YOU ARE NOT A NUMBER

Every student who sets foot in our school is seen as an individual and not as another number in the subscribers list. It is essential for us to know their needs, their projects, their inclinations and his interests!
Each student will have a personal card where details of his path will be noted, following their progress with a progressive evaluation method. The attention for every single subscriber  is complete , favored by a family environment and a small number classes in which a personal and direct relationship is established.
Our idea is to create a pleasant and reassuring environment in which every student feels at home and has the opportunity to receive help also for any problems and difficulties that may arise in living in a town in a foreign country. We will be happy to help you and advise you in all areas of your Florentine experience …

MODERN TECNOLOGY

We use for our classes audio-visual materials and the tecnology is fully involved in our lessons.

SMALL CLASSES

Our average class size is 4-6 students, maximum 8. For this reason there is more interaction and the teacher has a chance to follow each student in their personal path. For us it is really important  to create homogeneous classes divided by levels of knowledge. This makes you feeling well in the course that you choose to attend.

ATMOSPHERE

Here you will find a reassuring, welcoming atmospheare, that tastes home, desire to stay together.

LOCATION

Our school is located in the historical centre of Florence, in a charming medieval palace (Galli-Tassi palace) where you can feel the history and beauty of the past. Very central location, a few steps from the Duomo, Santa Croce, Piazza della Signoria, in a privileged setting. The neighborhood is the heart of city life, with bars, restaurants and cafes.

FULL SIXTY MINUTES

We always quote our lesson lengths in hours so that you can understand exactly how much time you will get. When comparing different courses at different schools, remember to check the actual lesson length.  For example, a course offering 25 lessons could be very much shorter than a course offering 25 hours. Some schools’ lesson lengths are just 45 minutes, so 25 lessons at 45 minutes each is just under 19 real hours…

METHOD

Our approach is creative, interactive, fun and dynamic.The language must be  not only learned, but practiced. For this reason in our courses we always encourage to use the language as more as possible and to practice with role plays, conversations, simulations.
Our methodologies are focused on getting the most out of people, facilitating collaboration between the teacher and the learner – and between individual learners. We are constantly exploring new ways of making our lessons more effective and relevant to the needs of our students.

FLEXIBLE TIMING

Maximum flexibility to meet the needs of every single student. We plan our lessons around your life schedule and we are available as well during the evening time and the week end.

SOCIAL ACTIVITES

In addition to the language courses, our school offers several extra activities for our students, recreational or cultural, in order to explore the beautiful city and region where you are going  to spend a period of your life … for an Italian experience at 360 degrees!  We are here to help you in fully enjoying your experience, inside and outside the school. We listen to your wishes, your curiosities, your special requestes and we often plan activities tailored on the classes needs.
