My name is Antonio Lucicesare.  I’m an Italian teacher and teacher trainer with more than ten years’ experience teaching Italian in London to both native and non-native English speakers. I currently work at King’s College London and the Italian Cultural Institute and previous experience at the University of Greenwich, Regent’s College and London Business School.  I also work as a freelance teacher for several language agencies.

I like to take a communicative approach to my teaching.  I focus on designing interactive and enjoyable lessons that help learners of all ages to improve their skills and gain confidence in using Italian for effective communication.   I am also really interested in the use of new technologies in language teaching and learning.

In addition to my love of the Italian language, I’m passionate about Italian history and culture.  I’m a particular fan of my region, Puglia , which is famed for its red earth and olive groves, rugged coasts, beautiful beaches, and wonderful food.  I organize unique, tailor-made holidays with language schools in Italy, in Puglia, in Tuscany, Rome, in Sorrento and more for my students where they can stay with an Italian family, take language classes, learn how to cook Italian specialities, see the region’s best sites or just enjoy a few lazy days on the beach!

If you’d like to get in contact with me to talk about learning Italian, or visiting Italy (Puglia , Tuscany, Lazio, Sorrento or Rome..)  feel free to send me an email at

    Un blog utilissimo che consiglierei a tutti che imparano la lingua italiana!
    Studiando italiano all’Istituto Italiano di Cultura ho imparato tanto e sono sicuro che era una delle esperienze più importanti della mia vita. Ho pubblicato un testo sul mio blog dove descrivo come ho imparato questa lingua bellissima!

    Cordiali saluti,

    We have been using this website for a while now, and have found it very helpful for our Italian course at Uni. Especially the grammar practice and learning resources. Thank you Antonio for being such a great and fun lecturer! 🙂

    Grazie mille, a presto

    Hey Antonio,
    I’ve been reading your blog and I think the content you post is brilliant.
    I’m a language enthusiast myself and along with some friends we’ve started a language app – VocApp. It is a flashcard mobile and website app that provides a number of innovative features, such as creating flashcards from a photo, creating flashcards with your voice, creating flashcards from a text (in just a few seconds you can make a set of words from your favourite song, e.g.
    I imagine that you must be very busy but if you were interested in testing our app (and possibly writing a short review of it if you want) I could grant you access to our language courses and paid options of our app, so that you can explore it thoroughly.
    Keep up the great work! I’ll be looking forward to hearing from you.
    All the best,

    • Antonio

    An excellent collection of materials and content which, as a teacher of Italian to 11-18 yr old students, I will happily try out to enrich their learning and broaden their cultural knowledge. Ottime idee Antonio, grazie, complimenti e auguri!!
