May I help you?
I am a Language educator and NeuroLanguage Coach®.
I have been teaching the Italian language to foreigners for more than 10 years. I have worked with clients from many different countries both abroad and in Italy, where I currently reside.
I am a certified Italian teacher from the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice (I have the CEDILS and CEFILS certifications) and I completed my Master’s degree in E-learning for teaching Italian to foreigners (E-learning per l’insegnamento dell’italiano a stranieri) at the University of Siena with 60/60 and honours.
In 2019 I decided to sharpen my professional skills becoming a Professional NeuroLanguage Coach®. This new learning approach is based on a method created by Rachel Marie Paling and accredited by the ICF (International Coach Federation).
As a NeuroLanguage Coach® I combine Language training with Coaching and Neuroscience. These are the main principles that I follow:
You decide how to learn: you find your motivation, set your language goals and learning style.
You identify your objectives (SMART goals) and decide your preferred actions and the pace to achieve them.
Brain friendly learning
You boost your communication and grammar through brain-friendly conversations with me.
Elisabetta’s F&C Program was nothing short of amazing. With exceptional, detailed written materials and a teaching methodology designed to boost confidence while speaking, I took the book learning and put it into practice, thanks to the class! It was a huge value.
I would highly recommend the F&C program and Elisabetta in general as an Italian language coach. She is thoroughly committed to helping her students, very knowledgeable, speaks Italian beautifully, which makes it easier to comprehend, and seems to really understand that learning a language is as much about confidence and feeling comfortable as it is about knowledge of grammar.
Eli’s “space” is a safe one in which your knowledge of Italian will grow exponentially, and with it, your confidence. As an added bonus, you’ll make some great new friends along the way!
Eli gave me the confidence to feel sure of myself and I would recommend her as a language coach. This was the boost I really needed. She has an easy manner in her teaching which allows you to feel relaxed which encourages you to keep trying to express yourself.

Thanks to her high-level of knowledge of Spanish, it helped me to be able to avoid the typical mistakes that Spanish speakers do when learning Italian. I would have never achieved my current Italian language level without her.
If today I speak with my colleagues and friends in Italian it is only thanks to Elisabetta. There are few professors who manage to teach with a smile and passion. She is among them.
She has definitely given me the confidence I needed to start using this beautiful language. Her tips on brain connections and neuroplasticity encouraged me not to give up learning when it became a challenge.
Attending Italian courses with Elisabetta gave me enough confidence in order to use Italian in my routine daily conversation and even in my workplace. Her ability of connecting with her students and supporting them is exemplary.
In the beginning, every time people spoke Italian around me, I couldn’t understand a word. A couple of months in, I was able to express my thoughts and communicate with native speakers.
Before I met her, I was afraid to speak, I couldn’t say one word in Italian, thanks to her, I am not afraid anymore.

Together we managed to arrive to an advanced level and already few months later I felt confident enough to even use Italian in professional meetings on a daily basis.
If I now know Italian, I have a safe job and I have friends, I owe it to Elisabetta and her job as a teacher of Italian for foreigners. I have always said and will always say that I will always be grateful for what she has done for me. If you want to learn Italian, trust her: she knows what she has to do and you will make progress immediately.
