How can learning Italian change your life?

Learning a new language literally transformed my life. I experienced firsthand what it feels like to transition from monolingual to becoming fluent in another language, English, in my case.

I am a native Italian speaker, born and raised in Bergamo, Italy. In Italy, I earned my BA in Modern Languages and discovered my true passion for languages and linguistics. I continued my studies with an MA in Linguistics from Indiana State University and a PhD in Applied Linguistics from the University of Arizona.

I am passionate about my culture, my heritage, and my language. I love nothing more than helping others become fluent and confident Italian speakers!

The Italian Matters Language and Culture School officially started in 2021, when I was home with my newborn and completing my doctoral dissertation. Since then, we enrolled more than 8,000 students in our free and paid online courses. If you’re eager to learn the steps, strategies, and shortcuts that will help you become a fluent and confident Italian speaker, you are in the right place.

I’m here to help you make that happen… Let’s transform the way you learn and speak Italian. You, too, can be a fluent and confident Italian speaker!
