I am a teacher, so I know what I am talking about when I say the standard of the teaching was VERY high. The course was most enjoyable and useful. Absolutely full marks to the school.
Excellent teachers and course work. Exceeded my expectations.
The course was hard work but very enjoyable. I just wish I'd been able to spend more time in Milan to progress further.
Just perfect! Skilled and sweet teachers who all make an incredible effort. Also to make sure every single student gets the most out of their course. Bravo! My host was very good. Good location, friendly and with everything you needed.
I thoroughly enjoyed it and would have liked to have spent more time there (not just one week). The teachers were amazingly professional and dynamic and language points were made clearly.
Very good course again (second time in this school). Everybody at the school really puts in a great effort to make it a good stay for all the students. It's definitely a place where you've all the possibilities to learn a lot if you want.
The course was excellent as was the teaching. Staff at school were very very helpful and friendly. I enjoyed the course very much. I could not fault the school on anything. Really helpful teachers - excellent!
The course was well presented in a professional manner. My host was very friendly though and kept the place clean. It was a very enjoyable two weeks and I wish I could have stayed longer.
The course was great and I really enjoyed every minute of it.

How to get there

I have just come back from Milan, and I had a brilliant time there! There is so much to see and do, and it’s not all about the shopping (although that is excellent too!). I have been to Milan a couple of times now, and it is a city that I would love to continue visiting. I have no hesitation in recommending Milan as an excellent location in which to learn Italian, as for someone that is interested in Italian culture, history, art, music and shopping (like me), Milan is perfect! It is also an excellent location from which to visit other exciting locations in Northern Italy, such as the lakes, Turin, Verona and Genoa!
The first evening I arrived, I took a gentle stroll down to the Piazza del Duomo, which is in the heart of the city and very close to the school. In the evening light, the Duomo looked positively magical, glowing a bright ivory in the setting sun. Perched on the steps of the Duomo, I ate my gelato (the most delicious ice cream I have ever tasted!) and watched the Milanese heading through the piazza, on their way to aperitivo, and then dinner.
