It is still too difficult for me to write in italien. I stayed at Lucca Italian School from 13th to 17th October for a course Cook and Speak italien. I had a wonderful time in Lucca, saw a lot of the surroundings and learnt a lot at LIS. I would recommend this course to everybody who would like to learn... More

If you are looking for a perfect experience of the Italian culture, at a reasonable rate, I would highly recommend taking the Speak and Cook Italian course at Lucca Italian School. Mornings were spent in a small group speaking/learning the Italian language with others at the same level. My teacher, Silvia made me feel at ease as I "stumbled" with... More

I've just returned from my 3rd stint at Lucca Italian School. Each time I've wondered if the experience can possibly measure up to the previous times and each time the answer is a resounding YES ! In fact, each time is better than ever. This year I again had fabulous instructors, both for class as well as for afternoon excursions.... More

My husband and I recently spent a week at LIS for the first time. It was better than we could have imagined. Every morning was spent in class, totally immersed in Italian. Even as beginners, we had taken some classes before leaving home but we're definitely still at beginner level, we were able to build on the Italian language we... More

This is my third trip to the LIS, the last two trips staying with Rosanna within the city walls. As my Italian has improved I've got to know Rosa and all of the staff as friends and feel part of a larger family. Rosanna looks after me like a mother. September/October is always a good time to visit and see... More

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

What a perfect way to spend two weeks in August - learning Italian at Lucca Italian School. Right from the start there was a lovely, caring atmosphere. i was placed in a small class each week with people of similar ability and learning needs. The teaching was of a very high standard with a constant variety of activities, speaking, listening... 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
