Whether it is language, art, history, music, or any other course, students are taught inside of the classroom and are encouraged to accelerate their progress by participating in AEF’s endless activities outside of the classroom.
A cornerstone to our educational philosophy is experiential learning and enabling our students to fully immerse in the Florentine and European culture.
