Tired of anxiety getting in the way of your language learning?

Me too.

When you feel overwhelmed by language learning, the idea of starting a study session makes you want to sob.

Let’s not even mention producing something in the language. You’re already feeling itchy, aren’t you?

Take a deep breath. I got your back.

I teach Italian and Japanese to introverts looking for a safe place to learn and practise, before jumping into the real language world.

But I prefer to say that I guide you through the overwhelm while you learn to learn without anxiety.

I believe that the only infallible way to make progress in language learning is to consistently put time and work into it. There are no magic spells to get there without effort. Where’s the fun in taking a shortcut, anyway?

Ready to build some solid roots and to thrive in language learning?

We will be great together if:

  • You’re motivated and willing to put time into assignments and reviews, but you want to learn without pressure
  • You want to “learn to learn” by yourself
  • You’re a bit of a grammar geek.

We won’t be the best match if:

  • You’re looking for miraculous hacks to make you fluent in a couple of months
  • You expect to learn only through online lessons, without studying consistently on your own
  • You’re scared of grammar, rules and tenses.
