Ciao! My name is Federica and I am a teacher from Florence, a city of arts, the cradle of Renaissance and the Italian language. I have 9 years of experience in sharing our beautiful language and culture with students from all over the world!
I am a teacher but also a traveler and a language learner. I have lived and traveled in many countries and speak English, Russian, French, Spanish, and a bit of Hindy and Swahili. I have a background in classical studies, a University degree in education and later I specialized in teaching Italian as a foreign language My lessons are professionally structured.
The format of the lessons and the learning content that I will provide is individually tailored to the student’s language level and learning needs. With me, you can learn Italian from the very basics to fluency, practice conversation, and prepare for all certification exams (CELI, CILS, B1 for citizenship). During the class I will share a Google Doc that we will use as an interactive whiteboard, there I will paste screenshots of different activities, extracted from modern textbooks or edited by me. I will also share audio files and videos.
“To learn a language is to have one more window to look at the world “I look forward to being the one who helps you open this window! If you think I could be the right teacher for you, don’t hesitate and book a trial lesson with me. A presto!See Reviews From Students
My name is Margherita, I am from Milan, I am living in Tenerife now and I have been an Italian teacher for 7 years.
My motto is: if you are a polyglot, you can do anything!
I personally speak fluently both Spanish and English as I have worked and lived in Ireland, Australia and Bolivia, before moving to the Canarian Islands.
What do I offer to my students?
- conversation classes on any subject at any level (from 0 to C1)
- professionalism and fun (how can you learn if you are bored?)
- material adapted to your needs
- links on which keep practicing online
- the opportunity to learn Italian for pleasure, tourism or work
- fluency in Italian and in pronunciation
- comparison with English to understand the differences between the 2 languages
- a humanistic-affective approach which is student-centred
- if you want, lessons with other people
- and why not? if you want, even a friend
I graduated in Linguistic and Cultural Mediation in Milan in 2013 and afterwards I achieved the Master Itals aimed at teaching the Italian language and culture to foreigners.
I have taught Italian for four years in La Paz, Bolivia by the SOCIETà DANTE ALIGHIERI, giving classes to adults and university students, while I have taught to kids and adolescents by the Colegio Italo-Boliviano of the same city.
I returned to Italy in 2019 and I was given the opportunity to teach Italian through the Berlitz school by the Leonardo Elicotteri Company, addressing to English managers and engineers.
As regards my teaching method, the student is the centre of the learning process.
Therefore I customize my lessons considering your interests and the topics you want to talk about using different materials like videos, songs, online activities, along with written texts.
This way lessons are based especially on CONVERSATION as I think that each language's goal is to communicate.
So let's start with a talk on the trial lesson to know each other and see which goals you want to reach and by when, then together we choose the path to follow, considering your needs.See Reviews From Students
I am Italian but I did my university in Scotland where I studied BA Economics. I love teaching in general and I love the contact with people: I was Italian tutor for international students, sports coach, and environmental projects assistant. I have a high sense of empathy and very good communication skills as well as listening skills. My teaching method is based on listening the needs and peculiarities of each student: some might want to focus on conversation, some on grammar, on a mix of everything, or on the preparation of a specific exam. I try to make every lesson fun and enjoyable. On top of the academic resources that I use, there are always more "informal" ones, including Italian songs, TV shows, recipes, etc... which will give you a sense of the Italian culture as well.See Reviews From Students
With over a decade of experience, I've had the pleasure of teaching Italian to passionate learners from all around the world. From Tokyo to Moscow, to my time at the prestigious "Istituto Venezia" in enchanting Venice, I've refined my expertise in delivering exceptional Italian classes for both beginners and advanced learners.
My teaching approach revolves around fostering communication and immersing you in real-life situations. We won't simply focus on memorizing words; instead, we'll dive into authentic conversations and help you conquer the question of "what do I say in this situation?"
If you're starting from scratch, fret not! My teaching approach ensures that you won't be thrown into speaking Italian right away. Instead, we'll embark on a journey where you'll gradually build a solid foundation in the language, developing your listening and reading skills.
In my lessons, I prioritize creating a grammar-light environment while emphasizing immersion and conversation. However, I recognize the challenges posed by certain grammatical concepts. Therefore, I'm ready to switch to English whenever needed, offering clear explanations for complex grammar topics.
But that's not all: as a pronunciation coach, I hold the key to helping you shed your mother-tongue accent and embrace the melodic sounds of Italian. By mastering the subtle nuances of Italian intonation and pronunciation, we'll unlock the full potential of your language skills.
Join me on this awesome language-learning adventure! Together, we'll make Italian an integral part of your life, revealing the richness of its culture and the joy of connecting with its people.See Reviews From Students
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!See Reviews From Students
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. In 2021 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!See Reviews From Students
Hello! I'm Melissa, I live in Milan and I have a Bachelor Degree in "Foreign Languages and Literatures". I am also an ENG-ITA translator specialized in video game.I'm also passionate about books, music, movies and TV series, so I'll always have something to recommend you in Italian!
For years I have tutored high school students and I have taught Italian to Arabic-speaking children as a volunteer. I currently teach group and individual Italian lessons for adults and these lessons are mainly based on conversation. I have also taught students interested in passing university Italian language tests, Italian certifications such as the CELI and foreign exams with Italian as a subject such as the LEAVING CERT.
My lessons are tailored to the student's needs and I always find it helpful to include elements of Italian culture to better engage the student. I can share different kind of material(grammar, listening, reading). I first of all have experience as a student because I have been studying foreign languages since I was a child. I know what are the difficulties that a student can encounter and what can be the most effective methods for learning.
I am a native Italian teacher specialized in tutoring Italian for beginners, intermediate and advanced learners. I have been working since 2016 for several agencies and for the Foreign & Commonwealth Office in London teaching Italian from scratch. I am also a CILS tutor and exam administrator.
I hold a Bachelor in Linguistics and Italian as a second language and also worked for the publishing of an Italian Collocations Dictionary for Italian learners.
My objective is to keep students challenged but not overwhelmed. I also like to keep lessons engaging, fun and fresh. My students say I am patient and friendly: I do think it is very important to feel safe and supported when learning a new language. So if you want to immerse yourself in the Italian culture and language but find it hard to attend a scheduled group class, or if you want to focus on specific topics or aspects and get faster progress through individual lessons, contact me to get the most suitable 1-to-1 plan for you.
*Please note: I have a Zoom Pro plan. Zoom is in my opinion the best tool for online lessons, and my paid account allows all features, with no time limit on calls. Feel free to select Zoom as your preferred tool when booking: I am the host so you do not have to pay anything to join my meeting.See Reviews From Students
Hi everyone, I am Anna and I am a professional Italian teacher for foreigners. I come from Venice where I live and work. I can help you in the study of modern Italian as it is really spoken nowadays. I am a bilingual Italian and English teacher and a freelance translator at Ca' Foscari University in Venice. I completed the ITALS Master's degree for teaching Italian language and culture to foreigners. My field of specialization and current research is Psycholinguistics and Neurolinguistics to better understand what happens in our brains and minds when we study a foreign language and what emotions are involved. I specialize in teaching adults and seniors and am currently studying in a Psychology course at Yale University. I also have a CEDILS certification to teach Italian culture abroad. I have been teaching Italian and English since 2004. I work with students from diverse backgrounds and my classes are for anyone who wants to improve and deepen communication, grammar, vocabulary and reading.
I always pay attention to your needs no matter what your level is. We will work on your confidence because we are all students and I know how difficult it is when you can't find the words to express what you are thinking and feeling. My lessons are all customizable because I think every student is different and has their own personal way of learning. I will be so happy to work with you and help you reach your goals.
I am also a podcaster, the host of "Una Storia ItaliAnna," a podcast channel you can find here on LanguaTalk at the podcast page. You can also visit my YouTube channel and buy my books on Amazon to practice the Italian language.
When I am not teaching, I travel. I lived in London for a while and also in Liverpool while I was writing my dissertation. I also speak Spanish, so I am also a language student and understand very well how difficult it is to study a language.
So what are you waiting for? Book a trial lesson and we'll figure out together how I can help you!See Reviews From Students
Ciao, I am Giulia and I am from Italy🇮🇹
I have travelled a lot in Europe in the last few years and this has allowed me to meet people from all over the world.

I know how difficult it is to learn a new language and feel comfortable when using it. I want to be able to help you to speak Italian fluently, without fears!☺️
Travelling helped me to improve my English and I had the opportunity to help my new friends to learn Italian through simple conversations, learning a new word every day, doing exercises and other activities.
I can teach you my culture, my cuisine or anything else you want to know about Italy!🍕🍝🍷
No matter what level,
No matter which goals you want to achieve, I will help you learn or improve your Italian through customized lessons, projects and exercises. We will find the best study method for you!

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!See Reviews From Students
Ciao! 👋 I'm Francesca, I live in the North of Italy and I'm in love with my language!
I've been teaching Italian both online and offline since 2020, when I obtained my CEDILS certification.
Here's a summary of my teaching style and core beliefs:
1) The focus of my classes is helping you to effectively EXCHANGE INFORMATION in Italian
2) I believe that the STUDENT should be at the CENTER of the course and should be constantly motivated by the teacher
3) Grammar to me is like a scavenger hunt, and the quest for REGULARITIES rather than rules in language an exciting one, where we both learn something!
4) I believe MOTIVATION is the basis of a successful language learning path, this is why I'm constantly encouraging my students to strive for greatness!
5) Finally, I believe creating a comfortable & FUN environment in the class is also key to SUCCESS
What are you waiting for?? Book a class with me to get a taste of my teaching style!
See you soon 😊See Reviews From Students
Hi! It’s Michela from Italy. If you want to learn Italian from scratch or just improve your general competence, widen your vocabulary in a specific field or focus on exam preparation (e.g. CILS) in a friendly and engaging environment, I’ll be more than happy to guide you in becoming a more confident, proficient and autonomous learner and speaker.
Being a language learner myself I find it easy to put myself in my students’ shoes in order to constantly tailor my teaching to their needs.
TEACHING QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE
I've been working as a licensed teacher of English as a foreign language in Italian Secondary Education for several years (permanent position).
I use a variety of teaching methods, materials, activities and tools. In particular, I try to take advantage of audio and video materials and love experimenting with new approaches and technologies. I also strongly believe that teaching vocabulary and grammar in context based on topics relevant to my students plays a crucial role in fostering language development. Finally, my students’ questions and feedback are always of great value to me.
Thank you for checking out my profile. If you book a trial session with me, we’ll see together how I can help you shape your learning journey to achieve your goals.See Reviews From Students

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 students have other, more specific goals. Tell your tutor what your goals are and they'll tailor the lessons to your needs. Most tutors can help with any of the following:
New to LanguaTalk? You'll have one credit for a free trial. Most tutors offer a trial for free. If they do not, they’ll offer a trial session at a discount compared to their usual hourly rate.
Trial sessions last 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!
After your session, if you feel that the tutor isn’t quite right for you, you can simply book a trial with someone else.
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. Online Italian lessons are sometimes taken 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. Please note that as per our Terms & Conditions, students who are under 18 must get permission from a legal guardian before booking.
Lessons are taught 1-on-1 so that you receive your tutor’s full attention and can make fast progress. Communicating via video call, you’ll be able to talk to your tutor and share learning materials as if you were in the same room.
The tutors vary in terms of their teaching methods, resources, experiences, and personalities. So we suggest you look at several profiles to choose the best tutor for you. Whichever Italian tutor you pick, they'll aim to tailor the lessons to your individual needs.
The vast majority of students take 55-minute lessons. But some tutors also provide the option of 30-minute lessons. If they do, you’ll see this noted on their profile (below their pricing and above the ‘Buy Lessons’ button).
55-minute lessons are recommended for most students. In general, we only suggest considering 30-minute lessons if they’re for your child, or you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice.
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 tutors are native speakers of the language they teach, and we require that they can speak English too.
Each tutor is different - they have different backgrounds, strengths, teaching methods and personalities. So we suggest you browse several profiles to find the right Italian tutor for you.
The beauty of taking lessons online is that you can learn anytime, anywhere. To see tutors who are likely to fit your weekly schedule, use the availability filter at the top. Then when you see a tutor you like, check their profile calendar to make sure their time slots work for you. Some tutors have limited availability as they already have lots of students.
Our booking system is designed to be incredibly easy to use. You can see tutors' available hours in your local time zone. If you choose to book lessons with a tutor, you'll be able to purchase them one at a time, or buy 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. Note that this can only be done up to 24 hours before the lesson time. This rule is required to protect tutors, who lose income when lessons are cancelled at the last minute.
Sometimes students feel uncertain about learning Italian online because they think it’ll be totally different to 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 online, 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.
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 will be able to go from beginner to conversational fluency within a couple of months through intensive study. 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.
If you live in the US or Europe, face-to-face Italian lessons may cost anywhere between $20 and $60 (USD) per hour. Online tutoring tends to be cheaper than face-to-face because the tutor doesn't need to travel to you. An online Italian tutor could cost anywhere from $13 to $50 per hour, but be aware that very cheap tutors may lack experience. On LanguaTalk, Italian tutors typically charge between $14 and $40 per hour.
Of course, learning 1-on-1 with an experienced Italian tutor 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.
There is no 'best way' to learn a language - it depends on your needs, level and budget. If you can't afford to take lessons, you can use a free app such as Duolingo to build your vocabulary. And to improve your listening skills, you can watch TV and listen 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 1-on-1 lessons that are tailored to your needs by an experienced online Italian teacher.Arabic tutors | Chinese tutors | Dutch tutors | English tutors | French tutors | German tutors | Greek tutors | Japanese tutors | Korean tutors | Portuguese tutors | Romanian tutors | Russian tutors | Spanish tutors | Swedish tutors | Thai tutors
