Most recent student reviews of language schools in Rome

Rating: 4.2

4.2 | 208 reviews

Very bad experience. I would spend 7 weeks studying. At the end of the first week, due to the COVID crisis, they started offering online classes. Italy was starting their lockdown and students had to leave the country quickly. The sensitivity of the school was zero, they did not give me a chance to cancel my booking and only after insisting a lot I was given a voucher to return and take the course within a year. It is not easy to travel from Brazil to Rome and stay there for 7 weeks, without working and studying, I will probably never achieve this in my life, but even so the school was not supportive and they wanted me to take the online course, even though I said that the course would start every day at 04:00 AM in my country. I can't say anything about the quality of the course and the teachers,  but I warn you that if something happens and you need to count on the school's support and comprehension, it won't happen, you will not get any assistance. I consider that I've lost the course, I will never be able to do it and I ended up losing all the money, because the school has not even offered an agreement. If one day I have the opportunity to return to Italy to study, I will look for a place where I can count on some solidarity, in case something happens. I emphasize that I received help by everyone in Italy, by my host, by the airline company, by the school that I would attend after this course, but only the Scuola Leonardo da Vinci did not offer me any agreement or assistance. It was very disappointing.

I will start with good things: the location is great, facilities, office staff are very nice and helpful and the activities are great. However, my ultimate favourite thing was the bar. Food at school was amazing, very tasty and well priced. Unfortunately, I was not happy with the quality of teaching. The method they use just does not work for everyone. If you like structure and to learn basic things at the beginning then this school is not for you! I was in the A1 group. The teacher should have taught us basic things like: an alphabet, how to introduce yourself, how to say I, you, she, he, we, they. We were repeating some conversation without understanding the words (or seeing the words, just repeating from listening) or repeating phone conversations. That was extremely pointless at that stage when I just want to know basic things. I would not have a conversation on the phone with anybody when I am just starting to learn Italian. But it would be nice to know how to say: ''Hi, How are you?'', ''I would like to order....'', and ''Can I have a bill?''. I spoke with few teachers about my concerns but I was just told to have a faith in the method. I paid for two weeks but lasted a week and half. In my second week, I just lost all hope that they will teach me properly and I left. Also, some teachers have a bit of attitude. I had a very unpleasant incident with one teacher and that just cemented my decision to leave. If I can't even ask a question, what is the point to stay? I feel that I chose the wrong school and that I just wasted 2 weeks and a lot of money. Probably, I would learn more by myself by just watching videos on Youtube. P.S. I speak 3 languages so I know how it is in different schools.

* Very friendly and highly motivated teachers * A nice, relaxed atmosphere * The price is lower than other schools. My one criticism would be that during, at least, some of my time there, students who had different language levels were put into the same class. Apart from that, the teachers were excellent.

Quality of the teaching and the textbook.
A bit too much emphasis on grammar — i.e. teaching for the test which we took at the end of two weeks. Conversation was less successful. I would have enjoyed more social events rather than evening lectures.
