The city of Turin is a very pretty town the location of the school is very good, as you can get to the center walking distance organization nothing to say equipment very good teaching is great, the very nice teachers, they explain well / progress in language (a pity I only stayed a week !!!) The price is reasonable (although if it is cheaper I will not complain) What I liked the most, are the schedules because we have classes in the morning and afternoon I was able to visit the city the kindness of teachers!

The school has a very warm and friendly atmosphere, with fun social activities to get to know each other. The teachers are very good, informal and have a lot of patience. They will gladly answer all your questions after class or during the breaks.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss The apericena is a very good way to get to know the other students and make new friends. Also if you are interested in buying more books on Italian language or grammar, the school sells a lot of different books for all levels. The coffee-machine in the school is fine but for really good coffee you should go to the bar just around the corner called 'CAFFETTERIA PRESIDENT' in via Pastrengo. There they have great coffee and hot chocolate but also lunch if you're having a long day at school!

Everyone in the organisation, especially Chiara, were very caring and friendly. They always want to help and they pay attention to everyone. Every morning, upon entering the school, you are welcomed by a friendly greeting.

The courses are run by good teachers, there are flexible additional materials. The integration into the ongoing course was very okay for me as a participant of only one week among participants of several weeks.

The use of media is very low. It would be great if there were also opportunities to speak individually or to take small interim tests.

Other comments Offer the guided tour on different topics rather for certain level. Otherwise, some people don't understand so much and ask the same-speakers in their mother tongue to translate. It's a bit of an unfortunate situation. This is my third course. Rome and Turin are at the top of my list.

The atmosphere was very good. Teachers were enthusiastic and there was a lot of individual attention. Met a lot of nice people and great social things were organized. Will definitely come back here!
Insider tips about what future students should not miss Although public transportation in Turin is well organized, I would say, make sure you have a bicycle! Due to its Roman structure it is very easy to find your way in the city.

Very good teaching staff, interested in the subject and in the students, who are able to inspire the students with the language and who are also very friendly.

The accompanying booklet, which offers little explanation of grammar topics, is not optimal. The seating is not very comfortable and the tables offer too little shelf space.
