Student opinions about Accademia Leonardo, Salerno

Maria is a very good teacher! We were lucky to have lessons with just the two of us.
Afternoon programme is poor. Cooking was cancelled because of rain in the kitchen, a substitute such as watching an Italian film together would have been nice. The afternoon programme could help the students to get in touch with each other.
