« Le dynamisme, la disponibilité du personnel, le nombre réduit d'étudiants par classes, l'âge moyen des étudiants, l'ambiance de classe et l'envie commune de chacun à vouloir investir son temps à progresser et pas forcément vouloir dépenser son temps en discothèque 🥴 ainsi que le respect de la ponctualité de tous »

« Hilfsbereite Lehrkräfte »

;Mein Aufenthalt war in jeder Hinsicht positiv. Die Schule befindet sich in einem alten Gebäude, ist sehr familiär und hat etwas "Gemütliches", Nostalgisches.Zu dieser Jahreszeit hat es sehr wenig Schüler. Wir waren insgesamt wohl bloss 10. Die Gruppenzusammensetzung hängt vom Zufall ab. Je kleiner die Gruppe, desto mehr Gewicht hat jede Person.Die Lehrkräfte sind enorm engagiert, freundlich, kompetent. Wenn die Gruppe zu klein ist, wird die Unterrichtszeit automatisch verkürzt. Ich arbeitete somit nur bis 12 Uhr statt bis 13 Uhr. Da nur sehr wenig Schüler an der Schule eingeschrieben waren, fanden die Aktivitäten nicht immer statt. Ausflüge gabs leider keine. Wie verfügbar die Lehrkräfte waren, kann ich nicht wirklich beurteilen. Jedermann war hilfsbereit.

Die Schule ist perfekt gelegen und die Schulvertreter sind ausnahmslos freundlich und hilfsbereit. Die Klassenzimmer waren aber sehr alt und in mittelprächtiger Verfassung, zudem waren sie kalt (nicht geheizt) und hatten wenig bis keine Fenster.

Dante, Siena
Duration: 2 weeks

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!

Host family
Staying with a host family provides you with an excellent opportunity to immerse yourself fully in local culture. Share daily life and experiences with your host family while practising your Italian in an authentic context. Host families live around 15-30 minutes away from the school on average; you will have your own bedroom, and you'll share breakfast and dinner with your host family every day of the week.

Shared apartment (ages 18 and over)
Staying in a single room, you will share the common areas of the apartment with your flatmates. This is a great opportunity to meet other international students, try out new Tuscan recipes and share the unique experience of a language course in Siena with your colleagues. The apartments are all located in the city centre, 5-15 minutes’ walk to the school.

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, such as the Italian cinema club, public lectures, guided tours to discover Siena’s secrets, excursions, and olive oil, cheese and wine tastings: not to mention the nights out organised by the school! Tickets, when required, are not included.
