How we Teach

Teaching Italian, in Italian

All our lessons are taught in Italian, including at beginner level, because only by listening and responding in Italian can you really learn. It is like riding a bicycle; only if you start doing the action yourself can you learn it properly.

What people say about us: “What a lovely way to learn this beautiful language! Laura will take you on this journey step by step and at your own pace with plenty of time for questions and clarification. She makes it fun too, using a variety of teaching methods and will both support and guide you. Once upon a time learning a language was boring, stuffy and felt like a mountain to climb, but this is much nicer! Forza!” Nick Thomson
