I liked Madalena's teaching style. I also liked how the school encouraged student interaction via the activities and the 11 a.m. breaks. Everyone got to know everyone else, even if you were in different classes.

Young teachers, full of imagination and using original and effective methods. Friendly atmosphere. Nothing schooly. A daily pleasure!
Only one small criticism: acoustics! Carpets and curtains would certainly improve the situation.

I have no experience with other courses, but I think that the teaching was very good.
I missed a cup of coffee. I think they could have included that in the course price, or even paid for if necessary. Now you had to go to a cafe, which was sometimes nearly impossible timewise.

The open learning method. So don't follow a lesson from front to back. And of course that it only goes in Italian and not in my own language and then translated into Dutch.
I would like to have paid more attention to the verbs, because you use this to build sentences.

The skills and kindness of the teacher who gave the guided tours of the city (week of April 18th to 21st)
The various levels of the students in the group were not taken into account; The teacher was not motivated, did not correct the students. regarding the week shortened by PASQUETTA, no compensation was offered; I will not recommend this school

Very good reception and classrooms in good condition. However, despite a previous interview, I found myself in a group where pedagogy was based exclusively on successive exchanges in mini-groups. This did not answer my needs in language, grammar, and vocabulary, because we spoke without being corrected, therefore without being able to progress. Interesting texts and videos but no verification of meaning by the teacher. For having followed a very constructive week in Bologna last year, this one was disappointing. Very good contact with LanguageCourse and Lola Morel.

Very welcoming and friendly staff.
The interviews were made when we arrived, to see what level and group we would end up in. Both my friend and I thought the interviewer was very arrogant. Otherwise very happy, nice and charming staff.

The teaching method in group lessons was too relaxed for me. It's not suitable for students who are motivated to learn the language formally and pass official exams. There is no written placement test, no exit test, and practically no grammar; just a continuous diversity of fun exercises focused on speaking (mostly among groups of two/three students with little supervision from the teacher). Most other students were old tourists and retirees looking for a fun side activity to their short visit to Lucca, they joined and left continuously according to their holidays, so there is no chance of following a formal syllabus. The exercises were pleasant, entertaining and sometimes fun. My fluency and vocabulary improved. By the time I left, most of my grammar-based persistent errors, which could have been tackled in time, had been solidified by fluency. The professional boundaries between staff and students were crossed regularly and I was subjected to witness this (rather hear it) at the apartment provided to me by the school. It got to a point when I had to confront them and they agreed to stop it for my last week there.
