Why join us?

  • I have {{ yearsOfExperience }} years of experience in teaching Italian to foreigners. You can read reviews about the courses here.
  • All the courses have been designed by myself; I use my own teaching method matured through years of experience. The lessons and topics are developed based on students' needs and interests.
  • The lessons also contain information about the Italian culture and focus on the speaking component, encouraging students to speak from the very first lesson.
  • You will gain access to all the lesson materials used in class, including audio and video files.
  • I teach in small groups, which enables each student to get enough support during each lesson.
  • We hold conversation clubs in a relaxed atmosphere in Ponte Vecchio restaurant every Friday. These are not compulsory, but are there for those who wish to practice their speaking skills.


Farida’s devotion and genuine enthusiasm has ensured that every class embraces the true atmosphere and culture of Italy. I would not hesitate a moment in recommending anyone to Farida’s classes. Philippo

I feel so fortunate to have found Farida as a teacher and am so grateful she has made learning Italian such a truly enjoyable challenge. Her love of the Italian language is infectious.

Farida’s approach is refreshingly different from many teachers. The teaching materials are all her own and very inventive. She has an uncanny knack of enabling even the most shy to become more Italian. Richard

This course is a step change. The course is systematic and well-organised giving me an opportunity to upgrade my Italian in a pleasant atmosphere.

Farida makes the lessons huge fun – her classes often rock with laughter!
