Quote Icon Italian for Fun in Greenwich and Blackheath

Welcome to Language for Fun and Italian for Fun in Greenwich and Blackheath. We are a small, locally run language school and we pride ourselves on the personal approach. When you enquire about learning Italian with us,we talk to you personally and help you choose the best course, from Italian beginners to Italian Improvers or Advanced Italian. We won't just make you sign up online and take your money in advance - we'll let you pay for just one class and then you can decide if you want to carry on.

Our Italian courses in Blackheath and Greenwich are run in groups that are much smaller than other colleges. We have a highly structured curriculum which has been specifically designed for adult learners who want to learn Italian for fun as a hobby, and we focus on speaking and communication skills. You don't have to do homework unless you want to, and we are convinced that making friends and enjoying the social side is just as important as the progress you make.

Many of our groups end up as long term friends.

Our Italian Beginners course is perfect if you've never done any Italian before, but there are also the right courses for those who have done GCSE Italian or (O Level of course) and need to dust it off a bit! We go right through with our own bespoke curriculum to Advanced and beyond so there's something for you even if you are a hardened Italian speaker and want some advanced Italian conversation classes.

If you can't find the exact Italian lessons you want advertised on our course listings, do get in touch as we have waiting lists for the less popular courses and also some availability for private Italian classes.

I'm really proud of our local Blackheath and Greenwich business and I look forward to hearing from you in the hope that we can be a part of your Italian speaking journey!

Ciao a tutti! I am a native Italian who has always been passionate about languages and travelling and I do believe that being able to speak the language of the place you are visiting makes the whole experience much richer, more authentic and fun.
I started learning English at primary school and went on to studying French and German at high school and then graduated in English and Spanish (language and literature) at university whilst moving to live in London where I have been for the past 16 years. I also left my comfort zone of European languages and attended an Arabic course, which was very interesting and fun, but challenging! Thanks to this course, I know what it means to start a language journey as a beginner!
My experience in teaching ranges from schoolchildren needing a hand with their homework, to university students struggling to pass their exams, to older people wanting to learn or improve a language for business or leisure. Regardless of their age and purpose for learning a language, I always encouraged my students to go beyond the textbooks and grammar exercises, and to have fun communicating. Grammar rules are necessary, but useless if you are afraid to communicate, so don't be shy and let's get talking!

After finishing High School in the small city where I was born in the North-East of Italy, my desire to leave and discover the world was huge. The first step toward this discovery was moving to Venice, where I studied Languages, Civilizations and Science of Language. These studies raised my knowledge about specific processes regarding language learning and teaching.
During my experiences abroad (in Spain and in the USA), I put into practice this knowledge by teaching Italian and English both to children and adults. Those experiences gave me the chance to appreciate the Italian culture even more and let people know that it is more than a ‘pizza’ and ‘ciao bella’.
When I moved to London to complete my Masters degree in Sociocultural Linguistics, I knew I wanted to continue to transmit Italian language and culture. I believe that teaching is an exchange: the tutor and the student, as equals, have equal amounts to share and learn from each other. I love the way that classes at Language for Fun are designed to guide people through the discovery of language in a lively, active and funny way. With this vision in mind, the message I always try to transmit is that language is the most powerful tool that we have and that learning and speaking a different language is a bit like opening your mind to new worlds and new possibilities. I hope you join me on this journey.
