We really enjoyed our experience at LIS. The teacher (Silvia) was fantastic - very patient, a good rhythm of speaking and very clear and showed a lot of creativity in her class structure and planning. She was talented at matching the class abilities with the exercises. It was a fun learning environment with many social extra curricular activities and Lucca... More

What a fantastic way to learn Italian! I spent two weeks staying in the centre of the old town of Lucca (with a WONDERFUL family, organised through the school as a home stay), and did a two week long language course. The teachers were enthusiastic, personable, welcoming and so keen to teach, and the organisation and administration was flawless. (I... More

It was my first experience with the Lucca Italian School and I was in the beginners' group. I had done a bit of Italian before although it didn't amount to much; I had never really put it to use and much was forgotten. My motives for learning the language were prompted by the recent purchase of an apartment just outside... More

There is a can do spirit which encourages learning in... More

It is my second time at LIS. First of all, there is no more beautiful city in Europe than Lucca. The scale of the city is perfect for a language school. LIS is just outside the city walls, a nice morning walk from the center of the city. The teachers of the school are great as is the administration. There... More

There were tons of opportunities to immerse ourselves in the language and in the Lucchese culture. After morning language classes, there were afternoon and evening activities such as cooking classes and visits to local wineries which allowed us to... More
