Basil testimonial

Loved it, loved it, loved it. I’ve been trying to learn languages using various language learning apps for years now and although I know random words I feel no more confident in actually speaking the languages than I was when I started.

I’m 5 days into this course and feeling more confident in actually speaking Italian than I am while using the apps.

This course cuts through all the unnecessary stuff the apps were teaching me and focuses on getting me comfortable and confident to put my new-found Italian to use.

The audio and worksheets are my favourite as it gets me to speak and write which is definitely speeding up the learning process for me.

I cannot recommend this course highly enough. Definitely worth every penny.

Thank you Michele.

I can’t wait for my next trip to Italy.

Roma testimonial

I really enjoyed the Master Italian for Travel FAST course, it certainly exceeded my expectations. The learning methodology is great, and easy to follow and found that I progressed much faster in the last 4 weeks than I ever did on my own or using other language apps. Grazie mille Michele, I can't wait until I can put my new skills into action!

Billy testimonial

Michele’s course is the best! I can't even count how many other courses I've tried, as I'm sure, we all have. For me, Michele’s course is simply the best and Michele’s additional videos are invaluable.

The course is the perfect combination of, starting off with the simple phrases and easy sentence structure you need to get by on a visit to Italy, along with the formal instruction to fully learn Italian.

Having just returned from our first trip to Rome, just knowing the simple phrases Michele teaches just to make yourself understood was extremely helpful! I honestly used EVERYTHING I learned! I am now even more inspired to stay with the Intrepid Italian Guide to really master Italian! Grazie, Michele!

Mark testimonial

Michele’s "Master Italian for Travel FAST" course has helped to reignite my interest in learning the Italian language.

The course was easy to navigate, comprehensive and accommodating to my learning needs.

I found the real-time feedback provided by each module's quiz to be useful and appreciated the course's variety of learning resources available.

I can't wait to put into practice the phrases I've learnt when I'm next in Italy ... and who knows, perhaps be mistaken for a local!

Larch testimonial

I was instantly surprised by how brilliant this course is! The content is presented in an easy to follow lesson style format, whilst not being too much content for even a 10 minute session.

Michele really has made things very methodical and she covers the information and details you need, really well. She’s found a way to make even grammar and sentence structure appealing! I love the pronunciation videos, and how well things are broken down into manageable chunks, and that I was learning things immediately.

The course is also extremely professional looking, with aesthetically pleasing graphics and beautiful cheat sheets that will be so practical on future travels.

This course has been a brilliant present to myself! I would definitely recommend it! 

- Emily Wills

Larch testimonial

I'm so happy I took this course. I've spent years feeling badly about forgetting the Italian I learned and never reaching fluency. I love learning with Michele. I love that she isn't a native Italian speaker.

I would argue that she makes a better teacher because she had to learn just the same way I have to learn. And she is confident enough to provide native Italian speakers in the course so you don't have to worry that you are not hearing the language the way Italians speak it. You make it easy to be successful.

- Michele, New York, USA

"It is a very well crafted course. It makes language learning fun to do and very much aimed at the sort of standard situations anyone is likely to find when visiting Italy. Well done!"

- Don Woodall

Here's what they are saying:


This course is well-organized into digestible chunks - so it's never overwhelming but just enough content in the module to learn and retain the lesson. The exercises are excellent to reinforce learning! I appreciate that lesson transcripts are included and offers great tips for remembering rules.

I just love the structure of the course and like that Michele is in the videos so it has more of a classroom feel!

This course has improved my speaking skills, especially with the use of reflexive verbs, as well as a better understanding of possessive pronouns and adjectives. Highly recommend this program if you are looking to learn Italian!

- Sheila, Toronto, Canada



I have found taking language courses from Michele a rewarding and enjoyable experience, which I would recommend to anyone without hesitation. For myself, my Italian has improved from near zero to where I can now carry on basic conversations. 

Michele does an excellent job of breaking the material down so you study only what you need to without wasted effort. If you are serious about a language, or just curious, taking Michele’s course is a decision you will not regret.

- Marty, Ontario, Canada


Michele is more than just the guide behind this course, she is a natural teacher and passionate language learner who cares deeply about her students and sharing the Italian language. This shines through as she walks you through learning Italian basics, in small, bite-sized steps.

It’s easy to get overwhelmed by learning a new language. But, Intrepid Italian’s short, simple lessons (that include videos, exercises, tips and printables) build on one another, giving you invaluable confidence and momentum.

- Sara, Washington, USA



I started my quest in learning Italian through a well-known language app. After a year of trying to learn tangible skills on this game platform, I realized I needed to step it up and get serious. Luckily I found Michele and I was drawn to her teaching style. Her videos had a positive energy and exuded such passion for the language. I had to experience more so I purchased the A1, A2, B1 plus the Italian for Travel courses. 

I love that the modules are arranged in easily digestible amounts. I have the flexibility to devour a lesson when it fits into my schedule rather than the commitment of a weekly in person lesson. 

I was able to test out some of my newfound knowledge recently in Italy. The ability to communicate with locals gave me the extra boost to keep forging ahead!

I love that Michele's technique focuses on what you really need to know (80/20 method!) rather than obscure vocabulary you might never need to use.

The level of communication from Michele is amazing. She's truly invested in her student's success with learning Italian. I think Michele has found her calling in teaching and empowering others. I am grateful to have found Michele and this program!

Basil testimonial

I've been following Michele for a number of years, and her method to learning languages is practical and efficient, in a non-overwhelming way. I especially like the conversational segments, where theory is truly turned into practice and converted to language you will actually use and hear when travelling.
