“I have been studying Italian with Maria for almost 2 years. I am a senior and found that studying a new language at an old age is very beneficial for exercising the memory. The small classes are a lot of fun, we laugh, we joke (in Italian of course) and learn about Italian customs and heritage. I recently visited Italy and to my amazement was able to communicate. Maria is a wonderful and encouraging teacher, with non judgmental personality.”

“I have been taking Maria’s classes for a year. I took private Italian lessons with Maria Conte and then joined a group class. She is a great teacher- the classes are always well-prepared and engaging, and she encourages great conversations among students. I started with the alphabet and now I can understand whole articles and conversations in Italian, which is truly amazing. Thank you, Maria.”

“I first met signora Conte several years ago in a Montessori school in Greater Boston where she was my daughter’s favorite teacher. Then, destiny wanted that years later our entire family reunite with Mrs. Conte again, but in a different setting. My daughter took Italian lessons with Prof. Conte and thanks to her fabulous teaching, she was accepted into the Italian program at her university. Subsequently, my daughter qualified for a scholarship and she spent a semester in Italy. My husband and I, both enrolled in Italian classes with Maria Conte as well so we could visit our daughter in Italy. We are all very grateful of her terrific teaching. Her books are straight forward, the grammar is clearly presented and is very easy to follow. Being able to communicate in Italian during our trip was a lot of fun. Prof. Maria has a warm welcoming personality, treats people with respect, and is highly dedicated to her students. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND Prof. Conte.”
