Hi, I’m Agata, an Italian language teacher, a Polish mother tongue based in Apulia, Italy. I know your struggles in speaking Italian. I still remember me searching for words and figuring out how to create a decent conversation in Italian.

I’m here to help you to speak with confidence and practice Italian, even if you don’t have much time.

Learning a language is a long term project, and improving your speaking skills takes time. But in a week you can break the barrier in speaking, feel more confident and easy when you speak Italian. If, after the challenge, you’ll feel like you need more help to boost your speaking, I’ll be offering different options of studying with me.

You should at least be able to create short discourses in Italian. During the challenge, we’ll talk about the culture of Italy and your country. If you’re not sure about your level, you can book a call with me to talk about it.

There is no participation fee, you get access to an intensive speaking challenge for free. One week of the challenge corresponds to a month of learning in my group course. In addition to boosting your speaking skills, you’ll have a chance to get familiar with my way of teaching and with my courses.
