Italian lessons with Stefania are more than just the learning of another language, but afford the student the opportunity of learning about a different culture, a different way of life, as well as learning how to speak authentic Italian.  I can’t imagine studying Italian with anyone else. To study Italian with Ms. Borrelli will not only start you on your way to learning a language, but will also enrich your life. – Ernie Cox – Ottawa

Stefania Borrelli has been a teacher of Italian language to the staff of the Malaysia Embassy in Rome and to me personally.

She is also interested in introducing new comers to Rome to the rich cultural and musical event in the city. I do not hesitate to recommend her as a young lady of the highest calibre.

In a recent trip to Europe with my husband and another couple, we were fortunate enough during the Italian portion of our vacation, to have Stefania Borelli assist us with many aspects of our stay there. Firstly, she was able to book us a wonderful Bed and Breakfast spot in Rome, very close to the bus transportation system which we used quite a lot to get us around that great city. She also spent time explaining how to use the bus system since no-one really wanted to attempt driving in Rome! When it came to restaurant selection, Stefania’s knowledge of the city meant that we ate at some of the most delightful and picturesque places that served lovely Italian food and wines, without breaking the bank at each stop. She also acquainted us with a small coffee shop that served, without doubt, the best coffee in the world. When we were on sight-seeing excursions, Stefania’s guidance was invaluable. She was able to get us into places like the Vatican - and in particular the Sistine Chapel - without having to wait in long line-ups. She knew how to get to the regular tourist attractions quickly, and led us down many a winding cobbled street to buy gelato on a hot afternoon. When it came time to leave Rome and move on, Stefania booked a hotel for us in Sorrento, high on the cliffs overlooking the ocean. Although she was not with us for this portion of our vacation, her suggestions about where to go (Capri, Positano) and how to get there were extremely useful, and we followed her advice all the way. We really were fortunate to have had her as our guide and helper.  - Trayten & Joyce Jensen - Ottawa
