Caro Angelo e Daniela e tutta LIS: Una settimana fa io and la mia amica Miriam siamo state studentesse a LIS. Era per noi un’esperienza felice, quindi volevo scrivervi e ringraziarvi. Per quasi tutta la mia vita la mia professione e la mia vocazione sono state di fare la professoressa. Ho pensato molto dell’arte degli insegnanti. Che gran piacere quindi incontrarmi con tale insegnanti egregie come Antonella e Lorenza . Tutte e due sono molto professionali, ma anche molto spontanee e simpaticissime. Tutte e due hanno fatti programmi giusti per loro studenti: Antonella ha integrato la lettura con la conversazione casuale e con le idioma; Lorenza ha legato nostre lezione ai miei interessi nella letteratura e nell’India. Mi è piaciuta specialmente la scelta da Antonella dei brani di Calvino. Non devo dimenticare la vostra gentilezza il venerdì scorso quando Miriam ed io abbiamo monopolizzato il vostro computer a stampare—con grande difficoltà—le nostra carte di imbarco. Il tempo a LIS era per me e per Miriam tutto un piacere e speriamo ritornare. Cari saluti e molte grazie, Judith Plotz

Vorrei ringraziarvi tutti per una settimana meravigliosa al LIS. I miei più calorosi ringraziamenti a Antonella, Susanna, Angelo, Chiara e naturalmente Daniela. Antonella è un'insegnante eccezionale : lei ha la capacità di tirare fuori il meglio dai suoi studenti , di dare loro la sicurezza di esprimersi in italiano, allo stesso tempo per espandere la loro conoscenza della grammatica, e della cultura italiana. Questa settimana "Parla e conosci Puccini" è stata molto piacevole, con le visite a Torre del Lago e Celle Puccini, i concerti e le mostre . Ma anche istruttiva, con tante informazioni molto interessanti, con dettagli che non conoscevo prima. Susanna è si ben informata e entusiasta dell'opera! E' stata una grande avventura per me: sono molto felice di essere venuta a LIS! Vi mando tutti i miei migliori auguri per futuro: sento di aver fatto nuove amicizie e spero di tornare presto. Con i miei abbracci più calorosi a tutti Voi, Ewa

I love group travel for cultural activities. School personnel are serious professionals and all deserve a standing ovation. I think you operate a very successful school regarding the accomplishment of your mission. You are teaching the Italian language very, very well. I could have written this in Italian thanks to you but as I have told Agnese (my teacher) some things are too important to leave to chance.

Having just returned from five weeks in Lucca, I can highly recommend Lucca Italian School. This is the second time I have attended this school, and I am not surprised to see how much it has grown in the last four years. The school is within the walls in a beautiful historic building. The class size is kept small and students are grouped by ability, so there is plenty of opportunity for conversation. The teachers are wonderful and manage to teach new concepts while keeping the lessons fresh and relevant to the students. Beyond the morning classes, the school offers a variety of activities from which to choose. There are afternoon courses which include cooking, art, music or just walking and discovering the surrounding areas. All are fun, and while other schools in Italy just send you on excursions with private companies, these afternoon programs are done with your fellow students and led by LIS teachers. A great chance to make new friends from all over the world. An especially wonderful treat for those of us who like to travel alone. The school can help you arrange housing, but Lucca also has an abundance of apartment rentals of all sizes to accommodate any size group. I was just there with five cousins, and we were able to find wonderful apartments that fit our needs. I think the greatest testament to the school is the fact that so many of the students were people who had been to the school before, and all of us talked about how we would be returning in the future. There cannot be higher praise. As for Lucca, it is not a small village, but the center part of the town with its five hundred year old wall gives one the feeling that this is a small town. Lucca is the perfect place to spend an extended amount of time because it is large enough to offer a variety of things to do and places to go, without the chaos of a large city like Florence of Rome. It is very safe even for a woman traveling on her own. There are large events that take place there like the Rolling Stones concert this last September and the annual Comics and Games Festival in October, and there are also smaller events throughout the year. The train station is a two minute walk from the walls, and it is very easy to travel to all parts of Italy from Lucca. There are also dozens of small day trips (or half-day trips) that can easily be made via bus or train. Or you can find the real local side of Italy on a two minute walk outside the walls. I have recommended LIS to more than a dozen friends, and everyone of them has enjoyed the school and the location.

I've traveled to Lucca 1 - 2 times every year for the last 6 years, each time spending between 2 and 5 weeks at LIS. The staff members at LIS are exceptional - they are fantastic teachers and very supportive of students learning. It is an immersion program so all teaching is done in Italian. Students come from all over the world and often Italian is the only common language for all students which encourages everyone to stick to Italian rather than lapse into their own language in class. Lucca as a town is very friendly - I find that in shops and restaurants if I say I'm there to learn Italian they are more than willing to speak only Italian with me. Yes, there are tourists. But it is not completely overrun like some larger towns. In addition, Lucca has great train connections, is safe (even for solo female travelers), is less expensive than the larger cities, and has good apartment options. The other students in the classes add to learning and provide lots of social contacts. LIS also offers afternoon cultural events which greatly enhance the joy of learning Italian in Italy.
