I have been taking private Italian lessons at ILM for several years now - 2 hours per week during the summer months when I am in Pisa. The one-on-one lessons are perfect for me - flexible hours and I... set my own goals. The teacher designs the curriculum around those goals and I've made real progress!read more

I went to Italy to learn the beautiful Italian language. A beginner with enthusiasm, I enrolled in an immersion class for 5 weeks. I really wanted to learn the basic's .... and I learned so much... more.The school is small and friendly with a commitment to making each student's experience the best. The composition of the class was perfect...over the 5 weeks it was as intimate as 4 students or as "large as 8. A perfect blend of engagement from eager learners.The teachers are superb. My instructor used a combination of grammar and speaking to get us started and reinforced lessons with practical homework. She also paid attention to how we were progressing and tailored her teaching to suit our particular learning styles.Knowing how much I love cooking, they also invited me to their homes....to cook together....!!!! To express how special that was is difficult. I was touched and excited and honored to have such a personal window into their lives...at home, with family. It will remain a remarkable memory.I was so impressed and thrilled, really with every aspect of the experience. Most importantly, at the end of my course, I had the confidence to speak to people and be understood. That was amazing.I look forward to continuing my studies and returning next summer to reinforce and build on a strong foundation.One warning I will share...when I signed up, I thought I was on the schools website directly. I was in fact going through an agent, but didn't realize that. The agent arranged everything. Once I arrived, I sent the agent feedback specific to an arrangement for cooking classes. Their response shocked me, but I won't go into that .... suffice it to say they were awful. No interest to know how I was doing...they got their commission and onto the next. Take care that you register directly with the school, and not through a middle man. That was my one regret.read more

I did a 5 day course of 4 hours each morning and an extra one to one session of 1 hour on 3 afternoons that week. The school is very friendly and the tutors very professional. We were all... encouraged to speak Italian as much as possible which was very helpful. The teaching methods were mixed, grammar, conversation, listening exercises etc, so it was never boring. I stayed in a cosy private apartment just 20 minutes walk from the school. Pisa is quite small and easy to find your way around. We had a lovely evening out with the students from other classes and the tutors and a lovely lunch on the last day with my classmates and tutors. I would recommend the school and especially Alessio, my tutor and I would like to go back again next year to continue to improve my Italian.read more

Avevo fatto tanti corsi a questa scuola e succesivamente ho portato anche i miei genitori ed altri amici. Dopo aver studiato con quasi tutti gli insegnanti della scuola posso dire che sono tutti... bravissimi. La presidente della scuola ha sempre la sua porta aperta per risolvere ogni problema o richiesta. Anche se ci sono a volte differenze minori di livello fra gli studenti nella stessa classe, gli insegnanti sano molto bene come insegnare in un modo che nessuno si ferirà dal suo livello più altro o più basso. Sia gli insegnanti che la presidente conoscono ogni studente personalmente e gli forniscono tutti gli strumenti adatti per lui per l'apprendimento migliore della lingua.Fra tutti gli insegnanti, consiglierei di più Ileana ed Alessio.read more
