Florence is a wonderful city. You will find lots of boutiques, shoe shops, cafés and small markets. In Via Tornabuoni you will find the best designer shops. Together with your group leaders you will take a tour of the city, visit the city’s famous churches, the “Boboli Garden” or admire the sculpture of the David of Michelangelo in “Piazza Michelangelo”. You will also have the chance to admire famous pieces of art at the Uffizi Gallery. After the lessons we organise a film afternoon with movies by, for example, Rossellini and Fellini. Let yourself be inspired by these masterpieces! Write your own screenplay in Italian and then film it. Together we will go to the medieval town of Siena, Pisa where the leaning tower is, or to Viareggio with its beautiful beaches. We play volleyball, football, or we swim in the swimming pool and organise picnics and school parties.
LISA! Language courses for teenagers »
Our LISA! Language courses for teenagers are perfectly organised and supervised. In our school in Florence, your child will learn or improve his or her language skills in a friendly and cosy atmosphere. Your son or daughter will be supervised by the host families, the school team as well as our team leaders, who are always available for help and advice.

During his or her stay, your child will be accommodated with a friendly host family. In our schools in Florence we also offer language courses for adults. You can find more information about our courses in the menu ‘adults’.
Our language courses for children and teenagers involve a fully organised and supervised free-time programme. In our schools in Florence, students from the age of 16 can also take part in a language course for adults without an organised and supervised free-time programme. Because of this option, the student can organise his or her free time individually therefore, the course price is lower.

Our language school in Florence is accredited by Region Tuscany - Certiquality and CSN; it is a member of ECL and EDUITALIA and certified UNI EN ISO 9001:2008 no. 15180.

Your LISA! language course for teenagers »
On arrival, your child will be welcomed by our group leaders or by his or her host family. On the first day, a language test takes place. Groups are formed on the basis of language levels therefore, teenagers are usually with others of a similar age. This guarantees excellent and successful learning. With a LISA! language course you will open your child to a whole new world and give it the chance to broaden its horizon. We also prepare your child for his or her final exams or help to improve school marks.
After classes, our great group leaders and the school team will provide your child with a wide range of free-time activities. At the weekends the school organises day or half-day trips. Your child has the opportunity to spend the remaining time with his or her host family. Please be aware that there are times when your children may be unsupervised. However, our school team is always at disposal.
Flights are not included in the prices of our language courses for teenagers. We recommend flying to Florence. Return transfers are included in the price. Although we do not provide an accompanying service for the flight itself, our friendly school team will greet all students upon arrival at the destination airport or train station and accompany them to their accommodation. Arrivals must be on Sundays between 06:00 and 23:00, and departures on Saturdays between 06:00 and 23:00. Should your child travel with the UM service, an extra transfer cost may apply.
