Meet Clara and Martina
We are the founders of My Italian Room.
We met during University, when we were both studying Foreign Languages in Bologna. Based on our language learning experience, and seeing how many students struggle to communicate effectively, we decided to start My Italian Room. This is a space where we leverage practice and consistency in communication-based courses to make our students confident and fluent in Italian.

Ciao, io sono Clara!
I was born in a small town in the North of Italy, but I've always had a great love for foreign languages. I graduated in Language Education at the University of Venice, and I lived in multiple countries including Poland and Georgia. Now I am based in Rome.
I've been teaching Italian both online and at University to people from all around the world. Teaching Italian is so rewarding: I love seeing my students reaching success and improving lesson after lesson!
When I'm not teaching you can find me reading, hiking, travelling or exploring new cities and neighbourhoods. I love meeting new people and listening to their stories: I can't wait to hear yours!
Ciao, io sono Martina.
I grew up in Modena, Emilia Romagna, the land of tortellini.
I’ve always had a strong passion for exploring cultures and learning languages. During university, I lived in Lisbon, where I improved my Portuguese and fell in love with the local culture. Now, I live in London.
I strongly believe that languages can change your life, opening doors
to new beginnings and happiness. This is why I teach Italian.
I have a strong passion for nature, photography and good food. I love trying new sports, and taking long walks at the mountains or seaside.
My Italian Room enabled me to meet amazing people:
I am sure you will be the next!
