What people say about our Italian classes

I studied for a one week “full immersion” course in Italian for my A level in October. The professionalism and attention to detail in relation to both course content and course administration was absolutely second to none. I was really impressed by the quality of the school’s total offering. I can thoroughly recommend La Dante for any Italian student, at any level. A first class learning experience

Martin Carter

‘Thank you La Dante! I didn’t know a single word of Italian on day 1 but now, after my lessons,  I have a strong understanding of the basics. My Italian teacher was very patient and her lessons were well structured so we made excellent progress in each session. Her activities were engaging and she made me feel very comfortable learning something that was taking me out of my comfort zone. Not only have a learnt a lot, I feel I have made a friend. I am really looking forward to coming back for more lessons and becoming part of the La Dante family’

Ruth Blom
Our teacher Tamara is excellent. She has made the whole experience very comfortable and productive and has ensured that everyone is confident with learning that way.

“I think that you all deserve high praise for your skill, kindness and cordiality and the way you make your client students feel supported and encouraged. Many thanks for this!”

‘I was so impressed by the level the students had reached given that they had been studying for such a short space of time. This is obviously due to the high standard of teaching that you provide.’

Alison Hales
My son Daniel and his friend Benjamin were the only two in their class this Term, and that was really a bonus for them as Federica is a wonderfully engaged teacher who has picks up really well on what the boys in her class are and aren’t understanding. So two main things: a fantastic teacher (thank you, Federica!) and the class size.

Ludovica is a very good teacher & is guiding me well although I have a way to go for the Plida certificate.

Dear Erika, I just wanted to say thank you  for the great Italian lesson with Carolina.

Rachel D.

I just wanted to say that I have enjoyed this weeks lessons with Mathilde and Erika.
We covered many interesting subjects and I think it has helped with my conversation and listening comprehension.
After Monday was sorted I really felt I made actual progress – Mathilde has sent me links to various items on La Dante website to listen to during August to ‘keep my ear in’!
Many thanks

Last term I had 10 private lessons with Emilia and I wanted to let you know that I was very pleased with the quality of her teaching and the lesson content. We covered a lot of ground during the lessons, in terms of grammar and practice for the B1 oral exam. It was exactly what I was hoping for. Best regards,  Catherine

Dear Gilda,  Thanks so much for organising the course with Emilia. She was wonderful, really professional with a great sense of humour so the lessons were also fun. Her training on exam technique was excellent and flexibility to fit to my hours much appreciated. Thanks again, Clare M.

Kindest regards, A. C.

Grazie!

Despite my current reservations, the course to date has been very good. We also had a superb teacher in Tamara Benassi.
