Additional information
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Choose your season carefully. In November some things in Cefalu were closed. I did not mind but some might prefer to be there in September or October.
Other comments: This was excellent for me: a small but charming city with a fascinating history and beautiful monuments. The academy made good use of the location. I am a slow language learner but the teacher was tolerant and helpful.
Very friendly teachers, very good adaptation of teaching/forming groups with the same language level. The courses were very diversified.

Other comments: The offer of the school, to live in a shared apartment at the Villa Caterina with other students, was ideal for me. It might be nice to rent a vespa or so, since the villa is on a hillside.
