My name is Francesca, I am Italian and I grew up in a small town close to Genoa on the Ligurian Riviera. Now I live in Houston. I have a master degree in History of Art, but I also love languages and as soon as I moved to the United States, I started teaching Italian. I have been teaching Italian for almost 5 years and I love it, because it gives me the opportunity to meet people from all over the world.
I teach to students of all levels: beginners, intermediate and advanced. My youngest student is 3 years old and my oldest one is 80 years old. I customize each lesson, following your needs. Whether you want to learn Italian for fun, travel or for work I can help you, by teaching this wonderful language in a stimulating way doing interactive activities, listening, watching videos, playing games and reading books and texts. We can focus on conversation or grammar or both of them, as you wish.
I think that teaching is a wonderful human and cultural exchange and I am looking forward to meet you!
Grazie e a presto!
Pleased to meet you! I am Grazia and I have been teaching Italian to foreigners for more than ten years! I have a great passion for this job and I am always very happy to meet new students and get in touch with their world! My method is based first of all on listening and understanding the needs and attitudes of each student, and in this way I try to offer lessons that are... 'tailor-made'! I believe that grammar is important, but I also always give a lot of space to conversation, communication and fun. The tools I use for my lessons vary greatly: from grammar review sheets to poems, songs, videos... anything that I find stimulating can become a very good working tool! Since obtaining the DITALS certificate to teach Italian to foreigners, I have taught both in Italy and abroad, to students of all ages and in both individual and group lessons. One aspect of this work that I find very important (and really valuable!) is building a relationship with the students.
After all, teaching allows me to bring together my two greatest passions: the Italian language and... people, from all over the world.
See you soon then... I look forward to meeting you!
Ciao! Come stai?
Are you interested in conversational classes to improve your fluency and your self-confidence when you speak Italian?
I can guide you with some fun questions through different topics (art, nature, food, movies, traveling) in a very natural setting.
Or maybe you want to improve your language skills (reading, listening, writing, speaking) with a more structured lesson?
We can use different materials to observe Italian in an authentic context and learn new grammar rules, words and expressions.
What if you want to prepare for a language certificate?
I am a certified CELI examiner, and I can help you prepare for CELI, CILS, or PLIDA, thanks to useful tips and a variety of materials.
Other needs or interests? Just write me! Our lessons can be highly flexible.
Some words about me:
I was born in a small village in Northern Italy, but I have been living in Berlin since 2015.
I have a true passion for languages and cultures, and I am grateful to be able to experience them through my work every day.
I have been teaching Italian online since 2019. I have a degree in Italian literature and language teaching. I also have a certificate to teach Italian to adults (DITALS I).
I love nature, kayaking, walking, and cycling. When I am not outside, I like to cook, read a good novel or watch a movie.
I have a dog and a lot of plants!
Hi everyone, my name is Valerio, and I'm a native Italian speaker born and raised in Turin, Italy. If you are looking for someone friendly and fun and at the same time, patient, precise, and methodical I could be a good choice! I can make you improve with any Italian skill and I will provide you with wide and comprehensive reports at the end of each lesson.
I love philosophy, meditation, and everything related to self-development. I also enjoy watching movies, learning languages, and spending time with my friends.
Feel free to book a trial lesson and contact me with any questions you may have. See you soon! :)
I have been teaching online for two years, with about 1700 lessons with about 70 students.
I'm patient and friendly and this will help you talk: the primary and most important reason to take this type of class is to find an opportunity to practice: the more you speak, the more mistakes I can find and the more new expressions and pronunciation tips can be taught.
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!
Hi, I'm Cristina from Italy!
I studied Foreign languages and Linguistics and I'm here to help you learn and discover the beauties of the Italian language. My lessons are mainly focused on grammar, vocabulary, conversation 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 (I have a standard pronunciation so you can easily learn the standard variety of Italian) : 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!
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 Selene and I teach Italian to adults at all levels. My aim is to deliver lessons that are not boring, useful to what you want to achieve and adaptable to your learning style. I have experience teaching students from all over the world, from beginners to more advanced students. I create my lessons with the help of books, images, authentic material, my personal experiences and a bit of sense of humour.
Italian is a language full of history and culture. I believe it is almost impossible to learn Italian without learning its culture and traditions. Cultural activities, recipes and travel tips are my signature lessons.
I developed my methods during the years and I'm able to create a friendly environment in which the students can learn without any pressure. If this sounds like the way you want to learn, please do not hesitate to contact me !
Do you love Italy, good food, art, culture and the Italian language?
Are you planning a trip to Italy and have little time to learn the basics? Or maybe you just want to learn a wonderful new language?
If you want to improve your Italian, feel more confident speaking or start from zero and be able to start speaking in a short time, you are on the right profile!
I know the difficulties of learning and practicing a foreign language and I will use all my experience and the ability to offer you lessons perfectly adapted to your level and your goals.
For our lessons, we will make an individual program that will allow you to progress quickly, I will provide you with the best study materials (books, pdf, audio, video, reading, grammar ...), I will give you homework and activities (if you have time) and we will use many tools to enhance the learning experience.
Together we can face each lesson in a dynamic and fun way, learning something new from the Italian language but also from the culture, improving your vocabulary, grammar and above all your ability to communicate ...
I can also help you prepare for a CILS, CELI or citizenship exam, with the right materials and methods to improve your weaknesses and get ready for test day.
I'm waiting for you for our first conversation, to start a beautiful learning journey together!
📌 Ciao, come stai? - Hi, how are you?

Hello everyone! My name is Francesca and I come from Italy. Since I moved to Australia, in the past 4 years I tutored many people of different ages and levels who had different goals in learning the language, such as high school students preparing for ATAR exams, Universities students who specialised in Italian studies, and also adults who never practised Italian before and wanted to travel there.
My method is created around the student's needs, goals and, most of all, his unique way of learning. I have had great satisfactions in my experience seeing how this method made my students grow so much. I have created it by looking at my personal experience: as I was required to learn a new language without any academical background, I have studied the ways our brain learns new skills in different stages of life and in different conditions, and thanks to that I managed to learn English, Spanish and (Brazilian) Portuguese in just three years, at such a level that today they all are part of my personal and professional life.
It's never too late to learn a language, and it doesn't require a special talent or rigorous study. In the same way you learned to communicate as a small kid, the uniqueness of your mind will create your own way of learning a new way of communicating. Together we will find this pathway, and I will follow you also outside of the class to make sure you keep engaged (at your desired pace and intensity): for me the keys of learning are constancy and variety of stimulus you receive. Can't wait to start this journey with 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.
Ciao a tutti! Mi chiamo Francesco.
I am an Italian teacher, a learning specialist, and a screenwriter. I was born and raised in the majesty of Rome, and I love teaching Italian and sharing my culture.
Forget the old boring lessons with tons of grammar and no fun; I use e-learning tools and many 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 become fluent in Italian and sound like a local. My classes are a perfect blend of grammar, conversation, reading and comprehension, and, last but not least, writing. In addition, I will provide you with everything you need so you don't have to spend extra money on books.
I prepare students to obtain the language certifications Celi, Cils, and Plida.
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, yoga, 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!
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!
Ciao a tutti! I'm Deborah and I'm an Italian tutor. I graduated cum laude in 2021 and I've got 3 years of experience in tutoring. Last year I worked as private tutor in France and Portugal.
I love to keep up to date on language teaching to give students the best experience. Recently I wrote an article about teaching Italian to foreign students through a very innovative method: the silent book.
My philosophy is: learn a language, have fun!
If you're looking for language lessons specifically tailored to your needs, you're in the right place! My lessons are different according to age, need, interests, your mother tongue, your language level. Having your own path of study specifically drawn for you means studying with no worries about mistakes, with fun, and with the certainty of obtaining the desired results!
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!
I have a degree in Literature and I'm certified to teach Italian to foreigners. I've been teaching for 3 years non-stop and I've experimented with many methods of teaching. I consider myself a perennial student. I speak English, Spanish, I can translate Latin and I love history. I use a communicative approach but I deem grammar essential, that's why I prefer to alternate exercises, reading and creative games. In my free time, I write, I watch movies and I practice sport. I also enjoy playing my guitar and playing chess.
I'm Italian and I live near Turin in the North West of Italy. I'm a certified and qualified teacher with many years of experience teaching Italian; I've a master degree in Foreign Languages and Italian literature and I taught students of all levels and ages, coming from different countries and backgrounds.
I've been teaching online and face to face.
My tutoring services include: speaking, reading, writing and listening. We will work on determining what ability level you are in and what your goals are. From there we will branch out and focus on long term success. I take care to make classes that are designed to suit your learning needs, that provide measurable progress, that focus on giving you thorough practice through fun and realistic activities and that are enjoyable experiences.
I'm well aware how hard It can be speaking fluently so I can tailor personalized lesson plans to suit particolar needs.
I can help learners with academic and business Italian, as well as learning Italian for other professional or work contexts. ( CILS, CELI, DILS) And I'm really happy to teach people who are learning as a hobby or for holidays. I like using different materials and resources like videos, interesting articles, songs and discussing our interest and hobbies. I have different hobbies: I like cooking, hiking, travelling...
So, let's start your journey now, join my course today!
I look forward to hearing from you soon
Ciao! My name is Mauro, I am native Italian from Calabria! I studied International Relations at Bologna University, then I moved to Padua, for a PhD in History of Political Thought. I currently live in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I love running, Mozart, tango (I'm trying to improve my dancing abilities...), cook, and culture.
I am a very passionate teacher, I love to share my language and my knowledge about Italy, and its culture, films, music, literature, arts, food!!! I firmly believe that learning is based on trust between teacher and student, and the first objective of my classes is to individuate student's objectives and preferences.
My teaching methodology is integrated: I think that it is important to work on all of linguistic abilities: oral and writing comprehension and production. I also think that lessons must be as much as fun as possible, and I use a lot of authentic material: songs, films, cooking recipes, newspapers, advertising and so on...

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.

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.
