Are you looking for Italian classes to learn and talk Italian in Milan?

Language is the mirror of culture and as the world becomes more and more globalized, knowing another language can only be considered as an enormous skill and advantage. 

Nowadays being multilingual opens the doors to more opportunities, both in studies and career. 

It is no doubt that learning a foreign language is difficult, most certainly the Italian one which is completely different from the English one. At first you’re going to make mistakes, using a word for another just like when mistakenly people use “talk italian”, instead of “speak italian”. 

This kind of mistakes usually occurs when you’re at a beginner level, in this case when you’ve just started to learn a foreign language. What I’m trying to say is that, if you’re planning to live away from home, in Milan perhaps, then you better start looking for a school where you can take Italian classes.

Ciao, nice to meet you! My name is Maria Pagano and I’m passionate about languages. I’ve studied Modern Foreign Languages and Literature at the University of Catania. I’m a teacher of Italian L2 and I got the second level DITALS certification issued by the University for Foreigners of Siena. I’ve taught and still teach Italian language to foreign students, as a volunteer in schools, like Penny Wirton and Mamme A Scuola ONLUS where Italian language is taught for free. My mission is to teach the Italian language to let students discover and live the Italian culture through direct contacts with people and in different context from the classroom, in order to satisfy the needs, the wishes and the curiosities of people who want to know Italy and its features. Learning the language and live the culture. How? With an experiential course which alternates lessons in classroom with practice outside the classroom, all over the city. At the end of this journey Milan will have no secrets for you. And neither will the Italian language. During my academic course (and after it as well) I’ve had the opportunity to study foreign languages and I’ve experienced and lived the impact with foreign cultures in foreign countries. I know what happens when you “go out of the school” and face the world around you. These experiences have turned into moments of reflection which led me to think about a different way of teaching and learning a foreign language: an EXPERIENTIAL COURSE.
