Stefano Lodola

Italian Polyglot and Language Teacher

Italian Polyglot

I was raised speaking only Italian, and now I speak nine foreign languages, mostly at an advanced level, several of which I learned without going abroad, some in only a few months.

I achieved this as an adult by speaking with people, not in class or with books, using original techniques and free or affordable learning resources.

Italian Language Teacher

I’ve taught Italian to adults in language schools and universities. I work as an independent translator from Japanese, Korean and Chinese into Italian. I’ve written a book and lectured in polyglot clubs about my method.

I have developed my own Italian audio course “Ripeti con me!” Based on spaced repetition, this course is for total beginners to intermediate learners who want to practice speaking.

Translator from Japanese, Korean, and Chinese into Italian

I do professional translations of financial, technical, and business documents from Japanese, Korean, and Chinese into Italian.
