All of our students have been very satisfied with ILS, particularly with our linguistic program and the flexibility of the courses.

The flexibility in the choice of the departure dates, the number of weekly lessons, places to stay
and the linguistic program makes the school ideal for:
1. those who can only stay abroad for short periods (1 week),
2. those who want to adapt the course to their own professional requirements

All of these factors combine to make the student fell comfortable from the first day.
The courses are taught at all levels by native Italian speakers, university graduates who are specially qualified to teach Italian language and culture.
