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.

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!

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!
