Hi everyone, my name is Valerio, and I'm a native Italian speaker born and raised in Turin, Italy. I love philosophy, meditation, and everything related to self-development. I also enjoy watching movies, learning languages, and spending time with my friends.
I have been teaching online for two years, with about 1000 lessons with 60 students. My price for the first lessons here is promotional. Do not hesitate to take advantage of my promotion and see you soon! :)
Human contact is essential when you teach. I need to put students in a comfortable and trusting environment. The primary and most important reason for this type of class is to find an opportunity to practice, and you need someone who understands you, who will not feel embarrassed to talk with, especially if you are a beginner. You have to talk: the most you speak, the best mistakes and you can improve.
The content of the class is flexible: students have different backgrounds and learning styles. So we will discuss and set your learning targets to tailor our lessons to your unique needs.
I like you if you speak about what you are interested in: languages are not an end in themselves. While you talk, I write the corrections, and you can see them live, but you are not interrupted, just like talking to a friend!
My name is Lucrezia and currently I live in Barcelona.
I'm Italian and have studied first in Italy, completing a Bachelor Degree in International Communication and then in Germany obtaining a Master of Arts in Communication at Duisburg-Essen University.
I have experience in teaching Italian both in classes and online for all levels, from beginner to advanced and for all ages from child to adult.
The languages I speak are Italian, German, English and Spanish.
My approach to teaching is using the direct method of teaching, where the students are encouraged to speak in the target language in real contexts or about real topics. I love teaching as it enables me to share my passion for communication, share ideas, see the students grow in knowledge and skills and above all have fun!
If you would like to learn Italian with me, please book a trial with me!
Thank you! Grazie!

My objective is to keep students challenged but not overwhelmed.

Hello, my name is Silvana.
I was born in Turin, where I live. I speak Italian with a clear, neutral accent. I have a Degree in Human Sciences with an Economic and Social specialisation and I have been teaching Italian for four years.
Each student has different needs and objectives when studying a foreign language. I will help you to meet your expectations.
Each lesson will be personalized according to your level (beginners, intermediate, advanced) and your interests; it will combine vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, conversation, writing.
I will provide you with all the necessary materials for the study and the exercises.
It will also be possible to take lessons focused specifically on Italian literature.
Having worked for 15 years in the commercial administrative office of an exporting company abroad, I can help you to learn how to use Italian for business purposes, such as writing a business letter.
Together, we will get into the heart of this language and culture.
I am looking forward to meeting you!
My name is Marzia and I am a native Italian language teacher! Are you interested in learning Italian to travel to Italy, to learn more about the Italian culture, or to connect with your Italian roots? Whatever your reason, I’d be happy to help you!
I have been teaching online for more than five years and I am passionate about sharing my love for my language with my students. I teach students of all ages and levels.
Lessons are based on the needs of my students. Some students prefer the traditional grammar approach, while others want to focus on conversation from the very first lesson. Regardless, my approach is communicative to enable my students to comfortably and confidently speak Italian since I believe that the purpose of a language is communication!
I use authentic materials including newspapers, magazines and listening exercises. This helps my students in their language journey since our lessons are more interesting.
If you would like to become more comfortable speaking Italian, I can help you! I know from personal experience that language learning takes perseverance and motivation and am ready to help you stay motivated! Learning while having fun is the key to success!
I would love to meet you and talk about your Italian language goals during a trial lesson!
Hi, I am Eleonora and I am from Italy (near Venice).
With me, you can improve your conversational Italian. I have more than 5 years of experience in tutoring students with different levels of Italian. Some of them were beginners when they started and they managed to reach a good level of Italian after few months. I also helped more experienced students with their university exams or thesis. So, even if my classes here focus more on spoken Italian when there is a need, we can improve your written and academic Italian.
My classes are personalized according to your needs, level of language, individual interests, and goals. During the classes, you will improve and learn new vocabulary and grammar. The classes are always different and we will use material such as songs, online videos, news, and literature text to help facilitate the conversation and your learning. It would be nice to have a cultural exchange so you can get to learn more about Italian Culture, its History, and its traditions. My students are of different nationalities and backgrounds giving me the chance to keep on learning myself. Personally, I speak fluently French and a bit of German, while I am currently learning Swedish.
I look forward to meeting you!
Hi! thanks for visiting my page! I am a professional English and Italian language teacher with over 4 years' experience teaching students from all around the world. I am very creative and curious, always excited about meeting new students and engage in interesting conversations. I always try to design a lesson around the learner's needs and focus on the areas to improve. I am very passionate about languages but I also love writing fiction, painting and playing the guitar. I am interested in various subjects from art to politics, from cinema to sport and culture.
I believe teaching should be fun, stimulating and inspiring. I plan my lessons in order to offer a variety of creative and exciting activities, a perfect balance of conversation, writing and listening. I also believe that the student should be made comfortable in order to express themselves and gain confidence with their spoken fluency.
My lessons are focused on vocabulary and spoken fluency but we'll practise the four skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing. I apply to the lessons a variety of methods and activities such as role plays, projects, games. At the end of the lesson I always provide feedback and clarification on emerging vocabulary or new expressions.
Hi ! I am Valentina and I am Pedagogical Director in an association dealing with plurilingualism enhancement and language didactics. I am native Italian and I'm certified as bilingual in French. I currently speak English, German, Spanish and some Polish.
I've been a language tutor since the age of 14 for English, German, French and Italian. My method :
Concerning my education : after a Bachelor in International Political Science (Italy, University of Trento) I completed a Master Degree in Design and Implementation of Cultural, Educational and Artistic Projects (Université de Cergy-Pontoise / School of Education of Versailles, France) and a second Master in Language Didactics and Plurilingualism Didactics.
I hope to hear from you soon to help you achieve your goals !
My name is Donatella and I’m a native Italian Language Tutor. First of all, I think it is very important to introduce myself to give you the chance to get to know me better: I have 2 graduate degrees: a Master's degree of Languages (in French and Japanese) and a Bachelor of Economics. In addition, I have a Master’s degree in Training and Human Resource Management.
For the last five years, I have been teaching French to Italian speakers and, above all, Italian to foreigners. I have learnt that each student is unique. Each student has a unique way of thinking, unique goals, and unique language learning needs.
As a teacher, I do my best to adapt to your needs. I plan our lessons to suit you and your learning style. During our trial lesson, we will discuss your learning goals and together we’ll make a detailed plan for you to reach them. Using my materials you will be speaking Italian from day 1.
During our classes we will develop all of the skills - reading, writing, listening and most importantly speaking - through many activities: listening to songs, watching film clips, reading texts; pronunciation exercises; the introduction and memorization of vocabulary in an efficient way; and the study of grammar in an interactive way. If you have any questions you are welcome to send a message. I hope to see you in class soon.
Ciao e spero a presto!!!
Ciao a tutti, sono Francesco. I am an Italian tutor, a learning specialist, and a screenwriter. I was born and raised in the majesty of Rome, and I love to teach my language.
Forget the old boring lessons with just tons of grammar and no fun; I use e-learning tools and many different activities to keep my students engaged. Once I have assessed your level and understood your goals, I will design the right course for you.
I will help you develop all the skills to speak proper Italian and sound authentic when visiting our marvelous country. My classes are a perfect blend of grammar, conversation, reading and comprehension, and, last but not least, writing. I will provide you with everything you need so you don't have to spend extra money on books.
In addition to my language courses, I also deliver writing classes. I can help you improve your writing skills and edit your creative works, such as essays, scripts, and novels.
I love traveling, arts, sports, meditation, and fancy cocktails! Yes, you heard right: fancy cocktails! What about you? What do you like? Let's chat about your interests, and of course, let's talk about Il Bel Paese!
Hi, I'm Cristina from Italy!
I'm here to help you learn and discover the beauties of the Italian language. My lessons are mainly focused on grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. My approach to teaching depends on the level and goals of the student. Not only will we learn grammar and new words but we will also pay attention to the correct pronunciation: the student will be given some exercises to practise their pronunciation (tongue twisters are great to practise the difficult sounds of a foreign language!). Moreover, we will develop the four language skills ( speaking, writing, listening and reading) through constant and gradual training.
With more advanced students, it can be great to have conversational lessons. Since I'm a very curious person (I'm very passionate about Science, Art and sport) we may talk about any topic you are interested in.
Do not hesitate to book a trial session.
See you soon! (:
Ciao! Hi there!
My name's Marika and I'm here to help you learn or improve your Italian.
I’ve been working as a teacher since 2016 and I also work as a trip leader for an American company.
Learning a foreign language is a real challenge that forces us out of our comfort zone, but isn’t it there that magic happens?!
My teaching method is based on a communicative approach. I’ll have you talk and use the target language in an active way as much as possible because that’s how you really learn! It doesn’t matter if you make mistakes, I’ve been there, I know how it feels. I’ll be there to help, not to judge you!
I use diverse materials for my classes: authentic material (extracts from newspaper articles, magazines), textbooks, worksheets, videos, songs and anything that may interest you.
Ready to learn Italian? Book a first trial lesson with me!
Hi, I'm a native Italian teacher and live in Salerno, a little town in the south of Italy.
I have been studying English and Spanish, so I know from experience that learning a language takes time and dedication. My aim is to make this process as pleasant and fun as possible.
I deal with many students around the world by giving language lessons, both in person, at the Italian language school Accademia Leonardo in Salerno, and via Skype or Zoom.
My passion for languages and my studies brought me to understand that languages are not just simple codes ruled by grammatical norms, but that they are actually used to express ourselves as individuals with different backgrounds and cultures.
Lessons will focus primarily on the conversational aspect of the language by using textbooks and materials (e.g. PDFs, audiofiles, Googledocs) that I use in language schools in Italy.
Since I have the DITALS certification, I can help you pass CELI, PLIDA and CILS exams.
Flexibility will be guaranteed according to the student. All students will be asked to take a placement test that they will have to submit at least 3 days before the first lesson. We be discussing the results during the fist lesson and then decide how to work together.
Since I also work at the language school, I strongly recommend booking in advance so I can arrange my agenda.
I’m ready, and you?
Hi, My name is Anna, and I'm from Venice in Italy.
I'm a bilingual Italian and English teacher and a freelance translator. I graduated in English language and literature at Ca' Foscari University in Venice, where I live with my family. I am studying to get a Postgraduate Master ITALS to teach Italian language to foreigners. My field of research is Psycholinguistics and Neurolinguistics to understand what happens in our brain when we study a new language.
I also have a CEDILS certification to teach Italian abroad. I've been teaching Italian and English since 2004. I work with students from all backgrounds, and my classes are for those who want to improve Italian communication, grammar, vocabulary and reading.
I focus on your needs, no matter what your level is and I work on your confidence because everyone of us is a learner and I know how it feels when you can't find the words.
My sessions are very personal because I think that each student is different and has a personal way to learn. I'll be very pleased to work with you and help you reach your goals. When I'm not teaching, I like travelling. I lived in London for some time and also in Liverpool while I was writing my thesis about the Scouse variety of English. I also speak Spanish and I'm a learner too, and I perfectly understand how hard it is to study a new language. So, book a class with me and we will learn a lot of new things together.
My goal is to create a friendly environment where you can practice Italian in any possible form. My lessons will be interactive and fun to maintain your motivation strong and to increase your confidence in the language.
You will learn at your own pace, with my help. You choose the difficulty, I will find the words. No worries, no judgment.
My teaching style and lessons vary depending on the requirements and goals of the student. Every person is different and requires different approaches. I am open to every method I can find to improve your Italian in the most efficient way.
We can have conversations about anything you are passionate about. We can analyse an article, describe movies and TV Shows you like, write and expose stories to strengthen your grammar, understand songs, videos and podcasts. My lessons will vary from conversation, listening, grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. When you will be ready, we can explore common expressions and colloquial Italian!
If you're just starting and you don't know many Italian words, don't worry! In the beginning, we can speak English. Later, we are going to speak only in Italian!
CIAO a tutti! Hello everybody! I'm Giuliana, a qualified Italian teacher with more than 10 years experience.
I’m a native Italian from sunny southern Italy and I hold a Degree in Foreign Languages and Literatures and Ditals II Level (Certificate of advanced skills in Teaching Italian to Foreigners). I am also a CILS Certification examiner.
I have students of all ages and I travel very often to prepare them for Italian language proficiency certifications (Cils, Celi, Roma 3). I taught in Turkey (Istanbul), in Perù (Lima) and in Togo (Lomè) to children, university students and adult people who love Italian language and culture.
My lessons are specifically based on your needs and goals and designed to enable you to COMMUNICATE in situations which you are likely to encounter in Italy. They are stimulating and interactive and organized in a relaxed environment in which learning feels like a natural process.
I chose to teach online because I love to share my knowledge and culture with people from all around the world. I love my students and I always provide constant SUPPORT and assistance. If we work together, you will speak in a fluent way and you will feel confident in your communication with others.
I wait for you!

1-on-1 lessons are perhaps the best way to improve speaking skills, and because of this many students use LanguaTalk to learn to speak Italian fluently. That said, some people have other, more specific goals. Let your tutor know what your goals are and they'll tailor the lessons to your personal needs. Most tutors can help with any of the following:
Most of the Italian tutors on our site are able to teach students of all levels. When you click on a tutor's profile you'll see if certain levels are not supported. For example, certain tutors cannot teach complete beginners.
Likewise, you can also see on the tutor's profile whether they're suitable for all ages. Lessons are sometimes taken via LanguaTalk to support school/college studies. Usually, the tutor will be able to customise the lessons to follow the material and topics covered in the student's exams. Note that as per our Terms & Conditions, students who are under 18 must get permission from a legal guardian before booking.
New to LanguaTalk? You'll have one credit for a free trial. Many, but not all, tutors offer trials for free. If they don't offer this, the price will be just 30 percent of their full lesson price, so you can still try a session at minimal cost. You can also take a trial session with another tutor if you have any issues with your first trial.
Trial sessions are 30 minutes. They allow you to assess whether the tutor is a good fit for you, and get a feel for learning online. The tutor will assess your level and aim to understand your needs and interests so that they can customise any lessons you decide to take. You'll be encouraged to speak in Italian as much as possible, but of course you can speak in English too! Book a trial today to see if taking Italian lessons on Zoom/Skype works well for you.
If, after your trial session, you don't feel that the tutor is quite right for you, you can book a trial with another tutor for just 30 percent of their full lesson price.
Lessons are taught 1-on-1 so that you receive your tutor’s full attention and can progress quickly. Each lesson is 55 minutes long and is taught via Skype or Zoom, allowing you to communicate with your tutor and share learning materials as if you were in the same room.
The tutors vary in terms of their teaching methods, resources, experience, and personalities. So we suggest you look at several profiles to choose the best tutor for you. Whichever tutor you pick, they'll aim to tailor the lessons to your individual needs.
The beauty of taking classes online is that you can learn anytime, anywhere. When you choose a tutor, just check their calendar to make sure that they have available times that fit your schedule. Some Italian tutors have limited availability due to teaching a lot of students.
We want students to have an exceptional learning experience on LanguaTalk, so we only accept the very best tutor applications. Though we consider qualifications and experience, we place equal value on communication skills, personality and reviews from previous students. Almost all of the tutors are native speakers of the language they teach, and they can speak English too.
Each tutor is unique - they have different backgrounds, strengths, teaching methods and personalities. So we suggest you browse several profiles to find the right tutor for you.
Our booking system is designed to be easy to use. You can see tutors' available slots in your local time zone. If you choose to book lessons with a tutor, you'll be able to buy them one at a time, or purchase in bulk with a volume discount. You can pay securely by card on our website.
You can manually add bookings to your personal calendar, or if you use Google calendar, you can add bookings automatically with our syncing feature. You'll also be able to receive email reminders to help ensure you don't forget to turn up.
You can reschedule or cancel lessons in a couple of clicks. Please note that this can be done up to 24 hours before the lesson time. We have this policy to be fair to tutors, who cannot replace lessons at the last minute and need some form of income protection.
Italian lessons via Zoom/Skype tend to be cheaper than face-to-face because the tutor doesn't need to travel. Online Italian tutors may cost anywhere from $7 to $30 per hour, but be aware that very cheap tutors on certain websites may lack experience. On LanguaTalk, Italian tutors typically charge between $10 and $25 per hour.
Of course, receiving Italian tutoring via Zoom or Skype is not the cheapest way to learn; you could learn via a free app instead. But if you're serious about learning, nothing beats 1-on-1 Italian lessons with a great teacher.
According to the Foreign Service Institute, if you already speak English, Italian is one of the easiest languages to learn. The exact amount of time it will take you to become fluent will depend on many factors, such as your current level, your knowledge of similar languages, your capacity to learn, how you study, and how intensively you study. Some students who take multiple Italian lessons on Zoom/Skype each week will be able to go from beginner to conversational fluency within a couple of months. Others will take longer. Combining 1-on-1 lessons with an online Italian tutor with regular self-study is an effective way to learn Italian fast.
Most tutors offer both Skype and Zoom as options for the lessons. If they only offer one of these, this will be stated on their profile. Both tools are free, easy to use and perfect for language learning. They allow you to do everything you would do in a physical classroom: speak, listen, read, write, and share learning materials. Your tutor will typically write corrections directly in the chat area so that you can later revise everything you’ve learnt.
Most Italian tutors using Skype/Zoom also use other technologies and resources to enhance the learning experience, for example Google Docs (for real-time collaboration), videos, and PowerPoint slides. If you're unable to take the Italian lessons via Zoom or Skype, please contact our support team and we’ll get in touch with the tutor you're interested in to see if they're able to use an alternative video technology, such as Google Meet.
Students sometimes feel unsure about learning online because they think it won't be as effective as learning face-to-face. But usually when they try it, they find that the experience is almost the same and they often build a strong relationship with their tutor.
Once you start a video call with your chosen Italian tutor on Zoom/Skype, you’ll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. They’ll usually also share learning resources with you (using Google Docs, YouTube etc.) and you’ll be able to collaborate in real-time.
There is no 'best way' to learn a language - it depends on many factors, such as your needs, level and budget. If you can't afford to take 1-on-1 Italian lessons on Zoom/Skype, you can use a free app like Duolingo to build your vocab. And to improve your listening skills, you can try watching TV and listening to podcasts in Italian. But to learn how to actually speak a language, you need to talk to a native speaker on a regular basis and receive accurate feedback so that you improve. If you want to make fast progress, it's best to take private lessons that are tailored to your personal needs by an experienced teacher.
