I have had a house near Lucca for many years and have learnt to communicate in Italian fairly well, but with appalling grammar. 2 weeks of classes and 3 weeks of private lessons at the school have helped loosen my Italian tongue enormously. And the afternoon sessions were a revelation. I thought I knew Lucca fairly well, but the delightful... More

I spent a month at Lucca Italian school and wished I could have stayed longer. It was very good. The immersion in the language at the school, the patience of the teachers, the ability to mix and mingle with other students and the excellent choice of afternoon activities made the experience fantastic! All the teachers and the administration at the... More

I am staying in the Lucca area for an undetermined amount of time. I decided to do a one month Italian language group course at Lucca Italian School. From the moment I inquired to the day I finished (for now) the whole experience was great. All of the teachers and staff were really friendly, relaxed and made each lesson a... More

Two weeks at LIS more than met my expectations. Having studied Italian on my own for some years I now wanted to learn how to communicate. What made this a perfect place to obtain my goal? Not the facilities. Our classroom had a whiteboard, a cd-player and a map of Italy, but but it had an excellent teacher, Silvia, who... More

Six weeks in an advanced class at Lucca Italian School in the summer of 2013 was a rewarding and productive experience, for I felt that my Italian language skills made a quantum leap in all areas and especially in listening, speaking, and increased vocabulary. Owned by three teachers, and supported by a well-trained faculty devoted to teaching, LIS offers a... More

I chose this school based on the reviews on this website, and I was not disappointed. I had never been in Italy before and my command of the language was mediocre at best, so I was a bit nervous about coming. This school provided an excellent introduction to the country. The teachers are well-trained and they are very patient with... More

My partner and I have come to Lucca for six months. It's extremely important for us to assimilate and not be ugly Americans. I visited two schools and we decided on LIS. We have not been disappointed in the least. The teachers are patient and kind, professional and caring. Also, the outside events are fun and educational. And as Amercians... More

Before you read this review, I have three little words for you...JUST DO IT! I have dreamed of living and studying in Italy for many years. After surviving cancer, I decided this was the year. I have lived here in Lucca for three months ( too short) and have attended LIS for much of that time. As a former school... More

I went to the Lucca Italian School for the purpose of learning enough Italian to travel in the country with ease and to engage in basic conversations with the people I would meet on my travels. The LIS provded so much more. The staff are friendly, patient, encouraging and excellent teachers. The activities outside the classroom offer a wonderful introduction... More

After saving for years to realise my dream of studying Italian in Italy, I investigated every single school I could find in Italy to find both the best region of Italy for us (my 17 year old niece came with me) and also the best school for us. Lucca stood out from day one. Firstly the region, Lucca is a... More
