This is what our clients say about our Live & Learn Italian Experience program

I enjoyed the lessons I took. Combining learning Italian and cooking made learning more fun. Sometimes it is hard to stay motivated and I found the material very helpful. She is very prompt in replying to any questions I have and the material was very well organized.
James Rice
What a wonderful programme, that not only helps to improve Italian language skills but teaches authentic Italian recipes at the same time. Highly enjoyable. Grazie mille Raffaella!

What our clients say about our virtual experiences

I have just completed a virtual cooking lesson with Raffaella. It's an extremely clever way of learning Italian without realising you are learning and is a lot of fun
Gillian Travers
I like the lesson very much, I love Italy 🇮🇹 and I went there for many summers and I would like to learn the language very much” 😍

As a linguist and a tutor, I understand the difficulties you encounter when learning another language. Above all, I personally know exactly how overwhelming it can be. Well, the good news is: it doesn’t have to be!

Learning should be fun, challenging in a good way, exciting and rewarding. Finally, I have the opportunity to share with you my unique approach which has been so popular in London for many years now.
I believe tradition translates into authenticity. 

About me


I was born and bred in Italy till the age of 19. I moved in the UK in 1995 with broken English. After, a couple of years I applied to Kingston University and successfully achieved a degree in Spanish and French. After travelling over 31 countries working on board of cruise ships I came back to London and got a CLTA certificate for teaching modern languages to adults. After a couple of years I enrolled at Birkbeck University of London where I studied second language acquisition in adults and children as part of my Master’s degree in intercultural communication in business and professions.

Driven by my passion for teaching my mother tongue Italian I combined my passion for cooking Nonna Lena’s recipes and developed an exciting teaching method, teaching Italian following my grandma’s traditional recipes.

I care about sharing my language and culture; I care about giving you the most authentic Italian experience ever so that you can enjoy learning from wherever you are, whenever you want.
