should be limited to 8 people.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Bring your own grammar book and definitely - a dictionary (which was very useful).
Other comments
I would have loved a bit more structured approach to the grammar part. After first week I was confused and went to buy a grammar book to clear some things up. And the beginning seemed a bit slow - first three days we repeated pretty much the same stuff. And I don't mind a bit more homework. About social activities - I didn't participate cause our coursemates went to the first one and afterwards told that it was all in Italian so it held me back from future events cause there is no point for me if I don't understand anything. Maybe next year! :)

Go out with the school staff every Friday evening after lessons. Speaking Italian in a bar on Campo Santa Margarita with the glass of spritz helps to improve your knowledge very fast. :-D

There was no written placement test beforehand, just a very short conversation. So, the group (very big, up to 13 students) was not very homogeneous. Personally, I made no progress. I visited much better schools in Italy.

I had only 1-to-1 lessons, adapted from a model for a class I think. Maybe I could have homework which adressed the need for the repetition/practice I would have had in a class.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Roaming around the city through as many of the streets as possible; finding the non-tourist-oriented restaurants/bars.
Other comments
I had four different teachers, one very good, one good and two very disinterested in teaching (or at least that was what came across). If you do a homestay for more than 1 week make sure you find out what the homeowner defines as use of laundry facilities.

No air-conditioning. Not possible to study in 35 degree heat. The host family were two girls, who always invited their boyfriends at night. Very small room right under the roof, nearly 40 degrees at night too, very noisy street.

The afternoon guided walks were informative and fun. I bought a season ticket for the vaporetto for the month, saved a lot of money and made it easy to hop on and off the boats.

I am working in teachers training in university, basically in didactics. I enjoyed very much to "change the side" and to experience myself as a student. I was impressed, how the teachers handled a range of different students, how they motivated students from different countries really to conversate in italian (not, and it would have been much easier, at least during breaks or in the afternoons, in English or german). I also liked the way of teching and learning, how grammer was combined with literature or contents of daily life. The teachers did a very good work!!
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
the afternoon programmes were wonderful, don´t miss the Rialto-Tour and the visit of Frari-church!

The location is beautiful, close to Campo santa Margarita, a typical house, you can also enjoy the breaks. be prepared that it can be cold in winter!
