The city is a lovely place to do a course. It has great transport links to get there and it's not too touristy but enough that there are plenty of museums etc.

Salerno feels safe and has a beautiful Old City....

Salerno feels safe and has a beautiful Old City. The beach closest to the school (Santa Teresa?) is ok, but a bit dirty and frequented by rather dodgy people. But there are nicer beaches to the east of the city center, and the beaches of the Amalfi coast can be easily reached by ferries ('traghetti') or by bus. The problem with the public buses is that they don't stick to the schedule, and especially in the evenings, there's a risk that they never show up (this happened to me and several other students at the Accademia Italiana in various places on the Amalfi coast).

The staff, they are all friendly and competent. Teachers (mostly women) are patient and understanding and they seem competent and motivated. Time flies in class (2 hours, break, 1 hour) and there are quite a few social activities in the afternoon. But these activities are enough for a month. If you intend to stay longer, you will finish all the activities.
It could be refurbished, especially the toilets. Classes can hold up to 10 people but with all the material it is hard to fit 10 people in there. I think they should only place 5 o 6 adults in each class. Chairs and tables need to be changed, and they should paint the walls and change the lights. The decorations seems old. The staff is so nice and so competent that the rest is not that important. The general lounge is a bit empty.

What I liked most about the school: the location, the teachers and the helpful administrative staff
The teachers are great but the (presumably management-imposed?) focus on grammar rather than on specific topic-centered vocabulary seems a bit outdated to me.

The people at the school are welcoming and friendly. The teachers are very good.
The accommodation was generally good but some of the facilities need some attention e.g. the shower.

The school had a large number of students of various ages when I was there in October. As a result, there were classes for all levels of Italian, and there were many activities organised by the school in addition to the classes. Teaching was of a high quality. The school organised visits to Pompeii, various parts of the Amalfi Coast and other places of interest both during the week and on Saturdays.
A very good school, particularly suited to people who wish to combine improving their Italian with having an excellent holiday.

Medium sized, non-touristy city that has everything you need. Excellent variety of afternoon activities from free seminars to movies to cooking lessons to tours of nearby cities or even Pompeii. Regular weekly lesson structure with unit tests on Fridays.
wide range of language levels within one class was frustrating at times.

The quality of teaching
Leisure activities are expensive, unattractive and almost exclusively focused on the " food." Some examples: the visit of the city tells us less than we would have done with only a brief guide to the hand (the oldest church was closed and the school has not organized a special opening for us); the screen for movies is a television screen and the school has not managed to install it properly; Furthermore, the screening was preceded by no prior explanation; we really felt the school staff did as little as possible. I can compare because I was staying in Tropea last year. There, the staff was committed much to make us love the place. I only have seen the director of Salerno for a few seconds. In Tropea, the manager was always present, knew each one of us. We have not received either practical information about the city (bus tickets, etc). Well, except as a result of culinary apprenticeship excursions, no common meal or drink was organized to allow new students to know the others (in Tropea, two hours of introduction followed by a shared meal). In short, this aspect of the school was disappointing and it is even more distressing that Salerno is a fascinating city that deserves much more than its reputation.

The school was across the road from a beautiful park.
There were no social activities. Or if there were I wasn't aware of them. Due to there being only 1 other student there wasn't a social feel. The teachers, although they were lovely, were not very inclusive. The organisation and the reception aspect of the school was fantastic. However. Classes were very short during the morning 9:15/9:20 - 11:20/11:30. This meant I missed out on 5 additional hours for the week. Because of this I felt my learning was limited
