Before going I was frightened to death!
However the experience exceeded my expectations giving me far more confidence in Italian. Now thinking of doing a GCSE or AS to improve my grammar.
Language course: The language lessons were “Fantastico”!
Really liked our teacher – well presented work, given in depth. Our Italian class was very popular and got a bit large. The Italian language school in Siena was very comfortable, staff and teachers were charming and accommodating – they were a great team.
The Over 50 Italian language course experience was great in all aspects! I had not anticipated meeting so many wonderful people from around the world. I hadn’t expected to laugh so much, or to be so busy!! We even went to the Cinema (in Italian of course). I had not expected to be sung to by two lovely German ladies and a Swedish lady, before I left!
Social programme: Serena our guide was off the scale – marvellously informed, funny, terrific. The balance of Italian lessons and cultural programme was about right.
Accommodation: I had at least 20 minutes of conversation with my charming landlady each morning over breakfast and at other times of the day. I was delighted with my choice of B&B. The apartment was in a great location. Very Italian. I was delighted.
Siena: I felt completely safe in Siena. There was loads to do, and I had a marvellous walk through Siena on foot one night, then sat by myself with a glass of wine in the Campo. Bliss!
CESA: You were very good and sympathetic to my requests. I would recommend you.
Conclusion: The singing students were a high point. Being reduced to tears of laughter in class. Marvellous meals out (very reasonable) with lovely company.
I’ll be going again!
