Laura Poggi, from the gorgeous Casa Tolomei in Via Umberto I in La Villa, is starting a small language school. She and her family have many years of experience and Laura is keen to start a new venture in Bagni di Lucca.
In a previous post I wrote about the amazing transformation Laura and her husband Andy have achieved in the house where Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning spent a couple of summers in the 19th century. They bought it 5 years ago and have brought the beautiful house back to life. See the post here.
Work continues, but a couple of rooms are now available to rent and Laura can turn her attention to Italian lessons. This beautiful room will be for small groups. Larger groups will be in another part of the house.
It is possible to have one on one lessions with Laura, or to be part of a group lesson, the classes are flexible. Laura is delightful and I know her classes will be a lot of fun, the best way to learn a new language. Whether you are a beginner or more advanced, a course can be tailored for you.
Residential courses are also available, where you can stay at Casa Tolomei, take lessons in the morning and practise your Italian while exploring the villages.
Please email Laura at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Oh my, oh my. If wishes were horses….
It is a beautiful place to learn a new language.
I spent some time in Lucca and Barga in musical tours and workshops when I was in college. My voice teacher was from Lucca and always maintained that the purest form of spoken Italian was to be found in Lucca. A good setting for a language school 🙂
It is an excellent setting. I think people might like to come to Bagni di Lucca to learn Italian.
That’s wonderful, what a good idea. I would love to go there and have lessons whilst I stay at my house.
