I love Speak Italy!! I started classes with Raffaella and was so pleased that I got my 25 year old son to start with lessons also! I have now since had to change classes and started working with Flavia and have been just as happy! I love the classes and also love the workshops that they offer!!
Rafaella and the SpeakItaly team are the best for legal translations! Direct and clear communication, fast timing, and reasonable rates. My experience with them was absolutely flawless! Grazie Mille.
Great experience.Located right off the subway for your convenience.Raffaella was very helpful and has a lot of experience.She answered all my questions patiently.Raffaella quickly translated and mailed out my documents knowing, how quickly I needed them legalised by the consulate.I highly recommend her.
Rafaella at Speak Italy NYC is the best Italian teacher I have ever had! When you find a person like this you feel really lucky. I have studied Italian for several years on and off, but now want to learn the language and to speak correctly. Rafaella understood what I was looking for and, after evaluating my Italian, structured the conversations/lessons to my level. She makes you feel so good and confident even when you make mistakes. She is competent, cultivated, professional, kind and, most importantly, fun. I already adore the Italian language and with Rafaella, I love it even more.
Thanks, Flavia. You gave the girls a great jump start into the Italian language!
Raffaella at Speakitaly is a consumate professional and overall awesome person to work with. She was extremely flexible and helpful in helping translate and mail documents despite many changes that needed to happen at the last minute. Highly recommended for any needs.
SpeakItaly is the place to go for Italian lessons in New York City! I have had Raffaella and Flavia as teachers and they are excellent! I have also hired Raffaella to translate documents and amend a NYC marriage record and she knew exactly what to do. She worked with the Italian consulate to get me exactly what I needed also for the translations that the consulate certified!! Do yourself a favor and take lessons for your upcoming trip to Italy and if you need anything translated definetely hire Raffaella!! Buona fortuna!!!
Excelente serviço com tarifas honestas. Rafaella é super atenciosa e conhece bem os processos legais Italianos. Fiz a tradução de uma certidão com ela desde o Brasil e me senti segura o tempo todo! Foi ela quem correu atrás de tudo para mim, desde a procura por uma certidão antiga no cartório de NY, até a postagem no correio. Super recomendo!
I used Speakitaly NYC for the translation of some documents. Raffaella responded promptly, had fair pricing and sent the translations back the very next day. She was professional, reliable and a pleasure. I highly recommend her and everything Speakitaly has to offer.
Thanks Raffaella I just got all the documents from dhl, you've done a great work I really appreciated. I wish you good business in the year 2018.
Raffaella of Speakitaly NYC went above and beyond ! She is very thorough and knows her stuff ! The service provided to me in my pursuit for Italian Citizenship was expedient and flawless. I highly recommend Raffaella !
Amazing teacher - teaches me all four pillars of Italian (speaking, reading, writing, listening). Very thorough, very kind and supportive. Her teaching is very well organized and goes step-by-step. The perfect person to learn with!
Raffaella was great. I hired her to translate numerous vital documents related to my application for Italian citizenship, and she was very quick and fully professional. I would recommend her without hesitation for this type of service.
I hired Raffaella to translate some official documents for me into Italian. She is efficient and responsive. She quotes and completes the work quickly and thoroughly. It's been a great experience.
Excellent, professional, and fast Italian translation services. Rafaella was very efficient and super easy to communicate with via text and email.
Raffaella is really charming and lovely to work with and I really enjoyed her group classes. She is very attentive to her students and challenges you without making language learning intimidating, and you learn things about Italian conversation and culture that you just wouldn't pick up from a book or app. She even came to my home for a private session when I didn't have childcare. Highly recommend!
Amazing, patient and great teacher!!!
I have been taking classes at SpeakItaly for about a month now and really enjoy it. Flavia is fantastic! She uses a lot of different techniques (reading, writing, speaking, games, songs, etc.) to teach us the content each week. The classes are small, so it's easy to feel comfortable and to ask for clarification as needed. Would certainly recommend!
Raffy is an awsome teacher! Very skilled and competent in making you understand, even if at first you didn't. I sure recommend SpeakItaly in NYC
Raffaella was great to work with. She is extremely efficient and professional. If I ever need another document translated into Italian, I will definitely go to her.

Raffaella is a wonderful teacher. She is very patient and sweet. My wife is Italian and I wanted to learn so I could speak with her family. With her help I feel very comfortable and confident when I go to Italy and speak in Italian all day! Buona fortuna
Learning Italian is a fun and effective experience with Flavia, a real Italian girl. She is always supportive and available. During classes, we learn a lot, but laugh a lot as well. I definitely recommend Speakitaly and Flavia.
Speak Italy NYC was able to find a birth certificate in a week after I had been looking for a year! They were so great to work with. Well-peices, efficient and communicative.
Wonderful experience for my 5 year old with Melania. Professional but yet extremely friendly and interactive with children... highly recommend this program to anyone interested in having their child of any age learn Italian.
I have really learned so much working with Flavia. The small class size and the discussions make it so much fun and easier to learn. Flavia is very warm and very flexible. She is always willing to answer any questions or make up classes i had to miss to keep me on schedule. I cannot recommend Speakitaly enough! What a fabulous resource we have to learn Italian from native Italians!!!!
Raffaella is an excellent Italian teacher/tutor. She knows how to teach at your current level without being afraid to push you to advance. Her lessons are well organized. I would highly recommend her, my conversational skills and confidence have significantly improved since I started my lessons.
Raffaella is a really great tutor. Made me feel comfortable speaking and kept our topics of conversation interesting. Helpful, organized, and enjoyable. I highly recommend her.
Great teaching and great atmosphere. Interesting and engaging classes makes classes fly by and really help build vocabulary, confidence and fluency. Highly recommend.
My instructor, Francesca is fantastic. I'm taking privates with her and find the flexibility to fit around my schedule as a working adult very helpful. Also easy to register and pay for classes. Highly recommend using this school!
Raffaella is very competent, professional and kind. We request official translation for my son’s school report (from Italian to English) and she managed to get to us in few days. We are very happy about her work and will surely recommend her to people! :)
I used Raffaella’s translation services to translate documents from English to Italian and I’m so glad I found her! She was pleasant and easy to work with and made sure that I had all the correct documents for the Italian consulate. Raffaella provided fast service and I highly recommend her!
Raffaella is a wonderful teacher. She helps create a ciriculum based on your needs and skill level. She makes sure you have the foundation you need to move on to future levels, before you attempt to do so. She is very patient, but makes you work for your answers, which in turn makes you a better speaker. She challenges her students to advance, and does not skip the hard things. Highly recommend!!!
Wonderful experience at Raffa's new venture, Speakitaly. Really folks, she is the one who the Italian government hires to update and review the language courses! She is focused on unlocking your language potential and has enough experience to know what to skip and what to focus on, all in the service of your goals. If you are serious, she is the one for you. I was looking for a teacher who was born in Milan and who would kick my butt, found it! You should too....
The teacher is very good and she takes the time to patiently help individual students who need the assistance. Being a native Italian, her vocabulary and usage are impeccable and she has enough knowledge of the language to explain why certain rules or pronunciations exist. Her knowledge of English is also very advanced so that she can explain equally well in either language. As for the class, the structure and content are fairly good, however, the take-home notes and exercises are insufficient. Having a text book to follow with weekly assignments would have been a huge help and I would've been willing to pay additional for the book.
She is so great at getting you to learn Italian without it really feeling like a chore. Very flexible and responsive.
Raffaela at Speak Italy is the best teacher!! She makes italian lessons fun and easy! i would recommend her to anyone looking for lessons in NYC!
10 STARS for Speakitaly concept and vision, for there's no better way to learn foreign language than through interactive and integrated approach and practice, like maestra Raffy do it. Spiced with a touch of irresistible Italian humor.
Speakitaly is the go-to place for all things Italian. The proprietor, Raffaella, held a class in fresh pasta making where we all made our own pasta together. After class, I went home at ate it all! It was delicious. But not just Italian cooking, Raffaella has language instruction, Italian wine tastings and parties. If you want to learn Italian or experience Italian cultural events or if you want to meet Italians, Speakitaly is the only place to go! When she takes a tour group to Italy, I will be the first to sign up.
Raffaella is a superb language teacher. Not only highly skilled, she is quick, vibrant, and fun. She keeps everyone engaged so the time flies by, and she knows how to get students comfortable speaking Italian right away. Also, she speaks Italian in such a way that we can all understand her. She always seems to know what's most important for the students' success.
I learned so much here! It is a friendly and helpful atmosphere to learn Italian :)
Studying Italian with Flavia at Speakitaly has been a joyful experience. She's charming but efficient, and her classes fly by. The pace is fast but, still, she manages to drill the lessons into us. She's warm and inspiring. And very funny. Laughter mingles with the learning. My classmates and I have now moved onto the marvelous and charismatic Riki. He's hilarious, patient and kind. He makes the classes interesting with relevant reading and writing. He's always encouraging - despite the fact that I mangle his native tongue! He is a great teacher who makes sure we are always progressing. I love my Wednesday afternoons at Speakitaly.
Raffaella did a great job with a very fast turnaround. Would use her services again and recommend to others.
Excellent teacher. My grammar and conversation skills have improved considerably working with Raffaella. The weekly lessons are bringing my Italian to the level I've always hoped it could reach.
I spent about 6 months studying italian here and I was able to improve a lot during this time. I took group and private classes and I always found the most friendly atmosphere, which is very important if you want to enjoy the process of learning and stick to it. Both, my teacher and my classmates were great. In addition, Rafaella is always looking for new, interactive ways to make the classes fun and useful, so every now and then she plan activities outside the class to practice the language and get more into the italian culture.
Wow, I am very impressed with their turn around times, helpfulness, and professionalism. Recommend to everyone. Cannot thank them enough.
Speakitaly NYC was fast and efficient in translating several documents that were needed by the Italian Consulate to obtain my Italian citizenship. They were also able to do everything via email, which made it very convenient. I would recommend their services to anyone who needs documents translated in the future!
I contacted Raffaella to translate some documents I needed; because I was having a destination wedding in Italy. She gave me advice and helped me get all of my documents in order for the Italian Consulate in New York. She was absolutely amazing in translating the documents in a timely fashion witch assisted me in the process with the Italian authorities. I highly recommend her if you need translating official documents!
I am learning faster and retaining more Italian in Flavia’s class than in other classes I have taken. She is delightful and the other students are great. It’s really fun!
Raffaella is a pleasure to work with— super professional, easy going and friendly. Recommeded by the Italian Consulate as one of the professional translators on their website, Raffaella was very punctual in translating the documents I needed. She even triple checked one sentenced that was hard to read and got the job done with precision. I would highly recommend her and Speakitaly.
Raffi has been my tutor for the past 3 years. She tutored my older sister in Italian, and now tutors me in Spanish. Raffi helps me with my homework, projects, and helps me study for tests. Since being tutored by Raffi, my grade has went up a full 11 points. Raffi is so friendly and is the exact opposite of intimidating. I’m so happy to see her every week because she helps me get on top of my school work. 10/10 recommend.
I used their translation services and was very impressed by Speakitaly NYC professionalism, customer service and attention to detail. The translation was done ahead of schedule and Raffaella also identified that there was a document missing. Would highly recommend it!
Working with Raffaella was such a pleasure...she's so thorough, professional, super nice and super patient. Highly recommend
I have had conversational Italian meetings with Raffaella for more than a year and have only the most complimentary remarks to make. She is punctual, flexible, congenial, seems genuinely interested in whatever topic is raised, and does not make one feel awkward or uncomfortable as one labors through a second language. She is also entirely informed about the most sophisticated, even arcane, features of Italian grammar and so can also engage on that level when called upon to do so. I recommend Raffaella without reservation.
I've been taking lessons with Raffy for five months. I stick to the easy readings but they all make a lot of sense to me now! I've always looked Italian, but now when an Italian meets me I actually sound a little like an Italian too!
After searching for private Italian lessons in NY, I finally found SpeakItaly! Raffaella offers many options and is flexible with times & dates. We have one of her best teachers, Flavia, currently giving one on one lessons with our son, who is four. Each week, he can’t wait to see Flavia! Flavia is friendly and energetic and makes learning Italian fun! Great teacher, highly recommend!
Raffaella is not only a fantastic instructor, but a truly wonderful person, whose kindness and sense of humor allows for a very enjoyable learning experience.
Excellent service and customer communication. Very knowledgeable in the overall process of legalization/translation (also when compared to other translator) which saved me a lot of grief. I would not hesitate to recommend to anybody.
Italian classes with Flavia have been a great experience. Her classes are fun and effective and I find myself looking forward to them often. She cares about her students and it shows! I highly recommend Speakitaly NYC
My daughter sees Flavia for Italian lessons and we both couldn’t love her more. She truly makes learning fun, like no other. Now Ava’s friends have joined as well and they so enjoy their classes and share the same feelings as us :-)
Raffaella is fantastic! She’s patient and the pace of the class is perfect. I learned a lot and continue to take more classes. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to learn Italian.
Very professional, clear communication and really fast to reply!
she is great!!
This is a great place to learn Italian. The groups are small and well tailored to our needs. I’ve been studying italian here for about 1 year and I must say I’m always excited to come to our weekly class. Flavia has been my teacher since beginning, she is a top-notch Italian instructor! She's patient, funny and interesting, all of which make it easier and more engaging to learn Italian. Ciao Ana Abounader.
Raffaella was lovely and kind and present as she guided me through the labyrinth of acquiring my Italian Citizenship. A genius of human understanding and connectivity and her knowledge of language is encyclopedic. i can’t wait to start Italian Language classes. Grazie Multo !!
We loved working with Speakitaly. They provided for lessons for our son as well as translation work. Flavia, our son's teacher, is a wonderful person and very good instructor for children. She taught him a lot very quickly and liked her very much. We highly recommend her and the whole company for any Italian service you may need.
I have been taking classes with Melania for less than a year now. We have fun and great experience in the classroom! Looking forward to more classes together.
Raffy's sessions were terrific! She has a knack for taking structured lessons and presenting them in a "real world" scenario that makes it so much easier to absorb. She has all the knowledge and methodologies you'd want from a teacher, but with the unique ability to present it in a way that feels more "cafe" than classroom. Highly recommended!
Raffaella was exactly what we needed. She understood our problem and came up with solutions that were excellent. She communicated well and was very fast in her responses as well as with the final product . I would highly recommend Raeffaela and her services. She was able to work internationally without skipping a beat.
Before starting my lessons with Raffy, I just knew a few basic Italian words and expressions. After a year of weekly lessons, I can pretty much read anything in Italian and understand it. I also can hold my own in a conversation. She’s a great teacher with a knack for explaining complicated stuff in a simple way. Best thing is she’s conversational, so you get to talk in Italian. And to that point, you start to develop an ear for it too. She's very patient and very flexible with her schedule. Often my work would get in the way, and she would always accommodate. Classes always are fun and can range from reading, to grammatical, to purely conversational, but she ties it all together. I loved reading articles for homework. I would highly recommend Raffy!
A cross between a structured curriculum and your own interests, you can learn Italian while having some fun doing so. Likewise, Raffaella is both an active teacher and casual conversationalist. You will discuss things that are actually pertinent—in America and Italy—just in Italian.
Raffaele deserves 10 stars not 5. I only gave her my papers this morning and she translated them on the same day. She is really an asset to Speakitaly NYC. I didn't expect them so fast. Brava!!!! Thank you so much. I will surely recommend you and your services any time to my friends and will certainly use you again if needed. Jeanette Nicosia
Just finished level 1 at Speakitaly and was impressed by their professionalism. I had Francesca as a teacher and she was such a joy, and made it seem so easy and fun to learn a language.
Valentina was amazing with my daughter she mad the class interesting for her and she really enjoyed going she is great with kids !!
I had some documents translated by Raffaele and was extremely happy with the results. She was quick, her prices are great, and the workers at the consulate went over the translations extremely carefully and said they were perfect. Can’t recommend her enough!
SpeakItaly NYC is the best! Raffaella, the instructor goes above and beyond, planning all kinds of fun events that not only allow you to practice your Italian skills, but also learn about Italian culture and food. She's also an amazing and patient instructor. Working with her improved my Italian tremendously!
I went to Raffaella for help with my Italian citizenship application -- a complicated process. She was enormously helpful, both in translating many documents, but also in helping me understand what I need to do and to have, in order to be prepared for my interview at the Consulate. Raffaela produced beautiful work and did so very quickly and efficiently. I recommend her to you without reservation.
Raffy is a very caring instructor, my Italian has improved so much since I started studying with Raffy!
I so enjoy studying Italian with Melania. As a business owner with an incredibly hectic schedule I go to class Monday nights and I am able to completely relax and enjoy myself. It's a low pressure, yet productive, learning environment. Melania is a receptive and creative instructor with an aptitude for interweaving language lessons with the history and culture of Italy, about which she is extremely knowledgable. Did I mention she is patient? And fun loving. I would recommend her adult classes to anyone looking for a gentle approach to learning Italian. I feel very taken care of with her as my teacher at Speakitaly NYC.
Wonderful teacher, wonderful experience. Highly recommend! Molto Bene!
I contacted Raffaella for help in translating documents for the Italian embassy. She was very nice, super quick and professional.
Very professional, extremely prompt, a pleasure to work with. Raffaella is very thorough, has great communication and turnaround. Highly recommend.
My wife and I have had the good fortune to have Sole as our weekly tutor here at home. She is a highly-credentialed, pedagogically-skilled academic who has the gift of not sounding like a teacher, but an informative, interesting conversational partner. When necessary, Sole explains often complicated grammatical points with great finess, but the emphasis is on spoken Italian, which she uses almost exclusively, much to our delight. It is not laissez faire teaching -- there is a definite agenda, and she will make corrections quickly where necessary -- but she is sympathetic to the plight of the beginning student, and wholly non-judgmental. Add to these qualities the fact that she is a most amiable person and you have to end up with Five Stars.
I hired Speakitaly to translate many documents from English to Italian, their service and speed in supplying translations with signed authenticity forms was incredible! I mentioned that I was searching for a birth certificate from Italy of a long deceased relative... Speakitaly offered to give a chance in finding it. To be honest I had hired other search companies over the last 8 months and no one could find.... Speakitaly found it within 10 days!! Amazing!! How they found it, I’ll never know but I’m grateful for their excellent service. I highly recommend Speakitaly and will always use in future Thank you Robert Molnar
Helped me out when I was in need! In under 24 hours, Raffaella was able to accomplish the task at hand while offering great advice on my next steps to proceed to Apostilles and Consulates. Thank you :)
Speakitaly has truly been a great experience. I’ve been learning Italian for years but I wanted to I wanted to improve my grammer and speaking abilities in order to potentially move abroad. Chiara is a wonderful teacher - positive, warm, great at explaining concepts and her class has helped me keep up with and improve my skills. Highly recommend!
i hired SpeakItaly to translate some birth, death and marriage certificates for my Italian citizenship application. I was in London and they were still able to accommodate me. They were timely, courteous and very easy to work with. Definitely recommend them.
It has been a very good experience learning a new language with Francesca, who teaches and interacts with each and all students. She's very interested in ensuring that new words are repeated as many times as needed, for students to grasp the accent and meaning. Singing songs, including Italian culture, it's been an amazing experience .
Fast, seamless and stress free process, from the estimation to when I receive the document translated, as a file, which I printed and mail to Italian Consulate. Highly recommend the translation service.
Raffaella did a great job with the translations!! She also let me know which documents I needed to prepare prior to getting them translated. Great experience!
Raffaella is a great teacher. It's a great intimate setting that allows the flexibility for lessons to be adjusted to the strengths and opportunities of the students.
QUICK, EFFICIENT, EASY. MY DOCUMENTS DONE IN 2 HOURS BY EMAIL!!!!!
Raffaella at SpeakItaly has provided translations of official documents on several occasions for members of my family. She responds promptly to requests for services, provides clear information about the costs and an easy to use method of payment. The translations are done professionally and in a timely manner. I highly recommend her services.
excellent service, super efficient and friendly.
Translation service was super quick and efficient, as well as reasonably priced. Great job!
I've known Raffaella for 11 years now, and she is nothing short of a great teacher and older sister to me. She's patient with me and makes my lessons fun, and I could not be at the level I am in Italian without her help.
I am an early advanced adult student who could not find the right Italian language school. I tried a private teacher through Meetup, a visiting graduate student through Craigslist, a retiree through Thumbtack, and a group class setting at WeWork before finding Raffy. These teachers either treated me like a number, had returned to Italy, were inconveniently located, or could not offer the level I needed. I was initially turned off by Raffy's busy schedule and her frequent messaging, but I decided to try my luck. What I first thought was perhaps disorganization, I now understand to be an incredible ability to manage a wide range of Italian language lessons, cooking classes, wine tastings, dinner competitions, brunches, etc....all coordinated by herself, for her students. We meet weekly or bi-weekly for an hour at a cafe convenient for both of us, and we spend about 30 minutes in conversation followed by 30 minutes of grammar, writing, or reading. Raffy is fair with our time and has always given me the full 60 minutes, even talking to me after our class. She is creative and resourceful in assigning homework, coming up with an interesting article or topic relevant to our conversation right on the spot. What stands out to me however, is that Raffy is a pleasure to talk to. No topic is off-limits, so I am able to learn to talk about everything in a natural way. Because we end up talking about so many things, it feels like Raffy has become a friend. I've now been taking lessons with her for almost a year, and I would highly recommend it.
Raffaella is a lovely teacher, approachable and flexible. She is a very good instructor if you are wanting to really know the basics of Italian grammar, but also the language you will need on vacation
Speakitaly provides the best Italian language instruction I've found in NYC. I've tried a lot of options out there and they seem to have the most comprehensive learning experience. They are also very helpful and a joy to work with overall. Highly recommend!!!
My instructor, Chiara, made grammatically challenging points much easier to grasp. She was always well prepared for the classes and I looked forward to coming to her classes. I plan to join again in the fall term.
I needed some documents translated from English for the Italian Consulate, so I contacted Raffaella. She answered me almost immediately, and offered a very reasonable price for the translation. She then completed the work very quickly. I will definitely hire her again to translate more of my documents, and would also recommend her to anyone needing the same.
My friends and I had a most enjoyable evening and learned a lot about wine from Tuscany. The evening was well organized while being informal and lots of fun. We are looking forward to attending future wine tastings!
Raffaella of Speakitaly NYC is an expert translator who handled all the documents for my Italian citizenship application. This included translating all the documents, sending and retrieving them from the Italian Consulate in NYC, and communicating with my Italian and US lawyers. Raffaella worked very swiftly, her rates are reasonable and her attitude to her clients and the service she provides first rate.
I contacted Raffaella to translate some documents I needed to enroll for my Masters in Italy as well helping me with handing in those documents at the Italian Consulate in New York while I was abroad. She was absolutely amazing in translating the documents as well as contacting the Italian authorities. I highly recommend her if you need translating official documents!
