Rita was an excellent instructor. I've done Italian language schools in Genoa and Bologna, and Rita really helped me work on my pronunciation and vocabulary.
The school is in a nice location. I only had private lessons, but all the other students I saw were cheerful and seemed to be enjoying their experiences at the school.

Most of the teachers are excellent. It is big enough so that there are varied classes, especially at the 1 (beginner) level.
This school is an OK option for a week or two class if you're on vacation in Napoli and want to work on your Italian. If you're really looking for a challenging environment, I'm not so sure. I've studied in over 12 private language schools in Europe and the Americas: this is the first where the vast majority of the time no homework was assigned. In addition, they do not utilize a book: everything is photocopied exercises. There is no reference material to refer back to, no written explanations, no reinforcement of concepts learned. It is impossible to know where you are in the course/level, or what you need to accomplish to move to the next level. This is not the fault of the teachers, who are generally very capable: rather, the direction of the school seems to not be focused on creating a challenging learning environment. It would be so easy to offer an afternoon movie or TV show with italian subtitles to work on oral comprehension. Even optional homework or seminars would help for the student that was really wanting to improve their language skills. I spoke with many other students who felt that their time in class was not really challenging and that they didn't make the progress they had hoped to. While there were a number of beginner level classes, this was not true with the 2 (intermediate) level. Challenging does not mean that the classes can't be fun, and even a minimum amount of homework/exercises (30 minutes?) would add to the learning experience.

They changed our teachers every week, so we were exposed to different teaching techniques, approaches, and accents.
They follow the usual language school format of splitting the morning up into grammar session and a conversation session. Classes start at 0930 and finish at about 1315 each day.

The teachers. The discussions and the level of learning.
The first morning was a bit awkward. We were sitting for an hour not knowing what was happening really. Would have liked a better welcome and better information. This time we could have used for looking at the week's activities and excursions organised by the school. The information given later ”drowned” in other papers.

Firstly, the school is situated in the historical center and the building is a "palaccio Napolitano", a wonderful and typical habitation. Then, the quality of courses is excellent because they are tailor-made for foreign students. Teachers are completely used to different nationality and provide a dynamic interaction all together. The rhythm is fine. It's intensive but pleasant and focused on communication which is very useful for beginners.
Congratulations to the teachers for their kindness and professionalism.
