Moira N., UK,
I spent a lovely week at L'Acanto. School was well structured and tailored to the needs of each student so everyone benefited. My objective was to prove to myself that I could bridge the gap between studying Italian and actually being brave enough to risk speaking it! - and this proved the perfect way to do this ie., in a small school, away from the big centres. I stayed in a private apartment and opted to join the family for lunch every day. The family was very kind and patient with beginners like me so we managed to communicate very well which felt like a real achievement. My Italian tutor back in the UK was very impressed by my increased confidence in speaking the language and this has continued, so I can highly recommend L'Acanto! In fact, I am already planning to be back next year!
