Responsiveness, enthusiasm, authentic speakers, welcoming ambiance. These are, in my opinion, the descriptors of our school and instructors. I have spent 33 years in public education, teaching math at the high school and university levels and as an administrator in a local high school district. I can honestly say our school administration and instructors live up to the above mentioned descriptors.
The instructors are native speakers, enthusiastic in their presentation, care for their students, and accommodate the varying levels and needs of the students in their class. Every student, in my opinion, feels welcomed with their individual needs addressed.
The school’s administration listens to its students. For example, for many years, when Intermediate 2 students wanted to take a more advanced course, he or she had two options, Advanced Conversation or Advanced Literature. Many Intermediate 2 students found themselves in limbo; i.e. they wanted to advance beyond Intermediate 2 but were not capable of taking either of the advanced courses. Students stated their desire of creating a conversation course between the Intermediate 2 course and the Advanced Conversation course. The administration listened, was responsive and created an Intermediate Conversation course. It was met with great success.
I cannot recommend La Scuola di Lingua e Cultura Italiana enough for all ages, from youngsters to senior citizens.
