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.
As a native Italian language teacher, I’ve taught 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.
As an online Italian tutor, I’ve done 1300+ classes on Skype on multiple language teaching platforms.
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.
I performed as an operatic tenor in concerts and events in Japan. My repertoire is mostly made up of Italian operas by Verdi and Puccini and Neapolitan songs.
I’m a self-taught amateur chess player. You often find me on Chess.com.
Cats bring beauty to the world.
