⭐️ Short Stories ⭐️

“Two months ago I knew very little Italian, but now I am ready for my first visit to Italy.”

“If you enjoy doing something, then you are more motivated to achieve your expectations and goals. I have achieved my learning goals and had fun thanks to Ermy. Two months ago I knew very little Italian, but now I am ready for my first visit to Italy.  I am sure that my travel experience will be enhanced considerably by being able to converse in the native language. The confidence and knowledge I have gained in such a short time is down to the skills and organised approach of Ermy. Key to the process was the initial discovery session. From that, Ermy designed a specific learning plan geared to meet my learning expectations and language capability.  Whilst the programme provided the learning framework, there was also the flexibility to cover topics not necessarily planned at the outset. The most beneficial, and indeed enjoyable part of the course, were the role play sessions. 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 to Ermy I have a much better understanding of the language and my confidence has sky rocketed.”

“Ermy’s way of explaining the verb endings and the reasons why you would use different tenses really made an impact on me. I now have so much more confidence and fluidity when speaking and have a much greater understanding of it all. Her calm and fun approach made me enjoy the lessons and learn so much. Thank you Ermy.” – ALAN BAXTER

“I figured out conversation topics that personally apply to me.”

“The main obstacle that prevented me from learning a language was not really knowing where to start. In the session with Ermy, I thought it was super smart to nail down conversation topics that personally apply to me. So, rather than sticking to random phrases given by an app, we figured out vocabulary words for things I actually do… like watercolors, knitting, writing blog posts. Having someone working with you to pursue your personal language learning goals is invaluable. AMANDA SUE HOWELL

“I’ve been on an Italian course at a college before but I’ve learnt so much more with Ermy.”

“Ermy is a great teacher. She plans her lessons in great detail and has a great way of making them fun by introducing ways to remember words and phrases either through games, role play or diagrams. She manages to cover a whole range of subjects and scenarios but is also able to build in flexibility and answer questions whenever they arise. She has energy and enthusiasm and clearly loves being able to tutor others. I have been on an Italian learners course at a college before but learnt so much more with Ermy. Her English is first class and her understanding of grammar and all its nuances makes learning another language so much more straightforward to understand and therefore remember. Best of all we had fun!” SUE HAYGARTH

❤️ More Students’ Love Notes ❤️

“Thanks so much for a great four weeks of learning, 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. 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

“The short time we have spent together you have given me lots of confidence and for that I thank you very much.”   JOHN CRADDOCK

I seemed to be circling round and round not progressing until I started learning with Ermy. The sessions were fun, intensive and very well planned. I would recommend Language Rose to everyone!” – NICK JAMES

Ermy’s resources have brought out my “learning superpowers”!  The inputs to learn solo helped me a lot. I could learn Italian faster thanks to the flashcards on Quizlet which featured high frequency words, so they were of great help to read Italian as well as understand daily conversational Italian.” – SRINIVAS RAO

“It was only a hour but the session was so well structured that I learned more than I could imagine. Thank you!” – AINOA CESAR
