Ermy, founder of The Language Rose, is sharing in this workshop how she learned to become a confident speaker of another language and how you can do it too.

Although most examples will be for Italian learners, the strategies presented can be actually applied to any language. Here is what you’ll learn:
• How to have a conversation in a foreign language despite lacking vocabulary (including when you don’t understand what the other person says)
• How to overcome any stress and fear when speaking
• How to feel more confident when speaking Italian (or any other language).

This workshop is for everyone who has been learning Italian (or another foreign language) and despite having learnt a lot they still can’t speak it because…
• They don’t feel confident enough to start or even have a conversation in Italian
• They get stressed out or anxious when they try to speak
• They feel they lack vocabulary (despite being able to understand more than they can say)
• They just want to feel more confident when speaking Italian

If you too would like to finally find the courage to speak Italian, join Ermy for this workshop.

Erminia Pedata, aka “Ermy” (PGCE, MA, and certified language coach with a Neurolanguage coaching® qualification) is a language coach certified by Efficient Language Coaching and accredited by the International Coaching Federation. Ermy helps enthusiastic lifelong learners and Italian lovers to learn to speak Italian using creativity, art and play. Find more about her at or on her Youtube channel
