Bader: "It was 3 weeks only but I learned a lot."

Rating: 5.0/5.0

Ric: "The teachers were fantastic: very expressive in their explanations in Italian so you could understand everything. In addition, very friendly, sociable and patient. Nothing but praise for the administration and reception: 5 stars! The classroom in which our lessons took place was essentially unsuitable: a long pipe drawer so that as students you could only sit next to each other and therefore couldn't see each other, which is not conducive to conversation. We did not participate in the afternoon activities."

ABC

    • If there is one way to live the Italian "bella vita" while learning the finer intricacies of the Italian language, then ABC Florence would probably be the place for you. It is situated in the historic centre of the city, a location rich in history and art. Many people believe that Florence is the birthplace of the Italian ...
    • language, so the learning experience is as authentic as it can get. ABC Florence maintains smaller groups of students in a personalised and attentive manner while catering to the needs of every student that chooses to enroll at the language school.

      The school is located in a Renaissance noble palace, Palazzo Canigiani, in the area of San Niccolò in Oltrarno, a 3-minute walk from the Ponte Vecchio. The large, well-lit classrooms have high, frescoed ceilings and on one side overlook the peaceful Via dei Bardi and on the other, the Arno river. Some of them offer panoramic views, but the prettiest view can be enjoyed from the terrace: from here, Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi Gallery, the Arno riverbank, the Palazzo Vecchio and the Cathedral’s dome all make a Gine show off themselves right in front of you.

      Studying at ABC Florence allows you to choose the timeframe of your course, thus making it a personal experience. Teachers at ABC Florence encourage all students to express themselves independently and to make the most of situations where language skills can be improved. All accommodation options are conveniently located in the historic centre of the city.

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 :)
The welcome, the warmest ladies at the desk. Good and serious assessment of basic level and good communication about this. Excellent, very nice, motivated teachers. I've never liked school so much.

Other comments: We have not extended our course because we do not actually use Italian any further. Due to circumstances we have to learn Spanish. Unfortunately ABC does not do this otherwise we would certainly have done it at one of their schools.
Availability. Warm welcome. The teaching is well structured especially regarding the grammar. Attentive teachers. The afternoon activities are very interesting (visits, museums, cine, yoga)
