One feature of the language school in Florence is its privileged location in the old town centre. Within just a few steps, you will be able to sightsee to your heart’s content. For example, if you turn right from the school, you come to the Renaissance church of Santo Spirito and Ponte Vecchio, which crosses the city’s Arno river. To the left of the school is the Palazzo Pitti with its famous museum, and if you go straight on, you come to the Brancacci Chapel with its frescoes and the Boboli Garden. Very close to the school, a local market entices you to linger each morning over a cup of cappuccino or just watch the lively happenings around you and pick up a few snippets of Italian from the locals. A language stay in Florence is Italianità pura!

Testimonials

“The last four weeks have been wonderful. The staff were so helpful, kind and welcomed me with a big smile every day. They challenged and encouraged me and I learned a lot of Italian. When walking to the school I passed the Ponte Vecchio,
standing in front of it, overlooking the city and the Arno just took my breath away.”

A typical day at Eurocentres Florence

With a tasty panini in his pocket, David left his temporary home this morning for his journey to school. His host mother, Rosalia, is an Italian through and through. Food is always her first priority. Since her children left home, the 57-year-old has taken in language students and spoils them with her exquisite Italian cooking skills. Her delicious meals more than compensate for the discussions about water consumption! David is not used to saving water when showering. Mamma Rosalia really took him to task about that.

In his homeland, David is studying art history. He wants to improve his Italian language skills in Florence while following the tracks of the famous artists. He walks to school every day. He normally meets up with his fellow students at the entrance before school starts to chat about this and that, or to plan the evening ahead. And after more than a week of tuition, David still looks forward to his classes. He loves the ambiance of the stately school building, the enthusiasm of the teachers and the exciting excursions. He is keeping a visit to Michelangelo’s David, the most famous sculpture in the history of art, for later – the trip to the Accademia di Belle Arti will be the crowning highlight of his language stay in Florence.
