The Italian Effect

About Me

Hi! I’m Agata, and I help all things Italian lovers to speak better and immerse themselves in the language and culture of Italy.

I come from Poland, but I’m based in Puglia, Italy. I know all struggles with speaking fluently and understanding spoken Italian, I’ve been there too.

When I first came to Italy, after two years of studying Italian in Poland, I couldn’t understand a lot, let alone speak. When I started a conversation with someone, they wanted to talk to me in English, even if they barely knew it. It was nice, but I wanted to practice my Italian…

Sounds familiar?

I’ve mastered my Italian while surrounding myself with sounds, accents, simply listening and connecting with the people. Now my mission is to make it possible for you.

I believe that you have to live a language, experience it, and not just study it at a desk. Learning Italian can be a life-changing experience, and it will make your life richer.
