My name is Enzo and I am a professional Italian teacher from Catania, Sicily. In the past, from 2014 onward, I taught private Italian classes in foreign countries, where I had moved abroad to participate in volunteer work. In my free time I volunteer as a full time teacher as part of a worldwide educational program. I also work as an instructor of group classes on public speaking and presentations, which has given me great experience in this field.
I am happy to help students of all ages! I enjoy teaching vocabulary, pronunciation and conversational Italian to my students. I believe that learning Italian should be a fun process. You can perfect your pronunciation and fluency without pressure in my classes. I'm also fluent in German, Spanish, and English, so if you are a new, beginner-level student there should be no problem communicating.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become fluent in Italian!

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!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
Do you want to improve your speaking skills in an interesting and fun way? Try a Conversation class with me! (Conversation class only)
Hello, I'm Paolo, and I was born and raised in Sardinia, Italy, which is one of the largest and most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean Sea.
I don't live in Italy anymore, as I now travel the world full-time, seeing new places, experiencing new cultures, and learning new languages.
I started working as an online tutor in 2015, and have taught for over 2,000 hours. I offer conversation sessions, so if you have at least an intermediate level of Italian and want to practice with a native tutor, I'm the person you're looking for!
Our sessions will be informal, interesting, and fun! You can practice by speaking in Italian, and I'll give you suggestions and corrections on your pronunciation.
All of our conversation sessions will be exclusively in Italian. Based on your preferences and needs, we'll choose discussion topics, such as travel, food, traditions, and international and Italian news. We can also do reading activities to improve your pronunciation, vocabulary, and comprehension.
Conversation sessions do not involve teaching grammar. If you have any questions, we can discuss them during your trial session. Ciao, a presto!
Would you like to learn Italian from scratch or to become more fluent? I can help you reach your goal! I offer different resources, a friendly and professional atmosphere as well as constant support so you will have the chance to speak a lot from day one. I will integrate culture and traditions into my lessons to keep you motivated. I will provide you with all the necessary abilities to become independent in your language exploration. Give yourself the chance to achieve your dream, book a lesson!
My name is Valeria and I am a professional Italian Teacher. I hold a CEDILS certificate to teach Italian to foreigners, a Ph.D in Asian Studies and I have 10 years of teaching experience at Chinese Universities as well as one to one tutoring in the UK. I have specialised in teaching to Chinese speakers who wish to study in Italy, to European professionals who work for Italian companies, and to retirees passionate about culture and travels.
I adapt my lesson according to your interests and needs. In every lesson you will find something interesting and stimulating. I teach general, academic and business Italian. I can also help you prepare for language exams. My communicative approach allows the students to speak without inhibitions. I use authentic materials which reflect different aspects of everyday life. I usually start with a written text, a video, or an audio recording, then I focus on vocabulary and grammatical analysis. Finally, with a role play you will be asked to “act” in a simulated situation according to the topic just studied. You will receive feedback and support after each lesson.See Reviews From Students
Hi! thanks for visiting my page! I am a professional English and Italian language teacher with over 6 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.

About me — My name’s Filippo. I’m a native speaker of Italian and live in Rome. I hold the DITALS I certificate, i.e., the license for the Teaching of Italian as a Foreign Language issued by the University for Foreigners of Siena. I can also speak English and am very fond of British English phonology. I have two degrees, one in philosophy and the other in religious studies, and taught in secondary schools in Rome for 21 years. I mainly speak standard Italian or, as linguists would say, “Tuscan Italian as spoken by Roman citizens”, i.e., the Italian language as historically spoken in Florence, without its peculiar local features.
My lessons (a broad overview) — If you’re already attending an Italian language course or are a self-taught student, I'll be your go-to person for any further explanations and corrections, as complement to your personal journey to learning Italian. I can also provide topic-focused speaking classes on topics of your choice or mutual agreement, as well as offering help for exams preparation for language certificates of all levels (A1 – C2). If, on the contrary, you're looking for more structured classes as part of a broader and comprehensive Italian language course, I'll be very happy to guide you and provide you with all the necessary relevant materials.
My topic-focused speaking classes (a specific example) — At latest one day before class, I'll send you a list of key words and expressions that will help you prepare for the topic of conversation. We’ll always start our lessons by describing, analyzing and contrasting visual inputs (images and photos) in order to develop your communication skills. We will also look at one or two texts on the topic in order to enrich the specific vocabulary in use and the conversation itself. Infographics, as well as quotes from some personalities who have expressed their view on the topic, are also integral parts of the lessons. During the conversation I'll assess your oral production (pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar) and you'll receive my feedback to help you progress in this area.See Reviews From Students
I am Ilaria, and I am a native Italian teacher. I have been teaching Italian for several years now, and I love my job.
I am a full-time Italian teacher, and I am building my entire career around the Italian language. I am also a blogger and a podcaster.
In the past, I have attended German and Spanish courses. But I am still a language student, in fact, I keep taking English classes, so I know how difficult and frustrating can be to learn a foreign language for my students.
My teaching method is focused on the students. During the first lesson, I ask them why they want to learn Italian and the goals they want to achieve. I am a supportive person, and I will constantly be there to guide you during the challenge of learning a foreign language!
With beginners, we will start learning grammar, but I will try to let them speak from the first lesson, helping them to create their first sentences.
Once the level advances, the part of the conversation will become gradually longer, but obviously, we will keep adding grammar information.
With students with a higher level, I will be more flexible and, the work to do will be decided together. Some of them prefer to have an informal lesson, based on conversation. Others prefer to have a more structured class, with readings and exercises.See Reviews From Students

During the lesson, you will have the opportunity to speak, listen, and interact with your tutor in real-time. Your tutor may also provide you with additional materials, such as audio recordings or written exercises, to help you practice and consolidate your learning.

Some tutors on LanguaTalk may offer local lessons, but most only provide online lessons as it is more convenient and allows them to work from home. In addition, many tutors do not teach Italian in Sydney as they live elsewhere in the world. If you book a lesson with a tutor, you should assume that it will be online unless the tutor specifically states that they offer in-person lessons in Sydney.
There are several options for learning Italian in Sydney, whether you live in the city center or the suburbs. You can use an app or software program to learn basic vocabulary and grammar. You can also join group lessons with Italian tutors in Sydney if you prefer a social learning experience. Alternatively, you can take one-on-one lessons with a private tutor, which is more expensive but may be the most effective option if you have a good tutor. Learning online may make private tutors a more affordable choice. Prices vary based on the tutor, but are generally cheaper than in-person lessons in Sydney.
If you prefer not to learn online with tutor, LanguaTalk may not be the right choice for you. Instead, you can search for tutor, we recommend giving online learning a try as it is often as good as in-person learning and allows you to access better tutors at a lower cost. You can also book a free trial session to see if it is right for you.
Our research indicates that the average cost for private Italian lessons in Sydney is between $25-$35 per hour. Online tutors do not need to travel to you and often live in countries with a lower cost of living, so the hourly cost is generally lower.
Sometimes students tell us that they're not sure about learning Italian online because they think it’ll be completely 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 solid relationship with their tutor.
Once you start a video call with your chosen tutor, you’ll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. The tutor will typically also share learning resources with you (newspaper articles, YouTube, etc.) and you’ll be able to collaborate in real-time using a tool like Google Docs or Dropbox Paper.
