Our bright secondary school students, the best who were awarded the IGCSE Cambridge programme had a great experience in Cambridge at La Dante. They worked hard and benefitted from the excellent teachers who run the courses. The activities were good fun with a trip to London and one in Ely. Warmly recommended.

Alessandro: “This experience is a big opportunity because I thing that studying in Cambridge, in England is a big opportunity to improve my skills and my language.  I really like La Dante teachers, (Michael B and Michael J…… we talked about current affairs, and my English is improving a lot. The best thing is that we always speak in English.  In Trapani you study English but here it is a different type of study, much more effective, of course”

Aurelia: “I am enjoying this experience. I have improved my pronunciation as well as my understanding. I feel more confident. The thing I like the most is that I am learning about English culture and traditions. Also the family who hosts me helps me in this because they often talk to me, so I feel more confident when I speak in English.

Martina: Professors are really good, they’re nice and gentle and we are practicing writing, speaking, listening and learning a lot of words.

Ruben: The teachers are so well prepared, my objective is improving my English skills, and I can feel more comfortable in communicating.  I also love being with my friends and at the same time learning new things. Cambridge is a very nice city, and the people, who live here, such as my house family, are lovely and hospital.

Martina II:  This is my first time in England with the school and my classmates. I think that it is something that everyone has to do because we can do so many new experiences, we can learn so many things about the language, culture and tradition in England. Cambridge is a beautiful city. The best thing of this city is the place itself. I loved the punting tour on the river Cam.

Giuseppe: I am really enjoying this experience at la Dante in Cambridge because the teachers are so good and the atmosphere is very nice. We are lucky because we can practice a lot with high-qualified teachers.  The things I like the most are the lessons themselves because they are perfect.

Alberto:  La Dante is a happy place, and Cambridge is a really nice city. I am so enjoying this experience. It is very effective because you are in a city where people do not talk your language and so you have to push yourself. I am always with English people. The things I like the most is being with my friends and seeing Cambridge, its parks, cinemas, and colleges. Living with British family is so cool. I am enjoying this because you only talk English with them.

Serena: …On a typical day, in the morning we go on trips, we visit the city with a guide or the teachers, and on the afternoon we have the lessons on Geography, Maths and English teacher.

I really like La Dante teachers, they are very kind and they make us feel at home.
