Ciao/ Hello! My name is Francesca. I was born and raised in Italy. I have been teaching Italian since 2008 at levels ranging from beginner to advanced and to all ages. My lessons are fun, dynamic, and flexible. They intended to develop speaking, listening, writing and reading skills and offer fun conversation on a variety of topics. Students learn the language through practical examples of daily life situations. Each lesson can be tailored to the students’ needs. I have also tailored my lessons for students that want to learn the Italian language for traveling purposes. Learning a language goes hand in hand with understanding the culture. My lessons are focused on using the Italian culture to provide the setting that helps the students learn the language and feel comfortable and confident when speaking to native Italian speaking persons.

I've been taking Italian with Francesca for a long time, 5 years now, She's great at building confidence and keeping lessons fun, she encourages you in activities that improve
conversation, writing and reading skills.
I have learned so much in her classes and I can tell you with confidence that I speak Italian fluently.
I recommend her highly.
Junko H.
Amazing teacher and love the class (and classmates)! Taking her classes for a few years now. Mix of daily conversations, grammar, and common Italian expressions...that we can actually use!
Erta
I would highly recommend Francesca Bruni as an Italian teacher! She has been my Italian teacher for a number of years! Her ability to instruct vocabulary, grammar and comprehension all woven together with themes of Italian culture has provided me with a rapid acquisition of essential and enjoyable conversation skills. Not only are Francesca’s instructional materials relevant and engaging, but whether presented in an in-person manner or online virtual setting, allow for a highly successful experience. You will be amazed at how quickly you will become a fluent Italian speaker, reader, and writer!

I've been teaching Italian since 2004 and my students have gone to learn and love not only the language, but also the rich Italian culture. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to handle basic conversations; later you'll learn to talk about the past and the future, etc. I use different types of materials: books, but also extracts from magazine, songs, videos, commercials, etc. I love mixing language with culture and pop-culture as they all are tightly connected.

Just had my first lesson with Mattia and he gave me a lot of valuable tips right away. Exercises to practice on my free time every day which I think will provide a solid base for my practice in the future. Looking forward to seeing how far I can go!
Aaron
Mattia is an extremely patient and cheerful teacher, an excellent instructor for a first time student. My child had no previous musical experience, and Mattia worked with him to learn the basics, even when he forgot his drum pad at his other parent's home. Mattia was flexible with the instruction time, and you can tell that he simply enjoys the subject and sharing his knowledge with others. Happily recommend!

I had a great first lesson with Mattia and he's an excellent teacher. I'm looking forward to learning more!

Italian Language Classes in San Francisco

Interested in learning Italian? 63 million people across the globe speak this beautiful language. It’s no wonder that many of the best writing and art forms have come from Italy, and that both Dante and Michelangelo are still household names after centuries.

If you learn Italian in San Francisco, you'll develop a better understanding of the origins of civilization and gain a love for the romantic language. You'll also have better travel experiences and a richer appreciation for the Italian culture.

Why Italian Language Classes in San Francisco Make the Perfect Setting

With over 800,000 people, San Francisco is the fourth-most populated city in the Golden State of California. Its hilly scenery overlooking the San Francisco Bay and Golden Gate Bridge are truly stu

...

nning. This gorgeous setting provides a fitting place to study a language also known for its beauty.

Because of the diversity in San Francisco, you'll find plenty of native Italian speakers right where you live. You'll also be able to build friendships with Italian Americans, learning more about their language and culture. But conversing with local Italian speakers is only part of the equation. Italian language tutors in San Francisco, CA are a vital part of learning the language too.

Finding an Italian Tutor in San Francisco

If you want to learn Italian in San Francisco, you'll need a great tutor. Finding a teacher to meet with in-person is key because one-on-one guidance will help you learn the language quickly, and motivate you to keep going.

One local teacher, Eva R., has quite the cultural background to offer. She's currently an art professor and fashion designer but hails from Florence, Italy. Eva R. uses a combination of conversation and grammar lessons to help students start speaking right away. She'll also introduce you to the world-famous Italian culture.

Our directory currently includes more than 50 Italian instructors like Eva, and that number continues to grow daily. While some teachers may not live close enough to meet in-person, you can always take online lessons with your preferred tutor.

When and Where to Take Italian Classes in San Francisco

Once you've decided on a teacher, you'll need to figure out the logistics of your Italian classes in San Francisco. You'll want to look at your schedule and decide on a good lesson time. Our instructors are very flexible. If you end up needing a class time at "odd hours" because of your work schedule, an online instructor might be the perfect solution.

When deciding where to take lessons, you have a few options. You can take classes at your instructor's studio, at your home, or at a public location. You may want to consider meeting at a local park like Crissy Field, if the weather is nice. Another great option is a nearby cafe such as Cafe Francisco on Powell Street.

You can go underground on the Muni Metro to arrive at your Italian classes in SF. Or, if you want to take in the sights (such as Chinatown and AT&T Park) you can take a Muni Bus. Of course, if you decide to go the online route,  you can take Italian classes in the comfort of your home without ever having to step outside!

Making the Most Of Italian Lessons in San Francisco, CA

Although a tutor is essential, there are some additional steps you can take to ensure studying the Italian language in San Francisco is a success. Discovering the local Italian culture and immersing yourself is key.

This could be as easy as locating an authentic Italian restaurant, such as Ristorante Franchino where the owners are native speakers. You can also become a part of the San Francisco Italian Language Meetup Group, which currently has over 2,000 members. There, you'll find other Italian language enthusiasts at every skill level. They'll be excited to learn with you and help you on your journey.

Another key to supplementing Italian lessons in San Francisco is to visit your local library and bookstores. Try the Park Branch Library or another one close by for dictionaries and other resources. When purchasing new and used materials, consider Dog Eared Books or try the Alexander Book Company on 2nd Street.

As you begin your lessons, it's important to have all of your supplies stocked up. Some of those items could be flashcards, notebooks, pens and pencils. Gables Office Supplies and Stationery or a similar store should have all you need for your Italian classes in SF.

Also, be sure to check out the city's cultural events. San Francisco's annual Italian Heritage Parade is the city's oldest civic event at 150 years and counting. Another must-visit event is the annual Festa Coloniale Italiana "Italian Festival". There, you'll find live music, dancing, authentic Italian cuisine, wine tasting and much more. As you can see, taking Italian lessons in San Francisco, CA is a fun, exciting and worthwhile venture!
