What our students said about Sestri Levante

Rating: 5/5

5.0

The city is quite small (20,000-22,000 inhabitants) and cozy. You probably read about the two bays in other reviews :) Also, there is a railway along the coast, which makes it possible to go from Sestri Levante to other cities for a walk or on an excursion, ше very convenient.

There are a maximum of 6 people in a group, it is very convenient, everyone has enough time and attention from teachers. On the other hand, other school´s activities are not divided into groups, everyone comes together. This provides an opportunity to meet other students. It turns out that the social circle is not limited to these 6 people, any student can communicate with all the rest of students who are cuttently at the school, it is very interesting.
The school itself made an exceptionally good impression on me. Everything is very warm-hearted there. It is small and as a result everyone knows everyone. Monica currently fulfils the functions of a secretary and director at the same time. If a student has any problem, they can easily communicate directly with the director. Paolo is also there. He will also always help you if you have questions, and if a student forgets words and starts to get nervous (as it often happened to me), he will always say his eternal "calma, calma" and wait until you remember everything, showing with all his appearance that he has time to wait for you. And somehow you really feel calmer :) The location, of course, is worth mentioning separately. The school is located on the very shore in one of the bays. This building is visible on almost every travel postcard. Before or after classes, you can always go swimming, and you can hear the sea during the lessons.

I liked the school and the organisation. Although I am a little lazy, I think I have improved and I feel I am more fluent in Italian and want to continue to learn. I recommend the course.
I recommend to learn at Sestri Levante.

Teachers and location. All the teachers are highly educated not only on the subject but on how to teach, how to explain issues (psychological education). The view from the window is amazing.
This was the school's first year in Sestri Levante (there is an old ABC in Firenze), but the organization is really nice. Didn't find any issues to improve.

Key Facts about Sestri Levante

Sestri Levante: Sestri Levante has a refined island atmosphere and is one of Liguria's loveliest gems and although this glittering stretch of coast is hugely popular it still retains pockets of extreme natural beauty and profound authenticity. This narrow strip of jagged coastal town once stood as an island in itself, now it is joined by a strip of land to the mainland and sits between the deep-blue waters of the Mediterranean and the ruggedly Ligurian mountains. Its like something from a fairy-tale! There is a romantic harbour, a quiet beach and a boardwalk on one side and a seafront promenade, a bigger beach and a lively atmosphere on the other.
