Uno, due, tre… Have you ever wanted to learn another language? That’s just what our founder Raffaella Galliani wanted to do as a young woman.

Speakitaly NYC was created to help take the learning experience to another level, focusing not only on the basics, but on real life conversations and experiences which is what really sets us apart from other language institutes. Raffaella has developed key approaches that helps students go from a novice to fluency.

Speakitaly wants to be the source from which to begin a new journey, for those who started studying years ago and to those who took a break and would now like to resume their study of Italian through private, group, or themed classes.

We proudly use the ‘Common European Framework of Reference for languages’ as our guidelines for our online and offline courses. This framework allows us to work with students from around the world with the confidence that they are in the best course level for optimal learning of their new language.

Our method is driven by a didactic method that is the result of constant updates, professional certifications and more than 10 years of experience in working with non-native speakers from different native languages and levels of knowledge.

Our aim is to develop a range of Italian language skills while improving accuracy that will enable the students and participants to interact without stress or feeling rushed. We want to help those in the community really embrace not only the true culture in Italy but the Italian culture within New York City… Who doesn’t love what Italy represents in the kitchen, in history & in the arts?

Speakitaly NYC is for everybody—that is our mission. We are at the avant-garde of language teaching with a broad range of possibilities to learn, practice and have fun with the Italian language. Effective Italian language learning comes with pleasure. We possess the experience, flexibility, and methodology necessary to create something different, something new, something exciting!
