Testimonial: The Coaching programs have helped my understanding, knowledge, and appreciation for the Italian culture and language immensely. From just a language point of view, my vocabulary has increased enormously, my written expression has improved, my reading comprehension has improved, and certainly my oral presentation and understanding has improved significantly. From a cultural understanding and knowledge, I have learned so much it is really difficult to explain. I now follow Italian politics by reading articles and blogs, I watch economy, and I continue to rent/buy Italian movies. There was one incident in particular with which I was very pleased with myself. It happened shortly after I finished the "Your Renaissance" program. There is comment that is attributed to Michelangelo about the reason he was predestined to be a sculptor. Someone I was talking with asked, in Italian, if I knew to whom the comment was related, I cannot express the pride I felt when I responded, in Italian, Michelangelo and the background surrounding it.
