If any of these descriptions sound familiar and you are ready to take up the challenge of learning a language,

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.
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.
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.

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!🥂

The course follows a process exposing yourself to the language, using daily challenges to immerse yourself in the language and allowing you to easily talk with Italian speakers. You’ll be able to hold real basic conversations and feel comfortable doing so!
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!
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. The daily challenges for 30 days easily fit your schedule. You can complete the course at your own pace within the 60 days and it will probably take you around 40 days if you stay consistent with the lessons every day.
Studies show we actually make the fastest progress when we devote between 30 minutes to 1 hour of study each day. Spoiler alert: people who become fluent in languages simply found a way to be consistent and this course helps you with that.
Tutoring requires you to meet once or twice a week at specific times. You will progress BUT more slowly because you are missing the DAILY exercise and accountability, that also helps you reach that independence in the language because you made a habit out of it. With this course you are getting the support (for 60 to 90 days!) and the daily language work and accountability you need to achieve results faster and creating a strong foundation and language approach. Plus, it is a THIRD of what you would pay to have weekly tutor Zoom calls, but still getting the human and personalized touch through Slack support and the bi-weekly Live sessions.
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 the roadmap, 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. Language apps are an added resource for this journey, or to be used when you’ve plenty of time or no specific goal in mind.
YES! As you can see from my other students. This course was sold out in 2022 to the point that we grew it to welcome more students this year. You can do it. You can become fluent. You can master the basics and start speaking with more confidence in 30 days and you can reach the advanced beginner level in 2 months. You have to put the work in, but you will be rewarded. The key is consistency, practicing, clear guidance and having someone to practice with and ask questions to. This is why this program offers all of this - to set you up for success and achieve your language goals!
As soon as you sign up for Il Dolce Vivere, you can access the curriculum immediately and you’ll receive an email with all the onboarding information including how to access the support channel where we will hang out all together every week for the next couple of months (I’m so excited to welcome you!).
I suggest starting module 1, of introduction, on a weekend and then start with the 30 days challenges on a Monday to keep track easily. Try to do one lessons a day, as it best fits your schedule too. BUT don't stress, if a day you are busier or away - do only a challenge instead (they are fast, take up to 10min). Aim to finish the curriculum within 45 days to keep it consistent, but NEVER stress about it. If you need help or you are stuck, use the weekly Mon-Thu support channel for that too. Robin and her team are there to help you and make sure your learning experience is smooth. Also, make sure you use the channel during the two months for questions, doubts, sharing challenge homework, wins and anything happening in your beautiful journey!
Ps. Once you are in, you have lifetime access to the course material and any updates.
YES! The price is shown in USD (American Dollars), but you can pay from wherever you are located.
