Membership

Most of the learning material I produce is free (videos, dialogues, podcast episodes and so on) and I always try helping my students whenever I can, but I couldn’t continue with this project without your support.
So if you become a member on Patreon, not only would you be getting a lot more learning resources, but you’d be giving me a huge help in producing them for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Patreon ?

Patreon is a membership platform that makes it easy for a creator to handle your payments and deliver your benefits to you. It only takes a few minutes to sign up. Here is a video explaining what Patreon is.

How will I receive my benefits ?

You can unlock the content you’re interested in on this website by clicking on the Unlock with Patreon button (or by clicking either on the Become a member or the Choose this plan button on this page). You’ll be redirected to the Patreon page. You will be prompted to login with (or create) your Patreon account. After choosing and activating your membership level, you’ll be redirected to this page again and you’ll be able to receive your benefits.
In case you activated your membership directly on Patreon, you’ll need to click on the Unlock with Patreon button anyway (and sometimes also when you visit this site again after a while). You won’t go through the same procedure all over again, but you’ll simply be required to log into Patreon before being redirected to your unlocked content. As long as you’re a member, you’ll be always able to receive your benefits.

When will I be charged ?

Once you activate your subscription, you’ll be able to access all the content related to your membership level. Patreon will charge you immediately and then again on the 1st of the following month. Make sure that your payment goes through or you won’t be able to receive your benefits.

Can I cancel my subscription whenever I want ?

You can cancel at any time and you won’t be charged anymore. As soon as you delete your pledge, you will lose access to your patron only content.

Am I allowed to use the material on this site to teach Italian in schools or language courses ?

Please do ! And let me know how it goes.
