CAN I REALLY LEARN ITALIAN?
I wanted to learn Italian when I learned a project we were doing meant travel to Italy at least twice a year. I found Carlos from his website and am still taking lessons with him 3 years later! I would say I’m intermediate to advanced in my Italian conversation skills thanks to Carlos. My new friends in Italy commend me on my speaking and he’s always game to help me whenever I need it. I recommend Carlos to everyone. Ciao!
I have been fortunate to have some great teachers in my life, school teachers, yoga teachers, teachers in meditation or skiing or music. Carlos Capra ranks among the best of them, in that his instruction of the Italian language goes beyond the technicalities, or grammar, but his presence inspires you to want to learn. His is patient, methodical but intuitive in his approach; he clearly has a lot of experience in that he can adjust his instruction to the level and background of the student.
I highly recommend him, you will learn Italian quickly and efficiently and have fun in the process.
I worked with Carlos for just three months and my communications skills improved dramatically. Carlos is both a great teacher and a fun person to learn a language with. I recommend him with great confidence to anyone looking to learn a new language.
We were heading to Tuscany with Lauren’s family for an extended stay and really wanted to be able to learn some simple phrases and social niceties. Carlos developed a custom curriculum that was tailored to the activities we were planning to spend our vacation on: ordering food at restaurants, shopping at the grocery store and open air markets, shopping for clothes and gifts, asking for directions and, of course, buying lots and lots of wine! Very soon after arriving we were the unofficial translators for our group and realized that the basics Carlos taught us were the perfect base to build on during our trip. Near the end we felt almost like locals as we shopped and ate our way through Tuscany. Thanks Carlos!!
