What our students are saying


Whether you’re a complete beginner, or looking to improve your Italian, the very colourful Fede has a way of handling her students so everyone feels comfortable, yet challenged, but happy and laughing at all times. It’s such a fun environment, and her methods and stories really work. You become very close to your group, and I can really recommend Lingo school for anyone. Grazie mille Fede!

Cara Federica, 10 lezioni e 2 settimane sono volate in un baleno!La nostra conoscenza dell’inglese era elementare anche se qualcuno di noi  l’aveva studiato anche a scuola, ma il tempo passa… Abbiamo piacevolmente appreso tante espressioni e modi di dire nuovi che ci hanno incuriosito. Le lezioni si sono svolte in una atmosfera di entusiasmo corale ed “i compiti a casa” ci hanno spesso invogliato durante la giornata a ripetere quanto avevamo appreso la mattina. Sicuramente un metodo d’insegnamento moderno che accresce il piacere di conoscere una lingua così diffusa nel mondo. Un’esperienza che grazie a te consigliamo vivamente!!!!!!!! Un abbraccio

My love for the Italian language started when I received a scholarship to study for 6 months in Bologna, Italy. After returning home to SA I wanted to keep this passion alive, as well as to retain the little bit of Italian I picked up during my stay abroad. I therefore sought out Federica, who was the perfect teacher. She is passionate about her work, and has a clear love for language,literature, and teaching. Fede’s classes were practical, fun, and engaging. As students we enjoyed doing our homework as we could clearly see progress being made. I never felt that discouraged, and Fede continually motivated and encouraged me to study harder and to keep practising.

I enjoyed my lessons with Federica. She is a wonderful teacher and excellent writer. It allowed me to get in contact with my Italian family. To learn an additional language opens your world so much more. Well done Fede, I wish you only the best.

Le lezioni di Inglese con Federica mi hanno aiutato molto appena arrivata in città! Sono lezioni dinamiche, diversificate, ho rispolverato la grammatica e iniziato ad imparare le particolarità de “l’Inglese Sud Africano”…impossibile annoiarsi!!

Dear Federica, I really enjoyed yesterday evening’s class and found your practical conversational approach very valuable. Thank you. Penso che tu offri un’ approccio unico allo studio della lingua!

I am really glad that I spotted your website earlier this year – it’s been such a pleasure learning Italian especially the way you teach it – in such an engaging and fun way, but also constructively. So that one indeed learns to understand the language.

Il mio riscontro sul corso di inglese con Federica e’ assolutamente positivo. Io sono italiana, e uso l’inglese per motivi di lavoro (relazioni commerciali con clienti). Ho sentito il bisogno di migliorare sia il mio livello di conversazione che di comprensione, oltre a voler acquisire una modalità di comunicazione più smart, meno da italiana che traduce in modo letterale ... “Actually” sulla base della mia esperienza diretta mi sento di consigliare un corso di inglese con Federica, soprattutto per chi ha necessità di migliorare l’inglese in modo concreto in breve tempo. Grazie Federica!

I am THOROUGHLY enjoying our class – what a great group of people and most importantly what a GREAT teacher!!!

On behalf of the Cape Royale team, we would like to convey our gratitude towards the Cape Royale hotel for this great opportunity that was given to us. Amongst others, Miss Federica and the HR team from Cape Royale. Miss Frederica, you have been fantastic with us and always been patient, to the very last lesson. We can now have a conversation with our Italian guests and it really feels great. We really have all the respect and love for you. You have been with us from the very first lesson. You are a good person with a kind heart and we hope to see you again in the future. You truly have made a difference in our lives. Go well, and don’t forget about us.
