Quiz time:

  • Have you ever learned a language in a packed (and boring!) class and felt you were going soooo slowly (or so quickly)?

  • Do you ever think that Duolingo is a cool way to learn a language but you’d definitely skip the animals unit because it’s not what you need to talk about when you’re on your next trip to Italy?

  • Do you ever get that pit in your stomach that makes your face go pink, whilst thinking “I don’t have the words to say this” in the middle of a conversation with your Spanish speaker friend?

If your answer is ‘yes’ to any of the above questions I got the solution for you.

I have created a programme. It’s called Personal Learning Programme.

And the reason why is called “Personal” is that the curriculum of this course is created just for a learner like you and according to your own needs (no standardized stuff!). And the “Learning” bit is about learning the language you love in a way that works for you. And, more importantly, in a way that doesn’t let the fear of making mistakes preventing you from becoming the confident and fluent speaker you’ve always desired to be.


…you want a trip abroad where you are no longer a tourist but a keen and confident traveller.
…You want a trip abroad that is filled not only with amazing views but also with interesting conversations that feed you mind and soul.
…You want a trip abroad during which you can truly connect to people of a differen culture by speaking confidently the language you love
…You want a trip abroad during which you can create the memories and the friendships of life time.

The Personal  Learning Programme is for you.

This is not a standardised language course with a ready made curriculum. It’s a course where you create your own curriculum so that you learn what you really need.

These are not language classes that you need to attend at a set time and date every week. These are one to one learning sessions that you schedule at your own convenience (because I know you have a busy schedule!).

This is not a language course that makes you learn a language. This is a programme that enables you to speak the language from day 1, packed with self study activities that will get you out of your comfort zone and become a confident speaker of Italian, Spanish,French or English.

The Personal Learning Programme is the “language course” that you have always desired to take and you thought it didn’t exist.

This is an invitation to create your own language course, so that you’ll be able to learn (and speak!) either Italian, Spanish, French or English in a way that is suitable to your schedule and relevant to you.

The Personal Learning Programme is available now at a discounted price until October 15th

Now, you may think you are not ready to invest your time or your money in this programme.

The truth is, no one is ready until they decide to be ready. And, I’m aware that especially if you are a student, you need to be mindful about the money you are spending. But, for a matter of fact, I also know that when you invest in yourself like you’d do with this programme, your motivation to succeed increase and you’ll achieve your goal.

So, if not now, when?

Because, here is the best part: the programme is not only available here at a discounted price, but I am also offering a scholarship that will allow you to take this programme completely for free (and you are also free to choose the programme plan too, either plan 1 or plan 2).

Entries for this scholarship close on October 15th at 11AM (London time) so make sure you do it now!

    – Is there other languages, specifically Croatian?

    Hello Ermy!! Here is my entry: I have always been enamoured with all things Italian !! I started to learn Italian at school but forgot mostly all of it! I work as a hotel receptionist and two of my best friends are Italian too. Learning Italian would help me in my job but also in my social life. It’s something I really would like to do because I love the language!!
    I’ll share your post on instagram.Grazie!! 😉

    Hi Ermy. My goal is to learn to speak Spanish. I work as a refugee support worker with Spanish speaking refugees. Being able to speak Spanish fluently will enable me to communicate with the refugees effectively, help me to understand them and their culture more, and help the refugees to settle and feel at home and welcome in their new country. I shared the scholarship on Facebook, Linkedln, Pinterest and Google+.

    Dear Ermy, I’ve shared your scholarship on Facebook. My husband is from Spain. I have always wanted to learn to Spanish to communicate with my husband’s family.i have tried to do it myself (bought also the book “Spanish for dummies”)but it has been hard to keep husband and I both lead a busy life,so it’s difficult to learn Spanish with him too or to practise together…I really want to this now because on Christmas we are going to Spain for two weeks and I am hoping to learn some more Spanish to communicate with his family. I think your programme can help me. Thanks for this , Angy
