Ciao a tutti! I learned Italian through immersion with Italian speakers as a young teenager. I won an Italian competition as a 9th grader against 12th graders called "Il Cenacolo". I also got a 5 on the AP Italian test. I have a Master's degree in Education and understand the psychology of learning. I am a supportive and encouraging educator that continually pushes my students. Lessons will be engaging and interactive. We learned our first language through a combination of speaking, listening, body language, and trial and error! Our lessons will focus on building your oral fluency in being able to comprehend and express yourself in Italian.

Private Italian Teacher

Ciao a tutti! Hello everyone! My name is Cindy and I'm Italian. I've been teaching Italian in schools and privately for many years now...I was raised in Rome where I have lived and worked for most of my life.

Do you want to learn Italian in a natural way, outside the bounds of a traditional language school? Studying a foreign language is an absorbing, complex experience.

It involves not only mastering new words, but also gaining a deeper understanding of the culture in which the language is rooted. To achieve this goal I devote all my enthusiasm, my skill at communication, and a sense of humor which makes for a relaxed study environment.

About Cynthia

Are you going on holiday to Italy? Would you like to learn the language? Do you think it is too hard to learn a language as an adult? Do you think you won't have time to study? There are many ways to learn a language. It doesn't have to be all that complicated or hard. Everyone has a personal way to

Private Italian Teacher

Ciao, my name is Milko and I am a native Italian speaker who currently lives in Chicago. I love languages and I'm passionate about the skills that make us able to express ourselves in any situation. My lessons will use materials taken from real life, like songs, short stories, videos or article from Italian newspapers. We can talk about literature, cinema, cuisine, tourism or anything you will find more interesting. We will take care of grammar rules and common mistakes that will make you sound like a pro Italian speaker. I offer in person and online classes for all skill levels.

About MILKO

I'm Italian and I moved to the US 7 years ago. I always loved my native language and my classical studies (latin, greek and philosophy) gave me the knowledge to use it in a very proper way. I love grammar but at the same time I'm passionate to share with my students the "every day" language that wou

Ciao amici! I'm Rita! I'm 29, and was born and raised in Catania, Italy. I studied food science in Italy until 4 years ago, after that I moved in America and started a new path as a dental hygienist. In the meantime I teach yoga, Pilates and my beautiful language, Italian. As a real Sicilian I have a big passion for food and I would love to do some cooking class soon. I love to help students reach their goals; with a little bit of patience and passion I believe everyone has the potential to succeed. Can't wait to meet you!

About Rita

Hi, I am Rita and I am from Sicily, Italy. I moved to America 4 years ago and can now, at 29, finally say that I know enough English to allow me to have a smooth conversation with you. When I landed in US I did not know this platform existed, otherwise it would have been faster and easier to immerse

Rita is a highly recommended italian teacher for whom , as i was, starts to learn this beautiful language. Two thumbs UP!
Henry T
Rita has bene great for keeping my Italian up. After learning Italian during my years of working in Italy, I had become rusty, not having spoken it for many years, and was looking for a way to retain my abilities. Rita is a great conversationalist, and a great personality. I always have a great time speaking with her during our sessions.

Rita is a great teacher!

My younger son takes the first 15 minutes because his attention span is shorter. Then my 10 year old daughter and I finish the session together. I couldn’t be happier!"

Italian Grammar: Exploring Cognates and False Cognates

Italian grammar can be a tough thing for beginners to master. Below, Italian teacher Giulio G. gives a brief lesson in recognizing Italian cognates and false cognates... Although English and Italian belong to two different language families, they have lexis similarities. In fact, it is estimated that around 30 percent of the English vocabulary comes from Romance and Latin sources. It's for this exact reason why it is possible to find many cognates--or words that sound or are spelled …
