“I am 74 and have been studying Italian on my own for about 10 years. I took an individual program for two hours per day for 2 weeks with Sara. She found my weaknesses, and we worked on the subjunctive, compound pronouns, and other tough aspects of the language. From the beginning, the school and its teachers provided a wonderful experience. I loved each session. Sara was well prepared with appropriate materials that I have kept, and the sessions were both enjoyable and productive. I would highly recommend this school to older students, as well as anyone else.”
