What students liked about ARCI-Pasolini Centro di Lingua, Castiglioncello
The instructor was great -- supportive, encouraging, fun, and personable. She made it fun and interesting to learn Italian. The group sizes were small (just 3 students and one instructor in my group) which was much better than learning in a large class. The other participants were friendly and the culture of the school was very positive. There weren't a lot of organized activities but students spontaneously self-organized for dinners, which is probably better than a forced arrangement anyway.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: The one-on-one lessons were great and worth the price. There is little or no signage for the school at the castle and the villa is hard to find so find out where you're going before you arrive.
Other comments: Great team and very encouraging learning environment. Two thumbs up!
Teachers are friendly and involved in our improving of language. A very pleasant mix between work and holiday mood.
