Torre di Babele is situated at the centre of historic Rome, in an elegant, Art Nouveau district, shaded and surrounded by parks (including the famous 'Villa Torlonia' park). Just a stone's throw away, you can find 'La Sapienza' University and the student district of 'San Lorenzo', famous for its liveliness both during the day and at night. Just as accessible from the language centre is the main train station 'Termini', your departing point if you wish to discover the marvels around Rome. The school occupies three large floors of an elegant 'Liberty' villa surrounded by a large garden (600m2). A student lounge, bright, air-conditioned classrooms, a fully-equipped computer room and Wi-Fi connection in the garden create the ideal environment for studying Italian in the heart of Rome.

Torre di Babele in Rom ist eine ausgezeichnete Schule. Ich hatte sehr motivierte Lehrer und die Schüler waren auch sehr international. Die Gastmutter war sehr nett und hat mich immer gut versorgt. Die Unterkunft war groß und sehr sauber. Leistbare Ausflüge werden angeboten. Colloseo, Vatikan usw.. muss selbst gebucht werden und wird nicht von der Schule angeboten.

« Ik heb binnen 8 weken level A2.2 behaald, waar ik erg trots op ben! »

« School zit op een fijne locatie, in de buurt van een straat met veel winkels en restaurantjes. Engels praten is ten strengste verboden, wat goed is, want zo word je gedwongen om Italiaans te praten »

« Ja. Meine Vorkenntnisse (2 Jahre an einer Volkshochschule) sind nach nahezu 30 Jahren nur noch sehr spärlich gewesen. Daran gemessen habe ich einen Grundstock erworben, auf dem ich gut aufbauen kann, zunächst zu Hause, indem ich das Gelernte anhand meiner Aufzeichnungen und mit dem Übungsheft wiederholen und dann weiter arbeiten kann. Sehr gut ist, dass der kostenfreie Zugang zu dem erworbenen Übungsheft im Internet möglich ist. Damit ist auch die Selbstkontrolle gut möglich und die Einübung ins hörende Verstehen durch audio-Zugänge. Die Teilnahme an einem weiteren Sprachkurs an derselben Schule halte ich für wahrscheinlich. »
School highlights
« Ungezwungene Atmosphäre, Verfügbarkeit und Engagement sowie hohe Kontentratiosfähigkeit des Personals, der gute Aufbau des Lehrmaterials, das erkennbare Bemühen, jedem Teilnehmer gerecht zu werden, was bei der Internationalität der Kursteilnehmer ganz bestimmt nicht leicht ist. Die Garten- und Hofanlage hinter dem Schulgebäude lässt sich sehr angenehm für die Pausenaufenthalte nutzen, das erleichtert die Kommunikation unter den Schülern. In der Umgebung gibt es eine ganze Auswahl an einfachen Restaurants für eine Mittagsmahlzeit. Die Metrostationen sind fußläufig gut zu erreichen »
Top tips
« Frühzeitiger Kauf von online-tickets für die meistbesuchten Museen (Vatikanische Museen, Villa Borghese); gutes Schuhwerk und auch an warme Kleidung denken in der Übergangszeit. Bei eigener Herbergssuche den Stadtplan genau studieren im Hinblick auf die Erreichbarkeit der Schule mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln. Es empfiehlt sich ein Wochenticket, das alle öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel in der Stadt Rom beinhaltet. »

Sehr engagiertes Leitungs- und Lehrerteam. Angenehmes Lernklima. Das Unterrichtsmaterial ist auf die Unterrichtsdynamik perfekt zugeschnitten, so dass ich den Eindruck hatte, dass sich jeder Teilnehmende mit seinem eigenen Horizont einbringen konnte.

« Die Schule und das Team vermittelten mir einen erfahrenen, kompetenten und vor allem motivierten Eindruck. Das drückte sich in der gesamten Atmosphäre der Schule aus. In keiner Phase des durchaus zielgerichteten und intensiven Unterrichtsverlaufs hatte ich das Gefühl, nicht eingebunden oder verstanden zu werden. »

Ich hätte es besser gefunden, wenn die Lehrer mehr mit uns gesprochen hätten, oder wir lesen geübt hätten. Hatte oft den Eindruck, dass der Lehrer uns ins Wort gefallen ist, wenn wir versucht haben einen Satz zusammen zu stellen. Ich verstehe jeden Lehrer, der helfen möchte, aber gerade am Anfang ist es sehr schwer überhaupt etwas zu sagen. Wir hatten oft nur in den Pausen und nach der Schule innerhalb der Klasse die Gelegenheit italienisch zu sprechen und hätten dies sehr gerne während des Unterrichts mehr geübt. Die letzten Tage hatten wir eine neue Lehrerin, welche uns vor der Klasse sprechen lies und das war sehr gut.Ich hatte seperaten Unterricht am Nachmittag, dieser war die ersten Tage nicht sehr hilfreich, da ich weder Vokabeln konnte, noch etwas verstanden habe. Die restlichen drei Wochen, habe ich gemerkt, welche Vortschritte ich durch meinen Lehrer hatte. Sergio lies mich immer reden, lesen und hat mir extra Aufgaben gegeben. Diese kann ich nur Weiterempfehlen. Durch Ihn verstehe ich nun etwas...

Torre di Babele, Rome
Duration: 8 weeks

Living in Rome for two months was a fabulous experience. It's really a great city. I really appreciated the fact that the teachers got involved so much to help me progress. Now I can manage to hold a conversation on any topic and in addition, I passed the CILS 3! Thank you for this magnificent stay!

Rome and the Torre di Babele language school are an exceptional and unique pair. Learning Italian in a friendly atmosphere, mixing with the Romans to discover the mysteries of this mythical city with friends from the four corners of the world is an amazingly enriching experience.

Torre di Babele, Rome
Duration: 2 weeks

The two weeks I spent in Rome were fantastic. We were a very friendly group (I wasn’t even the oldest). Our teacher, Francesca, taught with passion and commitment. My host family was great. It was an amazing, memorable trip and I cannot but warmly recommend the Torre di Babele School.

Host family
Staying with a host family is the ideal option for discovering the Italian culture and practising Italian daily. The families are selected with care and are situated around 30 minutes away (by public transport) from the language school building . You will stay in a single room with half board provided. This experience will also allow you to get to know the Roman way of life from the inside (customs, culinary habits...) and to get a taste of local hospitality.

Shared apartment (from 18 years)
This accommodation option allows students to share an apartment with Italian inhabitants (generally adults) or with other students from the school. You will have your own bedroom as well as free access to the common rooms and will be responsible for preparing your own meals. Prepare a typical meal from your country for your new friends and ask them to do the same for you!

To discover Rome and the Italian culture, our partner school offers the opportunity to participate in differet afternoon and weekend activities and outings (some of them are free or at a reduced price): guided tours of Rome, art history and Italian architecture itineraries, cinema, literature, visits to the prestigious parks (Villa Doria Pamphili, Parco della Caffarella, Appia Antica, etc. ) and excursions to Naples, Pompei, Orvieto, Florence and to the seaside. The Italian capital offers plenty of possibilities for going out in the evening all year round, but if you stay during the summer, the famous 'Roman Summer' (Estate Romana) turns Rome into an endless party...
