Centro Machiavelli – Students Reviews

I cannot tell you how amazing this school is. If you want to learn italian in a short time, this is where you need to go. I wanted to improve my italian, since I start university this year and one of my subjects is italian and I still cannot believe how much I've learned in this past few weeks. The teachers as well as the whole atmosphere were just amazing. I had the pleasure to work with Elleny and she seriously is the nicest and most dedicated teacher I know. She always made sure that every single one of us could follow her, even if she had to explain things three, four or even ten times. You could see that she really loves what she does and that for me is what makes a good teacher.
