Choosing Italian language class in Venice

Jump to last reply

I will be trying to raise my Italian language level by taking a week-long class in Venice next May. There don't seem to be a lot of choices at first glance and I think it may be a choice between Instituto Venezia, which I have read about here (sorry I've forgotten who wrote a TR about their experience there) and Venice Italian School.

As far as I can see online, the principal difference is the size of the class: max of 12 at Instituto Venezia and a max of 6 at the Venice Italian School. I'd prefer a smaller class, but on the other hand the Instituto Venezia is more conveniently located, i.e. I could practically roll out of my apartment and into the classroom.

I'd welcome any information anyone might have to help me make up my mind as well as any other schools I may not have come across. In terms of level of class I'd call myself high Intermediate, but who knows. I do want to be challenged and I'd like to be in a class with people who have at least 18-24 months of Italian lessons behind them. Anyone with experience at Venice language schools?
