About us

Ciao! We are Anna & Diana, a full-time professional language teacher and a freelance translator.

We met quite a few years ago while studing Asian languages at university in Venice, when we created our first Website on Chinese culture. We are now having the time of our life creating content for learners of Italian, especially English speakers, who may find it particularly hard to figure out our unnerving grammar, or who need help to progress from a beginner level, or who just want to go beyond the stereotypes, learn authentic everyday Italian, and engage with Italian culture and lifestyle.

Why do we use British spelling in our content? British English is what we were taught in school from a young age, but we have nothing against American English or other variants. We just had to make a choice :)

Get in touch!

If you have a suggestion or a request, send us an email, or use the icons in the top right corner to connect through our social media accounts.

Twitter is probably the easiest option if you'd like to chat with us, in English or Italian. We tweet daily about Italy and the Italian language.

If you have a YouTube/Google account, you can subscribe to our channel and click the bell icon to be notified any time we publish a new video - which usually happens every Wednesday at 3 pm CET.

You can also follow our Facebook or Instagram page to know when new content is available.

Finally, if you'd like to contribute to this project, you can pledge a small amount on Patreon :)
