Exam Preparation

"Very pleased with the 'one-to-one' classes that I am attending, which are acting as extra support alongside my main Italian course.  Tailored classes suited to my individual requirements. I have no problem recommending Carmela! (Carla)

Advanced Class

"Carmela is a very creative tutor who brings the Italian language to life using a wide range of tools and teaching aids. She is very adept at matching the skill levels and needs of her students to the resources available. Having been taught by Carmela, I particularly appreciate the way in which she gently encourages her students to practice and develop their understanding, not just of the language but also of the Italian culture. She has a warm sense of humour and her classes always provide a fun and relaxed environment in which to learn la bella lingua." (Glen)

Group Tuition

“La signora Carmela Robson has come to our country via Naples and has learnt our language, has married and has a family and also qualified to teach us, English people, the delights of her bella lingua italiana.

Carmela covers a lot of topics to keep the lessons interesting and when I visit Italy I can understand, speak and listen and learn which makes the visit much more enjoyable to converse with locals. Learning a language keeps our mind motivated so full credit to Carmela for her teaching manner. I’ve still a long way to go but enjoy my weekly lessons, Carmela encourages us to do homework and build a little Italian into our everyday lives.” (Katie T.)

One-to-one Tuition

After spending a couple of enjoyable holidays in Italy, I decided that for future visits it would be a good idea to learn something of the language. I found Carmela from the internet and arranged for tuition in anticipation of a holiday to Florence and Viareggio.In only three months I was able to ac complish such basic tasks as shopping, asking directions, ordering at cafés and restaurants and finding our way around the public transport system (mainly the railways). I even managed a few short conversations. The lessons also covered the beginnings of Italian grammar and numeracy. After returning from Florence I was so happy with my progress that I have now resumed tuition, but this time structured towards grammar and conversation. I am amazed at the progress I have made in only 10 months and would not hesitate to recommend Carmela to anyone wishing to learn Italian from scratch or to anyone wishing to improve their existing Italian language skills.

Italian for Holiday Course

With a desire to grasp the basics of the Italian language and simply be able to get what I want from friendly Italians, the course of 5x2 hour lessons in the company of five similarly minded English people was both well presented and expertly managed by Carmela.  I'd recommend anybody who wishes to learn the Italian way to give Carmela a call. (Paul)
I was able to learn Italian in a relaxed and entertaining setting- Full credit to the tutor (Sean)
Thank you very much for the course, Carmela. I have thoroughly enjoyed it. You have created a relaxed, supportive and un environment in which we could learn. Grazie. (Sue)
Excellent preparation for an Italian Holiday. (Geoff)
I have very much enjoyed this course and I will return for more lessons. (Veronica)

Thank you so much for a very enjoyable evening on Friday.

I really enjoyed all the activities, with the support and encouragement of the other Rossi family members! The refreshments were delicious and obviously served to keep us all well motivated and on-task to solve those tricky clues. I look forward to your next Italian social event when you have the time and energy to organise another one. With best wishes (Margaret).
