I joined Gloria’s Italian Speaking Practice Club to connect with a native speaker and to watch, listen, read and write in a positive learning environment.  I also liked the idea of finding a language partner(s) to enhance my experience.  There are many benefits of learning with Gloria.  Her approach to teaching is intelligent, entertaining and highly practical.  She successfully demonstrates helpful techniques for learning.  Her video lessons are delivered in a welcoming and cheerful manner.  They focus on speaking/pronunciation, writing, a daily task, vocabulary and grammar.  They cover a variety of interesting topics (i.e. culture, food, places, etc.)  The material is presented in an organized and well-constructed user-friendly way.  Each monthly lesson plan includes a pronunciation exercise, vocab/grammar section, a practical task and a section of interactive games.  The learning materials are printable so I keep these pages in a binder for easy access and use.  It is an efficient way to keep my study notes in order and serves as an effective reference guide.  The playful games are useful in building vocabulary with repetition and speed.  I actively enjoy the group’s participation because this dynamic really helps in learning too.  Gloria is always available to answer questions, explain and give assistance when needed.  Over time, my comprehension skills have greatly improved and I do have more confidence in working toward my goal of mastering the art of fluency.  I enthusiastically recommend the Club to anyone who is looking for a fun and comprehensive way to learn/study/speak Italian.  Learning with Gloria is a rewarding experience.  I always look forward to her next lesson!

I love learning languages because I love to travel. Over the years I’ve had experience of lots of methods and approaches – online and otherwise – and with several different languages. I have to be honest and say that Gloria’s teaching in the club and in person with Skype lessons is right up there with the very best I’ve ever had. Her patient and fun approach, combined with the learning games and the quality of the teaching makes learning fast, challenging but very, very achievable … and above all of that, it’s great fun.

Italian is new to me but at the start of this year I decided to give it a go and before finding Gloria I had tried several other online methods and also had some lessons with tutors from a well known online service. I was making a little bit of progress but it was slow and my confidence with the language wasn’t high.

I found Gloria on instagram and loved the way she presented the language in charming little videos that were easy to understand and really helpful. I decided to join the Speaking Practice Club and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone. It’s great value and quite unique in all my experience.

Each module brings listening practice based around Italian culture and life in Italy. There’s text to practice your reading … followed by vocabulary and grammar lessons and on top of all of that customised games to help retain what you’ve learned. I also love the section on for practicing how to pronounce the language properly.

All in all it’s the best value for learning Italian that you’ll find and I can’t recommend it highly enough.

I had taken Italian back in college – many yrs ago – 1986-1989. I loved the Italian language/culture (I started dating this Italian girl from New York – and went to an Italian film class of hers and saw a film by Fellini. I just became more and more engrossed from there really. I joined the club to brush up more on the language. I have gotten some good re-introduction to a lot of things that forgot and some new colloquial things as well. I would recommend the club to someone who is looking for the same thing – you’re very engaging, friendly, and knowledgeable.
