What does accountability mean for us?
Most Italian courses, no matter if they happen online or in-person, focus on having the learners consuming information on the spot without creating a structure to help them learn Italian outside of the class.
We do it differently. Because we have been language learners too and we know that that’s not the most efficient approach.
We base our teaching approach on the concept that in-person lessons shall give valuable guidance and feedback to the students. Still, real learning happens outside of the class when you experience and play with the language independently.
In all our Italian online classes and programs, we create a structure to help you flirt with the language both after and before the lesson.
We also always correct your homework, polish your mistakes, and give you feedback that will enable you to advance constantly. All this, without feeling lost or overwhelmed along the way. That’s what we call accountability.
We hold you accountable for completing all tasks required to advance fast and smart.
We don’t like consuming information without mastering it.
We love giving you a strategy and framework that will make you a stellar Italian speaker.

Here is what learners from all aver the world say about me
I no longer stress out (as much) about making a grammar mistake. Serena turns my mistakes into dynamic learning opportunities by coaching me during our conversations without interrupting them. Her preparation for our conversations is apparent when she seems to have anticipated every misstep I could possibly make. Serena is a language coach.
Serena doesn’t only teach Italian in a most professional way but she also knows how to trigger one’s deepest passions for this incredible, colourful and flowery language.
Lessons with Serena are not only a real pleasure from beginning to end, but after only three I can already feel that my spoken Italian has improved under her guidance.
