About the lesson
Hi all! My name is Francesca and I am Italian.
Do you want to learn or improve your level of Italian through online classes?
No problem, more than 200 students have studied with me and have learned while having fun. I started teaching at the age of 19 and I have more than 10 years of experience, both in Italy and abroad.
In January 2018 I started teaching classes on Skype. I work at different levels, and there is never a lack of conversation on different topics, readings, writing, dictations, grammar and games.
My classes are all in Italian (from day one) and I only use other languages to clarify doubts. My students value this aspect very much because they can listen to a native teacher and live the experience in 100% Italian.
I also teach Italian for travelers and business Italian over the phone.
In addition, I prepare students to obtain official linguistic certificates (CELI, PLIDA, CILS).
I always prepare personalized material. Personalized monitoring of students.
All levels: A1-C2

Perfect! Francesca is a passionate teacher and you can see it right away. Working with her is a pleasure and the results are there !
Perfect! Francesca is a great teacher. She is very sympatehtic and understands my limits and my difficulties without ever making me uncomfortable. She is also really charged and cheerful during the lessons.

Francesca is the best language teacher I have ever had, very structured, clear, pleasant, never leaves a word misunderstood, always on time, etc. It's been 1 month now, with 2 lessons a week, I'm learning a lot and we're continuing ;-) Grazie mille, Francesca!
Francesca is super professional, she is super prepared as a teacher and, in addition, she is very nice and cheerful: a luxury of a teacher. I recommend her 100%. Hugs, Francesca!
Francesca is an excellent teacher, always with new and fun materials and activities. Her class is very pleasant because she is always smiling, which makes you feel very close, despite the fact that it is virtual.
She is an AMAZING teacher !!!!!!!! You learn a lot and in a very didactic way. 100% recommendable.
Very good teacher, very dedicated. She puts good homework with pedagogical value. Highly recommended.
I have been fortunate to learn Italian with Francesca in an easy and simple way. She is native and her way of working is quite practical. Of course I recommend the way she teaches to learn a language.
I have been taking classes with Francesca for more than a year. I really enjoy learning with her, the classes are dynamic and personalized. I recommend it 100%!
I love and look forward to my lessons with Francesca! She is extremely patient and always greets me with a big smile and words of encouragement which I think is important with a language teacher, I would recommend her to anyone. Muchísimas gracias Francesca, que vaya bien!
What a party with Francesca: you don't even notice that you are being taught! It's all very intuitive and fun and 'suddenly' you have all new words!
Thank you Francesca for your enthusiasm and passion for your language! You are a great teacher and I appreciate your flexible and professional approach to our classes. Grazie mille!
Francesca is the best language teacher I´ve ever had (and I´ve had a few). She extremely flexible when it comes to our needs and wishes. We are a couple and she juggles that challenge perfectly. The best is no matter how our energy is before class, afterwards we are always happy and full of energy! Thank you so much, Francesca!
Francesca is an amazing teacher. Her classes are a lot of fun and at the same time I learn a lot. I can only recommend her.
It's been a lot of fun so far learning Italian from Francesca. The classes are flexible and tightly tailored to my needs, and I'm learning a whole lot. The best part is that Francesca manages to keep the energy levels up so that I'm always looking forward to the next class!
Fransceca is the best Spanish teacher that I've had in my life! And I've had a lot. Fransceca can answer whatever question you have, whether it's about grammar, pronunciation or sayings. Furthermore, Fransceca endeavours to teach you the most native way in which to say something. Her energy is very positive and makes the class very fun. You will never regret choosing her as your teacher! 150/100! Fransceca es la mejor profesora de Español que he tenido en mi vida! Y tenia muchas. Fransceca puede contestar a cualquier pregunta tienes sobre el idioma, ya sea sobre algo de la gramatica, sobre pronunciación o sobre refranes. Ademas, Fransceca asegura que aprenderás la manera mas nativa para decir algo. Su energia es muy positiva y hace la clase muy divertida. Nunca lo lamentarías si le eligieras para tu profesora!
Great teacher, who's helped me a lot and lets you pick what you want to focus on whether that's grammar or conversation. La mejor profesora en el mundo! Si quieres hacer conversacion o gramatica me ha ayudado mucho.
Francesca is an excellent teacher! She is incredibly patient and makes the complex things easy to understand. Her teaching style is structured and easy to follow. She directly understood the points I needed to work on and adapted the lessons weeks after weeks. I can definitely see the progress I have made and I could not have done it without her! It has been a pleasure to take lessons with her, and I highly recommend her!
The classes with Francesca are not only very good but also very joyful. She explains very well grammar related issues but at the same time tries to keep lessons fun and diverse. Francesca caters to your needs and Spanish level, either with book or just conversational. She is always very punctual for the lesson. I enjoy having lessons with her. She teaches with enthusiasm and joy.
I have been having private spanish lessons with Francesca for about 5 months now. She comes to teach at my home twice per week, and she is always on time to the minute. She is a fantastic teacher, very friendly, intelligent, patient and supportive. Moreover, she is very professional and knowledgeable in spanish linguistics, making her able to explain grammatical rules in simple and easy terms, something that native speaking spanish teachers may have problems with. She is also always well prepared ahead our lessens and she is perfectly organized. Moreover, Francesca is good at discovering the areas where need to work more and what pace is best for you. She helped me to start speaking better spanish within few weeks, more than I did with my other teachers in several months time. She is an awesome teacher that everybody should be happy working with! Thanks for your great help, Francesca!!
Dear Francesca, thank you for being my Italian teacher. I had a lot of fun with you! Silvia
