Raffaella teaches Italian to my 7 and 4 year old together. She teaches in a fun and interactive way fully immersing them in the language rather than reverting to English translation. Their concentration spans inevitably vary but she is very good at changing the temple and medium of learning to keep it dynamic and engaging. Highly recommended!

I’ve studied Spanish with Raffaella on one to one basis. As a busy person it was the best solution for me and also because I am not a big fun of studying in big groups.
Raffaella is very hard working and she was very patient with me as at times I had mood just to give up.
Thanks to her repeating things over and over again and taking the time to explain everything step by step my Spanish improved immensely.
Her learning is fun and she makes you feel at ease.
I´m glad I´ve met Raffaella and I would recommend her and Languages Alive to anyone who wants to learn on their own.

Raffaella is very helpful and I have really enjoyed my Italian lessons that she has organised with Silvia; I have learnt a lot and the classes are fun and engaging. I look forward to continuing to learn Italian through Languages Alive!

The children really enjoyed making tagliatelle with you and it was something they talked about for the rest of the term! Thank you for also teaching them a lot of Italian vocabulary. Thank you Raffaella!

I absolutely recommend Languages Alive to anyone interested in learning Italian. I’ve been taking weekly lessons with Raffaella since August 2020 and I can’t say enough good things about her as a teacher and her lesson content. She is a supportive and engaged teacher and her instructions are always clear. My listening comprehension and my confidence to speak is improving weekly and I always look forward to my lessons.

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.

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!
