Mein Sprachaufenthalt in Florenz, Italien war eine sehr schöne Erfahrung für mich. Das Personal der Schule Linguaviva war sehr freundlich und der Unterricht angenehm gestaltet. Italien überzeugt durch seine Gastfreundschaft, das gute Essen und den kulturellen Reichtum Der Standort der Schule ist sehr zentral. Die Infrastruktur war ebenfalls gut, teilweise waren die Klassenzimmer etwas klein. Der Unterrichtsstil und die Stimmung im Klassenzimmer war immer sehr angenehm. Die Lehrperson hatte einen guten Umgang mit allen Studierenden Die Wohnung insgesamt war schön und die Entfernung zur Schule perfekt. Mein Zimmer war recht gross, die Möbel teilweise sehr alt und auch nicht mehr ganz funktionstüchtig (Schrank liess sich beispielsweise nicht ganz schliessen). Im Sommer würde eine Klimaanlage den Aufenthalt deutlich angenehmer machen. Die Zusammensetzung der Wohngemeinschaft wechselte schnell, wodurch der Kontakt zu den Mitbewohnern und Mitbewohnerinnen etwas erschwert wurde. Das Freizeitangebot der Schule war sehr abwechslungsreich. Die Ausflüge waren gut organisiert und von einem netten Team begleitet.

Do you think you've made progress?
« Ja, auf jeden Fall. Ich konnte vor allem meine sprachlichen Kompetenzen in der Konversation deutlich verbessern, da wir auch im Unterricht viel sprechen konnten. Auch sonst war der Aufenthalt eine wertvolle Erfahrung für mich, da ich dadurch selbständiger geworden bin. Dies vor allem weil ich in einer Wohngemeinschaft gewohnt habe und somit öfters auf mich alleine gestellt war. »

« Das Personal war sehr aufgeschlossen und hilfsbereit. Man konnte mit jedem Anliegen auf das Sekretariat gehen und Hilfe beanspruchen. »

Es werden Ausflüge angeboten, die erst ab 15 Personen durchgeführt werden, obwohl es klar ist, dass diese Anzahl nicht erreicht werden kann. In der 2. Monatshälfte haben die meisten schon die Ausflüge gemacht.

Host family
This is the ideal option for those who want to experience the Italian way of life and improve their Italian in a friendly atmosphere. Host families offer accommodation about 15 minutes by bus from the school. Whether you stay in a large family or with just one person, you will have your own single room (double if you are travelling with another student) and can choose between half-board and breakfast only.

Shared apartments
Our partner school in Florence also offers accommodation in apartments, shared with other students, about 15 minutes' walk from the school. You can either have your own room or share if you are travelling with a friend. The apartments each have three or more bedrooms and are fully equipped with a kitchen where you can prepare your own meals and a bathroom (towels and sheets are provided) which are shared. This accommodation option is ideal for meeting international students and sharing the unique experience of learning Italian in the heart of Florence. On request, our partner school also offers accommodation in private apartments (1 or 2 people).

The European capital of art, Florence is a city whose rich past invites you to explore its cobbled streets. The city is a museum in itself, an incarnation of the Renaissance offering you an unforgettable display from its unique museums to its magnificent architecture and Tuscan landscapes. You will be face to face with history: the Piazza della Signoria dotted with towers, the Duomo and the works of art in the Uffizi Gallery are all located on the same bank of the Arno River. Add to this Florence's wine making and gastronomy – Tuscan wines, freshly made pasta and sauces with exquisite flavour. Welcome to Tuscany!
