The accommodation for those on the junior language program is in host families in Florence. The students are housed there in double or triple rooms with juniors of the same age and sex. The host families are carefully selected by the school and are regularly visited and checked.
In the host family the Italian language course students receive breakfast and dinner. Lunch is organised during the week by the school. Bed linen and towels are provided by the host family and the laundry can be done once a week.
Having meals together with the host family gives you a great opportunity to use your everyday Italian. At the same time, the young people are in the company of a typical Italian family living in Italy. So, as well as improving their knowledge of Italian they get to know more about Italian culture.
