Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

A took some introductory classes in italian at Istituto Europeo and it was an awesome experience. My teachers were very supportive and guided me, hand by hand, class by class, learning the essentials of conversational and written italian. It was all very smooth and their methodology was very helpful. The city is amazing. I had never been to Florence before and I'm sure I'm going to go back soon enough! I cannot really forget it! and the food! don't start me on the food! I couldn't get enough! Awesome, AWESOME experience! It is really the best place to study Italian!
