Subject: Re: Studying Italian in Italy

as you might imagine, there are plenty of schools in Rome teaching Italian to foreigners. And I know a bunch of people who have been studying there. I know that the Leonardo Da Vinci is pretty good, while I have heard different ideas about the Dante Alighieri. A friend of mine is currently attending a course at Berlitz, and he seems pretty satisfied, but he works full time with Italians and has the chance to practice a lot... that makes the difference: many people don't learn much since they spend most of their time with other people from their country and keep on speaking their language....

I hope this helps... ciao Flavio in Rome
