Hello, I'm Lorella Federico, a professional Italian language teacher based in Panzano, a small hilltop town in Tuscany, Italy. Panzano is located exactly halfway between Florence and Sienna, in the middle of the popular Chianti Classico area. I teach Italian to individuals and small groups of all ages.
If you're planning a holiday in Tuscany, why not take a some Italian lessons to learn correct Italian pronunciation and useful phrases? If you already speak some Italian, take the opportunity of some Italian lessons with a professionally-trained, native Italian speaker to improve your Italian language skills.
In addition to teaching Italian to individuals and groups large and small right here in Italy, I offer one-to-one lessons via Skype to those who wish to learn Italian in the comfort of their own homes. Practice your Italian before and after your vacation in Italy!
Lessons may be held at my location but I'm happy to come to your vacation accommodation or where you live for your Italian lesson.
Italian lessons tailored to your personality and age. Everyone has a unique way of learning. I try to match that with a mix of techniques.
The ways people of different ages like to learn differ. Taking that into account is an important part of the Italian learning experience that I offer.
The most important factor for successfully learning a language is having a good reason to do so. Enhance your stay in Italy by understanding and speaking a bit of Italian!
