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!

Lessons with Franco are so much fun. I appreciate how he knows what I don't know before I even ask and I love the "light bulb moments" of clarity on new concepts because of his explanations. Topics and conversation are consistently at a speed that my brain can translate so I feel successful as a language learner.

After a number of lessons with Franco I successfully traveled to Italy and was able to communicate my basic needs with native speakers. Now one month later I am excited and know that regular practice is vital to stay in the "flow" of speaking and progressing on my language journey for my next trip to Italy. Thank you Franco for our "reintroduction" lesson today!! I can't wait for our upcoming scheduled lessons.

Francesco is such a great teacher - friendly, encouraging and with exactly the right amount of correction! We come away from every lesson feeling that we have learnt a little more, and with a desire to keep on improving so that Francesco will be proud of us!

Francesco is a very good teacher, and his approach to teaching Italian is simple: he speaks to you in Italian, and with a combination of using familiar situations, repetition and homework, you can't fail to learn. He wants you to get used to hearing Italian, whilst applying what you're learning as much as possible, and if you put in the work you soon see results. Absolutely would recommend to anyone who is serious about learning Italian!
