Je n'ai pas eu d'évaluation orale après mon test écrit. L'enseignant était un peu fumiste.Salerno est une ville magnifique, l'école est située près de la mer et c'est très agréable. Les petites rues de la vieille ville sont sales, cela gâche la visite. Un excellent accueil et une belle visite culturelle de la ville à l'arrivée. Les activités de loisir sont d'intérêt variable. Les salles de classe sont exiguës, auraient besoin d'être rafraîchies. Elles sont très chaudes car la climatisation est faible et les élèves sont nombreux et serrés autour de la table.

Testimonials

Caspar Bischof
Caspar Bischof

I liked Salerno and its culture, it is a quiet and safe city, I like the typical life and the historical centre and I think it is a valid alternative in the south of Italy; I appreciate the organization, the kindness and the helpfulness of the staff in the   school, the good and patient teachers and the accommodation in the family who was very kind. I had an excellent experience, and unfortunately the time available is too short to completely experience the life here in Salerno. This is a good school. Thank you.

Accademia Italiana, Salerno
Duration: 6 weeks

My stay was perfectly organised. Someone went to pick me up at the airport and my family was great (thank you!). I strongly recommend this school. The teachers are helpful and very competent! The school organises lots of activities outside of class. All in all, I spent 6 wonderful weeks in Salerno. I will definitely go back there!
