I feel that learning in general and learning a foreign language in particular is about repetition and I ask my students to repeat everything I teach over and over again until they know it by heart. I keep my lessons simple to avoid overwhelming the students and to allow time for them to repeat what they learned earlier. I teach the words that form part of the so called core vocabulary; words that are chosen according to frequency and range (in the sense that they “occur across a wide variety of texts”) It is often said that the first 2000 most frequent words cover approximately 90% of the vocabulary used by native-speakers in daily conversations. This means that for a student they represent the basic resource to be able to communicate.

Ciao/ Hello! My name is Francesca. I was born and raised in Italy. I have been teaching Italian since 2008 at levels ranging from beginner to advanced and to all ages. My lessons are fun, dynamic, and flexible. They intended to develop speaking, listening, writing and reading skills and offer fun conversation on a variety of topics. Students learn the language through practical examples of daily life situations. Each lesson can be tailored to the students’ needs. I have also tailored my lessons for students that want to learn the Italian language for traveling purposes. Learning a language goes hand in hand with understanding the culture. My lessons are focused on using the Italian culture to provide the setting that helps the students learn the language and feel comfortable and confident when speaking to native Italian speaking persons.

I've been taking Italian with Francesca for a long time, 5 years now, She's great at building confidence and keeping lessons fun, she encourages you in activities that improve
conversation, writing and reading skills.
I have learned so much in her classes and I can tell you with confidence that I speak Italian fluently.
I recommend her highly.

Amazing teacher and love the class (and classmates)! Taking her classes for a few years now. Mix of daily conversations, grammar, and common Italian expressions...that we can actually use!
Erta
I would highly recommend Francesca Bruni as an Italian teacher! She has been my Italian teacher for a number of years! Her ability to instruct vocabulary, grammar and comprehension all woven together with themes of Italian culture has provided me with a rapid acquisition of essential and enjoyable conversation skills. Not only are Francesca’s instructional materials relevant and engaging, but whether presented in an in-person manner or online virtual setting, allow for a highly successful experience. You will be amazed at how quickly you will become a fluent Italian speaker, reader, and writer!

"I took lessons with Sabrina over several years in small group settings. She always made the meetings fun and addressed the group's individual needs. She was always prepared with great ideas. Sabrina gave me confidence to engage in conversation in Italy on my early trips and then helped me prepare for a 2-week course at a language school in Italy. I was able to get into one of the more advanced classes, thanks in large part to Sabrina's tutoring. I was sad to move away from Sabrina's location and the opportunity for classes but am happy to see the online option."

"I have known and worked with Cindy for well over a year to sharpen/maintain speaking skills and to improve my writing. Prior to Covid, we met weekly in a bookstore cafe and during 2020 we have continued via Zoom. As I have been a student of Italian for quite some time, we simply jumped in at an advanced level. Her everyday awareness of spoken Italian is a perfect way to achieve my goals. We have kept the meetings informal and conversational, with homework that varies from text book segments to writing letters to just having conversations about everyday things. I know Cindy also provides a more structured set of lessons and has worked with students of all ages. The best "testimonial" I can give is that I plan to continue to work with Cindy. Any questions, feel free to send me an e-mail."
