Italian language games

Are you ready to kick-start your Italian?

Italian language games

You need to learn Italian and you’ve been looking for a way to start. Maybe you’ve tried some methods, but now you’re back to square one.

Everything that you know now is that you need to learn Italian again from scratch.

But how can you start?

Let me introduce you to PlayItaliano


PlayItaliano is my method and my philosophy. I believe that learning Italian can be easy and fun, and that you can speak it from the very beginning.


PlayItaliano will help you learn, remember and speak Italian easily, playfully, and without stress.


You will…


♥ Learn by playing

Forget about word lists and verbs memorization. You will discover a fun and easy way to learn, remember and use Italian. By playing these language games, not only will you learn more easily, but you’ll also be able to remember more.


♥ Follow your pace

Putting pressure on you will only push you away from your ultimate goal: speaking confidently. You will learn at your time and pace so that you will feel comfortable moving forward and speak more and more.


♥ Speak from day one

By saying your first Italian words, you’re already speaking Italian. I will encourage you to say your first Italian words and phrases from the very beginning. This is how we build confidence, after all.

“I was lucky to find Gloria nine months ago, and it has been “un bel viaggo italiano” – a beautiful Italian journey – ever since. Gloria is a joy to work with. She is always energetic and funny, but also patient and well-prepared. She thoughtfully designs curricula that cover the essentials, adhere to your goals, and are enjoyable to complete. Gloria often claims she is a clown disguised as a teacher, and it’s definitely true. I look forward to every lesson because I know I will laugh, but also learn. As a result of studying with Gloria, today I am a confident Italian speaker who can comfortably hold conversations, arrange logistics, and enjoy shows and podcasts in Italian. I enthusiastically recommend Gloria as a language teacher!”

“When I decided to study Italian, I knew I wanted to start with a professional teacher. I have always found learning the fundamentals this way far more effective than other methods. I have worked with Gloria for almost 2 months. Throughout this time Gloria has always been incredibly supportive and patient with me. Her materials are high quality and are always used to review and cement new words and grammar. Gloria’s teaching style is very much designed to allow the student more control over the pace and content, rather than being dictated what you should know. I do not feel stressed or overly emotional when I work with Gloria. It has been very easy to build rapport and a professional relationship with Gloria. I intend to continue learning Italian with Gloria as a result of her efforts and her teaching style.”

Matthew Sue Yek

“When I strarted my lessons with Gloria I could say two words in Italian…. ciao and grazie, and most day to day interactions with Italians while on holiday were filled with the dread that being unable to understand a language brings.
Now, after taking lessons for around a year I can confidently carry out many tasks covering things like shopping, getting around on public transport, asking for or giving directions along with many other similar day to day conversations. While travelling in Italy I can now communicate with confidence, it’s a great feeling to be able to approach people knowing they will understand what I ask and I will understand their response .
Gloria’s teaching style is very interactive and always fun while still maintaining focus, this approach works well and makes sure lessons are always a pleasure.”

Ian Taylor

“I absolutely LOVE working with Gloria!!!! She is fun and has many fun ways to enhance the learning process. I only wish I could meet with her every day to work with her. She makes you feel very comfortable and free to ask questions too. She is always prepared and ready for our lessons and she is always pleasant. I look forward to many many more lessons with her and seeing my Italian progress 🙂”

How does it work?


This is an individual path.

We will meet online, where you will discover the Italian language step by step and you will practice speaking with me.

Wait, did I just say “discover”?

Yes. Don’t expect to be given the rules like you used to be when you were at school.

When you learn with me face-to-face, you will be the one to discover the rules and to put them into practice right afterwards.

This is going to help you remember more and speak Italian indepentendly when you’re not with me.

And, of course, I mentioned speaking as well.

Because there is no true learning if you don’t speak.

Speaking is the ultimate tool that will make you fluent and confident in Italian.

And what about those games?

Games will be a part of our lessons and of your individual practice.

Yes, I expect you to do a bit of homework between each class. 😉

These games add more fun to your lessons and take the stress away from you. And the best part is that they help you learn and remember more.

“I have been taking classes with Gloria for more than two months now. I am enjoying the Skype lessons because she is teaching in a very interactive way. She knows well how to use resources like the magic board or Skype to transmit lessons. The lessons are very much adapted to the personal needs. If there is a wish for a topic, Gloria takes time to specifically prepare a lesson on that. Also, any question on the previous lesson or homework can be asked in between the lessons so an unclarity becomes clear soon. I can strongly recommend to take classes with Gloria and to also become familiar with the Italian language. She really is an enthusiastic, well-versed and committed teacher!”
