You can choose both English and Italian courses. It is easier to speak English than Italian among exchange students which is a pitty. I personally spoke a lot Italian but it was thanks to accomodation I had in an Italian family.

I think my language skills improved a lot. Locals were friendly to foreigners and this helped to practice the language. Teachers spoke mainly the local language so foreigners had to do the effor to comunicate.

My language abilities improved greatly during the year; this was mostly due to the fact that I lived with italians who helped me greatly. The university also offered a very good language instruction course.

Living in Italy is definitely THE best way to improve your Italian skills. It can be challenging at first wit the wide variety of dialects etc, but given time the language isn't too difficult to master.

Considering that I have already learned Italian for 3 years before going to Italy, I had no difficulties at all. Some of the courses I chose were in Italian, but I didn't have the chance to stress that in at the questions asked earlier.
