Hello everyone!

Yes, you’re right. I’m an Italian singer and a songwriter. So…why am I here teaching English?

Well, I’ve always loved music and since I was a little girl I’ve studied English in order to understand and sing the songs of my favorite artists (such as Bon Jovi, Train, Aerosmith, Bryan Adams, Sting, U2, Eric Clapton, Noa, and many more).

Of course what I studied at school was important, but I would have never become fluent in English if it hadn’t been for the lyrics of the songs I wanted to be able to sing!  I mean,  when you study a language you have to know what you study it FOR.  You need a reason why,  a target.   My goal was clear : I wanted to write my own songs.  Just like my idols, the ones who have written many of my favorite songs of all time:  Desmond Child and Diane Warren,  the best songwriters ever.  I love them.

Then, little by little I found out the best thing about studying languages.  The more you study a language, the more you open your mind to that new culture you are getting in contact with : history, literature and arts, habits, way of thinking. And vice versa:  the more you understand the culture,  the more you can eventually handle the language.  It’s an exciting never ending journey.

So far I’ve studied English, Spanish, French and some German,  but I wish I could speak each and every language of the world!!!

If you’re curious to know something more about my rock band Addiction Crew  or  my acoustic duo 12n (twelve Notes),  about my songs  or  about my English course called English Amplifier,  you can visit my website

You can also check out my videos on my youtube channel  (MartaInnocenti).

And this is the page you can use to get in contact with me,  leave your comment here! I can’t wait to hear from you.   I mean it.  When Cindy and I decided to call our blog and podcast MY AMERICAN FRIEND we had a clear idea in mind : friendship.

Making friends from all over the world not only is a great way to improve the language, but it is also a precious possibility to get rid of borders and to open up our minds.

Wishing you guys all the best !
