Pantcilwrach ,

Ms

Olly is really encouraging and has some great ideas.

The Green Dragon ,

Thanks Olly!

I’ve been traveling around Europe this summer and decided to start learning Italian while away!

I found a great beginners course and was feeling lost after I had completed it until I stumbled across Olly!

I was inspired by his exceptional knowledge and experience.
He’s been there, done that and is handing out T shirts to everyone!

The podcasts are so helpful and insightful.

I love Olly’s book of short stories in Italian!

Since finding Olly’s resources, I feel so much more confident in myself and I am positive about the path I’m following.
I’m seeing the benefits in my language learning so quickly and more importantly I am enjoying it!

Thanks Olly, you are a great help!

keelylondon ,
