Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

Had a good time. Really enjoyed the people involved in the program. The course was well organised and the institute was well located, right in the centre of Florence, the 'Centro Storico'. Nothing can really beat this! The stuff was extra-careful for all of my needs and followed me from day 1 till the end of the program with care and support. Also the professor were extremely attentive to my needs as a students and tailored the difficulty of the program on my level of italian. Just great! I absolutely reccomend this.
