  4. Cliona

    very satisfied. I would definitely recommend you to others. I also wrote a glowing review on Anna as she is an excellent teacher and I thoroughly enjoyed the class.

  5. Mª Angeles

    Este curso intensivo ha sido muy interesante y muy provechoso para mí. He disfrutado a la vez que he aprendido en esta pequeña inmersión.
    La valoración es positiva aunque encontré un número de alumnos por clase excesivo.;se solucionó en la conversación pero no en la parte de gramática.
    El ambiente muy agradable.
    En cuanto a la residencia,muy bien situada y acogedora por parte de la señora. El baño excesivamente pequeño.
    Creo que repetiré.

  8. Pepa

    La semana que he estado en Bolonia ha sido genial. La ciudad es acogedora y con todos los servicios posibles.
    La escuela es del todo recomendable. Está en plena ciudad en un palacio de los más encantador. Agradezco a los profesores Francesco y Chiara su gran dedicación en las clases. El director, Massimo, es un gran profesional. Todos los trabajadores te ayudan en todo y no dudan en ofrecerte todo tipo de alternativas a tus peticiones o dudas.

  9. Ignacio

    Los cursos en la Scuola di Bolonia muy bien.
    Profesores estupendos como María y Estefanía, otros como Marina, dejan mucho qué desear por su poca profesionalidad.
    Studiainitalia siempre pendiente de cada detalle y al menor problema lo tratan de solucionar.
    Repetiré, pero en otra ciudad, pues Bolonia es demasiado tranquila en agosto y cara.

  10. Raquel

    Bologna was just a dream this summer. I had the time of my life. The way the classes and accommodation worked was fantastic. The city is magical, it feels like you go back in time and the cultural experience it offers is without comparison. The classes and teachers were well structured and competent and the level was also manageable for a beginner like me. You can always change it if it doesn’t work for you. I have to say that I would definitely repeat with Studiainitalia for future trips.

    Buenos días,
    La estancia en Bolonia ha sido perfecta,
    La propietaria de la vivienda en la que he estado alojado es un
    diez de persona, preocupada en todo momento por el bienestar
    del huesped y muy colaboradora en cuanto a información sobre
    la ciudad y el curso.
    El curso bien organizado y positivo con ambos cocineros en las
    tres clases que he estado.
    En general todo muy profesional y bien organizado.
    Volveré sin duda a otro curso.
    Un Saludo.
    Ricardo de la Torre.

    Una experiencia inolvidable! Mis mejores vacaciones! Gente fantástica, una escuela genial…. Yo estuve una semana haciendo curso de italiano y hice tres clases de cocina y lo recomiendo a todo el mundo! Una experiencia que se debe vivir si o si, si lo estas dudando no lo dudes, hazlo!!

    Studiainitalia lo organiza todo a la perfección, gran trabajo! Gracias por todo.

    Es la segunda experiencia que hago por aquí (antes Siena) y no creo que se quede aquí.

  13. Luisa

    Quisiera agradecer especialmente a Francesco por estas dos semanas de clases entretenidas. El personal muy amable y todo correcto. Creo que para destacar es el cuerpo de profesores. Volveria sin duda.

  14. Inmaculada

    Hola Federica, hola Lara,
    Ya de vuelta con mucho gusto os dejo mi comentario.
    Han sido dos semanas estupendas como las deseaba, una ciudad y región interesantísimas, el ambiente en la escuela muy agradable y el alojamiento como buscado expresamente para mi. He venido muy contenta. Muchas gracias por todo, ha sido estupendo.
    Os deseo un resto de verano relajado y feliz.
    Hasta pronto, un abrazo!

  15. Ada

    Hola!!!! La semana que he estado en Bolonia ha sido perfecta, la escuela me ha gustado muchísimo y en la casa no he podido estar mejor !!! Una experiencia estupenda !!! El año que viene me encantaría volver .!!!

  16. Cesar

    Comentar que la elección de Bologna fué un acierto. La ciudad tiene un encanto especial, no tan turística y con muchas opciones de ocio.
    Además tanto la escuela como mi casa estaban en plenio centro y se podía llegar a pie a cualquier parte.
    Y como no, desde la estación de Bologna Centrale visitar ciudades como Verona, Ravenna, Ferrara, Modena-Maranello ó Rimini. Como ves no paré.

    En cuanto la escuela me pareció correcta. Todos sin excepción son tremendamente amables. En cuanto al curso hubo cambio de profesores por vacaciones y cierta mezcla de niveles supongo que por falta de alumnos. Eso sí en la parte gramatical eramos 5-6 personas y en la oral unas 13-14. Perfecto. De todos modos quizá mi animo no estaba tan dispuesto como otras veces para el curso y sabes que después de 2-3 años de estudio el idioma italiano es más complejo y quizá no tan divertido. La escuela es por lo tanto totalmente recomendable
