Fantastica esperienza Federica! Well balanced lessons and conversations, thank you for teaching a “not so young” student in facing my endeavours in rural Italy. E’ in gamba, as you would say, definitely recommending your tuition. I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Ciao Fede,
Thank you so much for the course, it was great. I do hope to do another course with you hopefully next year sometime as I would love to learn the language properly and be able to use it “fluently” eventually!

Tarryn, 2019

I am definitely joining the intermediate group next year. Thank you for everything, I had an awesome time in class and at all the other Lingo school events you arranged.  You are an awesome teacher and I’m so happy I bumped into you at the Italian Club Cheese Festival.

Ciao Fede! Come stai?I am packing already, on Sunday I travel to Milan! I am so excited!!!!I just wanted to write you to thank you again for all your patience, knowledge and fun during our classes.It was really much more than an Italian class, was a life class by Fede
You are a very energetic and creative person, there is always so much to learn with you that goes far beyond language…Hope we meet somewhere in this world someday!

Learning language doesn’t always have to be in a classroom. I had fun learning Via Skype.

Mega 2016

After not speaking much Italian in 20 years I am fortunate to have found someone like Fede who is a great teacher and makes it fun. She has brought a bit of Italy back into my life, grazie xx

Nicola, 2018

My daughter Victoria is loving her classes with you!. Thanks

Victoria, 2019

Fede is an amazing teacher and I have learnt so much from her in the short time that we have worked together! She cares for all her students and only wants the best for us!
Grazie mille !

Hi Federica,

I just wanted to convey to you, how much I actually enjoyed our Skype lessons weekly together. Your Manner of teaching is so Relaxed and Easy. You definitely put the fun back into Italian with your Endless Energy and Enthusiasm.
Appreciate too, the Patience you showed , especially with someone like me  who, 2nd Languages don’t come easy.
I will definitely be recommending LINGO ITALIAN SCHOOL to anyone who wants to learn Italian.

Mandy, 2019

Ciao Federica,

I would just like to thank you so much for putting together the Italian lessons, at the Italian Club.
You really made the lessons fun and interesting, and I have learnt a lot.
I now have more confidence for my next trip to Italy and I feel I will be able to get around much better than I did on my previous holiday. Grazie Mille!!

I started lessons at Lingo after visiting Italy, and really wished I had done so before! Fede is a passionate and energetic teacher. Her interactive lessons involve a lot of conversation, and apart from teaching the language itself she also gives insights into Italian cultural quirks, hand-gestures and expressions – definitely worth doing a course if you’re planning to visit Italy soon! Also for those who just want the fun of knowing some conversational Italian!

Atiya, 2017

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!

Caro, 2018


Thank you for all your fun filled classes.

Helen, 2017

Federica makes learning Italian interactive and fun. I highly recommend her classes for anyone wanting to learn this beautiful and expressive language.

Tracy, 2017

Thank you so very much for all your enthusiasm, initiatives and all the wonderful classes with you!

Karinina, 2017


I just want to say thank-you for an amazing fun class, and Fede for all the hard work and enthusiasm. Thanks so much for everything!

Kate 2015

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.

Grant, 2017


Ciao Fede! Tutto bene! Italia molto bellisima! Mangio pizza, pasta, pane, corneti. I am loving it! Using everything you taught me! Grazie mille.

Chiara 2015

A wonderfully relaxed atmosphere – perfect for learning something that can be daunting! Fede’s sense of humour ensures you find a fun way of remembering things and the opportunity to practice your pronunciation and spoken sentence structure is great 🙂 A lot of fun – which always makes you WANT to learn more

Che Milani, 2017

Thanks Fede for an entertaining first term with you. Looking forward to maintaining and improving my knowledge and accent.

Simon, 2016

Grazie, Fede for a fantastic experience learning Italian. I’m looking forward to continuing next year. Buone Feste!

Thank you for the great lessons and the effort you make in making it interesting for us to learn Italian!

Helen 2016

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.

Natalie M, 2016


You are so special: Italian remains the highlight of my week, even when I am looking grumpy and half asleep!

Peter 2014

Dear Fede, thanks so much for this last term. It has been great fun and good to get back on my Italian journey.

Emma N, 2017



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.

Derek 2013

Anna Flaig, 2016


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

Sam 2012

I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with Federica. She is an excellent teacher who makes the lessons a lot of fun. I highly recommend the Lingo Italian School for students of all levels.

Maria, 2017

Innovative, out the box, exciting new way of learning Italian. Federica not only teaches you the heart of the language -verbs, pronunciations and vocabulary but also the soul of Italian – traditions, nuances and the very essence that makes Italian the language you want to learn PRONTO”

Nadia 2011

Ciao Fede
I trust you are doing well. It has been a great pleasure doing classes for a while with Lingo and you are one of the best teachers I’ve come across.


Moeketsi 2016

I really appreciated Fede’s teaching style. I think the relaxed atmosphere she creates and emphasis on speaking and pronunciation (rather than spelling/writing), as well as ensuring each student speaks every lesson, is a great way to be introduced to learning the Italian language and makes it fun and exciting rather than overwhelming. Grazie Fede!

Lara K, 2017

You are great and your classes are wonderful. Keep going, you make such a difference in people’s lives. Its beautiful to experience.


Andrea 2016

Ciao Fede, Volevo solo dire grazie mille per tutto quest’anno, sei una persona speciale, e un insegnante dedicata! Apprezzo quello che fai per me, grazie Fede.

Kevino 2012


I have heard you are the best Italian teacher in town so I don’t want to miss you!!

Pauline 2012

Grazie per la lezione. Mi è piaciuto! (had to look that one up). I love the manner in which you bring the Italian language to us.

Eric 2014



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!

Paddy 2014


I’m truly grateful for everything that you have taught me thus far, as I know without you, I would not have wanted to learn this much.You’ve provided the necessary tools for me to “quasi” communicate with other Italians on a level that they may not think I’m retarded.Your motivation, drive and determination, combined with patience has really helped me so much, and made me want to succeed. Thank you.

Juanita 2013


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.
