Practice makes perfect! My teaching style is based on language living rather than language studying, and while I will provide you with all of the tools to apply the correct grammar rules I encourage you to make mistakes, and learn naturally by being exposed to the language. I am 100% Italian native speaker, and I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge of the Italian language and culture with you .

· Italian · Online Simona is 'fantabulous', she is informative, linguistically knowledgeable, possess clear understanding of English grammar; which is an all but dead discipline, applies it to Italian, and for the interested and eager student makes learning that much more rapid and enjoyable. I had a mere fractional knowledge of Italian before I started with Simona, I know in a reasonable amount of time with application and study I will reach my goal of being conversant and comfortable in Italian. I look forward to many many lessons with Ms. Strianese as she imparts language understanding, usage and both formal and familiar Italian communication.

· Italian · Online Excellent. It is just what I need. Lots of grammar, lots of conversation, not too rigid (we fluidly move through different subjects). Good sharing of resources to help me learn and study further. Excellent! Grazie.
