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.
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.
Courses in Pisa
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. Students attend the language course only for a period of 4 weeks (this is included in the price for the programme) and 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!
As well as high-quality Italian language courses, our school also arranges a fantastic programme of optional activities, such as trips to the Piazza dei Miracoli (home to the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa), school parties, wine-tasting and trips to places such as Florence, Siena and Rome. As with all our schools, all the activities offered are optional and may incur a small additional charge payable directly to the school to cover costs such as entrance fees and transport.
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.
