I joined Gloria’s Italian Italian Warriors 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!
