Improve your Italian conversation skills with informal sessions

Whether you have been learning Italian for some time or have begun out of boredom during lockdown, chances are you may want to test your skills and get better at conversation.

I'm a PhD student at UCL and I have lived in London for the past seven years. As I have no formal training in teaching languages this would not be an Italian class, but simply an informal, relaxed way to improve your conversation.

We can meet in person (Hackney) or over Zoom/Skype/Whatsapp (we are all familiar with all of those by now!) and have a chat. I will help you with vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar, with any homework you may have to do or correct stuff you have written. It is all very flexible and lead by your needs, desires and curiosity.

Umberto

PS: Yes, I can also train you in the various Italian gestures so that you'll be a pro next time you visit Italy =)

And I'm looking forward to meeting you! Are you ready to embark on an incredible adventure through the enchanting world of Italy, Italians, and gestures? :-) We begin by assessing your level, goals, and needs. Together, we craft a personalized plan, ensuring that your learning experience is tailored, efficient, and effective. The classes are tailored to suit your individual level, needs, and goals.

Italian conversation lessons - Beginner to Advanced
Ciao! I am a native Italian and English speaker and I have been teaching teenagers and adults in the last ten years. A History, Cultural Heritage and Chemistry graduate, I am especially passionate about linguistics and different cultures! Our conversation lessons will help you learn and practice your Italian, whether you are a beginner or want to perfect the language. Topics will be tailored to your needs and can range from basic scenarios to more specific ones (professional, travel or cultural context). When necessary we can focus on specific grammar rules and expand vocabulary that is more important to you. Approach - I always encourage the student to develop a personal connection to the language by exploring personal interests and real-life language use. In my lessons, I favour a flexible approach and encourage regular practice, which will definitely help you to develop your Italian and keep it active in the long run.

Language classes: Italian and Spanish for students or adults, preparation for exams
My name is Aurora, I have a degree in environmental sciences and a master's degree in microbiology. I am Italian and I have been living in Madrid for three years. I offer individual Italian classes: my goal is to advance the student without overloading him. I give homework after each lesson and periodically provide progress reports.

Giorgia
Italian language lessons from a native speaker - any level
Hello everyone! I'm Giorgia and I come from Torino, Italy. I offer my native knowledge of Italian to any of you, who wants to discover this beautiful language. I teach for all levels, from very beginners to advanced speakers, passing through amateurs or simply curious of any age. I can also help with university exams and school works/assignments. Being a pianist and a piano teacher, I already have lots of experience with teaching and pedagogical approach with the whole range of ages. The lesson is intended to meet the student needs: the focus can be on the grammar, conversation or literature. In case of a middle-level speaker, the lesson will cover all four language's abilities: listening, speaking, writing and reading. My suggestion of a well planned lesson is, for any level, to divide it into two parts: grammar first and then conversation (covering all the abilities mentioned above). Thank you for your attention and looking forward to meeting you !!

Valeria
Fun Learning private classes! Italian, English or Spanish: contact me!
My classes are aimed at all those who, for reasons of study or work, need to learn or improve a language. The classes are personalized, that is, they adjust to the strengths, needs, abilities and interests of each student. The material on which the classes focus is planned according to the objectives to be achieved, which vary depending on the student. I usually propose activities that cover all skills unless the student does not have a specific need, for example, just practicing conversation. It should be specified that my classes also cover, in a transversal way, the cultural aspect of each country. For example: festivals and customs, gastronomy, sayings, music and much more.
