language learners flowers blue sky poppiesTeaching ITALIAN has been so far a beautiful, unexpected voyage in pleasant company.

At the moment, the age of my students ranges from 10 to 78 years!
Each of them has his own approach to the Italian language and culture, what they have in common is that they enjoy it.

Motivation is the key …

Learning a foreign language is an emotional process, expecially if you learn it for your own pleasure or if it was the language of your ancestors. It can be thrilling, but sometimes one can become discouraged, because the progress is not that evident.

I learnt  French at school, German at university and English “on the road”, so, I know from personal experience!

To help motivate you or boost your morale, I have collected some beautiful, sometimes poetic quotes, that I absolutely agree with:

A different language is a different vision of life.
Federico Fellini

You live a new life for every new language you speak.
Czech Proverb

To have another language is to possess a second soul.

Language learners road sunriseTo learn a language is to have one more window from which to look at the world.
Chinese Proverb

I love commuting between languages just like I love commuting between cultures and cities.
Elif Safak

Learning another language is not only learning different words for the same things, but learning another way to think about things.
