The four week course is outstanding, particularly the practice teaching experience with students of varied levels. Florence is a great city of art as well as entertainment. The school is convenient to public transport and provides excellent assistance in lodging. From school, the center of the city is an easy twenty minute walk along the Arno, or a ten minute bus ride. There is a superb neighborhood bar/restaurant right next door to the school-great for lunch and coffee breaks. If you are an EU resident, you will probably find a teaching position easily after the course. If you are not an EU resident, you will have more difficulty due to the need for a work permit. For me, an American, the training, the month of living in Florence and the friendships I made were well worth the expense-though I did not seek a teaching position in Italy.
