“The school is simply wonderful. The teachers were marvelous. The school building was clean and organized, and the location fantastic. I had a wonderful month learning Italian in Florence. Thank you! My accomodation was great! Rossella, the owner of the apartment where I was staying, was very nice. I had a large, clear, sunny room, in an apartment just two blocks from the Duomo and three blocks from school. It was wonderful!”

“Your school is very organized and well directed. It provides a very open environment where students are given the opportunity to meet and share cultures. The teachers are very helpful and very nice. I learned a lot. Being incredibly helpful, they found me a new apartment right away upon finding out about my allergies. My roommate was great and we got along great.”
