“I met a group of 5 of my best friends from Argentina (where I grew up) for just one week of Italian. We had a wonderful experience in our classes with our teacher Savino; so much so that we wished we could have stayed longer. It's in my plans to return for a month or two. Florence is beautiful and the school is in the middle of the city: We took coffee breaks at a cafe by the Duomo; best experience you could have!”
