Feedback - what people say about us
Thank you for the wonderful week of tuition I undertook at your school in April. I had a really great time and enjoyed your knowledgable teachers very much. I thought at the beginning, when they tell you - "English is forbidden from now on for this week" - I will never understand the language. But, they are so good and expressive when they are teaching you, that by the end of the week, I understood almost all of their lessons.
VIDEO Language & activities for school parties
The aim of this program is to spend a week or more with your own class surrounded by Italian daily life, practicing the language and exploring the many aspects of Italian culture and society.
Feedback of an Italian teacher:
"Tante grazie! Siamo ritornati molto bene, ma con il rammarico di dover lasciare Firenze! Ci siamo trovati veramente benissimo, sia a scuola (i ragazzi) che con le famiglie (i ragazzi) e anche nel "nostro" B & B (noi due insegnanti). Raccomanderemo sicuramente il centro e tutti i servizi. E chissà, forse ritornerò con un'altra classe già presto. Saluti a tutti!" -Annemarie Schweizer
