What we like about the school

  • Located in the centre of Viareggio, within walking distance from the beach.
  • The school is next to a Pinewood forest where you can go jogging, rent a bicycle or play tennis.

What we dislike about the school

  • Do not offer favorable cancellation terms in the case of a student getting a visa rejected.

Location: In the region of Tuscany is the picturesque beach town of Viareggio. Viareggio is roughly two hours on public transport from Florence and 45 minutes from the renowned Leaning Tower of Pisa, perfect for a day trip or weekend adventure. A few blocks away from the beach is the school Centro Puccini, a language school with 30 years of experience in teaching the Italian language. The school has a central location, perfect for exploring the art deco architectural exterior throughout the streets or soaking up a relaxed beach vibe with an evening stroll along the promenade. There is plenty to keep you busy after a day of study with bars, restaurants and cafes all located in close proximity to the school.

School facilities: Centro Puccini is spread over 2 floors and has 9 classrooms with other facilities including a garden, outdoor terrace and gazebo. The staff at Centro Puccini are young and all members of ASILS, so your learning is in safe and highly motivated hands.

Course structure: There are a number of lessons offered at the school for students to really get involved in the Italian culture including Italian and Hiking for the adventurous and Culinary Arts for Professionals for those wanting to learn tips for this exquisite cuisine. By using interactive class activities such as role plays in everyday tasks like telephone calls as well as discussions over analysis of films and newspaper articles enables students to use and practice all they have learned both inside and outside of a classroom setting.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: If you aren't happy with your level then ask to move - the school will accommodate changes. Make sure you take the train and do some sight-seeing..
Other comments: I didn't think the book we used was very clear - but the teaching was good. Nice to be able to meet at the beach club but the school doesn't organise much to bring the students together.
The friendly contact with each other, the approachability of the teachers and their teaching skills.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: The beach parties and Wednesday trips.
Other comments: I was very impressed that every request was met...be it personal or about a tour. The host family was wonderful. One day I left early not feeling well, when I was late the next day, my host family was contacted to see how I was.
The teachers were very competent and answered all the questions, also regarding private issues.
