Giuliana is a wonderful teacher and guide for Italian language and culture. I really enjoyed our small class and she managed our different levels of experience very gracefully. We all learned a great deal over the course of a year together and we miss her immensely!
Sam
Giuliana is the most patient and encouraging teacher that I have yet encountered. She truly strives to make Italian entertaining as well as simple. Prior to my lessons with her, learning a whole new language seemed to be a daunting task, as well as the seemingly insurmountable goal of losing my native accent while speaking. Through our online lessons, she has taught me grammar and a vast vocabulary that served me very well in my trip to Italy. If there is one teacher who can truly teach the language quickly and easily, it's Giuliana.

Giuliana is an extraordinary teacher and instructor who makes learning fun and exciting. She is patient and accommodating, and has a true knack and talent for making sure you truly understand the material. I highly recommend her

Hello everyone!

My name is Simona I am 31 years old and I am Italian.
I have been living in Chicago for almost 5 years. I have a background in Communication and I started to teach Italian a year ago and I love it!
I would be very happy to help you with my beautiful language. Besides grammatical rules I could also teach you about Italian culture, traditions, food and place to visit, if you would like.
Unfortunately with the COVID, I am currently giving lessons over zoom meeting and I would send you the link before the lesson.
I am available Monday, Thursday and Friday.
We can do a first lesson just to see how you like it (kind of a trial).
Let me know if you have any other question.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Private Italian Teacher

I have been living for a year in Italy, Bologna (2007-2008). I started to learn Italian there. It seemed to be hard. With time, it has been becoming more natural. This is a beautiful language one can learn.

I picked up most of my Italian work for an Italian organization for 7 years. Now it is my past. However, Italian is still my present and I would love to share my knowledge with those who learn Italian.
I will customize the lesson for each student. The most important is trust between a teacher and a student. If you feel I could help you, I would love to help.

Mi piacerebbe di trovare il modo di condividere con gli altri quello che ho imparato io. Grazie! Alla prossima!

Amazing teacher, was able to cover so much ground on the first day alone. She will definitely get you where you need to go and is very nice and helpful.
Anastassiya
I appreciated the lessons with Irina. She helped me a lot with my English.

She managed to find the closest way for me to start speaking. I'd say her superpower is good knowledge of the subject together with the good awareness of how human mind works. It makes the learning highly effective.

Irina, thank you!
Stephen
Only language teacher, who has lot of patience to address your queries, appreciate it. She can also touch upon various literary works which would ignite further interest in language learning. Much recommended.

Online Italian Teacher

I'm an experienced Italian teacher - I was born and raised in Italy and I graduated from the University "La Sapienza" in Rome with a Master Degree in Italian Literature and History. I've been teaching Italian and Italian history for the past 10 years of my career. Both in Colleges here in the U.S.A. and online.
I offer a very proficient method of learning. Part of the lesson would be focused on the grammar and writing, part of the lesson would consist in one to one conversation. Depending on the level of my students, we would develop the vocabulary on a daily basis and I can guarantee my students will be able to have a conversation in Italian within just a few lessons!

Maya is awesome! She's really easy and fun to work with, patient and really, really knows her stuff. I am an actor and she gave me exactly what I needed for my current project, and I plan to work with her more to develop accurate dialects/accents. Thrilled with her work!

I give Gina a 5 star because it doesn't have a 10. She is awesome, smart, fun, and caring. I take Spanish and makes so much easier because she also speaks fluent Portuguese (my native language), and she can explain the difference between both language. I highly recommend Gina :)

Discover Italy in the Heart of New York

By Nadia B. - New York City Italian Teacher

New York City is a bustling center of Italian activity. The city is full of options to practice your Italian, experience the culture and increase your knowledge of Italian literature, history and art. New York City holds particular meaning for me in relationship to Italy, as I finished my undergraduate degree in Italian language and literature at New York University and made many Italian friends residing in the city along the way. If you're interested in taking Italian lessons in New York City, then here are a few recommendations of places and events that will inspire your exploration of this amazing language and culture!

  1. New York University's Casa Italiana My Italian home in the city will always be New York University’s

...

Casa Italiana. Located on a quiet street in the Village, the residence of the Italian Department is chock full of film screenings, lectures, roundtables, art openings and more. Most of the offerings are totally free and are a way to deepen your understanding of Italian culture and history. It’s also a way to see what it means to be Italian, as the Casa Italiana is staffed by the Italian department, which is largely composed of Italian-born professors, administrators and graduate students. Further uptown, another option in the city is Columbia University’s Casa Italiana, which also features a variety of events.

  • San Gennaro Every September, the streets of Little Italy (which is, itself, a place to visit for a dose of Italian-American culture!) transform into the vibrant street festival San Gennaro (www.sangennaro.org). This is an exciting festival because it is an authentic Italian celebration observed by Italians around the world. You can witness the processional, try some delicious foods and bask in the plethora of events that allow you to explore, learn and discover. I highly recommend this festival as a fun and easy way to become better acquainted with Italian culture.

  • Arthur Avenue In addition to Little Italy, Arthur Avenue in the Bronx is is another authentic neighborhood where you can experience the feel and look of Italian culture. Convenient and close to Manhattan, you will see and hear Italians congregating in the streets and the market. You can browse the shops, ask questions and meet the purveyors and creators of authentic Italian goods. These experiences will increase your understanding of typical Italian foods, daily activities and the pride of Italian immigrants, which allows for the creation and sustainability of authentic enclaves of Italian culture.

  • Eataly Traveling back downtown to the Flatiron district, Eataly is a gigantic food emporium and is an eye-widening way to get to know Italy. Enormous, and fully stocked with Italian foods, you can have an espresso, taste traditional dolci (sweets), sit down for a classy meal at one of the several restaurants located inside, and even stop by the Nutella shop, which focuses exclusively on the deliciously addictive Italian treat. Eataly is a unique Italian experience that will educate you on the practices and appreciation of food in Italy. Originally founded in Turin, Italy, it is also connected to the Slow Food Movement, which originated in Italy, as well. Visiting Eataly will give you an experience that is hard to find outside Italy - that of the art of enjoyment, pleasure and shared eating.

  • These suggestions are only the beginning of exploring Italian culture while taking Italian lessons in New York City. Taste, discover, speak and travel to another world, and, as you meet the individuals in each location, you will make friends, learn new words and discover a whole other experience of Italy, rooted in tradition, authenticity and cross-cultural discovery.
