Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

It was as short as 10 days, and learning Italian while staying in Florence was a very valuable experience. It was a small class of 6 people, but it was always a fun atmosphere. The teacher also understood each person's level well and taught me in detail. The staff talked to me easily and I was able to spend with peace of mind. It was really encouraging. I would like to return again someday. Thank you very much!
