I had a great experience with this school, the teachers are great and very nice people. They have courses for all levels and they are easy to follow and useful. I did only 2 weeks of classes and it felt very helpful to learn Italian. You can also meet people from all over the world during the course. Cannot recommend enough. Plus it's a great plan to learn Italian in the mornings and go to the beach in the afternoons 😉

Großartige Sprachschule! Ich habe vier Wochen lang die Tiberius Sprachschule besucht und richtig tolle Sprachferien in Rimini verbracht. Rimini ist nicht nur eine Stadt in der viel los ist, sondern die auch kulturell viel bietet. Der Unterricht war sehr interessant und abwechslungsreich gestaltet. In der Kleingruppe hatten wir viel Spaß und haben viel gelernt. Die Schulleiterin Monica und die Lehrer sind alle sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Ich kann die Schule nur weiterempfehlen und werde auf jeden Fall wiederkommen.

Leider konnte ich nur 1 Woche in Rimini verbringen, ich hatte aber das große Glück, an der Schule mit Serena viel zu lernen. Serena ist eine wunderbare Lehrerin, mit Geduld und Freude habe ich dort eine Menge gelernt! Ich freue mich jetzt schon darauf, wiederzukommen.

Ich habe eine Woche bei der Tiberius School verbracht und einen Kurs 50+ gemacht. Es war einfach nur phantastisch. Ich habe noch nie in meinem Leben so viel italienisch gesprochen, natürlich mit Fehlern, die immer mit großer Toleranz verbessert wurden.Monica und Andrea haben mir mit großer Leidenschaft Rimini und andere Sehenswürdigkeiten gezeigt und sie haben mit hoher Kompetenz und Geduld mein Italienisch nach vorne gebracht.Natürlich komme ich wieder und freue mich jetzt schon auf diesen Aufenthalt.

Sono molto contento che ho studiato per due mesi al Tiberius. Questa è una scuola straordinaria. La direttrice della scuola Monica e tutti gli insegnanti sono amichevoli e vogliono di aiutare. Studiare non è noioso, con giochi, comunicazione attiva, guardare i film. La scuola ha un'atmosfera molto piacevole, come a casa.
