The best Italian and Sicilian on Italki!
italki teacher since Apr 1, 2022
☀️ Hi everyone and nice to meet you, I'm Antonio and I'm 28 years old.
I'm a native Italian and Sicilian speaker and I've been passionate about languages since I'm a child. During my life I had the chance to study different languages such as English 🇺🇸, Spanish 🇦🇷, French🇫🇷, and Portuguese 🇧🇷.
💉 I'm a med student and I've been living for a while in England and in Germany. I've a lot of hobbies such as practicing MMA, reading, traveling, listening to music and playing chess. I'm sure we'll find something to talk about during our lessons!
🌍 Travelling has given me the chance to experience different cultures and lifestyles, which allows me to understand what each student needs.
Me as a Teacher
📚 I'm a professional but also a very relaxed teacher. Learning a language shouldn't feel like something hard to achieve, it should feel natural, easy and fun. First of all you need the right mindset: learning a language is easy, and I promise that with me it will seem even easier!
🔬 During my career I've been teaching other subjects like biology, chemistry, maths and physics. Therefore I could teach you some technical terms as well.
🥇 Specialized in conversational lessons and students who want take their Italian to the next level.
My lessons & teaching style
🤓 During my lessons I will use different methods according to the students' needs and expectations. There's not an universal way that works for everybody so we will find together what's the best for you.
🗣️ I want you to learn Italian and Sicilian in the most natural way possible, therefore conversation, pronunciation and listening are the most important things to me. Grammar is the foundation, but then we need to move on and start to practice the "real" Italian, so that you would be able to hold a conversation if you ever come to visit Italy.

It was clear to me from the first lesson that Antonio has a natural talent for teaching! He effortlessly challenges his students while maintaining a fun and stress-free environment. It is clear that he cares for his students and wants to aid in the learning process in any way he can. He provides great explanations, examples, and documents to help with grammar & vocab. His lessons are well-rounded and I end each lesson with new and relevant skills. He gives in-depth answers to any questions and makes sure that I understand concepts before moving on. He pushes me out of my comfort zone to make sure that I maximize my learning during our lessons. He is a very patient & understanding person and I have learned so much already from his lessons! He's truly a fantastic teacher!!

Antonio is amazing! I’ve been taking lessons with him for a month now and he’s hands down the best teacher I’ve found on this site. He’s a natural-born educator: always going above and beyond for his students, sending detailed notes after the lessons and responding promptly to any questions you have about grammar, culture, etc. Thanks to his encouragement and patience, my level of Italian has improved tremendously and my confidence speaking the language is ever-growing. Whether you’re a beginner or a student stuck in the intermediate/advanced plateau then absolutely book a lesson with him - I can’t recommend him highly enough!!

Antonio is very good as a teacher. He worries about small but important details in conversation, grammar and pronunciation and he is very helpful explaining when and how to use the correct forms of Italian. Besides that he is fun and very easy going so the conversation flows very easily. The class was definitely worth it. Grazie Antonio!
