I always look forward to going to my Italian class. Raffaella combines a number of teaching methods, including planned conversation topics, books, films, and listening and grammar exercises. These mean that you not only learn but learning is interesting and fun. When studying anything, it is not enough for the teacher just to know the subject – they must also know how to teach it. Raffaella is a natural teacher and has the knack of breaking down the language into digestible chunks – making it seem easy. Of course, it also makes an enormous difference to learn Italian from someone who is actually Italian! I highly recommend Raffaella – whether you just want to learn a bit of Italian before going on holiday (which is how I started, 4 years ago!), need some extra tuition for an exam, or want to go the whole hog and become fluent in the language.
