Student reviews & feedback

I really enjoyed attend the Italian language course in Napoli. The teachers were performing, nice , with good mood and helpful! I learnt a lot during this one week training course. the only aspect I regret : I wish i could develop more my spontaneous speaking instead of working on the conjugation but, nevertheless I can understand it. Great experience!

The group was small (5 students) and motivated (mainly persons in their 40's), the teachers very professional and friendly which helped us to improve the language rapidly.

The apartment was big, with a nice view and located in a great place in the center so easy to wander around the city and to be on time at the school ! Regarding the lady who hosted me, she was lovely, very helpful, generous and educated. She explained me many aspects of the Napolitan culture and the interesting places to visit.

The service provided by Apple Language Courses was optimate, very professional and friendly. I would like to thank the staff of Apple Language Courses as well as the staff of the school and the lady who hosted me as I spent a wonderful time in Napoli.

I loved the course and felt that the size of group was very conducive to learning and speaking. Staff were very well prepared and the pace was excellent, I never felt bored and enjoyed the frequent opportunities for speaking. It has made a huge difference in my confidence and motivation to continue learning Italian

I did not stay with the family as I intended due to the sudden change in my circumstances for coming to Naples, and located myself with a friend which helped me enjoy the stay and programme as she speaks Italian and thoroughly enjoyed hearing about my lessons every day

Congratulations to the school for the high standards you develop and maintain in the programme. From the first day everything I experienced was very professional, services, extra curricular offers and staff in reception etc were great. The only thing I was not clear about was the start time of the classes, as before I came I had information that it was to be 9.00 and it took me a couple of days to see that it had changed!

I did the intensive course for 1 week. 5 days, 4 hours lessons. Classes of 8-10 persons, of all ages and nationalities. All students in my class were of the same level; good selection! Teacher only spoke italian during the lessons, which was good for practising. I learned al lot!

The teachers were excellent. They continually moved the class forward. They got to know the students and were able to use this information to advantage in the discussions in our classes. My host was very friendly and very near the school.

The staff and teachers were super. My private lesson daily was the best instruction I have had. The teachers in the group class would go over things and let my afternoon teacher know of my weaknesses and she would work patiently (and I do mean patiently) with me. They were helpful with restaurants, shops, directions, and all of my other requests. I wish I could have stayed another week.

The instructors put together a class comprised of people who had very similar strengths and weaknesses and concentrated on mitigating the weaknesses. I feel that I learned a good deal. The family experience was positive in that family members were very friendly. My ability to speak and comprehend improved greatly.

The intensive course was great! I was upset to have to leave after only a week. Even in just that time, however, I feel that my language skills improved greatly. I would take another course like this again in a heartbeat! The accomodation was comfortable and spacious. I liked that all of the other tenants were also students - it gave us something in common! The proprietor was also very friendly and flexible. After such an all-around wonderful experience, I will definitely be enrolling again!

Exactly what I wanted but with extras. With a one-to-one with my tutor for a forty hour intensive week of study I felt as if I'd been beaten up. But it felt great! Being able to dictate the pace of the week and to explore so many things without holding up a class was very, very useful. I started the week with just a basic understanding along with a few 'tourist phrases'. I finished the week with a far greater understanding of the structure of the language and an overwhelming confidence in my ability to proceed. My tutor was a true professional allowing me to explore the framework of Italian verbs and grammar at a pace which stretched me enough to learn comfortably. There's loads of stuff I'd like to add about how great the whole experience was and how good it was to learn not only the language but the history of the country and it's people and how amazingly friendly the people are... but there's just not enough room!!

I thought the teachers were brilliant - really enthusiastic, caring and hard-working. The resources were all interesting and helpful and lessons were well-planned and well executed. The staff at the school reception were also very helpful and informative - helping with bus and train information and any other problems and queries. The range of after-school activities was also varied, interesting and suitable for a wide avariety of students. I would definitely recommend this school. The flat was large, clean, bright and extremely close to the school. The faciliies were excellent and I was very impressed with the building and location. I would certainly stay in the same flat again.

Fantastico! The school has only top notch instructors who really know the language, the culture and history. Gli insenganti e le secretarie si sono il piu milgliori e molto simpatico! The same goes for the staff of Language Courses Abroad. Scott Cather was extremely friendly and helpful - he always answered my questions in a rapid manner. BRAVO! I would highly recommend this program for anyone whether beginner or advanced and wish to continue their Italian studies.

The classes were small and everyone was encouraged to participate. My individual lessons were very good, they helped me to understand some Italian fundamentals that I had been struggling with for many years. The teaching and admin staff at the school were very helpful. The programme of extra activities provided by the school were very good too, giving a better understanding of Naples and Italy than provided by guide books I had read. My accomodation was ideal, a lovely modern apartment within a historic palazzo. I was able to study, cook and entertain with ease. The mix of students on the course was very good it was a pleasure to join the other students for dinner and to other outings.

Never neglet Napoli

View of Naples from Castel Sant'ElmoItaly’s third-largest city, Naples, is frequently, criminally overlooked. Many tourists, cruise ships and even Italian natives use Naples as a base to visit other parts of the Campania region of Italy. Naples is often just the first stop on a journey to the ancient, archaeological masterpiece of Pompeii, the picture-postcard scenes of the Amalfi Coast and beyond. Some people expect to get a feeling of Naples in just a few hours. Experiencing Naples in this way is a mistake. Below I hope to outline exactly why one week, let alone just one day, in Naples is never enough! Read more...
