We are a small Italian language school for foreigners based in San Giovanni Valdarno. The school is managed and run by a typical extended Italian family: Anna Paola is the director and the teacher coordinator, while Erica, her sister-in-law, is the administrative manager, as well being in charge of student accommodation.
They are assisted by Anna Paola's husband, Alessio Romagnoli, the highly popular cooking courses teacher and her parents, Nicoletta and Orazio Bosi, senior teacher and cultural guide respectively. They're supported by other "family" members, a young, friendly team of dedicated professionals whose goal is to make learning Italian learning a thoroughly enjoyable, memorable experience with motivation, enthusiasm … and a touch of irony.
