Un GRANDE GRAZIE to all students who came to our 3 days "Intensivo d'Italiano Dante"!
We all had such a nice time together: great team of teachers and helpers, activities, friendship & food - A true full immersion into the Italian language and culture. We felt very supported by the students' feedback and no doubt we will make this a regular - perhaps every two years event!
St. Albans Community Centre
We have been at our new venue for a couple of weeks now and we are very satisfied, happy and thankful to be in such nice and vibrant new premises, comfortable and warm.
