"Good and intelligent teachers; methods of teaching are very "traditional" (no use of modern technology)."

Ido Bassok, student from Israel

The teachers were cordial, cooperative and, as a whole, experienced, knowing well their profession. The secretary of the school was very polite and helpful. Meeting students from all over the world was fascinating.

"Small school with very nice, accomodating staff."

Daniel Ohlmann, student from Sweden

Everybody at the school was very nice and accomodating, the appartment was nice and central, quite loud until 2am. The school is very small, so it's difficult to find the right class for everyone. Therefore I can't really judge the quality of teaching. But they tried within their means to make it work, despite my 14 year-old being a complete beginner and quite timid. Excursions were nice, if a bit chaotically organized at times.

The location was good, and the school classes were too. Playing games in class helped me learn the language in a different way and it made it interesting. They had a good variety of activities every day!

"Beautiful place, very good school, friendly atmosphere."

Duygu Çağlar Doğan

When I arrived at Orbetello I said to myself, "What am I doing here, in this village so small for a month!" But this idea has never come to my mind any other time during my stay. It was truly a wonderful experience. I was one of the first students for the summer season of 2012. The other students arrived slowly. So in the early days there were few students. But this situation was still an advantage. Then I began to discover the area. I absolutely recommend you go to this area! It is a place that you must see before you die. It is worth it! Our teacher (Valentina) was really a good person and a good teacher. I'm so glad to have met you. The school (Orbit Language) was like home. We have become like a family so easily. I miss every one of them! Thank you so much! Always rivenire ..

"Favoloso!"

Linda R. Cuccurullo

What can I say? I have been coming back to Orbitlingua for four years; I love it! I adore my friend and teacher Valentina, as well as the administrators Marco and Veronque. They couldn't make me feel more welcome!! And my Italian improves each year by leaps and bounds.
