Our first lesson went very well. I enjoyed our discussions and we were able to do a lot in the 50 minutes. I love that she is Italian born and her pronunciation is authentic. I already have a high level of knowledge and she was able to get right to what would be best for my needs. I like that Donatella was able to type notes on Skype and I can refer to them during the week. Already in just one session of conversation I have been motivated to continue improving during the week, have been speaking more Italian with my husband and spending 20 minutes a day working on grammar.

I have enjoyed working with Donnatella very much. We spend a month or more in Italy each year and I have depended on my husband to do all the speaking since he is fluent. This year I am determined to learn Italian, and Donnatella has gotten me well on my way. I am a beginner, and she has been very patient, understanding and has taken the time to learn my personal style of learning. She is a wonderful teacher and I highly recommend her.
