First, I would like to tell you that I had a marvelous experience being a student at your center. It was great fun, I learned a good deal, and I met some very interesting people. The organization of the course work was excellent. The different components-- listening to cassettes, reading articles, playing word games and talking with different partners or small groups--served the students very well. I was very impressed with the teachers' willingness to allow spontaneous conversation among the students to continue and to use it as part of the lessons themselves. 'Real conversations' prove far more interesting and generate a real urgency to grapple with the language. The people of Lucca with whom I interacted were extremely polite, friendly, helpful, and very tolerate of my emerging italian. I congratulate you on your excellent school, and do hope to return some day.

I had one of the best weeks of my entire life in Lucca! Everything went like clockwork: the Sargentis were charming, school friendly, other students interesting, town fascinating, weather pleasant, food brilliant. Spoke Italian nearly all the time, and I feel about 20 years younger. Thanks for all your arrangements.
