Student opinions about Venice Language School, Venice
Liked
I am working in teachers training in university, basically in didactics. I enjoyed very much to "change the side" and to experience myself as a student. I was impressed, how the teachers handled a range of different students, how they motivated students from different countries really to conversate in italian (not, and it would have been much easier, at least during breaks or in the afternoons, in English or german). I also liked the way of teching and learning, how grammer was combined with literature or contents of daily life. The teachers did a very good work!!
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: the afternoon programmes were wonderful, don´t miss the Rialto-Tour and the visit of Frari-church!

It was fantastic experience for me. I'm very-very thankful to the school staff, our teachers Andrea, Claudia and Simona!!! They are amazing! The best teachers I've ever met! It was an unforgettable period of my life.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Go out with the school staff every Friday evening after lessons. Speaking Italian in a bar on Campo Santa Margarita with the glass of spritz helps to improve your knowledge very fast. :-D

There were many oral exercises, which may help many people (especially if the course is longer). However, for me, written exercises are also very helpful, of which there were not a lot.

Other comments: I would have loved a bit more structured approach to the grammar part. After first week I was confused and went to buy a grammar book to clear some things up. And the beginning seemed a bit slow - first three days we repeated pretty much the same stuff. And I don't mind a bit more homework. About social activities - I didn't participate cause our coursemates went to the first one and afterwards told that it was all in Italian so it held me back from future events cause there is no point for me if I don't understand anything. Maybe next year! :)

Very pleasant learning environment. Focusing on communication has helped me progress a lot.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: The cultural offerings in Venice are overwhelming. I can recommend a concert evening in San Vidal or a choir concert in Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari. The churches are full of art treasures. This year the various Tintoretto exhibitions were a must. I can only recommend a visit to the opera in La Venice to everyone. All course participants had a lot of discovery fun on long walks through the various sestiere. I was also enthusiastic about my island tour to Murano, Burano and especially Torcello. A very special experience was San Michele the cemetery island. I could recommend a lot more - but the wonderful city on the lagoon has so much beauty and lovely picturesque corners in store that everyone is cast under its spell in their own way!

I would have liked to have had more homework and also more teaching materials (not just exercise sheets).
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Coffee at Mammafé. Ombra - (wine) at da Lele. Corner bar right on the canal is great (location and value for money). Excursions in the area are worthwhile: Padua, Treviso, Eugene Hills - even Mestre has beautiful sides (Forte Marghera is a destination for locals!).
