Chiusi

Chiusi è la città che esprime al meglio la civiltà etrusca. Un esempio di questa antica popolazione è il “labirinto” di Porsenna (il più famoso lucumone etrusco), che secondo la leggenda doveva custodire un prezioso tesoro, ma che in realtà è un ingegnoso sistema di approvvigionamento idrico. Un altro esempio di questa straordinaria civiltà del passato è la città sotterranea, che con una serie di gallerie rappresenta l’unica esposizione in Italia interamente dedicata all’epigrafia funeraria etrusca, attraverso reperti di notevole pregio, come le urne cinerarie e le tegole con iscrizioni in etrusco e latino.

I should explain that my main motive for going to language school is to structure my vacation in a pleasant way, make friends, be in a pleasant location in Italy. I also hope to improve my Italian of course, and slowly I am doing so, but I don't have an urgency about it.
I would rate everything at the school itself as being Excellent.
I am VERY HAPPY with Monica, my teacher. She did a good job of running the class, was very pleasant, and VERY patient. I have been to some schools like this before, and in those schools there seemed to be an unspoken understanding that the students didn't have to work too hard, and the teachers didn't have to work too hard either. Not so here! Monica really seems to care, and it certainly caused me to try harder also. I spent a lot of time on homework, and was happy to do so. I wish had been able to learn more quickly; at my age, 75, I find that it is difficult to learn a language.
As a single traveler an important thing for me is to find other students at a school who are interested in meeting outside of class to do other things like dining, exploring. I am very satisfied with the school in this respect. I have met several wonderful people over the last two weeks and have had many good times.
I also participated in some of the programs that the school organized, and overall they were very good. I especially enjoyed cooking with Lalla and the trips to Lucignano and Poppi. I also independently went to San Supulcro with my new Australian friends and enjoyed it very much.
I liked the city of Arezzo. It is big enough to be interesting but not completely flooded by tourists. There are many excellent and reasonably priced dining choices and there always seemed to be plenty to see and do.
Overall I have had an excellent experience at the school and would recommended it to anyone. I think it is the best of the 4 or 5 schools that I have gone to. In fact, if I come to Italy again next year I will choose to come here again
