About World of Words

World of Words offers Spanish and Italian translations, Spanish, Italian and English classes, and marketing, public relations (PR) and event planning services. Our experience includes translating birth certificates from Italian to English to translating profit sharing plan distribution forms from English to Spanish, and more. We teach Spanish, Italian and English in the Chicagoland area and Northwest Indiana region. Our lessons are geared toward learning another language through exploring grammar and vocabulary in a cultural context and fun activities. We also offer private lessons based on the requests and needs of our students.

About The Owner

Ivana Sedia (née Gentile) was born in Argentina, she is half Italian and half Macedonian and she moved to the U.S. with her parents in 1989. She is fluent in Spanish, Italian, and English, and semi-fluent in Macedonian. Ivana attended Dominican University where she received her MBA in management in 2016 and her bachelor degrees in communications and international relations and diplomacy with a minor in Italian in 2011. Throughout her life, Ivana was involved in her family’s businesses and did work such as writing in Spanish and English for a magazine. Her first full-time job was when she worked for the Illinois Secretary of State where she assisted immigrants who do not speak English. After becoming a mother, Ivana decided to leave that job. To keep herself busy and updated, Ivana found herself translating documents and teaching Spanish and Italian on the side. She realized that there was a need for her fast and efficient translating service and a huge interest in learning Spanish and Italian from her surrounding communities, so World of Words was born.

Reviews

The thought of trying to find someone to translate paperwork from English to Spanish was a task I was not looking forward to doing. I reached out to World of Words and Ivana promptly got on the work.  The translation was turned around in an impressively timely manner.  I have asked for additional translation work and it was again done in a timely and professional manner.  Moving forward, all my translation work will be done by World of Words!

-Denise Jagiella, Alsip Pallet Company


I truly enjoyed the class! It was fun! I hope you continue to teach! You have a great personality and the ability to teach.

-Branka Romic, Italian Student


Your class is wonderful and your attitude is so up beat. You have provided a variety and you make it fun to learn.

-Ann Barr, Italian Student
