  • I wanted to lern in the intensive course as much as possible in one week. I know, these few days could only be a first step, but I wanted to get a feeling for the language, I wanted to get some grammar instructions and some conversation tools.
    And I wanted to have a good time in Bologna with other pupils. I looked forward to the cooking courses and other highlights after the school.

  • I had a really good time in Bologna. There were many so nice people in my class from all over the world.
    The teachers were perfect - very good an always friendly! Thank you all!
    This first little step was very important for me and it would not be the last one!

    A whiteboard instead of a blackboard with chalks.

  • It would be helpful for the beginners to get some more work documents with the most important rules of the grammar.

  • I would have appreciated if the teachers spend some of the communication time to improve the pronunciation of the students and the right grammar while speaking. There was a lot of communication which is very good, but with awkward accents, and it did not get better at the end of the week. I suddenly realized that I adapted a bit the Spanish and French accents of my class-mates, what a horror! I got pronunciation help in the restaurants by the servers, but not from the teachers.

  • While communicating also B1 students forget the simplest grammar rules of A1 (male, female, singular, plural) and only seem to be aware of the grammar during the grammar lessons but do not transfer to everyday use. Most students need help to pronounce more like an Italian and to get in use the grammar they learned transferred into their spoken Italian.

  • to get a good base for the structure of italian language and be able to do a conversation

  • the structure was teached really good. The teachers (Maria, Stefania) were great. For the first days with Massimo it was a little bt harder, to learn the structure. This is maybe not a problem of Massimo, but myself as i need to get used to learn, which i did not in such a particular way for ages

  • Quite good. My expectation was, that it is not that difficult to learn the language, but this was just my subjective approach.
    For me it would be helpful to improve the organisation of documents, to have a clearer structure for review it and to dig into it at any time, once you want to repeat or deep-diving the structure of language

  • Mi è piacuto il stile di insegnamento.
    Mi è piaciuto anche il modo in cui gli insegnanti si rapportavano con gli studenti. le lezioni erano sempre molto stimolanti.
    Mi sono piaciute anche le lezioni extra due volte al pomeriggio.

  • Nelle ultime due settimane, le letture delle conversazioni sono state meno efficienti rispetto alle prime settimane. la settimana scorsa c'era troppa differenza di livello tra gli studenti e le lezioni per me erano noiose, questa settimana ci sono troppi partecipanti anche se corrisponde al numero massimo di studenti e di conseguenza è molto rumoroso e non si può concentrarsi

  • I was expecting a very basic course where i could learn from the beginning how to build a sentence and start a conversation

  • The output of the course and the intensive classes where everybody had time to speak

  • Tonly thing is that you get thrown into a class that has been going on for a week or more and therefore dont necesarily get the basics first. But i understand its difficult with people starting every week

  • Ho cercato sull’Internet per scuole d’Italiano per stranieri.
  • Essere completamente immersa nella lingua, approfondire sia la grammatica che il lessico. Anche incontrare studenti di altri paesi.

  • È stata un’esperienza ottima. Giuliana e Nazzarena sono bravissime – le loro attività erano creative, coinvolgenti e divertenti. Mi è piaciuto molto conoscere e discutere con gli altri studenti, e ho imparato cose interessanti da loro. Ho anche apprezzato le attività le sere e l’opportunità di conoscere studenti delle altre classi. E grazie a Marco per le belle passeggiatte!

  • Mi sarebbe piaciuto avere più consigli per parlare con richezza e sfumatura. Lavorare in coppie o piccoli gruppi ci ha permesso di parlare più lungo – è stata una buona pratica. Però così non abbiamo ricevuto tante correzzioni o suggerimenti per come migliorare.

  • Per le due lezioni supplementari martedì e giovedì pomeriggio, c’erano troppi studenti – è stato difficile di discutere con la professoressa. Sarebbe stato meglio d’avere più insegnanti nella sala, o di ridurre il numero di studenti nel gruppo.

  • Per chi ha le lezioni alle 11:15-12:45 e alle 1:15-2:45, la pausa non basta per mangiare, soprattutto se la prima lezione finisce un po’ tardi. Sarebbe possibile d’avere una pausa più lunga?

  • A friend of mine was here many years ago and suggested this school ( sorry I cannot write in Italian as my keyboard does not accept Italian words)
  • That I can refresh the language
    A small class with intensive learning
    Excursion with the groups

  • I could refresh my Italian and have spent one full day in Italian language (95%) and I also spent an evening with local Zontians only in Italian language
    I have made progress in grammar as well.

  • For me the class was too big, I expected it to be smaller and more intensive.

    I wanted to do it in a short and intensive way, to achieve a good progress.

  • The beginning is done. But I will have a long way to go to speak italian.

  • In the first week, the "approfondimento e fissazione grammaticale" was a very good supply for me, to get helb with mio compiti. It would be nice if you could offer such a supply not only once a week. In the second week, the "approfondimento e fissazione grammaticale" was a "normal" lesson with new content. Maybe that was because of the public holiday on monday.
    So my "advice" or idea for improvement is: two or three times a week, in the afternoon, an optional offer for individual exercise and consolidation.

  • To make a quick review of grammar, and to develop speaking skills

  • Grammar review was not quick but was rather detailed. Took some time to understand the method of the school.
    I liked that there were a lot of activities outside the school building. This was beyond my expectations.
    Environment was very friendly and fun, again beyond my expectations.

  • I would have liked to practice more with listening to dialogues, and repeating dialogues, rather than free conversation which was encouraged. I think free conversation is more suitable for those who already speak Italian well.

  • The physical conditions in the school are charming, but challenging - some of the rooms are too small for 10-12 students. Some of the rooms have a real bad acustic. It might be a good idea to improve the physical sorroundings and upgrade the furniture as well as the screens, that are way too small for everybody to have a good view.

  • The conversation lessons could in my opinion be made more relevant with more subjects on Italian culture, history and way of life etc.

  • Perhaps it would be good to make sure that communication between host and student is possible in terms of language, if that's possible. For me, this was quite difficult, especially in advance, and especially at my last accommodation. But maybe that also had personal reasons. That's why I didn't feel very comfortable. In addition, care should be taken to ensure that the correct address or house number is actually passed on. On Sunday, when I arrived, I was standing in front of the wrong front door and was only able to find the right address with the help of locals.
