So unfortunately I did not have a trained teacher. I was very disappointed with my language stay. There was no language development and I just imagined it all differently.Show details » Read more...

I was very happy with my languag school experience.
I had individual italian classes 2x / week on mondays and fridays with 5 hours per day. Regarding housing I rented a private apartment as I also worked in a hospital the three other days of the week. Therefore I was not involved in any activities.
The location of the school was very central, the facilities were excellent. The staff in the school was friendly and flexible. My teacher Daniela was very professional and the quality of my lessons was very high. I think I learned a lot and also had fun.
It was also very greatful for your efforts Simone, as I had to reschedule some classes at the beginning. I always felt being in good hands.
I (AGE 62) FELT LIKE A STUDENT OF 25!
I HAD A VERY WARM WELCOME IN FAMILY AND CLASS.
FROM THE BEGINNING I FELT LIKE A MEMBER OF THE FAMILY.
IN CLASS I WAS LUCKY TO BE THE ONLY STUDENT. MIXTURE OF TEACHING (GRAMMAR, LISTENING,
TALKING AND EXCERCISING) WAS EXACTELY WAS I WAS LOOKING FOR. THE ORGANISATION AT
SCHOOL WAS GREAT.
I REALLY THANK THE FAMILY AND MY TEACHER (JULIA)
FOR THE WHOLE WEEK I WAS ALLOWED TO SPEND WITH THEM.
Homestays are carefully selected and offer students the opportunity to learn more about the local culture in a comfortable setting while studying Italian in Varese. These homes are often between 25 - 50 minutes away from the school by public transport. Families usually offer affordable meal plans that allow you to sample the local cuisine. If you have special requests or diet restrictions (because of religion or health reasons), please let us know in advance. Your housing starts on the Sunday before your first day of class and ends on the Saturday after your last day of class, unless otherwise noted. Learn more about homestay housing
