Who is Federica?

December 29th, 2015 nicole

Federica Marchesini, originally from Verona – the Italian city of Romeo and Juliette, has been living in Cape Town for 18 years. She has a twin sister who lives in the UK. The rest of her family is still in Verona – which she visits annually.

Federica founded her own language school “LINGO” in Cape Town in 2007 after being a language student herself for quite a few years. Federica decided to create an unconventional way of learning/teaching where fun and conversation are more important than grammar.

Federica speaks Italian, English, French, Spanish and German.

Federica is a very creative person. When she’s not teaching languages, she writes; she collects words and expressions she particularly likes; she makes all types of creative things with her hands (birthday cards, lamps, decos) and she entertains – a lot!

I Love Italy

Federica loves bringing the Italian community in Cape Town together and is often organising cultural events.

Even though Federica is Italian, she is not famous for her culinary skills. Yet, her “risotto con la salsiccia” seems to be a hit, even for her “fussy” Italian friends.

The Lingo Way

November 26th, 2015 nicole

The Lingo Way is the way we teach at Lingo School

No matter what language you choose, we want you to have fun and learn in an easy, practical and flexible manner.

Our method is based on teaching a combination of learning skills. The Lingo Way encourages you to learn with the teacher and on your own, turning a language experience into a lifestyle where surviving in everyday situations is more important than grammar.

Here a taste of what and how you will learn Italian at Lingo
