WHO ARE OUR STUDENTS?
Our school is a stimulating international environment characterized by many different types of students coming from many countries all over the world. The majority of our students come from Asia, Latin America, Middle East and East Europe. Our students are very interested in Italian culture. In addition to the language courses they follow courses in art and crafts, music and singing and cooking.
Our lodging service offers various options for accommodation for the duration of the course. Single or double rooms with use of the kitchen or half board (breakfast and dinner). The apartments are occupied by either families, single people, or foreign students and are homeshare situations. All apartments are in the centre within walking distance from the school. The rooms are not all the same but they are all functional and clean.
The large majority of the students are adults but our administrative office is available to provide any information needed for all ages. When parents come for a visit, we are happy to support them with suggestions and recommendation about their stay.
The school organizes activities weekly most of which are free of charge. Others such as Italian cooking sessions and day trips in Tuscany and elsewhere in Italy are on a paid basis. Students interested in participating pay the fee directly to our administrative office. The prices depend on the type of activity and are always specified in advance.
