What students liked about Dilit International House, Rome
I loved the international environment of the school. It was full of students from all over the world, and once in a higher level, italian was the language of communication between the students as well (rather than english, which was great for learning). There are also possibilities to meet Italians who are learning English in the school, so some free practice! The teachers were absolutely awesome, all well trained and very entertaining. One negative thing might be that the curiculum is rather repetitive, so be prepared for some boredom if you go to classes for more than 2 months. However, the standard of teaching is outstanding, and would definitely recommend this school to everyone!!

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Don't miss the various walks and seminars organised by the school, especially in the first few weeks of your stay. It's a great way to get your bearings and meet more people!
Other comments: 100% recommended. I had an amazing time and am missing it a lot! Would definitely go back.
The teachers are amazing. Very nice, patient and funny. I had 4 teachers (group classes and individual ones) that were very good. The group lesson are a little bit repetitive (listening, acting, practising) but they are good and it is amazing to share the class with so many different cultures (German, Spanish, Korean, Turkish, French, Swedish, Mexican, English...). I spent a very good time with the students outside the school. The individual lessons are very good because you progress faster than during the group ones. Combined classes are ideal to progress.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Roma, Orvieto, Ostia Antica, the beaches...The area is great for tourism.
Other comments: Great organization, great atmosphere, great teachers, great students...PERFECTO!!
I had one week of private lessons and I really liked that I had 2 different teachers during that week. Every evening the school organized different programmes like guided tours to a special part of Rome which you don't find in the usual guide books, or film evening, or literature lessons for free and the weekend they organize trips to places in the area surrounding Rome (this costs little money and are well organized).

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: In the school there is a nice little bar where one can have coffee (€0,70) etc and even for lunch they offer 3 different simple meals... I mention this, because the host families also offer breakfast - but as they don't have the same breakfast "mentality" as we have for €3,5 they often only offer coffee and biscuits so one could save money by eating at the school!
I liked the fact that there were people from all over the globe and that the method of teaching was almost informal because it allowed me to make significant progress in the learning process.The teacher I had was very dynamic and energetic, which made lessons easier. The rest of the staff was always very helpful. I loved the lunch area because I could eat there a good meal for a cheap price.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: If you are the type of person that learns from a very structured- by the book method, you might get a bit frustrated by the program at Dilit. But if you are one of those who is willling to go with the flow and challenge yourself, I definitely recommend Dilit. Also, wonder about the school activities; the ones I went to were great; unfortunately, they get cancelled if there are not many people, so if you don't want to miss out, ADVERTISE them on school with everyone you see! It worked for us:)
Participating in an advanced-level-course, I found it particularly helpful that emphasis was put on making the students speak among themselves - rather than only with the teacher. Moreover, the staff at the school were extremely helpful and friendly. A friend of mine lost his purse and the school willingly lent him some money.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: I took a homecooking class, which was fairly expensive (80 € for three hours), but good value nevertheless: the cooking was good, we had some wine and it was an excellent opportunity to practise one's Italian.
