Learn Italian in Pisa, Italy
One of our most popular Italian schools, Pisa is a beautiful location in which to study Italian abroad. Located in Tuscany, Pisa has a large historic centre, unspoilt by modern development, offering a very traditional ‘Italian’ location in which to learn the Italian language and enjoy the Tuscan lifestyle and cooking.
With cultural events throughout the year, you can study Italian in Pisa at any time of year and be guaranteed plenty to do and see. Many students come from abroad to Tuscany to study Italian, but Tuscany is also popular with native Italian students. Each year thousands of students study at university in Pisa.
Though you can study Italian at any of our schools in Italy, our school in Pisa also offers an Italian cooking course in the evenings, extremely popular with students from abroad on Italian courses at the school.
Very enjoyable experience, very high standard of teaching, I was provided with a helpful map of Pisa on my first day, easy to make friends with other students, convenient location of school, well-organised.
Our school in Pisa
Our Pisa school is centrally-located, just a short walk from famous leaning tower. Established over 20 years ago, it was one of the first schools in Tuscany to offer Italian language courses for students from abroad.
The school offers ‘Standard’ (20 lessons/week) and ‘Intensive’ (30 lessons/week) Italian courses. You can also choose to study ‘History or Art’, ‘Italian Grammar’ or ‘Italian cooking’. The school also arranges for some students to do a period of work experience at the school, combining study abroad with useful work experience. During their work experience, students continue to study the standard Italian course at the school free of charge. Please contact us for further details of this work experience abroad program.
Students can stay with carefully-selected Italian host families, shared student apartments, or in private studio apartments. Our school in Pisa recommends that students from abroad stay in host families, so that they practice with the family the Italian language they study on their course. In this way they also benefit from the excellent cooking that Italians from Tuscany are so proud of!
Like our other schools in Tuscany and elsewhere in Italy, our school in Pisa provides an extensive cultural program, including a welcome party in your first week of study, Italian film evenings, pizza parties in the school, beach parties, plus excursions to Siena, Florence, Lucca, Rome, Venice, Milan. This activities program not only ensures that students enjoy their time in Italy, but also helps them use outside the classroom the Italian that they learn on the course.
How to get there
Our school in Pisa arranges airport transfers from Pisa Airport/Railway Station, for students who prefer to be met on arrival and taken to their accommodation. The service is also available from Florence Airport/Railway Station.
If I name the city Pisa, you will probably think about the Leaning Tower of Pisa and all the funny photos everybody takes below it trying to make it not fall down!
But besides this fantastic monument and the famous Piazza dei Miracoli, Pisa is also well known, at least among the Italians, for being one of the best University cities and offering to its students a really amazing night life!!
I have a few friends studying there and every time I can, I go there for the weekend! The city is really pretty and quite easy to get around by bike or foot with two nice bridges linking the two parts of the city together.
