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.

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.
