I highly recommend Davide Valenti and Valenti Lingua. Davide provides excellent Italian language instruction. He is without peer in Arizona.

Davide is a native Italian speaker with a true passion for teaching. His aim is to help students achieve their desired level of fluency in the Italian language by presenting a well-planned, energetic course of instruction. Classes are collegial. There is excellent interaction among students and Davide. Classroom instruction is enhanced with homework that includes textbook exercises, as well as use of web-based tools that feature interesting video, the opportunity to listen to Italian being spoken by Italians and challenging exercises. Homework is reviewed in class and provides reinforcement.

I have taken two Italian classes with Davide and I’ve signed up for a third. My Italian language skills have improved markedly. I highly recommend Davide to anyone who wants to learn Italian and is willing to commit time and effort to the program.
