What students liked about Laboling, Milazzo (Sicily)
The freindly atmosphere. All the staff are extremely helpful in any issue so, really you do not have to worry about anything because you can always ask for good advice. The teaching quality was excellent. The classes were very well structured and we had the chance to speak, read, listen etc. We also had homework which I found good. In the classes, we learned a lot about the culture, eating habits etc. so it was more than just learning a language. I loved the location of the school - near the promenade, shops and bars so the breaks were varied. I sat on the seafront 30 min before classes began and read an easy book in Italian. I enjoyed the atmosphere very much. The offer of free time activities is excellent. When we went on guided tours or trips, we had highly competent guides that explained all in very clear and understandable Italian. Even the newcomers could grasp the main issues.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: The free time activities; the castle; the Capo; the boat trips to the islands. Good food in the restaurants nearby - try dishes recommended. Try typical Sicilian fast food, ice cream, Granita etc.
Other comments: A very high standard with value for money.
The care of the language - the Italian language - as well in details as a whole, and the teaching which made you not fear making mistakes and challenged you to talk, try, and thus learn more than other overly demanding studies

I liked the family atmosphere at the school best. It may also be related to the fact that everything is a little smaller and more personal in a small town.

Other comments: I can only recommend LaboLing. Actually, we are about to book another course at the next level of difficulty for this time next year.
The personal and familiar atmosphere, learning in small groups, emphasis on conversation (B1), deepening in the cultural program in the afternoon
