What the students of ‘Italian on the Couch’ say about me

I miei allievi dicono di me
I have started learning Italian with Federica several years ago and I understood the big difference with other teachers: she knows how to help me speak. I enjoyed the process of learning and the result of that.

Cosa dicono i miei studenti di me
Federica is wonderful. She is patient, engaging, accessible and endlessly positive. I would enthusiastically recommend this method for learning Italian.
Deborah- California
Italian on the couch was one of my best decisions this year. Your method is perfect for me. Thank you so much for all the lessons, especially for taking away my fear of speaking.
Thomas - Germany
Federica is an outstanding teacher of the Italian language. Not only by her knowledge of the language itself but also her passion and skill in making you want to learn. She always turns up with the biggest smile and it’s a happy lesson every time. I couldn’t recommend her enough for anyone who wants to learn Italian.
Else-Marie - Great Britain
I want to say a big thank you to Federica for her lessons! I studied Italian with her for almost two years. During this time, my level of language proficiency has grown significantly. It helped me a lot to overcome the language barrier, communicate with native speakers, watch movies.. And all this is thanks to Federica's high-quality methodology and approach!

About me and Italian on the Couch

My name is Federica, I live in a little seaside town in central Italy and have been teaching Italian for over 15 years. Every day I share this passion with my students around the world and we do our online Italian lessons as easily and comfortably as chatting on the couch.

Together, we overcome the uncertainty and doubt that come with learning a new language. As you learn to express yourself more, we share the pleasure of speaking and learning about the wonders of Italian culture and life.


And learning to speak Italian is easy and fun, together!

From classrooms in Bologna to couches everywhere

I started teaching in the traditional way: in a classroom with my students.

I have taught in many private schools, I’ve worked with Bologna University and run Italian courses at John Hopkins University in Bologna.

All this experience gave me a solid base for creating my own teaching method.


But I wanted to reach more people around the world, so about 10 years ago I went to Japan to promote my online courses. From then I had this new project in mind: to reach as more couches as possible in the world and help people discover the beauty of the Italian language and culture, the lifestyle, the food, the beaches and green hills, even sharing the pleasure of a good coffee together
