“The course was very interesting and useful. I learnt a lot of new things about Italy apart from the language. My language improvement has been huge, even though I have only been learning for 2 months. The teachers are very good and skilled. I also liked the accommodation in apartments, which are in very good condition and close to the historic center of Florence.”
