Welcome to Florence
If you are a foreigner intending to study Italian language and culture in Florence, you are about to plunge into a city with a huge cultural and artistic heritage from the past, yet one that is modern and vibrant and always on the move.
Feedback - what people say about us
A small school, where you will really do one thing: learn Italian! The classes are very small (at least in the non-touristic months of October and November), and during my 3 weeks stay, I had nearly private tuition (2 students in class) for the price of a class course, with an excellent teacher. Ok, some people would prefer bigger classes, in order to meet more people. But according to me, it's no use having big classes of 15 students, as you'd only speak English with them... so if you really want to learn Italian, I can recommend this school. I made the preparation for a CILS exam, and got an excellent preparation. - Ron (Germania)
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
