Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

The two-week individual course, or super-intensive course as it is called here, was a great experience and made a big difference in my language. Thanks to the good structure of the courses with grammar lessons in the morning and conversation exercises in the afternoon, you will be linguistically 'fit' in no time at all. Especially my two teachers Caris and Sara got the best out of my language skills and after two weeks of intensive courses I can speak Italian much better than I would have expected at the beginning. During the course you will receive various working documents, which, however, often lack the finishing touches to structure and clarity. In order to make the experience even better overall, I would have liked a somewhat more modern learning environment. If you take this course, you can be sure not only to improve your Italian significantly, but also always get the best tips for restaurants, excursions and 'must do's. All in all definitely recommendable! A big thank you at this point!
