What we like about the school

  • Every afternoon free organized leisure activities for adults
  • Excellent nationality mix. No student nationality makes up more than 15% of students.
  • For chain schools: Same conditions for waiving the inscription fee also apply if the student has booked at another school of the same school chain.

What we dislike about the school

  • Younger students should consider that the average age of students at this school is significantly higher than at most other schools.

What students liked about Centro Koinè, Bologna
I loved Centro Koine, and highly recommend it. I was able to build great relationships with both the teachers and the students as everyone was very friendly. The building was quaint and in a great location near San Stefano. As a beginner, I received a lot of time and attention, and feel like I learned as much as a could during my short 1-week stay with the school. Centro Koine does a great job at facilitating interactions among students and teachers in an informal setting, and I hope to visit the school again at some point to advance my Italian.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: You should definitely borrow some Italian movies from the school library ;) and establish new international friendships.
Other comments: I traveled with EF before - there, the price-performance ratio did not match up. But this small language school has been cheaper for five weeks than if I would have traveled only two weeks with EF. The familiy atmosphere, the courses are small, the teachers are really nice and very endeavored, students from all over the world.
