Connect with Italian
How do we learn a new language? There are uncountable methods, techniques, exercises, but if you ask me, in the end it all comes to connection. Everything in life is connected and so are we and languages.
Sentences are formed through the connection of different parts, meanings are conveyed through the connection of language and context, the words you read, say, or are told to you become memories. This is the whole cycle for me.
The way I see language learning is equal parts intuition, awareness, and consistency. My favorite methods are creative reading and writing activities.
How you can strengthen your emotional connection with Italian and grow as an independent learner:
My personal approach to learning a language has evolved over the years. A lot. I have always wanted to be able to read literature and poetry in my target language; I have always wanted to watch movies in that language too. Most of all, I wanted to be able to travel and talk with people on the street or in a cafe. I’m sure you have similar goals with Italian, but you have realized it is so hard; it takes a lot of time, much more than you had anticipated; and there are so many offers out there. So I’m here to guide you through your path to learning Italian with everything I know about it. I’ll teach you how to create connections, meanings, memories. Via newsletter and membership.
No matter the current level of your Italian, you can enjoy writing and reading on your own. We’ll take it slowly, like Italians sipping a glass of wine watching the sunset. This is not about rules, grammar, or perfection. This is about the pleasure of learning Italian.

What’s the best way to create connections, meanings, memories? Doing it consistently. Which doesn’t mean studying Italian every day as many hours as possible, it means establishing a routine and following it regularly. I’m here to help you do all of it by giving you monthly tasks that you can carry out at your own pace and that will keep you busy on a regular basis. I will be giving you tips on how to organize your Italian learning time using reflection, journaling, instants of marvel. You’ll become a more sensitive learner and you will develop your own “Italian self”.
