Gentilmente in Italian means “kindly, gently”.
Daniela chose this name for her project, first, because it’s a play on words on her surname (Gentile means “kind, gentle”). Then, because a good, kind environment is essential to learn a language. Daniela teaches Italian gentilmente, giving confidence to her students, creating a comfortable space where they feel completely free to communicate and to express their own personality in Italian.
