My class teacher.
The teaching was good and generally the school was good enough. I was disappointed in the accommodation and it took a bit of effort to cope with a rather difficult host.

Friendly, welcoming, well organised
As a complete beginner, I found it hard to keep up with the speedy progress of the class, amidst more advanced students. Also, I found it hard to do any revision or study, because I was just visiting for a few days and was primarily interested in seeing some of the city while I had any free time. Perhaps, smaller more experience based classes might be better, or a class for short term tourists who would like a bit of conversational Italian? Otherwise, I enjoyed the class and social interaction, thanks for all.

I've always found a contact person, who took care of my concerns. The size of the school is almost "familiar". The recreational activities were carried out with much effort. Merci.
I would appreciate it if more information about the outline and the structure of the lessons would be available.

I liked the teachers best. The classroom acoustics were very poor, and the class was a bit too large with nine students, and there was no particular time put aside to talk to the teacher individually about specific problems or questions.
Although the staff was very helpful there was just not enough time with the teachers and the class size was slightly too large.
