Silvio Franceschinelli, Director of us, has been teaching English in Australia, Japan, and finally in his hometown: Padova in Italy. We are a new school, where all the teachers have experience even though they are very young. It is located in a quiet town near Padova and Venice, where the people are friendly and open. Silvio likes teaching as much as organizing events for the students. He has 6 years of Italian teaching, full time. Our school is recognized by the local Chamber of Commerce. We organize courses of Italian for the University of Padova and other important schools.
Padova is an active medium-size city known for its ancient Universita' di Padova (founded in 1222), one of the more prestigious in Italy). Among the places of interest in this small jewel in the north-east of Italy: Prato della Valle (the biggest circus in Europe), the Basilica of Sant' Antonio (a cathedral well worth more than a visit), works by Donatello and Giotto, the observatory used by Galileo and last but not least, Venice is a half an hour by train. The school is at walking distance from the accommodation.
