Tell me about some of your current students.
Chiara is almost 3 years old and I started teaching her Italian since she was 1 and a half years old. She has learnt so fast this last year, she can understand Italian very well and answer in Italian language. It's been such a great satisfaction for me!
Edgardo is 9 years old and he's really into the lessons. He's always really motivated about learning Italian and its culture. He doesn't hesitate to ask me questions about grammar or pronunciation when he's doubtful.
Emelie is a girl that wants to learn Italian to have the ability to communicate with her Italian boyfriend and his boyfriend's family and friends when she goes to Italy. She is really fond of Italian meals and culture!
Helen's passions are languages and psychology, so she decided to contact me because she wanted to improve her skills in psychological Italian language.
Do you have a personal message for students?
Learning a foreign language is an incredibly rewarding experience and a serious confidence booster. You'll get to overcome some of your fears and doubts, learn more about yourself, meet new people, and perhaps travel to places you would’ve never dared to visit before. Plus, the constant positive feedback from native speakers and their encouragement is always a motivation and ego booster!
