“The Italian language school BABILONIA is truly a dream. From the staff and management who are absolute angels to the wonderful, simply amazing teachers, all in a fabulous place like Taormina … what more could you ask for? I had the great fortune to spend two weeks here for teacher training course and it was the best professional development I have ever had in my career as a teacher. If you have a chance to come here, do it – everything about this place is NUMERO UNO!”
