Two weeks with Sira did wonders for my Italian — and my pleasure in speaking it! Sira understood exactly what I needed at every step, and she made the process so much fun that our time flew by. When I started, my conversational Italian was painfully slow and self-conscious. Sira promised to “unblock” my ability to speak and she did exactly that. Intuitively, she knew when my brain was ready to be challenged and when it needed rest. I always felt stimulated but never overloaded. Our conversations were so engaging that I almost forgot I was “studying.” Instead, I felt I was spending time with a wonderful friend. I can’t wait to go back!
