THE FRAMEWORK

VISUALIZE, IMMERSE, SPEAK


Visualize. Your goals. Short and long-term.

Immerse. Use the language to connect with the people from Italy. You can learn to understand cultures and countries through language, the main way to build relationships.

Speak. Throwing yourself out there is essential. Speaking and breaking the barrier of fear will get you miles and miles beyond your goals.

It's a mindset that we're creating around the program. And with this, you will FLY.

THE USE

REAL WORLD APPLICATION


It is not just about grammar. Often, the biggest challenges is getting to conversations and feeling you are blocked. Frozen. One of the main goals when progressing as beginner, is to not be scared of speaking and making mistakes. This is an essential factor that will get you to that intermediate level.

The program uses different kind of activities, which help immerse yourself in the language and the culture.

It involves both "passive learning activities", such as listening and reading, and "active learning activities", such as speaking and writing.

THE LONG-TERM Why

PERSONAL GROWTH


I hope you are thrilled to take a step towards the future and life you want to create.

Shape that reality that you desire. Learning a language is a life skill that can give you extra opportunities.

Whether it is exploring the world, being an expat, or being able to connect in your international relationships.

"At first I was wary about Italian, learning a language is definitely a big thing to get into, but now I'm much more confident in the language, and less nervous about having to try and speak in Italian.

There's a lot of support and encouragement in the program, so don't be worried about getting started, the first step is the biggest one!

With Robin, I was able to work at my own pace on her course online, and then have online sessions tailored to whatever I needed in particular!"

"Great teacher! With a wonderful methodology and attitude, I learned Italian from scratch and today I feel comfortable in conversation. I'm having fun learning with Robin. Thank you very much!"

"I was feeling unsure which was the best learning style for me and this was definitely it. I was hoping to start learning basic Italian and this course helped me to learn way faster than expected and also made it really fun and interesting!"

"I am now able to read simple texts, have basic conversations and to watch TV in Italian and understand what they are saying. I liked that it makes you get completely immersed in the language without feeling overwhelming. I loved suddenly noticing that I knew more than I thought."

Do you want to finally be able to communicate with your Italian relatives, make new friends and interact with the locals?

Here are your options:

1.Do twice a week lessons for around 5 months, at that pace, to reach an A2 level, paying ca. 30/hr -- $60 x4 x 5= ca. US$1,400 OR

2. Learn Italian with M-THU support through direct coaching access to defeat any barriers + full-immersion techniques + a method to guide you to success and enable you to master the basics and reach confidence in the first 30 days. And so you can achieve that confident beginner level in 2-3 months for HALF the price AND time!

This is NOT for you if

You want to advance without having to put some work and effort into it

You're an intermediate or advanced Italian learner who is already confident in their language skills. This program is not for you but please drop me a line and I help you with what you need.

You don't care about immersing yourself ina culture and making connections with people or communities from different backgrounds around the world, or even just in your city

By the way, CIAO!

As a travel addict with a passion for connections, languages and creating opportunities, I had to find a way to help others in their language journey. Speaking and learning four languages has taught me the journey to fluency inside out. 

I have had good and bad teachers, who showed me how to inspire and what not to do. I know how important it is to interact with the language, stay motivated and enjoy the process. The latter is so important to stay consistent and motivated. 

After tutoring for six years I have decided to create this online immersion program and I am so so proud of the 14 students who graduate between June and December of 2022. You'll know soon...I LOVE my students, I'm just so proud of their progress and their journeys! 

My goal is not just fluency - I want you to feel confident, happy and fulfilled. You deserve to be that badass explorer you aspire to, wherever you are or will be! 

I truly believe languages open worlds, doors and souls and this is why I hope to help you find those everyday joys in your next trip or home away from home - the joys given by being able to connect deeper with others, nature and yourself. 

To your next adventure and Italian journey!🥂

Frequently Asked Questions

FOREVER! You'll have lifetime access. So, if I update or add material you will get access to that too! You have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own. Cool, eh?

Yes, I am and so are all the co-coaches!

This is built for those with a busy schedule . Life is always busy so this program was born to also help with that: learning to manage the time and busy schedules to achieve your goals. The course is effective and will save you countless hours trying to figure out things on your own.   Plus, with downloadable materials and lifetime access, you can review the material on your own terms.

Studies show we actually make the fastest progress when we devote between 30 minutes to 1 hour of study to a topic each day. Spoiler alert: people who become fluent in languages simply found a way to be consistent and this course helps you with that.

As soon as the enrolment period is over in June! You will have access to the online community immediately too. If there is any particular reason you need to start the course early, contact me and I see what can be done.

I suggest to use Duolingo and other language apps as added resources in your journey. But these are tools for when you've got plenty of time on your hands and don’t have any specific language goals that you’re working towards. Have you seen the sentences that come up in some of those apps, like "La tortuga bebe leche" [The turtle drinks milk], and so on?

What Duolingo doesn’t give you is a clear roadmap to learning Italian and customized support. With this course, you also get access to a private community and direct access to me (your teacher) where you can ask for feedback and receive extra support throughout the program.

YES! The price is shown in USD (American Dollars), but you can pay from wherever you are located.
