If you’re debating whether this week of language immersion will spur your Italian on, then I can assure you it did it for me. Sira is vivacious and engaging and a born teacher. She has the experience to spot gaps in my vocabulary, sentence structure etc and by the next morning she had created some relevant input which was just right. This happened every day so I can honestly say that I had improved by the end of the week. Also Sira was able to adapt the trips and excursions to suit which I really appreciated. Plus it was fun meeting some of her friends and chatting with them and Sarzana is an interesting place with a long history. So glad I made this trip.
