Two months ago I knew very little Italian, but now I am ready for my first visit to Italy. The confidence and knowledge I have gained in such a short time is down to the tutoring skills and organised approach of Ermy. Communicating with a native speaker was a great advantage, but the enthusiastic and bubbly personality of Ermy was the key ingredient in building my speaking confidence. Mille grazie, Ermy” – GRAHAM COTTS

Thanks so much for a great four weeks of lessons, I was pleased with my progress and felt happy that I was confident enough to try out my language skills when away! I tried to use my Italian wherever I could. However, I was pleased with myself for using it as much as I did, and I enjoyed saying ‘Piacere’ to the people I met.” –REBECCA ALCOCK 

“I have been on an Italian learners course at a college before but learnt so much more with Ermy. Best of all we had fun!” – SUE HAYGARTH
