Very good and nice teacher who had the ability to teach the Italian language in an incredibly good way.
Some of the exursions were not at all affordable.

Excellent, enthusiastic and knowledgeable teachers. Closeness to accommodation.
On the second week, the class size too big (11) which, perhaps, should have been split into two levels.

Teachers were very committed to helping students learn.
I learned very little in 4 weeks mostly because I simply didn't understand what was being said in Italian. I didn't even know when I was being asked a question in class let alone what the question might be. Pretty much a total waste of time and money trying to learn the Italian language for me.
