    I have to be honest, I was affraid not to be able to communicate with the teacher and therefore not be able to enjoy the class, but it all went really good. This program taught me so much. The atmosphere of Florence, the kindness and understanding of the teacher as well as the helpful, organized system that of Studiainitalia staff made it all worth it. I strongly recommend it to anyone who wants to dive into an atmosphere of learning, open-mindedness and sharing.
    I spent 3 weeks in Florence, and I loved every bit of this experience.
