I strongly believe that there is nothing better for a traveller than learning the language of the place they are visiting. When I travel I always try to learn at least few sentences in the language of the countries I am visiting; consequently I encourage others to do so. I think that learning the language of the place you are visiting allows you to better enjoy the wonders of a new culture, without excluding the great possibility of making new friends and enjoying the adventure of the journey.

Motivation is the key to open the door of a language and my target is to help people to find the right key to open that door. There is no nicer place to teach Italian than Italy itself. I enjoy teaching my own language to people who are passionate about it. My goal isn’t just to teach Italian but to promote the culture, food and landscapes of Italy. I believe that language is the starting instrument to become familiar with new customs and traditions and I am happy to encourage my students to use the language to do so. This is my way to provide them with an unforgettable Italian experience!
