Study Italian in the heart of historic Salerno! Our school is situated on Via Roma, one of the busiest streets in town. Housed in the Palazzo Angrisani, a magnificent old building facing out onto the sea, the school offers all of the necessary facilities and comforts for learning Italian. There are 14 classrooms, some with a balcony and sea views. After your lesson, you can continue learning outside of the classroom, whether it's in the language lab, the computer room with internet access or the library. Finally, the cosy student lounge is the perfect place to enjoy a chat over coffee with your fellow international students!

Je n'ai pas eu d'évaluation orale après mon test écrit. L'enseignant était un peu fumiste.Salerno est une ville magnifique, l'école est située près de la mer et c'est très agréable. Les petites rues de la vieille ville sont sales, cela gâche la visite. Un excellent accueil et une belle visite culturelle de la ville à l'arrivée. Les activités de loisir sont d'intérêt variable. Les salles de classe sont exiguës, auraient besoin d'être rafraîchies. Elles sont très chaudes car la climatisation est faible et les élèves sont nombreux et serrés autour de la table.

« Ich habe kleine Fortschritte erzielt. Ich hatte vorher aber nur geringe Grundkenntnisse und das es für mich eher schwer gemacht, da im Unterricht nur italienisch gesprochen wird (ist natürlich logisch). Am Anfang habe ich so gut wie nichts verstanden und das freie Sprechen in der Klasse ist mir sehr schwer gefallen. Aber zum Schluss der einen Woche war es ok. Als Anfängerin wäre es bestimmt besser gewesen, wenn ich mehrere Wochen gebucht hätte, aber das lässt sich mit meinem Berufsleben leider nicht vereinbaren. Aber generell war ich zufrieden und werde hier in Deutschland auf jeden Fall weiter machen. »

Als Italienfan gebe ich hier 5 Sterne. Deutsche Maßstäbe anzuwenden wäre unangemessen. Das Land, die Stadt ist beeindruckend und wird zu 99 % von sehr freundlichen Menschen bewohnt. Ein paar Muffel hat man überall. Die Stadt ist überschaubar, hat einen kleinen Altstadtanteil und viele kleine Cafés und Geschäfte. Auch wenn es dem Land nicht sehr gut geht, merkt man den Menschen dies nicht an. Immer entspannt und freundlich. Wie schon gesagt, alle Lehrkräfte waren extrem engagiert. Das Angebot war vielfältig, aber um alles zu nutzen wären 4 Wochen, von meiner Seite aus, schöner gewesen.

Testimonials

Caspar Bischof
Caspar Bischof

I liked Salerno and its culture, it is a quiet and safe city, I like the typical life and the historical centre and I think it is a valid alternative in the south of Italy; I appreciate the organization, the kindness and the helpfulness of the staff in the   school, the good and patient teachers and the accommodation in the family who was very kind. I had an excellent experience, and unfortunately the time available is too short to completely experience the life here in Salerno. This is a good school. Thank you.

Duration: 6 weeks

My stay was perfectly organised. Someone went to pick me up at the airport and my family was great (thank you!). I strongly recommend this school. The teachers are helpful and very competent! The school organises lots of activities outside of class. All in all, I spent 6 wonderful weeks in Salerno. I will definitely go back there!
