What our students say


Peter Phillipson

Although I’d studied Italian for several years in the UK, I lacked confidence and fluency. I will always be grateful to Marzia and Maddalena – in a short period of time they greatly improved all my language skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking). Classes were always very enjoyable - good teachers know how to make learning a pleasure! I can honestly say that the successful completion of my degree course in 2014 was largely due to Marzia and Maddalena’s dedication and patience. Peter Phillipson (BA Italian & History, University of Hull, UK)

Amray Novak

I really recommend the teachers imparting the Italian language and culture. Since a couple of years I take part in the courses not only to improve my Italian, but also to enjoy a different life style. Amray Novak  from Düsseldorf  (Germany)

John & Priya Doyle

Studente 2016
We attended the 2 to 1 language classes. The experience level and skills of the teachers was very high. They are professionals in what they do. They were not the cheapest option but we are glad we chose them, because they were worth it. John & Priya Doyle London UK
