I have spoken Italian for years, but needed to clean up certain small but pesky blemishes attributable to both senescence and to cugini italiani who haven’t corrected me enough over the decades. Carlos Capra was the ideal instructor for the job. His lucid explanations, abundant examples, apt worksheets, ear for detail, and recommendations of outside texts and web sites helped me immensely. Moreover, he has the patience of Buddha. Prospective students, I doubt that you have a linguistic need he cannot meet. Grazie, Carlos.
