Why not take advantage of your time in Italy to learn the language? It's easy, fun, and gives a great sense of achievement. Furthermore, since you're here in Italy, you can try out your new skills right away! You can take lessons here, in the centre of Bagni di Lucca.
We offer private lessons with an experienced tutor, either one-to-one or for small groups who share approximately the same level of ability in Italian. Lessons are available for all stages of the learning process, whether you are starting from scratch, already know the basics, or have reached intermediate to advanced levels. Your lessons will be individually tailored to match your current ability.
You can take introductory or occasional lessons to get you going, however, to make sure it sticks, and for those wishing to learn in the most efficient way, it's recommended to take a regular course. About 2 to 3 hours per week would be recommended as a minimum for long-term residents. If your time is limited (e.g. you are here on a summer holiday) you could take a more intensive course in order to make good progress (e.g. 1 or 2 hours per day, mon-fri).
Residential courses are also available, where you stay in one of the lovely suites of the villa and take one or more hours of language lessons in the mornings - leaving the rest of the day free to explore the area and try out your Italian!
