My teacher Valentina was excellent. I had one on one instruction which was perfect for me. The school location was convenient and the after school activities added to the leaning experience.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
During my stay in Florence, I went to the Scuola Toscana for 2 weeks. I was new to the Italian language so I took the A course. The teachers made it simple for us to learn the basics. Everyday we repeated former lectures, while learning new words and grammar. I would say I learned a lot during my 2 week stay.
The school is located close to the centre of Florence, so it was easy to reach and to find places to eat.
Sometimes the course was a bit too repetitive and too focused on the books, but overall I liked my course.
I more or less liked everything. Especially my speaking class with Maria.She's the sweetest person ever. As well as Alberto!
Classes were great. Location was perfect,both the school's and my apartment's.Would totally return!
what I likes about the trip is that the school has an excellent staff , the teachers are kind and friendly , I learned a lot from to be honest at the beginning it was very hard for me to understand Italiano but then i got improved by changing my class. the location simply is perfect no doubt all the important destinations and nice sandwich shops I can easily find there, about the facilities yeah it's pretty basic , the school has great activities inside and out of the school the trips where very nice I enjoyed it a lot, the housing was fantastic I met a beautiful husband and wife they where very kind and generous very with me they treated me as if I was there son. there is nothing I did not like overall the experience was Fantastic I would love to repeat it again but with a different language.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
The location couldn’t be better!
My first teacher (Laura) was excellent, even though I thought I could go on a higher level and try a different class, I didn’t want to change teachers because of her, then I stayed. Unfortunately, in my last week there, she went on vacation, so they had someone replacing her.
I only took conversation classes and many times I felt like we were moving too slow, because of our different mother tongues it was hard to conciliate the speed of the lessons, maybe the school should consider splitting students based on that, because with Portuguese/Spanish speakers the learning could go way faster considering the similarities. Even if at the beginning we’re all in the same level. I think that’s my main disappointment.
The activities provided to the school are also a plus, they have all sorts of options, from wine tasting to touring medieval cities.
And my last complaint is about the housing. I don’t think they are good enough considering their prices. On many of them the owner lives with the students (this should have been said before), the apartments are VERY old, and I did’t liked them at all. ( yes, “them” because I tried 3 different ones).
I attended for two weeks Italian and art history courses, 4 hours daily. The school has an ideal location at the corner of Piazza Santa Croce. It is an old palazzo and from the windows of the classroom I could admire the famous cupola of Florence Cathedral at close proximity.
My teachers were qualified and they created a relaxed atmosphere for learning. To study Italian and the art history in "the cradle of the Renaissance" was inspiring. We made visits to interesting cultural sights with Caterina, a great expert of art history and the city of Florence.
I enjoyed participating also in some afternoon activities that Scuola Toscana offered in order to explore more Florence and to
socialize with other students from all over the world - of course in Italian.
I stayed at a family home which was organized for me by the school. The host family was nice, and the common dinner in the evening gave me an opportunity to speak more Italian and learn something about the every day life in Italy. From my Florentine home I had a fifteen minute walk to the school.
So, I had a great experience as an Italian student and I will recommend Scuola Toscana to all Italian enthusiasts.
The time management was very good, we really liked grammar and conversation in separated groups.
The teachers are very very good. We were impressed of how much knowledge in arts and literature they have. I've learned more in one week in Scuola Toscana than the whole year before that.That was really amazing.
The part that I enjoyed the most was the time dedicated to discuss and learn (in italian) about the masterpieces in Florence that we would see in the afternoon in the museums.
We took a really nice guided tour with the scholl staff and learned a lot while practising the language.
All the staff was very nice and kind.
I liked very much to know students from different parts of the globe and the teachers were able to bring on topics so we could understand, know an appreciate different cultures.
It was an amazing experience and I intend to come back to stay longer in the future.
My teacher Laura was very good and helped me a lot to improve my italian. Katerina is also great person and teacher and the trip that we had in Siena with her was great. The lady in kitchen seminars was also honorable. My day trip in Chianti was enjoyable.
According to my apartment, I was very pleased.
The only think that I did not like, is that the school administration was impersonal and the activities were not something special or interesting.
The school was very engaging to help the students and the staff members were very friendly.
The student groups were also not too big and we had a good atmosphere within the lessons.
All teachers were very friendly and well prepared and easy to understand.
The activities offered by the school were transparently communicated and informative and cost free.
The location was super and I had no trouble getting there on foot.
The facilities looked old and a bit shabby but it was OK for me.
The housing: the room was nice and big - the landlady was absolutely super and friendly
The only (small) problem was, it was not possible to lock my sleeping room.
All in all it was a wonderful stay and a very good experience for me. I will be back next year.
Friendly, uncomplicated atmosphere in Scuola Toscana, young dedicated teachers, central location, beautiful old building, interesting program beyond the group classes which allows us to get to know each other beyond the courses.
I especially enjoyed art and history course!
I didn't find anything that I didn't like. Small groups, very good teachers who motivated us and helped us a lot, very good program and strategy, my room was excellent, clean and beautiful. Everything was excellent. Great experience!!! I will go back and stay longer for sure!!!Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
I had three different teachers and all were top-notch. Various activities, such as museum visits and excursions, were available to all students and well-worth attending. The school administration is very efficient and helpful. I would recommend the school to anyone who wishes to improve his Italian, both in terms of grammar and culture. The art history classes are exceptional! I am myself an experienced foreign-language teacher so I am fairly demanding. In addition, I have attended several other schools in Florence in the past and, having chosen Scuola Toscana this time, I was fully satisfied.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
I liked everything about Scuola Toscana and would definitely do this experience again. The only suggestion I would make is to have smaller classes; there were too many students to have as much conversation as I would have liked. I loved the varied afternoon activities and would sign up for more next time.
A couple downsides were that the classrooms were small and felt a bit crowded, and the Wi-Fi didn't work in many parts of the building.
The school and the teachers were amazing, and probably the best noes I've ever had. It was a really nice time. I would never forget this time and above all, the people who I met. The program was really good for me too, so I wouldn’t change anything. :)Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
At first I was a bit nervous as I did not know any Italian at all, but the warm staff and understanding teachers made me feel at home quickly. I think the accommodation was a bit old and had no air conditioning, so it was quite hot in the summer.
Overall though, it was a great experience and I would recommend it highly.
It is already worth it to visit Scuola Toscana because of its perfect location in the beautiful city, but I´d also like to emphasize that the classes and most of teachers are amazing there. Most of them have rich experiences and knowledge to teach Italian and are very attractive characters. It is especially very interesting that some teachers have their specific activities and that they are very flexible with a lot of topics. I am therefore quite sure that every student will find "his/her" teacher during their staying, which is not so easy in any other place, I personally think. In addition to this, the activities they offer are very interesting, though it might be a little bit difficult for Italian beginners to understand everything that the teachers explain. The real experiences through the communication and the foot working will be a huge help.
I'm going to back in the coming weeks, and am looking very forward to seeing the teachers again.
I took a week of art, history and language in July 2011. I had private art lessons because there were no other students at that time, and I had daily excursions to the most important museums of Florence with my teacher Caterina. It was very enjoyable and instructional. Speaking with her greatly improved my Italian, too. In the afternoon, I took a conversation course which was also great fun and instructional. I think also a daily grammar course is optional but, as I was on vacation, I was happy with 4 hours a day, starting at 11 am. The school is relaxed and welcoming, and the teachers and directors are enthusiastic and kind. Great value for the money!
The school arranged for me to stay in a bedroom with a shared bathroom (but no one to share it with!) near the Piazza S. Spirito. The landlord was kind and the apartment was very well situated at 15 minutes walk from the school, near a big supermarket (not so usual in the center of Florence) and near the Ponte Vecchio.
The school organizes walks and tours in the evenings 2 or 3 times a week and an outing on Saturday - I went to Lucca. The outing was fun and also very educational, I am amazed at the level of cultural knowledge of all the teachers at the school.
What can I say? I have nothing negative to say about the school. As I am a ‘mature student' (51 at the time), I was a bit lonely in Florence. My son's girlfriend took a course in 2013 and had lots of social activities with her classmates. She stayed at the same apartment and was also happy there.
Studying in Italy and especially in Tuscany Italy is a dream for any passionate language learner. I super recommend the course on History of Art, where we learned the Italian language and about the wonders of Florence, with great teachers who specialized in art.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
Devo scrivere in Italiano o Inglese? Inglese mi va bene. I've been to the school 4 times now and I can't say enough good things about it. All the instructors are all so knowledgeable, kind, polite and extremely fun to be around. They really make learning interesting and exciting. They have after school events everyday, which are always fun, and they range from walking around Florence getting a fascinating history lesson to going wine tasting or doing a cooking class.
The after school events really help with your comprehension of Italian and it's always fun to be out roaming the streets of Florence or exploring the countryside around Tuscany. Everywhere you go is very enchanting and it's an experience you will remember for the rest of your life.
My ability to speak and understand Italian has skyrocketed each time I have been to the school. It really helps to be there for at least a couple of weeks and get immersed in the language and daily life....and of course the food is beyond extraordinary....and the wine as well. It's a well known fact in Italy that the more wine you drink the better you speak the language. It works for me.
The school is also very accommodating, meaning you can pretty much structure your own lessons once you understand what you need to work on. Sometimes you may want lessons with a group, or you can do private lessons. You can choose to do conversation classes, or grammar classes, or whatever you feel you need to work on more. The school is absolutely accommodating to however you wish to study. Plus you always have the option after you finish school to continue on with classes on Skype. I've been doing weekly Skype classes, which are very affordable, so I don't forget everything that I've learned.
I don't have anything negative to say about the school at all. It has always been an educational and extraordinary experience for me.
Hello, my name is Dawn Dubriel. I'm a filmmaker from Fort Lauderdale, FL. I went with Florida Atlantic University to Florence, twice, for their study abroad program. During my graduate degree, I felt a calling to return to Florence and make a film and iBook about The Medici family's assistance of the Renaissance. This time, I wanted to go on my own and stay for three months to do my work.
I contacted Scuola Toscana and signed up for the Italian grammar classes at 9am. Before I even arrived in Florence, Scuola Toscana found me an affordable and perfect place to stay. Their professor, Sarah, spoke English very well, which helped me learn Italian faster. I literally cherish those mornings in her class, with students from all over the world, who I still keep in touch with. Downstairs from Scuola Toscana is Oibo, where students of Scuola Toscana get a discount on food. For breakfast every day, I would have a delicious brioche (rated the best in Florence), un cafe, and freshly squeezed orange juice for 3 euro and 50 cents. The same meal anywhere else in Florence would have cost 9 euro, and would not even been as good. Their barista, Sacha, is one of my favorite people in Florence. We also get lunch for 6 euro... delicious!
Every afternoon (around 4pm), Scuola Toscana has activities such as walking tours, boat tours, visiting Palazzao Vecchio or Palazzo Medici Riccardi. Their professors are true historians and were nice enough to be interviewed in my documentary film. So, a typical day for me in Florence was: delicious breakfast at Oibo; grammar, laughter, and Italian practice from 9am -11am; walking around Florence, visiting museums and making new friends plus practicing my Italian; lunch at Oibo; Scuola Toscana afternoon activities; Apertivo, maybe again at Oibo (because they are the best in everything!); going for a walk and seeing the sunset at Piazzale Michelangelo or San Miniato al Monte. I would also go to sleep pretty early and wake up at 5am to film Florence before the city wakes up. This is when you see a different side of Florence.
In 2013, I won the international contest for Lavazza's the Italian Experience, and actually won a free trip to Italy. Of course I attended Scuola Toscana and they got me an even cuter studio loft for the week. Did I mention that I became an intermediate speaker? Also, I did not forget my Italian once I returned, and was placed in Intermediate Italian with one of the best Italian professors, teachers, historians, and poets: Lorenzo. It was so good to see everyone again, especially because they added to my film with expert historian interviews, and taught me Italian - the most beautiful language in the world.
So, these are my secrets to you, on how to maximize your time in Florence: Connect with Scuola Toscana and enroll in their language course, let them help you find a place to stay, eat at Oibo with the student discount, attend the afternoon activities - oh and the ladies at the front desk can also help you make appointments for important museums like L'Accademia (to see the real David), and the Uffizi (to see Botticelli’s art), so you don’t have to waste hours waiting in line.
The classes were excellent and very dynamic.
Before, I wondered how much I would be able to learn in the short time I booked, but in my first week I realized that it really would work.
The teachers were also excellent. All of them had different characteristics, and were very good.
There was wide variety in the activities. I really enjoyed. I only regret not touring to "Val Dorce", because I couldn't afford it. It seemed a little expensive.
Everything was also great at the house. They were a lovely couple. The only thing I would change (but isn't really a big deal) is that sometimes the bathroom for students downstairs was occupied even when the other one for the owners was available upstairs.
In Scuola Toscana everything was just perfect. Teachers were great, they knew how to teach, they were so friendly and patient. The location was great! Only thing that wasn't so perfect was the housing...but we got used to that. :) And the location of the housing was great, so peaceful and good neighborhood. The school organized nice activities. We liked especially Lorenzo's tour in San Gimignano! It was a great day!Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
