" ...a fantastic instructor; very smart and intuitive; using different approaches to teaching, which is very helpful when learning a second language... it was important to her that we had a positive experience."R. Nino - Siena 2012
" Cooking instructor was a delight and knowledgeable and our primary language instructor did a very good job of translating, including having to edit on the go! I liked the (hotel) location as it was easy to access everything in Siena, but it was also quiet, out of the mainstream. Booking was easy; I would like to build on this program...."L.
