Italian for Foreigners


Learn Italian in Sulmona

Abruzzo is constantly growing as a tourist destination as more and more people fall in love with its history, culture, and nature. At Study Sulmona, we understand the pull that so many people feel to Abruzzo and the desire many have to move here. Perhaps people may be put off by a language barrier, however, this is where we can help! All of our teachers are passionate linguists who use their skills to help learners of all levels, from complete beginner to advanced speaker, improve and grow into confident Italian speakers.

    Meet the Teachers

    Valentina Di Girolamo

      Valentina is a young teacher who has always been fascinated by languages. After completing her first degree in Classical Studies (focusing on Ancient Greek and Latin), she went on to study English, gaining a Cambridge FCE B2 certificate in a short time. While studying for her English certificate, she also completed a DITALS II teaching course, which qualifies her to teach Italian to Foreigners. She has a Masters in Special Educational Needs (Disturbi Specifici dell’Apprendimento) and is also a trained professional Counsellor.

      I became a teacher because I truly enjoy being able to stimulate my students’ intelligence and curiosity. I watch as their passion ignites and they become independent learners, continuing on their journey using their own resources and abilities.


       I realise that many adults feel uncomfortable when they start learning a new language. After all, nobody likes to feel stupid. Therefore, I work hard to create a positive learning atmosphere and forge a strong bond with my learners. Students shouldn’t be afraid to make mistakes. Mistakes are proof we’re learning!


      I am a truly enthusiastic and motivated teacher. I approach even the most difficult situations with a sense of calm and clarity. I am dedicated to my students, finding joy and happiness in their successes.
