Student opinions about Laboling, Milazzo (Sicily)

Verified reviews only, uncensored. All student opinions from students who booked a course at the school with LanguageCourse.net.
Liked
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.

I was blown away by the commitment and kindness of the faculty and staff. I have been to other language schools where excursions and classes were cancelled due to low enrolment. NOT HERE! There were no hidden fees like other places. Regardless of my slow retention, I was made to feel special and the patience was HIGH. Their knowledge and how to communicate it was done with grace and joy. The student apartment was one floor above school, and it had all the convenances you would want, including a washing machine. I was here in the winter and I could still walk around the town in t-shirt and jeans. Moreso, as a woman, I felt safe. I made friends that I will be seeing beyond the course time.
Disliked
Unfortunately, the school is about 1 1/2-2 hours from Catania Airport. Therefore, you have to rely on public transportation. If you have a lot of luggage, taking the train can be cumbersome since you will have to transfer. The bus and vans are on a specific timetable that may not coordinate with your flight times. The van I took was full; so, it was cramped. The good thing though was a staff person from Laboling (Sonja) picked-me on arrival at the drop-off in Milazzo.

Friendly, professional, and caring approach. Our main teacher, Alessandro, was an excellent second language teacher. We had accommodation at the school that was simple but comfortable and convenient. Extra excursions were well-organised, interesting and fun. A great experience that I would highly recommend.
Disliked
Inevitably there was a range of language abilities in the class which affected the rate of progress at times. A more precise initial assessment of each student may help that.

An evening together in a restaurant, all in Italian. You sit there like someone who is hard of hearing. Only every tenth word is understood. A pity.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss Don't attend school in January, because the school has less activities and there are very few students there. I was alone for three weeks, and for the first two weeks there where only 2 activities. I had a hard time finding stuff to do in the evenings. When other students arrived at the school, the learning process went faster. There were more activities and the evening was more eventful.
