Friends, Emma (22) and Adam (22) spent 5 weeks on a Standard course in Viareggio from July to September with CESA, hear what they both thought of their time in Viareggio:
> Viareggio College Description
“I expected to learn quite a bit of Italian whilst having a really good time! I expected it to be quite hard work but enjoyable and satisfying. I expected the quality of teaching to be high and for the teachers to be friendly and helpful. I thought that there would be a lot of social events and things to do. My expectations were definitely met. I feel that my Italian improved a great deal, I started at beginner level and I progressed very quickly. The teachers were friendly and helpful as I expected and there was plenty to do outside of lessons. Read More
Three week Standard programme. Julia, in her early 20′s, had low intermediate Italian, and knew exactly what she wanted… to combine some serious beaching with a fun Italian language programme!
“I needed to refresh my Italian, but didn’t want to hit a city like Florence or Rome over the summer, the temperatures would have been killing, so decided on the beach resort of Viareggio – now I could tan as well as study! The only hassle is, if it’s a busy beach day, you have to walk a while down the beach to get a ‘bano’. A ‘bano’ is an area you rent umbrellas from … which you always do! The small percentage of free beach area is almost always full and rocky. Included in the rental are the area’s facilities, which is really civilized. There’s areas off the sand for eating, you can get little storage rooms for changing and locking up your items, access to a shower room, and BATHROOMS! I never was one for roughing it!! Read More
