During my first run of 10 classes I am amazed have much italian, I have learned.
Silvia is extremely good at explaining context and meaning of the italian language. She slowly pushes her student to take in even more words. I like the conversations on Italian culture and the opportunity to listen to Italian while trying to speak.
I find the classes informal and cosy but at the same time there is a clear push and goal to ensure that we get through the curricilum. I will highly recommend Silvia Prosperi.

I am enjoying my Italian lessons with Giuseppe. I am a beginner and Giuseppe has been very patient with me. He is an excellent teacher for beginners. He takes the time to help you learn the sounds and engages you in meaningful conversations, so you can practice speaking your new language. I recommend the online live instruction with Giuseppe. I look forward to my lessons each week. The Italian Virtual School is an excellent option for learning Italian from a highly skilled teacher who will work with you to get you talking, reading, and writing in Italian. Thanks Giuseppe for keeping me motivated and excited about Italian!

I agree with everything the David says in the comment below! Our teacher Federica is passionate, kind, friendly, always encouraging and really knowledgeable of Italian grammar and very good at explaining it. I always looked forward to her lesson every week. I also found the comments she gave me on my writing assignments really helpful, and I could ask her questions in at the beginning of the following lessons if I have any doubt. This was very precious lesson for me. In addition, she also gave me lots of pieces of advice on how to keep on studying outside lessons, and now I am in the habit of listening to audiobooks and radios, which I am grateful for.

In every aspect, this online Italian course exceeds my expectations.

I highly recommend this language program. From the onset of communication with Silvia and then on to my lessons, everything was handled in a very friendly and professional manner. They were able to accomodate my schedule (being 9 hours behind Italy time) and develop a study program based on my needs.

My instructor, Federica, was an absolute joy to be in class with. She made the lessons both engaging and informative. She possesses a strong command of the English language and can effectively express complex language concepts with ease and in multiple ways in order to ensure student comprehension. Not only does she teach the necessary grammar but also colloquial expressions that add to the experience of learning a new language. I looked forward to each and every class and always felt comfortable asking questions.

Take this course!

I recently complete 10 lessons with Giuseppe. I was a great experience. By the end I felt like I had new friend as opposed to just an Italian language instructor. His style and use of the recommended text book were most helpful as were the written assignments he gave. I now have more confidence in my ability to have a basic conversation in Italian. Thanks, and I will be back soon.

Ottima scelta per studiare la lingua italiana. Le informazioni trasmesse attraverso il corso aiutano a scoprire non soltanto la lingua italiana ma anche una piccola parte dall'enorme cultura e civiltà italiana. Non vorrei dimenticare di dire che Giuseppe è un professore squisito ed è stato un piacere studiare con lui.

Taking my lessons with Giuseppe has been great. Not only were the lessons productive but they were also light and fun, which helps a great deal with learning. I’ve already seen an improvement in those two months and I feel encouraged to study and read more Italian. Giuseppe is also always willing to help in extra-curricular exercises that I bring up, and equally enthusiastic when I do well.

In the past, I’ve also studied with Silvia and Irene , and they were incredible. The main thing I like about the teaching methods in Italian Virtual School is their ability to help us remember the information we studied by practicing the information from different angles during the lesson. Very grateful.

Over more than one year I have had the pleasure of speaking with Benedetta about once per week via What's App video conference for the purpose of Italian language learning and improvement. It has been and continues to be a highly informative and enjoyable experience speaking with Benedetta who is extremely professional, patient and with a pleasant demeanor that makes one look forward to the lesson. I would highly recommend Italian Virtual School to anyone looking to learn Italian or improve their Italian language skills.

I love this online Italian class. I tried studying Italian on my own for two years with limited success. I knew I needed to have regular conversations with native speakers. I reached out to Virtual Italian School and found much more. After taking a placement test – I was very much the beginner – I began twice weekly Skype lessons with Silvia. The Italian classes are rigorous but fun. And, the conversational portions are the best part. Silvia was my first teacher until a schedule change got me set up with Giuseppe. They have both been awesome teachers. Last year I went to Siena and received my B2 certificate from an immersion school. It was satisfying being in a new school and having my skills on solid ground. Learning Italian online has deepened my appreciation and affection for all things Italian. Give it a shot!

My lessons with Giuseppe have been fantastic! Over the course of two years I have seen a dramatic increase in my command of the language, and soon I'll be attempting my B1 exam. I highly recommend Italian Virtual School 🙂

Over the past two years, I have certainly profited from a multitude of Skype lessons with Silvia. She is an exceptional professional, with a solid background in language studies and education.
I especially appreciate the ease and flexibility of these online courses. My professional and private life don't always coincide with a fixed regime, and Silvia has always remained extremely understanding. The Skype lessons provide us with a human "touch" that is often lacking, even in a traditional educational environment.
I would highly recommend The Italian Virtual school.

Silvia is a creative, thoughtful, flexible and patient teacher. Despite having daily lessons over a 3 month period the lessons were always enjoyable and engaging. Silvia taught us more than just language, we learnt about Italian culture, food, cinema, music, politics and history. It was so exciting to be able to watch Italian classics in the original language and follow them because of how Silvia had taught us in class. I couldn't recommend her enough especially to first language English speakers.

I started taking Italian classes as a beginner with Silvia three months ago, first onsite courses, before switching recently to online ones. I'm appreciating Silvia's flexibility with my non-regular schedule, her way to diversify each class (discussion, reading, grammar and conjugation)... and I even surprise myself doing my homework... This type of course is really dynamic.
I'm also taking online classes with another teacher of Italian Virtual School (Irene), which brings some good complementarity (mostly focused on discussions, with different topics and a different accent); Irene's flexibility in terms of scheduling the online classes is very appreciated as well.
I've made good progress so far thanks to both of them.
I do recommend this virtual course! Grazie, Silvia

Our daughter Barbara loves having Silvia as a teacher! She has been taking Italian for two years at school and although she could understand the language, the spoken part and grammar were still very approximate. She started taking classes with Silvia 3 months ago and the result is pretty amazing!
Barbara can now speak and write Italian and read an entire book. Thanks to the classes she is now able to join a dual language program in her new school.
As a teacher, I can only praise Silvia's dedication and determination to challenge her students and to set clear goals for them.

Grazie mille Silvia!

I began taking virtual courses with Silvia a couple months ago, and I've really enjoyed them. Silvia has been flexible with my constantly changing schedule, making this type of course setup very dynamic. She also also caters to my skill level and previous romance language experiences, which allows for a unique way of learning and adjusting to my pace 'on the fly.' Whether you are beginner or advanced Italian speaker I highly recommend this virtual (either as a core course or supplemental learning opportunity)! Grazie, Silvia

Italian Virtual School is amazing! I had taken Italian for a few years in college and wanted to continue studying after I graduated, but finding classes that fit my schedule and my level were tough. IVS gives me the opportunity to keep up and continue improving my Italian with a hectic work schedule. I have been working with Silvia for the past year and I could not be happier. Silvia is an amazing teacher and does a great job of providing authentic material to discuss in addition to grammar and vocabulary topics. I always look forward to our lessons and enjoy having the opportunity to have interesting, stimulating and meaningful conversations. Thanks Silvia!

Giuseppe is a wonderful instructor, and I look forward to class with him every week! As a working professional, Italian Virtual School is a great resource because it gives me the flexibility to schedule classes that fit my hectic schedule and allows me to learn Italian from home. Not only is IVS workable with my schedule, but it's also relatively affordable. I'm excited to continue learning Italian with Giuseppe over the next 10 weeks!

I enjoy every lesson I do. Honestly, I would never have thought that making so many mistakes, while learning Italian, would be so rewarding, fun and inspiring. Learning Italian is one of the best decisions I have every made. I am studying la bella lingua with two, exceptional teachers at Italian Virtual School. Grazie mille a Silvia e Giuseppe. Voi sono meravigliosi, gli insegnanti eccellenti e gli amici carini.

It is amazing how fast is the progress with Italian by this method. Italian language is full of culture and rich.

The face-to-face on-line is 3 times faster than usual methods of learning.

The teacher is very good (and patient) and the book used as support I like a lot.

Thank you IVS team and keep on helping people to learn Italian!

My teacher, Benedetta, is really wonderful! She has been very flexible with hours, given the large time difference, always provides useful feedback and is very interesting to talk with. I would highly recommend the school itself as well - they've been very easy to work with and extremely responsive.

I have been taking lessons for three and a half years now with Silvia and my knowledge and confidence in the Italian language has grown greatly. Silvia is an excellent teacher with a very thorough knowledge of the language. I look forward to many more lessons with her on my road to fluency in the most beautiful language in the world. Grazie mille, Silvia.
