What our students said about Naples

Rating: 5/5

5.0

Napoli has many interesting layers of culture. There are plenty of museums, castles and churches to visit. I took day trips to each of the 3 beautiful nearby islands, Procida, Ischia,Capri. The street life is colorful and the street art is very creative.I can’t imagine being bored here. Even though the restaurants are very affordable I became bored with the majority of them serving only pizza and/or pasta. There are different neighborhoods to explore and the city center is very walkable. Yes I found the city dirty but this is not new news. I believe it’s a very particular city and I plan on returning.

Even if you've been to Italy many times and have traveled a lot both in the north and in the south, Naples is yet another, very special experience. You just have to experience it yourself. The city has such a rich past with many different cultural influences that have changed and shaped it over the millennia. The influence of natural resources (Vesuvius, Flegrean fields) are also very interesting. If you love Italy, you should definitely visit Naples.

I love Naples more than anything! The history, culture, architecture, the people, the urbanity, the climate ..... I really liked everything. Enjoy life - this motto is really lived here. You just have to see this city - or EXPERIENCE it. As Goethe said: VEDI NAPOLI E POI MUORI

It's a lively city, easy to get around by walking to most of the important sightseeing spots. Great food, and fantastic coffee. And of course the pizzas and gelatos were superb.

The lessons often integrated Neapolitan culture, food and music which created a more interesting learning experience. My teacher also gave tips on where to eat, which museums are important and what foods to try, always in Italian. Instead of using a book, we used handouts that were more specific to the grammar covered. The classes always started and ended on time. At 59 years old I had trepidation about returning to school, even a language school, but it turned out to be the joy of my 2 month stay in Napoli.
Communication was excellent from the first e mail to the last WhatsApp goodbye and good luck. The teachers are professional but also really make learning fun and relative to life in Naples and Italy. We were offered coffee and cookies often before our lessons, very sweet. We were all invited to share a beautiful cake marking the 4th anniversary of NaClips. The location is in the middle of the city, 3 minute walk from the metro and is set between 2 interesting neighborhoods. I researched 3 other schools before choosing NaClips and I know I made the correct choice.

I had lessons from Teresa and Vivian and learned a lot from both of them. I particularly liked that the focus was on speaking and that the grammar was conveyed in a clear and not too dry way.

Everything worked flawlessly, the school leaders are very warm and welcome you personally. There was also a personal meeting a few days before the start of the class, as I was in Naples the week before. The lessons themselves are varied, with grammar exercises, playful learning, culture and conversation. The wishes of the learners are also taken into account. Overall, I had a very nice week at Italianopoli and a great time in Naples and the surrounding area. :-)

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.

Small institute, each of the employees knows the names of their students, which I find extremely appealing! Very personal, you feel "at home", as part of a community, really great!

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.
