You could tell that the teachers knew the content well and that they prepared their lessons. They are flexible and they show interest for their students' progress. However, during the first 3 weeks there were quite a few new students and I had the feeling that we did not learn that much.
They should improve the organisation of the different levels so that new students don't slow everyone down.

Great teachers that made the classes interesting and many fun and educational organised trips/events.
The school had a relaxed and friendly atmosphere but was also organised at the same time. All the teachers and staff that I met were very friendly and helpful. I would definitely (and will most likely!) book another course at Scuola Leonardo Milano. Grazie Mille

The great organization and flexibility. From one day to another I could change to a course that was more my level. Very friendly staff.
After two weeks on chairs with fold-out tables I dealt with some back pain. I am 23 and have no other back problems. ;) It was not the end of the world, but after two weeks I really looked forward to tables and sitting straight again.

The teachers were very personable and I liked the amount of conversation we had because that was my poorest ability.
I wish the school offered more activities rather than referring us to other organizations for activities. They could have had a cooking class.
