” Suzie’s lessons are fun and high energy. She’s got loads of enthusiasm and a real passion for Italy and teaching Italian. She always prepares carefully for our lesson and the material is at the right level.  Our lessons have the right balance between conversation and grammar and she has the ability to instil confidence in me and encourage me to speak and use my Italian.” Agneta P

Learn Italian in Herts

2017 is racing ahead and you may have already planned your trip to Italy or perhaps are dreaming of going in the future… whether you go or not, now is a fabulous time to start learning Italian.  Why not buy a gift of Italian lessons as a present for a friend or loved one!  Or maybe you’re revising for exams and need some help with Italian or French.

Learning to speak a new language is not only fun and practical but also good for the brain (a scientific fact)!  Learning to speak Italian or French is sure to reward you with new friends for life!

We have a great mix of adults (and some children) that have started learning Italian and French this year as well as those that I continue to teach.  Many beginners as well as intermediate levels – so please don’t hesitate to book your Italian tuition with me.

Being based in Hertfordshire, I am not only within easy reach of those of you looking for Italian or French lessons near Ashridge, Bovingdon, Harpenden, Hemel Hempstead, Berkhamsted, Kings Langley, Croxley Green, Watford, Tring, St Albans, Brookman’s Park, Harpenden, Redbourn, Leverstock Green, Abbotts Langley but also for those based in Buckinghamshire (eg Chesham, Amersham, Great Missenden areas) and Bedfordshire (Studham, Leighton Buzzard).

I currently teach Italian to a wide range of ages from children to adults well into the golden years. Lessons and courses are designed especially for each individual or group according to their specific needs and standards to ensure personal goals can be met.

My own passion for Italian began as a teenager whilst being lucky enough to study  in Florence and Venice.  I have a Master of Arts in Italian and French from Glasgow University where I won the highest Italian scholarship available. I have also studied at the University of Florence and more recently gained a P.G.C.E. from the University of Hertfordshire.  Some of the places that I have lived in Italy include Rome, Florence and the south of Italy.  Thanks to my studies and experience I am able to develop your understanding of the culture and customs as well as the Italian language.

Most importantly I enjoy teaching and sharing my passion for Italian so if you’ve been thinking about learning Italian but never got around to it, why not start now?

“Suzi has been teaching me Italian since January (2015) and during that time my confidence and knowledge has improved hugely.  She brings passion and expertise to our lessons and makes me feel very comfortable to learn at my own pace.  I really enjoy our classes and am excited to be able to speak Italian when I travel to Italy! “ M. Kennedy

Whether you are looking for individual lessons or to learn in a small group, I will help you towards achieving your personal goal in gaining more fluency in Italian or French.

I can also adapt lessons to suit your schedule. For example perhaps you only have 20 minutes or perhaps you prefer a longer lesson of 90 minutes.  Give me a call to discuss.

Please phone 07918 144572 to arrange your first lesson and discuss your objectives! If I am unable to answer (due to teaching!) please leave your full name and contact phone number so that I can return your call.

Benvenuti a tutti!
