« Ich habe mein Italienisch durch meinen Aufenthalt hier in Siena sehr stark verbessern können. Ich habe in einem niedrigen Level begonnen und bin nun sehr weit fortgeschritten »

Der Sprachaufenthalt war eine einzigartige Erfahrung und eine persönliche Bereicherung. Durch das Leben in einer Gastfamilie taucht man in die örtlichen Traditionen und kulturellen Unterschiede vollends ein. Sämtliches Persona der Schule war ausgesprochen nett und hilfsbereit. Die Organisation der Kurse hat vortrefflich geklappt und die Atmosphäre im Unterricht war - auch aufgrund der tollen Lehrkraft! - angnehm. Das Lernen hat grossen Spass bereitet.Die Schule befindet sich in einem sehr alten, teilweise renovationsbedürfigen Gebäude, entsprechend sehen auch die Klassenräume aus. Es fehlen moderne Unterrichtsmaterialien und -medien. Im Unterricht wurde Wert auf die mündliche Ausdrucksweise gelegt und die bereits bestehenden Kenntnisse berücksichtigt. Trotz unterschiedlicher Niveaus der Studierenden hat die Lehrkraft versucht, alle Studierenden nach Möglichkeit zu fördern. Herzlichen Dank für die vorbildliche Betreuung!

« Ja, ich konnte mich in nur 3 Wochen fast um ein ganzes Niveau verbessern. Da ich praktisch ausnahmslos mit der Fremdsprache konfrontiert war, geriet ich nie in Versuchung, in der Muttersprache zu kommunizieren. Ich war froh, nur sehr, sehr wenige Deutsch sprachige Studierenden um mich zu haben. »

De taalreis in siena is een echte aanrader! Super school en super locatie Alle medewerkers op de school zijn erg behulpzaam je voelt je er na enkele dagen al helemaal thuis! Lessen worden op een hele leuke en persoonlijke manier gegeven "Studentenhuis" was erg netjes. En het was een perfecte locatie midden in het centrum Een keer per weer werd er een aperitivo georganiseerd. Er waren dagelijks verschillende activiteiten. Ook kon er vanuit school een wijntour geboekt worden. Dit was zeker ook een absolute aanrader! Een geweldige tijd in een prachtige stad!

Die Schule hat mir das Appartement vermittelt. Es war gross, ansprechend eingerichtet und mit allem ausgestattet. Die Geräte (Abwaschmaschine, Waschmaschine, Tumbler) und Installationen waren in sehr gutem Zustand. Das Schlafzimmer lag ruhig im Innenhof. Vielfältige und zahlreiche Freizeitangebote. Kein eigenes Ausflugsangebot, aber im Sekretariat konnte man auch touristische Busreisen buchen.Ich hatte als einzige zusätzlich das Kulturprogramm gebucht und erhielt 2x pro Woche super Einzelführungen durch alle wichtigen Sehenswürdigkeiten von einem Lehrer der Schule.

Do you think you've made progress?
« Ja. Ich konnte in die Sprache eintauchen und musste sie täglich anwenden. Zudem wurde mir auch viel Grammatik vorgestellt, z.T. war es Wiederholung, zum Teil volltsändig neu. Die Lehrer waren sehr geduldig und warteten bis ich den Satz formuliert hatte. Anschliessend wiederholten sie ihn in korrekter Form. Dadurch lernte ich am meisten. »
School highlights
« Das Kulturprogramm (Führungen, Kochkurs, Ausflüge) war sehr interessant und lehrreich und brachte mir das Land und die Leute noch näher als der reine Unterricht. Die Lehrer waren sehr engagiert, hilfsbereit und zugänglich. »
Top tips
« Sämtliche Zusatzangebote der Schule waren toll. Sie gaben zusätzliche Möglichkeit, die Sprache zu üben und die Schüler kennenzulernen, die nicht in derselben Klasse waren. Zudem vermittelten sie viel über Geschichte, Kultur und Gewohnheiten der Italiener. »

Until now, everything has been perfect. The work of the ESL agency is very professional. The journey went very well, the school is beautiful and has a relaxed atmosphere. My hosts, Paola and Marco, are very nice and lovable and I get on well with them. It is also good for me, because neither of them speaks German or English. I must speak Italian all the time, which has allowed me to extend my vocabulary radically. I regret only one thing: I must go back home on Saturday!!! :(

Dante, Siena
Duration: 2 weeks

I spent two weeks in Siena in order to improve my language skills in Italian. The ESL booking worked perfectly and my question and doubts were treated by phone to my complete satisfaction. Siena is a beautiful town. The language school is easy to find and everybody was incredibly nice and friendly. We were a wonderful class with international students. I was accommodated in a shared apartment with other students. The apartment was simple, furnished in a practical way and clean. The breathtaking view over the Tuscan countryside and the town of Siena made me forget the Spartan aspect of the apartment. All in all, my stay was wonderful and the next language stay is already planned!

Speaking Italian outside of the school, in a social or cultural context, is a great way to develop the skills you have learned in class. That’s why each week our partner school offers students the chance to participate in activities, some free or at reduced prices, during the week and at the weekends, such as Italian cinema, public lectures and guided tours for discovering Siena’s secrets, excursions and olive oil, cheese and wine tastings, not to forget the nights out organised by the school and the parties on offer in Siena itself.
