Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

i had 2 teachers, both of which helped me a lot in apprehending and practicing the language! All in all, I had a great time! Classes were at the same time interesting, fun, and instructive. I felt they really tried hard to make it easy and excellent to know italian. The best thing of all is that it was very small group of students so it felt like very very intensive and private lessons. Which is something very rare nowadays. The stuff at Istituto Europeo does care about its students, for real! And you can tell!
