About the Instructor:
I am an Italian-American living in Florida. I grew up speaking Italian at home and developed a love for the Italian language at a very young age as we would travel back-and-forth every year to visit my family and friends.
Early on I realized that knowing another language is indeed a gift. It allows you to have relationships and friendships that you never otherwise would have had. It also allows you to travel and enjoy various cultures and new experiences.
During my stint as President of one of the Sons of Italy organizations, I was asked to teach Italian to many of the members. So I put together a little instructional course and it went over well.
Over the years I’ve continued to teach Italian and recently put together an in-person course where I’ve used the proceeds to raise money for a local charity. The course has gotten many good reviews and I also get good reviews from my Italian lessons through my local meetup group.
I’ve utilized many of the same techniques from my in-person classes in this video series.
I love sharing my knowledge of Italian and Italy with others. That is why I’ve put together this course to help others learn the Italian language and improve their lives.
