    The management of studiainitalia could not have been better. I am delighted with the Italian course I am taking, in my case, at the Machiavelli school in Florence. It is an excellent school where learning is not only easy but also fun. The classes are dynamic and enjoyable and the staff are charming.

    Dear Lara, I had my last Italian lesson today. I am very happy indeed with everything about the school. The location is excellent in one of the prettiest and quietist so squares. The secretary, Helen was outstandingly helpful in all practical matters.My teacher Vincenza was exceptional. She was highly engaging, skilled and experienced. All the class greatly enjoyed her teaching and said on many occasions how much they appreciated her. I have a lifetime’s experience in the UK education system, including work as as Ofsted inspector and would find it hard to suggest any area for improvement. I am sure the school know how lucky they are to have her but please could you make sure this email reaches the management of the school.All good wishes, Venetia, UK

    The time I spent in Italy with Studiainitalia was simply magical, it was an unforgettable experience, the teachers were very nice and patient, making it easier for me to adapt to the new language and the city, the infrastructure was comfortable, central and the didactic material was very appropriate for learning; I thank Federica for her guidance in each of the steps of the process because I live in Venezuela and from here it is a little more difficult because of the issue of the approval of foreign currency; I also appreciate her kindness during my stay in Florence; the accommodation was perfect for me with an Italian family, very nice and close. For those who want to learn Italian and live a great experience with themselves! studiainitalia is an excellent opportunity!

    riassumo in cinque parole: è stato una autentica delizia!!! I have no words to describe Maurizio and Simonetta’s kindness and gentleness, the classes and the “congiuntivo”, fantastic, and the atmosphere I breathed with Benedetta, the teacher, and the classmates, endearing. It has been two weeks of real pleasure. I think I’ll come back again. And what can I say about you! You are true professionals who exude affection and good work.
