Sira is very warm and welcoming and made my sister and I feel at ease from the start. She’s a wonderful teacher who quickly tunes into your interests and language needs and designs her teaching and materials to suit each student. We enjoyed a mix of learning by doing as we walked round Sarzana, we had outings by car to the Golfo dei Poeti, for example, we had dinner together and sometimes with Sira’s friends, which was delightful. In a week I felt much more confident in speaking Italian and using everyday language. Thank you Sira, for a wonderful week!
