Where do I go upon arrival?
Arrivals are on Sundays previous course begin. You will have to advise the school at least 1 week before about your exact arrival time in Rome in order to arrange the meeting with the landlady/-lord. You should go directly to your accommodation address upon arrival. Do not come to school during the weekend as you will find it closed.
What happens on the first day of school?
At 8.30 we await you for the placement test. After the testing, there will be a break. After the break, you will be told to which level you have been assigned and what time your group meets (either mornings or afternoons). That first day, two lessons will be held, either immediately following class assignments (if you are in a morning group) or after lunch (if you are in an afternoon group). In summer, this schedule may change slightly.
From the second day on, intensive classes will meet as follows:
Morning: 9:00 to 11:15 and 11:45 to 12:30
Afternoon: 14:00 to 16:15 and 16:45 to 17:30
How do I get to know my level?
You will have to take a written and oral placement test in order to verify your level.
I will attend a special course. What will be my timetable?
Those registered in a Super-Intensive-Course or in the Intensive-Plus-Course will have additional lessons immediately before or after the regular course.
I will attend an Espresso course. What will be my timetable?
Whenever you’ve booked with us an Intensive „Espresso” course, this course has a duration of 3 lessons daily.
Classes are from 9.00 to 11.15 or from 14.00 to 16.15.
Participants in the Intensive “Espresso” course and participants in the Intensive Standard course will be together in the same class until the break.
Participants in the Intensive Standard course will continue after the break for another lesson of 45 minutes daily.
It is, at any time, possible to change your “Espresso”course into a 4 hour per day Intensive Standard course.
