Dear Daniela, Angelo Lieven Dehandschutter, Mayor of Sint-Niklaas Once again I wish to thank the school (Lucca Italian School) for the efforts made, to make this “week of the twin cities” to such a great success! I have learned so much, enjoyed the activities in the afternoon. Thank you for that wonderful “farewell” diner. However, for me it is not a “farewell”. Very sure, I will come back. Sorry for writing in English, but as I want that our Mayor knows what a great service you all gave to us, I had to write it in English. Grazie mille Daniela, Angelo, Laurenza e anche a tutti gli altri! Cordiali saluti, Chantalle (Lootens)

I wholeheartedly agree with and second everything that Sue Reynolds wrote in the earlier post. The course - Speak and Cook Italian - was a joy from start to finish. Eva, who taught the cookery, is a wonderful teacher, as was our delightful language tutor, Francesca. Both were so patient and good-humoured. Thank you Eva for inspiring me to make all that lovely Italian food, and for taking such good care of my vegetarian dietary requirements. Thank you Angelo for driving and accompanying us to our visits and bringing everything to life in such a fascinating way - I'm just starting to live down my confusion at the chestnut mill with mais (corn) and mice (i topi)! Our visits to all the gastronomical places of interest (and consumption!) were fantastic and gave an insight that we wouldn't have experienced by ourselves. Lucca is such a beautiful and intoxicating city and I wasn't able to see enough of it, so hope to be back next year for another course and more sight-seeing. It was a pleasure to know all my language classmates, food course mates (Sue, thank you especially for your infectious laugh and constant humour) and all the staff at the school. Best wishes to all.

"I was so impressed with the efficiency of the Lucca Italian School (LIS) as well as the relaxed and friendly atmosphere which was apparent the moment I arrived for registration. This atmosphere permeated to the students who I also found great company across all nationalities. Lessons were relaxed and fun, which is so conducive to learning. Eva, my tutor, is an absolute star. She was encouraging without putting pressure on students. How she can make grammar so simple and clear is a marvel. Her lessons improved my Italian considerably after only a week although not my waistline as I was on the Cook Italian course in the afternoons! This was run by Eva in conjunction with Angelo, who joined us for the outings outside Lucca. I thoroughly enjoyed this course too which enabled me to meet other students from different Italian classes. I love Italian food even more now. I have come home inspired to improve my Italian language and Italian cooking skills further. What struck me was the number of other students who return to LIS time and again. That speaks volumes and I fully intend to be among their number at LIS next year. I can’t recommend Lucca and particularly the Lucca Italian School highly enough. Thank you so much for a marvellous week. Sue Reynolds (Rugby, UK)”

Dear Daniela, I just wanted to let you and the school and Chiara know that our group family lessons were fabulous. Chiara did so well to engage all the different levels in one classroom. Adults, teenagers plus primary school levels. Some beginners . Some not. Almost an impossible task but she did it. We all learnt to speak in shops and I got to speak comfortably in the past tense and am now moving on to the future. Antony can understand all of it and with more practice as we travel will be ready to use all the words and verbs Chiara taught him. The kids are all set to seek what they would like in shops and I am refusing to talk for them for the rest of our travels. Thus they will get better every day. We all got something out of it. Thanks so much. You all have a lovely school there. Lots of warmth and beauty around you. Lots of respect for the students and a friendly welcoming sense to the place. Wonderful. From Heather, Antony, Zoe , Lily and Eva.
