I would like to present my friend Emma who is an Italian language teacher who lives in Rome. I had the opportunity to meet up with Emma last year in Rome and together we explored the Roman ghetto and later had a dinner in a delightful trattoria. That evening we dined on artichokes, pasta carbonara and drank a very good red wine. As we ate, the restaurant owner sat at a table near-by peeling crates and crates of artichokes and he happily joined in our conversation from time to time.
Emma is delightful she is now opening her home up to language students who would like to immerse in language and culture. If you stay with her you will not only learn Italian, but you will see a lively side of Rome, not many tourists are privy too!
