Es hieß man kann die Küche mitbenutzen. Das einzige Problem war nur, dass man sich selber Küchenutensilien hätte mitbringen müssen um dort kochen zu können. Über die ganze Küche waren Notizen verteilt, dass man die Töpfe und Pfannen nicht anfassen darf. Bitte für zukünftige Schüler drauf hinweisen

Die Sprachreise an sich hat mir sehr gut gefallen. Was die Schule und die Unterkunft angeht war ich aber nicht an allen Stellen zufrieden. An sich ja. Dennoch bietet die Schule viel zu wenig Freizeit Möglichkeiten und Optionen mit anderen in Kontakt zu kommen. In den Unterlagen steht es soll einen Welcome Aperitif und eine Stadtführung geben. Beides gibt es aber nur einmal im Monat. Wer nicht in der speziellen einen Woche kommt hat keinerlei erste Veranstaltung zum Kontakte knüpfen. Wenn man mit der Schule einen Ausflug machen möchte kostet das direkt 70 Euro. Ein Picknick im Park oder einmal die Woche organisiert mit der Schule einen Club oder eine Bar besuchen würde aber schon reichen. Der Nachmittags Intensivunterricht hat mich sehr überzeugt. Den Grammatikunterricht fand ich wenig strukturiert. Auch ist es schwierig immer auf die asiatischen Mitschüler lange warten zu müssen. Die Wohnung ist sehr schön und in gutem Zustand. Allerdings stand in meinen Unterlagen von ESL, dass alle zwei Wochen die Wohnräume (nicht Zimmer) aber Küche, Bad etc von den Eigentümern gesäubert werden. Dies war nicht der Fall. Als ich ankam hatte man meine Mitbewohnerin dazu angehalten gefälligst die Wohnung zu putzen. Die Wohnung war dann in entsprechend unsauberem Zustand. Nachdem ich den Hausmeister eine Woche später gebeten hatte zu putzen wurde die Wohnung dann einmal sauber gemacht. Danach (zwei Wochen wie zu erwarten später) dann allerdings nicht wieder. Der Hausmeister kam auch ungefragt und umangekündigt in die Wohnung ohne zu klingeln. Zwar habe ich mich nicht bedroht gefühlt, dennoch ist das für eine Junge Frau alleine in der Wohnung sehr unangenehm, wenn permanent ein fremder Mann Zugang zu der Wohnung hat. Dadurch habe ich mich stark in meiner Privatsphäre gestört gefühlt.

Testimonials

Daphne Haking
Daphne Haking
Linguadue, Milano
Duration: 11 weeks
 

Milano is a homey city with a lot of opportunities, it's the place to be! If you are looking for a more typical Italian city maybe you should choose a smaller city though like Verona for example. The school is located in the centre of Milano and had about 100 students at the time of my stay, which was perfect according to me. Since I was there only for 2,5 months I preferred a smaller school. Our teacher was called Nicoletta and we were 12 students from 10 different cultures in my lovely class. I have a great interest of culture so for me this was a lot of fun! Regarding the activities at the school they seemed cheaper if you arranged them yourself, so I did. It was not a problem, on the contrary a lot of fun, and suited me fine since I'm a very indepedent person. I made a lot of progress in Italian and I don't need anyone interpreting for me anymore. I prefer ESL to other agencies.
