- Anja from Germany, aged 44 (October 2016)
As a mother (Italian MUM!) of a child of 12 years I was looking for a small school, where I was sure that my child was always supervised. My expectations have been absolutely respected. Staying with local families is an educational experience for our children. My son came back home with good vocabulary and older! Great experience. Thank you, SIS.
- Parent of Alessandro from Italy, (July 2018)
We spent a wonderful time, both leaders and students were happy to the utmost, enjoyed themselves thoroughly, and it could not have been much better.
