"Learning always keeps the brain active and stimulated and research has shown that learning either a language or a musical instrument can actually slow down the onset of age related diseases like Alzheimer's. Isn't that fantastic? It also exercises and improves your mathematical abilities"
So, whether you want to learn conversational English or Italian or extend yourself with reading and writing as well, lessons with me will be a fun, lively and inspiring journey.
Planning a trip to Italy, to work, maybe just a holiday or maybe that bucket dream to live a while in Tuscany or Naples - whatever takes you there ... now is the time to learn, so that you can truly immerse yourself in all the wonders Italy has to offer.
"Dai vi chiama l'italia"
Let's face it English is everywhere but it can be tough - even for English speakers. There is no better way to learn than one on one, or small group English lessons with a fluent and qualified tutor. No one will make it easier.
