Learn ITALIAN ONLINE from a NATIVE SPEAKER ITALIAN INTERPRETER! Graduated in Languages and experienced in tutoring!

Methodology

During my classes, I try to make learning fun and not heavy. I love working with video, texts, stories, songs and not only rules! I love to talk and teach everyday language uses.
I want to teach my language but also my culture (and there's a lot of it!) so I often talk about it too.

Super tutor

Erika is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!

Background

I am a 32 years old energetic girl! I've studied languages since secondary school and words are my greatest passion as it is travelling! I love to interact and communicate with people in their language and learn the more I can.
I have a bachelor degree in Modern Languages and Literature from the University of Turin (Italy) and I've been giving lessons since I am 18 for different level students.
In Australia, I've completed an Advanced Diploma in Interpreting and I'm now a certified Italian Interpreter.

Perfect! Erika is a fantastic tutor! Her classes are really fun and she explains things in a very accessible way. She is also flexible with the structure and timing of our classes which is great and super helpful. I would definitely recommend Erika!

Erika's response

Alice is such a nice and likeable person that our conversation classes fly away!
She always has very interesting points and she's very keen to make her Italian even better than it already is!

Rianna

Perfect! Erika is the most friendly and diligent person, who accommodates her lessons to my passions and interests. She teachers with patience and enthusiasm, and is extremely knowledgable of the Italian language and history. She is flexible with her classes and their content, always willing to base her classes upon what I would like to learn, and prepares work in advance for the classes!

Erika's response

Rianna is a very passionate student! She is very organised and very careful about the details. She always makes very smart observations and she tries her best to become as fluent as a native speaker. Not to forget about the Italian culture, art and history, of which she is very keen.
The student everybody would like to have!
Very good job, Rianna! We will keep going and I'm sure you will get there :)

Erika is always looking for a way to personalize her lessons to the client’s needs and personality. She’s always looking for new, fun and engaging themes and activities and a class with her is never repetitive nor boring. I would recommend to everyone to try at least one class with her and I promise you won’t be disappointed.

In the last couple of months, I have been taking Italian lessons with Erika and I’m amazed by the progress that I made. I feel confident to start having basic conversations in Italian and I’m sure that I will reach a fluent level very soon.
Erika is very organised, structured and well prepared for every lesson. She combines different approaches (videos, writing and oral activities, etc) which make the classes interesting and funny.
Also, Erika is very friendly and flexible to conduct the lessons at different days. She is always ready to answer questions with a big smile on her face.
If you are interested in learning Italian, I strongly recommend you to contact Erika.

Erika is very passionate about her country and the Italian language. She is a fantastic tutor and makes learning fun! When I approached Erika to learn Italian she was very warm and polite. She likes to understand why you want to learn Italian, what you want to learn (speaking/writing etc.) and at what pace. Erika is very patient and works at the pace that best suits me and my work life commitments. I am learning a lot with from Erika and will continue to have Erika teach me everything Italian. Highly recommended!

Interview with Erika

QUESTION 01 | 07
Did you grow up speaking this language? Or were you inspired by a trip abroad, an individual or a certain aspect of the culture?
Erika — I was born in Italy and lived most of my life there. Then, yes! I grew up speaking Italian, a language that I value immensely and that I fell deeply in love with!
QUESTION 02 | 07
Can you name a living, historical or fictional character that you think is the emblematic representative of the language's culture?
Erika — A historical one would be Dante Alighieri, for sure: the father of our lovely language!
A living one is, in my opinion, Roberto Benigni. Another Tuscan guy of great culture, plus a very good actor!
QUESTION 03 | 07
Is there a typical word, phrase, tradition or expression in the language that you particularly like?
Erika — More than a word or an expression I love the fact that Italian people have an effective way to communicate just by using their hands and their body language. I think it's great!
QUESTION 04 | 07
Why does speaking this language matter to you?
Erika — Italian is a language with great history and traditions. It is fully structured with its complex grammar and, let's be honest, it sounds great!!
QUESTION 05 | 07
What is the main difficulty in learning this language and what can help the process of learning?
Erika — For an English speaker, the main difficulty may be the Latin structure with a very vast verb tenses variety. Pronunciation can be difficult sometimes, but having a proper "guide" through the learning process and having a lot of passion would definitely boost the results.
QUESTION 06 | 07
Provide a valuable anecdote related to your language learning or your days at school.
Erika — I remember I was terrible with grammar. I just hated it. I couldn't remember verbs, I couldn't tell the difference between an adjective or an adverb. I was just doing my assignments guessing the right answer. Then one afternoon, it was a sunny spring day, I just thought "I'm going to study this once and for all". And, I did! For some mysterious reason, I worked everything out and never ever had trouble with grammar anymore! I actually got to appreciate it and this helped me extremely in learning other languages, too!
QUESTION 07 | 07
How has travel or a specific trip helped you to increase your skill and knowledge of the language?
Erika — I would say travelling has definitely made me appreciate my language. Noticing how people love it and how much a word can tell you about a country's culture was just making me feel super proud to be Italian!
