Hello everyone! My name is Francesca and for some years I have been living and working in Spain, in Barcelona.
I'm italian. I studied Spanish starting from level A1 up to level C2, certified by the most prestigious organization in the study and teaching of the Spanish language, the Instituto Cervantes.
I have been teaching Spanish classes online since 2018. My lessons are in Spanish only, from day one. I use other languages only to clear up particularly complicated doubts. My students value this aspect positively because they can improve quickly.
Since I have studied Spanish from scratch to mastering the highest level of the language, I do not only understand the doubts my students might have, but I have experienced similar situations to theirs.
For this reason, I can easily understand and solve the problems you may have while learning Spanish. I also speak other languages (Italian, English, French, Portuguese) and this helps me to identify common difficulties and mistakes tailored to each specific language.
I prepare and supply customized material.
Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any doubts.
- All levels: from A1 to C2
- General Spanish, university exam preparation, DELE A1-C2, SIELE

Great teacher, who's helped me a lot and lets you pick what you want to focus on whether that's grammar or conversation. La mejor profesora en el mundo! Si quieres hacer conversacion o gramatica me ha ayudado mucho.
Francesca is an excellent teacher! She is incredibly patient and makes the complex things easy to understand. Her teaching style is structured and easy to follow. She directly understood the points I needed to work on and adapted the lessons weeks after weeks. I can definitely see the progress I have made and I could not have done it without her! It has been a pleasure to take lessons with her, and I highly recommend her!
The classes with Francesca are not only very good but also very joyful. She explains very well grammar related issues but at the same time tries to keep lessons fun and diverse. Francesca caters to your needs and Spanish level, either with book or just conversational. She is always very punctual for the lesson. I enjoy having lessons with her. She teaches with enthusiasm and joy.
I have been having private spanish lessons with Francesca for about 5 months now. She comes to teach at my home twice per week, and she is always on time to the minute. She is a fantastic teacher, very friendly, intelligent, patient and supportive. Moreover, she is very professional and knowledgeable in spanish linguistics, making her able to explain grammatical rules in simple and easy terms, something that native speaking spanish teachers may have problems with. She is also always well prepared ahead our lessens and she is perfectly organized. Moreover, Francesca is good at discovering the areas where need to work more and what pace is best for you. She helped me to start speaking better spanish within few weeks, more than I did with my other teachers in several months time. She is an awesome teacher that everybody should be happy working with! Thanks for your great help, Francesca!!
