Dr. Biagio Faraci

Hallo everybody and welcome to ONE CLICK ITALIAN, my Virtual Italian Language and Culture Accademy! My name is Biagio Faraci and I live in Monemaggiore Belsito, a small agricultural village located in the heart of Sicily about 70 km far away from Palermo. Distance Languages learning and teaching methods have always been my greatest passion, which pushed me to launch my "One Click Italian" project: a sort of Virtual Italian Language School for foreigners where everybody can enjoy FREE ONLINE ITALIAN LANGUAGE LESSONS AND COURSES directly from home with just one click as weel as book and attend my CUSTOMIZED ONE TO ONE ITALIAN LANGUAGE CLASSES through skype videoconference and enjoy a unique learning experience totally shaped according to his own learning rhythms and personal goals. I decided to develope this project because I am convinced that everybody can learn a foreign language, if he really wants it. It doesen't matter how old you are, how educated you are and how much you already know about Italian language! It's just a matter of positive attitude, constancy and commitment! If I did it with English and German, you can do it for sure with Italian! I wish you all a nice surfing and thank you so much for learning Italian with me at ONE CLICK ITALIAN! Greetings from Italy!
