I liked everything at LIS, the whole staff is very qualified, knowledgeable and wonderfully attentive to your specific needs. The afternoon activities are a pure delight. I could not have chosen a better place for my first Italian class, and will definitely be back.

I spent 2 enjoyable weeks improving my Italian language skills at LIS recently. The classes were excellent, the teachers enthusiastic, and the afternoon extra activities reinforced the more formal morning instruction. The atmosphere at the school is very positive, and I feel this leads to an effective teaching environment.

The school found me excellent hosts, close to the school, who made a point of helping me learn more Italian and of cooking local dishes for my excellent supper. The teachers were helpful and skillful, the school organised interesting excursions to neighbouring cities, to an excellent tasting of local wines and cheeses as well as carefully selected film showings, Lucca...

Students were a mix of singles (as I was) and couples in my class (all classes are small), the eight students were from Australia, USA, Germany, so Italian HAD to be the language of... More

I attended LIS three times. I have attended Italian language classes in 8 different cities. LIS is, by far, the best! Very compassionate and knowledgeable teachers. They have great after school activities. They always make learning fun. I am going back as soon as possible. Bob B Virginia USA

The teaching standard was excellent: professional and well organised. The school caters for all levels of student and adopts an inclusive approach. Everyone was very helpfully, friendly and welcoming. The Villa is well located and provides a great setting for learning Italian. Most afternoons an optional activity / excursion was offered and these were really informative and enjoyable. A wonderful... More

I spent four weeks at LIS in August 2017. It was a memorable experience and one I hope to have again. Lucca is the perfect place to learn Italian - it's safe, easy to get around, just the right size and full of beautiful buildings, piazzas and wonderful places to eat and drink. The school itself is superb: I have... More

Our second time at LIS. Love the way all the staff are so friendly, the teachers present the lessons in a very non threatening manner, the school building is very comfortable and well situated inside the city wall and the enrolment procedure is very easy. The extra options during the week are varied, something for everyone.We will be back.
