ABC

  • If there is one way to live the Italian bella vita while learning the finer intricacies of the Italian language, then this would probably be the place for you. ABC Florence is situated in the historic center of the city - a location rich in history and art. Many people believe that Florence is the birthplace of the Italian language, so this learning experience is as authentic as it can get.ABC Florence maintains smaller groups of students in a personalized and attentive manner while catering to the needs of every student that chooses to enroll at this language school. Studying at ABC Florence allows you to choose the timeframe of your course, thus making it a personal experience. Group classes host no more than 8 students to assure a better quality of teaching and learning. Language ...
    instructors at ABC Florence encourage all students to express themselves independently and to make the most of situations where language skills can be improved.

Covid-19 related security measures that are taken by ABC

- Within all its buildings, ABC School in Florence follows the Health and Safety measures on Covid-19 set by National and Local Authorities, including social distancing.
- Students will have to bring their own mask.
- For personal and public safety it is strongly recommended that such measures are adhered to also by our students both inside and outside the school, as well as by accommodation providers.

The ways of being infected with Covid-19 are so numerous that it is virtually impossible to identify legal responsibilities for such event. In this light, ABC school cannot be held in any way responsible of the interactions between students, between students and teachers, students and accommodation providers etc.
Again, the students have to provide their own mask.
ACCOMMODATION HOST FAMILY AND SHARED APARTMENT
- The house and the room will be clean as usual. Only soaps/detergents indicated by the Italian Government will be used.
- There will be gel in the house to wash your hands.
- Keep a distance of around 1 metre from the people in the house.
- Keep your personal belongings in your room.
- Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough.
- Your temperature will be measured every morning at the school, therefore your temperature won''t be measured by your host family.
- If you have a fever or flu-like symptoms, inform the family immediately.
- Exchange of air will always be favoured, so students must open the windows in their rooms.
- The air conditioning system: In Italy, air conditioning isn''t used a lot and most of the accommodation doesn''t have it. If your accommodation does have air conditioning, the filters will be clean according to government regulations.
- Hospitals throughout Italy are well equipped for Covid-2019.
- Italy is very well organised for Covid-19.
- The school will be given all of the information with the relevant phone numbers.
- Bring your own mask.

What students liked about ABC, Florence
I loved the school! I liked that grammar classes take place separately. Julia perfectly explained Passato Remoto; I had a vague idea about this tense before, but now I understand the system. And the conversational practice with Sylvia was interesting - we had to invent something and even draw! Unfortunately, we studied only for 4 days as we combined the New Year holidays and the course. Of course, I would like to come and study for a longer period, and I hope I will some day. It was also nice to work at a large common table, in Salerno and in Rome we sat on chairs. The staff is really friendly and nice. I really liked the school.

Very friendly staff and teachers. The methods of teaching a foreign language are very efficient. The courses are really worth one's salt. The afternoon and weekend programs are of great variety, and you can always see that the teachers are highly motivated. I would return to ABC at any time!!!

Additional information
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: According to my opinion the excusions offered by the school are much better that the ones offered by official tourist organisations, because the groups are smaller and the excusions are acompanied by well informed teachers of the school. So take the opportunity to join as much activities offered by the school as possible.
Other comments: ABC-pupils come from all over the world and it's amazing that you can communicate with anyone in Italian, because it's the common language of everybody. The average age of the sutdents may be about 25, but also people beyond 50 are comletely integrated (if they want to be). I could hardly believe that it is so easy to learn a new language with 55!! And therefore I would always return to ABC, if necessary.
I think I liked most the attitude of all the teachers and staff in my school environment. Everyone was so helpful and kind to me! And also everything was made exactly the way I like: with calm, with no being in the rush, always on time, and above all - in a semi-funny, semi-serious way.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: In July, when it's really hot in Florence, the classes are smaller and the town is filled almost only with the tourists, while during the other seasons the classes are bigger and the number of students is greater, however, Florence is less like a place for tourists and easier to see how it really is. The choice is yours, honestly I did prefer the smaller classes :)
Availability. Warm welcome. The teaching is well structured especially regarding the grammar. Attentive teachers. The afternoon activities are very interesting (visits, museums, cine, yoga)

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: The school could accentuate the cultural part (visit of Florence) but I really appreciated the courses and I am thinking about coming back.
Other comments: I have no criticism to make as I have been really satisfied even though my progress was slow (I'm an absolute beginner).
The competence of the teachers. The quality of course content. The attitude of teachers and staff, always listening and seeking a solution. The availability and efficiency of staff.

Other comments: Review the classification of groups for the conversation. The levels were very different in the same group. It would probably be appropriate to group people of the same level. There could be an assessment of oral skills on arrival.
