    The Istituto Venezia was wonderful. Nicco, my teacher, was amazing, fun, patient and informative. I plan to return to take online courses starting in January and take face to face classes in April. LOVE this school!

    Mi sentivo abbastanza felice di parlare il poco italiano che conoscevo. La mia fiducia è cresciuta rapidamente. Mi sono sentita supportata dal mio insegnante che è fantastico. Ho amato il tempo trascorso all’Istituto Venezia.

    Al di là dell’Istituto, ho trovato frustrante non avere molte opportunità di parlare bene l’italiano perché le persone che lavorano nei bar/ristoranti devono parlare inglese.
    Tuttavia ho avuto opportunità al mercato, nei negozi di beneficenza locali e in generale nei negozi e mercati locali. Le persone sono state molto disponibili e mi sono sentito rilassato.

    I was completely happy with the result of my one month study. The school is excellent, I left happy with the level obtained. The teachers are all very friendly and helpful. My stay was undoubtedly the most beautiful experience, the lady was very kind, willing to share and show me Venice.

    How can I not give you 5 stars after all the experiences I have had thanks to you! I’m back in Paris but my heart is still hibernating in Venice. The school is fantastic, the classes are great fun and the teachers are super friendly. They organise many extra-curricular activities in the afternoons which not only enrich your knowledge about Venice etc. but also help you to get to know the other students, to integrate into a group so that you can go out, visit together, practise Italian…. There hasn’t been a time when I haven’t made a thousand and one friends with you and then I’ll come back to see them again (either I go or they come). In fact, I’m already invited back to Venice in April and I’m staying with a friend for a week, the city is very beautiful and has a dreamlike atmosphere linked to the water that you can’t see in any other city, because Venice is unique. Luckily, I arrived when the Carnival was about to end so I didn’t eat so many tourists. In somma” the experience was wonderful! Until next time Federica, e grazie tante!

    My experience in Venezia was spectacular. The academic level, the teachers, the administrative staff, the cultural and social activities, everything was always very organized and at an optimal level, and my Italian studies at this school were definitely a very good decision. Thank you very much for your help and concern in meeting my expectations.

    The course in which the Director placed me was very good, as it allowed me to complete what I had not learnt in Firenze, and I would like to highlight the extraordinary way in which Professor Giacomo managed the class, the timing and the way in which he guided the students to discover the grammatical rules, from my teaching experience, and the pleasant school atmosphere. The accommodation, although far away, allowed me to visit Venice on a daily basis, Sonia was an excellent hostess and very attentive, I repeat the thanks expressed in the Firenze course to Lara and Federica for their constant support, thank you!

    Dear Federica and Lara, first of all I would like to apologise for my delay in informing you about my stay in Venice. My opinion is very positive, except for the first house where I stayed and as I already informed you the coexistence with the lady was a disaster, as you solved it so well, everything was arranged very well, thank you very much. The school everything was great: the teachers were very responsible, good methodology and a great interest in our learning, the afternoon activities were very good and very efficient to solve the problems of the students, the second house I was in was wonderful, the people: mother and daughter were very kind, polite and comfortable…you can see that the balance could not be better but I have to say the reality. Bravo for Studioinitalia and for you, Federica, as I know you personally I repeat my thanks and Lara too, I know that the good functioning is the work of a responsible and well organized team like yours, bravo to all of you, receive my affection and gratitude, a hug for both of you.

    Everything was great. When I arrived I had the documentation and the key to the room where you had told me. The residence was very quiet and the room was very nice too (they cleaned it and changed the sheets and towels once a week and everything). The only bad thing was that it was very hot and there wasn’t even a fan, the school was very good too. The teachers were very good and very available (especially Silvia). And the guy at the reception was also great, advising on extracurricular and cultural activities. The atmosphere of the school, in general, was unbeatable and it was a very good experience. I’ve learned a lot of Italian and I’ve also enjoyed the city a lot. Thanks for your advice and see you next time (which I hope will be next summer !!!!).
