Learn FLUENT, RICH and CORRECT ITALIAN, WITHOUT even REALIZING it!



Thanks to the grammatical schemes and exercises that I’ve developed over more than 20 years, based on logic, visual memory and connections between words, my students are shown the logical mechanism that is behind our beautiful language. Understanding why something works in a certain way, they will remember it forever, without needing to memorize it mechanically.
