Walk & Learn in Rome 

Bespoken 1on1 private classes in the city center of Rome

What exactly is a Walk & Learn class?

I primarily teach my classes online and enjoy doing so. If you don’t live in Italy, I believe this is the most efficient way to learn and practice Italian. But I also live in the magical city of Rome and get to experience its many facets on a daily basis. So I decided to combine my expertise in the language teaching landscape with my insider knowledge of Rome and offer motivated Italian learners the opportunity to unleash Italian superpower in a real-life situation. 

You’ll walk around beautiful off-the-beaten-path central areas and chat in Italian with the help of a qualified language teacher.

About Me

  • My teaching is optimized for adult English native speakers
  • Aside from teaching, I create Italian language content for beginners and intermediate learners, such as this one (Le Avventure di Paul a Roma)
  • The walk and learn classes will be an educational experience for you. You will be asked to express your opinions or ask me questions about life in Italy and Rome, just like in a (informal!) classroom setting. I’m an enthusiastic urban explorer.
  • I know a lot about the city and its landmarks, but I won’t always be able to adequately respond if you want more in-depth information about monuments, art, history, and so on. After all, I’m a language teacher, not a tour guide.

About You

  • You’ve already studied Italian and have a conversational level (A2-C1). 
  • You’re interested in learning about Rome beyond the clichés. 
  • You understand that the class will be held in an informal setting. You agree to take one or two online classes with me before meeting in person. Those classes will help you warm up your Italian, get to know each other, and most importantly, help me get a sense of your level and interests so that I can tailor the in-person class to your needs.
  • You can attend the walk and learn class with your Italian-speaking friends or family if their level of Italian is comparable to yours.
