My happy clients have a lot to say about my services!
If today I speak with my colleagues and friends in Italian it is only thanks to Elisabetta. There are few professors who manage to teach with a smile and passion. She is among them. As soon as I started the course she asked me what I wanted to enhance and I succeeded in my goals. With perseverance and patience, she taught me how to start a simple conversation and be more confident in my vocabulary. During this session, I was busy with my work but no lessons were missed. Between recorded lessons and homework, you never stop learning! It was a great experience that I highly recommend. I can say that I found a lot of professionalism and dedication in the work that was done. If you want to start an Italian course, ask Elisabetta!

I have been studying Italian with Elisabetta for 5 months and I can highly recommend her to anyone who wants to achieve big results in a relatively short period of time. Her sessions have been tailor-made to my wishes and needs and I receive 100% attention from her during our 1-to-1 course. She is an extremely committed, highly motivated and professional language coach who has been doing her utmost to polish my Italian language skills with much success. I have thoroughly enjoyed spending time on learning new Italian words and grammar with her. She always goes the extra mile for the sessions as well as for me as her professional client. She has definitely given me the confidence I needed to start using this beautiful language. Her tips on brain connections and neuroplasticity encouraged me not to give up learning when it became a challenge. After the sessions I have used her fantastic YouTube videos to consolidate and reinforce what we learnt together. This has been an extra service for her to create a flow in my learning process. All in all, she is a wonderful professional coach who makes your Italian language journey unforgettable. Go for it!
Monika Brabers (Netherlands)Business English Trainer
I had the opportunity to attend Elisabetta’s Italian lessons for about 6 months and it was a wonderful experience for me. I started her courses when I almost didn’t know any Italian and it was really difficult for me to communicate in Italian society. Attending Italian courses with Elisabetta gave me enough confidence in order to use Italian in my routine daily conversation and even in my workplace. Her ability of connecting with her students and supporting them is exemplary. She teaches easy concepts as well as more advanced topics in a simple and understandable way specially to the students who are not familiar with Italian language at all. She tries to develop all your language skills (reading, listening, speaking and writing) and asks if you have any priorities for learning each of the skills. Overall, she is a professional, creative and up to date teacher, which makes her an ideal leader. Moreover, her courses were really fascinating and we had lots of fun together!
Meshkini Khatereh (Iran)PhD Researcher
A few weeks after my arrival in Italy, I started my Italian lessons with Elisabetta who is very responsible, passionate, and enthusiastic in teaching. She sends emails to remind us to do the homework and watching some useful videos on her Youtube channel. Furthermore, she also answers our questions readily and checks our pronunciation carefully to ensure that the answers are as accurate as possible. Moreover, she cares for her students and will ask what happened to them when the students did not appear for classes. The biggest gift she gave me was the confidence to start speaking in Italian.
In summary, I can declare that she is an excellent tutor who goes above and beyond to ensure that her students are well-equipped with the materials being taught in class, and also, she sends the material for the next session in order to make sure the students can get ready for the upcoming lesson. She never hesitates to give additional resources and feedback to her students and treats us all equally. Her enthusiasm has definitely affected her students and they became more attentive and active in class. I literally look forward to contributing more and learn more under her guidance.

I had the chance to start learning Italian with Elisabetta thanks to FBK and I regret not having more time with her. She is shiny and supportive whatever she has to go through, she is really patient even when we do same mistakes over and over again, and it is really funny to learn with her. Not every teacher will care about you like she does. She is not only a great teacher but also a good friend. Before I met her, I was afraid to speak, I couldn’t say one word in Italian, thanks to her, I am not afraid anymore.
Inci Rüya Temel (France)Early stage researcher
Elisabetta Maccani held a 20-hour Italian course for me and my collegues with little prior knowledge of the language. The course took place during the COVID restrictions, so all of the activities were done online. Although the restrictions limit the efficiency of learning, I must say that Elisabetta is very well prepared and organized for online teaching. She is energetic and also a lot of fun during discussions, which helps especially us at the beginner stage to be more active and comfortable during the lessons. Elisabetta also speaks perfect English (and also Spanish) which is great for the more in depth questions about the Italian grammar and language itself. I can recommend her as a five star teacher with a great online presence, which is especially important if face to face lessons are not possible.
Anže Sitar (Slovenia)Mechanical Engineer and Researcher
As a keen language lover and experienced business English teacher, I was keen on starting to learn Italian, too. I started to learn with Elisabetta and discovered a whole new world within literally 40 minutes of our first learning session. At the end of the session I was able to introduce myself, my job, and my family. I learnt numbers and basic conversational phrases, and felt that I could actually have a basic conversation with real people, Elisabetta’s language coaching style is really engaging and interactive. She is also very creative and very skilled at using online teaching tools. She has kept my brain calm and ready to soak in whatever language learning goals we decided to achieve together.
Jasmina Radivojsa (Serbia)Business English Teacher
I have been doing courses with Elisabetta for over a year now and she has helped me to put together all the sparse knowledge I had in Italian till that moment. Since the first lessons I noticed a large step forward in the way I was expressing myself in Italian, and everything in my head started making sense. Together we managed to arrive to an advanced level and already few months later I felt confident enough to even use Italian in professional meetings on a daily basis. Being also a Spanish speaker, I faced difficulties distinguishing the two languages and she helped me overcome this problem as she is experienced also in this field. She always has interesting material to provide, dealing often with entertaining cultural topics, never lacks motivation and good mood. She is also very well organized and explains all possible grammar details in a clear and easy to remember way!
Ellie Stathopoulou (Greece)M. Eng. Photogrammetry specialist
I have studied Italian with Elisabetta for around three months, I remembered that in our first class she asked me in which condition I had to speak Italian. Then she found a lot of materials from books, magazines or online videos to adjust our requirements. It proves that what we have learned in class is very useful during our life and work in Italy. She also taught us grammar, which is helpful to further learn Italian. She is very patient, when I could’t understand something, she explained again and again with Italian or English until I got it. She is so professional and so kind, I highly recommend her as an Italian teacher!
Zhifu Feng (China)PhD Student
In the beginning, every time people spoke Italian around me, I couldn’t understand a word. A couple of months in, I was able to express my thoughts and communicate with native speakers. Elisabetta explained to me everything in a very easy manner, every session was a lot of fun and I learned a lot!
Iliyas Zhanatuly (Kazakhstan)M. Eng.
My name is Omid and I am Iranian, I have been in Italy for 4 years. The first year it was difficult to learn the Italian language, but the second one I had the great fortune of finding a way to learn the Italian language, thanks to Professor Elisabetta Maccani. I remember that from the first days she pushed me to commit myself. Whenever I had a question, she explained things very willingly, without getting impatient or angry. Let me point out that for those like me who come from the East, learning Italian is very difficult, since we do not speak either English or French. And here the alphabet is completely different! If I now know Italian, I have a safe job and I have friends, I owe it to Elisabetta and her job as a teacher of Italian for foreigners. I have always said and will always say that I will always be grateful for what she has done for me. If you want to learn Italian, trust her: she knows what she has to do and you will make progress immediately. I apologize for the length of this review but, believe me, I could talk about Elizabeth until tomorrow!
