Getting lost in Venice is a good thing!
It was late at night when I arrived near Venice. I had arrived a day early, so I stopped right in front of the bridge to the island, and from the parking lot I had a wonderful view over the city. I couldn’t wait to go and visit it! That night I went to sleep feeling excited and happy: it was not going to be my first time ever in Venice, but the idea of going back to that wonderful place made me smile all night.
The next day I got up early to take the bus into the city. I fell in love with the city again, the moment I got off the bus. The city was still as romantic as I remembered, and walking through it again made me feel happy. The city has so much to offer: history, architecture, culture, art, food, romance…
The class mix was fascinating...German, Danish, Russian,Chinese, Japanese, Brazilian and Czech among others. Some who had attended the course for two months on a full-time basis were quite fluent.
I had two excellent teachers and the time simply flew by, which must mean I was having fun. All the students took the course seriously and did the homework every day. The social programme was excellent too.
The teachers were great and the accommodation was good.
The teachers were excellent and gifted with controlling the learning experience along with supportive and fun. I would definitely join this class/school again.
The office staff at the school in Venice and my teacher were wonderful.
