I liked the small classes which allows for individual attention.
The teachers are excellent, patient, knowledgeable and energetic. They also are the best sources for local tips and to see Italian mannerisms (ie hand gestures) in action.

Very good teaching. Pedagogical, enthusiastic and inspiring. Fast pace but it gave me a lot of confidence. The staff was friendly, gave good service and cared about the students.
I can highly recommend this school. The classrooms were normal school standard. The social activities are in Italian and as a beginner it was difficult to understand them the first few weeks. The activities themselves are good.

The quality of the courses, the friendliness, the mix of nationalities and also the fact that it is ideally located.
Do not make meetings with students around a very long table. We can not talk so it's a shame ... Please round tables of 6 or 8 Max it would be so much better and it creates bounding otherwise we can be bored in a very noisy environment ...

I could learn the grammars with a right speed. It was good that I had enough homework. As the afternoon activities were one-to-one style, my teacher explained me in English sometimes and I could know about the culture and the art in Florence. I'm 60 years old and one of my classmates was 80 years old. The school had a friendly environment and even an older person like me could feel comfortable to join the course. However, some of my classmates felt stressed to learn grammars. I had a good time with the excursions to Lucca and museums. I won't forget the delicious Italian dishes that we prepared and cooked at the school director's house.
Morning course consisted of grammar section and conversation section for 1.5 hour each. I couldn't speak well during the conversation session. I was suggested by the school before starting the second week that it would be better to change to private lessons, however I kept taking the group course. If you prefer to study seriously, I recommend you to take private lessons.

Our program was wonderful, perfect balance of the classroom hours and other activities. Our teachers, Francesco, Giulia and Brenda were marvelous, with great teaching skills, and a fountain of information.

teachers and Brenda's programs
We were especially impressed by Giulia's dedication and professionalism. She was a delight. This is not to take away from Francesco's contribution, of course, he too is an excellent teacher; but I guess I am biased by Giulia's beauty and grace:) -John

We only spoke in Italian. The teacher were really good. Sarah was the best. With her we always made conversation.
I have booked the "Dolce Vira 50+" course in hope that there will only be student over 50. Unfortunately, this was only referred to the activities. The classes were mixed. Partly there were also 17 years-old teenagers. But in the end it did not hurt. You just assume differently in the beginning according to the name "50+". On the last two days I decided to to some individual lessons as well which would cost 30€ for 45 min. Therefore, I booked 3 x 45 minutes. And in the end it said on the billing that one lesson cost 40€. This made me the goodbye very easy.
