It was a great course! The teachers were all very nice, patient and explained well. The school provides many activities and opportunities to meet new people. I really had a good time and, although only two weeks, my Italian improved. I would recommend this course to others! The apartment was good, as well as the location.
I have really enjoyed the course and have learned so much even in just two weeks. The course has given me a solid knowledge of the basic grammar and has enhanced my vocabulary. My teachers, Laura and Chiara, have been amazing and have a lot of patience! They have made the lessons fun and interesting and Chiara gave us a lot of useful information about the city.

Excellent classes. I thought the teachers were supportive and did an excellent job with the classes. And I learned a lot over the 2 weeks. Thanks. Would recommend the school to others.
The course was very interesting and useful. I learnt a lot of new things about Italy apart from language. My language improvement is very huge, even though I have been learning it only for 2 months. Teachers are very good and skilled. I liked apartments, which are in a very good condition and close to the historic center of Florence.
I liked the teachers a lot. The lessons were always interesting, informative and at the same time entertaining. The material was explained very good. I liked that we talked a lot so we could practice the speaking skills from the very first lesson. It was also very useful for learning the language that we have a combination of both: grammar & speaking. The teachers always created a very friendly and cozy atmosphere :) The apartment was perfectly located, so there were not many people, but at the same time there was a market nearby and it was fast and easy to reach school. The apartment itself was good: cozy but at the same time there was much space.
For a beginner like me, Istituto Il David is a great school for learning Italian. The teachers are very enthusiastic, and very patient and encouraging in helping us learn. The classroom activities are very helpful, and gives us confidence to slowly speak Italian. I am very grateful to the Directors for making alternative arrangements for me when I struggled to keep up with the intensive class. I am glad I chose to learn with Istituto Il David and I will definitely be back for a longer period next year. I stayed with a local family who live very close to the school. My room was nice and clean, with a private bathroom. My hosts are generous and lovely people, who made sure I ate well, and also shared their knowledge of Italian culture and history with me. I am thankful to the C. family for looking after me very well during my stay in Florence.
My impressions from the school are the best ones. I got attached with everyone here, all were kind and welcoming. My studies lasted for a month, which gave me a good result and experience. I was lucky to have teachers like Veronica, Lucia, Rita and Chiara. I love all of them and will miss a lot. Hope to be back soon. :)))
I appreciate the small class size and the teachers’ abilities to maintain a dialogue with the entire class while teaching. I especially benefitted from the many opportunities to speak in class. The administrative staff have also been very accomodating, in responding quickly to emails prior to arriving in Firenze and in answering questions after I arrived. I decided to come to Firenze first on my trip to Italy, and I believe it was a good choice. Because I want to learn the language, it was possible to speak often in Italian, but many people were able to speak English if I became overall. The accomodations arranged by the school with an Italian woman and her daughter were very nice and felt close to il centro and other interesting things.
I enjoyed my week studying. The school succeeded my expectations. The course was appropriated for my level. The teachers were well prepared and knowledgeable. Many thanks to all!!!
I very much enjoyed my time here. I feel like my Italian has improved a lot. The structure of the classes helped me improve while keeping the language interesting and fun to learn. Rita and Laura are both wonderful teachers. The apartment is in a great location, very close to everywhere I needed to go. Mrs A. is a great host, very kind and welcoming. My room was very comfortable and spacious. I never had any issue sharing the kitchen or the bathroom with the other people living there.
