Overview

LIS is a school of Italian language and culture located in the city center, in a very nice building with a large garden and a terrace in front of the city walls. We offer group courses and individual classes of Italian for students any age and level, and recreational activities (like excursions, cooking lessons, bike trips, seminaries on Italian cinema or music). Our mission is to provide our students, beside teaching them our language, with a practical and enjoyable experience of our way of life, aiming at a mutually enriching cultural exchange.

The classes covered grammar as part of the everyday conversation. As such, we covered both in a natural flowing way. In addition, the after school activities offered both cultural insight and additional language training. As a result, I will be returning.
