Italian school in Siena: Dante Alighieri

4.2

Rating: 4.2/5.0

What we like about the school

  • Rooftop terrace

Dante Alighieri

  • Dante Alighieri is situated in the small medieval Italian city of Siena. The historical centre of Siena has been declared as a UNESCO world heritage site as it has preserved its gothic architecture from the 12th century. From the school, students can reach the core of the old town, Piazza del Campo, in under ten minutes by walking towards the 87m Tower of Mangia, which is difficult to miss as it rises boldly above the streets of the city. Another noteworthy attraction of Siena is the Fortezza Medicea, a fortress for the city’s protection which now provides its visitors with a number of picturesque hiking and walking trails. The fortress is 25 minutes by foot from Dante Alighieri. With such a central location, most of the city's attractions are accessible by foot, but for those who ...
    prefer to use public transport, there are bus stops close to the school building. Dante Alighieri is close to the Botanical Garden of the University of Siena and Monastery of St. Augustine in a quiet area of Siena which is perfect for concentrating on learning a language. There are a number of restaurants dotted around the immediate vicinity of the school for those wanting to taste the local Italian cuisine, as well as a supermarket and a cinema nearby. The facilities within the school building include a library, a movie room with rentals available, a games room, a rooftop terrace and a piano in the recreation room. The methodology used within the classroom follows a didactic approach to learning. This style of teaching focuses on the basic norms of the language and presents this information to the students in an organised and almost scientific manner. This is introduced to the student through interactive activities and a general format of teaching-learning-evaluating in order to address any misconceptions the student may have and to see where their strengths lie. Dante Alighieri has some interesting courses alongside the general language courses including language and music, language and cooking classes, 50+ programme, a pre professional internship and a PLIDA exam preparation course. Siena Magnifica is a course that combines both the Italian language and culture and includes 4 cultural lessons per week: 2 cooking lessons, 1 wine tasting and 1 excursion per 2 weeks programme. It is possible to book this course for up to 4 weeks and gives students the opportunity to learn more about Siena whilst getting to grips with the Italian language. All the teachers are highly trained and create a professional and encouraging learning atmosphere within the classrooms.

What students liked about Dante Alighieri, Siena
The setting of the school in the old town and the warm and friendly staff. Friends said that the cooking and singing classes are really worth while if you are interested in cooking or singing.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: the palio (horse race on July 2 or August 16), the festival of classical music in the second week of July and the open air cinema in the old fortezza in July and the beginning of August.
Other comments: The school puts students together in one flat who are about the same age. Who is 33 is not likely to share an apartment with people who are 17. I liked that. If you are not used to the Italian standard of living you might find the school and the apartments a bit wacky.
All staff and teachers very friendly but at the same time very professional. Hand picked teacher who knew what she was doing (Ilenia and Andrea my guide too)

Other comments: I have enjoyed every minute of my course, made friends with teachers, and students. Everyone gelled, I did not feel different because of my age. Amazing, will come back in 2015. Thank you.
In class only Italian was spoken. Besides the language I learned a lot about the history, the structure and some special or typical Italian characteristics.

Other comments: I think Dante Alighieri offers a good mixture of grammar and conversation. I liked that we had not just one teacher but two different ones. In addition to that I enjoyed the fact that in my course the have been seven students and each one came from a different country. Moreover, the teachers are very kind and the lessons are good.
Our teacher was great! and also the women in the front desk were very friendly, patient and tried to solve each problem
