Ciao! My name is Stefano. I am an Italian tutor and course author.
As a serial language learner, I’ve lectured in polyglot clubs about my method.
After learning 12 languages, I can tell you that we all master languages by listening and mimicking.
With my method, you’ll be speaking Italian from Lesson 1.

Rave Reviews by Learners and Experts
Frederica – UK
Ripeti con me! has been the best language learning experience I’ve had.
I have always been really shy about speaking languages, and the fact that you are speaking from the very first day really builds your confidence, makes you much more fluent, in terms of how you’re thinking in the language.
It’s been a real change for me. I couldn’t recommend it enough!
Takehiro – Japan
I have been taking lessons with Stefano for a year and a half. Stefano is an excellent teacher. Thanks to him, my Italian has improved dramatically.
Stefano understands all aspects of the Italian language. He has a lot of experience, not only in teaching Italian but also in language learning. This makes him an ideal teacher.
I highly recommend him!

I’ve been using it for several months and I was drawn to it.
It’s a method that works for people in the Peace Corps when they have to learn a language fast to repeat entire phrases and then use the context of the phrases to develop their language skills.
You’re not only listening and repeating whole phrases but you’re learning grammar step by step at the same time.
Anthony – UK
Stefano’s course has proven very effective in helping me develop my Italian, which is why I’ve been sticking with it for so long now.
And I’m very cautious as to which platform I use to help me learn, so this is worth every single penny.
Emily – USA
It is a system that is easy, brilliant—so easy that only somebody that really really understood teaching languages could come up with.
Every lesson builds on what came before it and you’re learning the language without even giving it a second thought.
I was able to converse naturally when we went to Italy. The words just flowed, I was no longer translating in my head.
I’ve come so much further than with Babbel or Duolingo. None of the silly games, no fill-in-the-blanks, no homework, no exercises to do — all the things that I felt like I was wasting time with.
I highly recommend it and I know if you try it it will work for you too.
Vivinne – USA
Ripeti Con Me has really helped with my language learning, with my speaking, which is what I’m mostly interested in.
I noticed within about 3 to 4 days of starting that my speaking ability took a jump as well as my listening comprehension.
James – Ireland
This course is brilliant.
I encourage anyone who takes on the course to go through those three different repetitions because they really do actually work.
As a complete beginner to Italian, I’ve found it a very stress-free and easy way to get into the language without any of the nervousness and anxiety that comes with face-to-face learning and being put on the spot.
I really recommend the course to anyone out there wanting to learn Italian.”
Jim – USA
I really like learning Italian on Think in Italian.
It’s a no-nonsense method that appeals to me – no time wasted doing exercises or playing games.
[Its sentences] are well thought out and they can be adapted to real conversation pretty easily.
No memorization either. It’s right to the point.
