      Mir hat die Piccola Università Italiana sehr in Tropea gefallen und deswegen haben wir die Schule in Triest gewählt. Es war eine gute Entscheidung. Ich habe mich wirklich verbessert. Im Kurs individuale 2 Std. am Nachmittag konnte ich zusätzlich meinen Wortschatz den ich für meine Arbeit benötige sehr verbessern. Das war sehr gut auf mich zugeschnitten. Tante grazie a tutte.

      I had a wonderful 5 days at Piccola Università Italiana. I arrived on a Monday with very little Italian and left on Friday able to converse with the waiter in the Hotel & the taxi driver! Silvia & Carolina were fantastic teachers & the classes were fun.

      Mein Bildungsurlaub in Tropea hat mir sehr gut gefallen. Die Lehrerinnen waren alle sehr nett und haben sich viel Mühe gegeben, uns Italienisch beizubringen. Die Lage der Schule ist super-direkt in der historischen Innenstadt und nicht weit vom Meer entfernt. Eine Pause am Meer zwischen den Kursen war eine schöne Erfahrung für mich.

      Ich kann die Piccola Università nur weiterempfehlen! Ich habe mich etwas kurzfristig angemeldet und innert 3 Tagen war alles organisiert. Die Wohnung der Schule war toll (sauber, gut gelegen, Transfer hat wunderbar funktioniert). Der Unterricht sehr lehrreich, die Lehrerinnen sympathisch und geduldig. Auch die Aktivitäten nach der Schule sind auch zu empfehlen! Vielen Dank für die tollen 2 Wochen in Trieste! :)

      La Piccola Università Italiana è piccola ma molto piacevole nel centro da Tropea. Le professoresse sono interessante e non era difficile lavorare con lei.
      Ho imparato molto il mio italiano nella settimana.
