Speak Italian like Italians! Learn with a mother tongue, lessons based on communicative approach.

Ciao! My name is Marika and I am Italian mother language. Learning a foreign language can be extremely difficult. The simplest way is to put into practice what you learn daily, and to do this you need a Tutor to talk to. A friendly and patient person who has already faced the difficulties of learning a new language.
That's why my lessons are based on conversation.
I believe the best way to learn is through speaking without fear - I'll take notes while you speaking and share with you some tools that help you to learn efficiently. "Provando si sbaglia, sbagliando s'impara"! (lear from failure!)


WHY CHOOSE ME:
I will get to know you and find out what your learning style is, so that our lessons are always tailored to you!
My approach is based on conversation. I will shape a method that stimulates conversation and interactivity with a touch of fun. You will improve your pronunciation and memorize many words.

I use games, fantasy situations, and dialogues that stimulate discussion between us. I will also use videos, audio, and articles to improve your speaking, listening, and pronunciation skills.

If you have never studied Italian, I will improve your language skills by guiding you step by step. We will start with phonetics, vocabulary and then with simple presentation dialogues. In a short time, you will find that you begin to understand and speak Italian.

If you have a specific purpose or interest, tell me! We will form a program together and maybe I will learn something from you.

See you soon!

Extra information

Bring a pen and paper. At the end of the lesson, I will give you a little homework.

About Me

Ciao! I'm Marika, an Italian teacher, museum assistant, and tour guide living in London.

I was born in Treviso, a city located in North-East of Italy and famous for the prosecco. I have a BA in Painting and Art History. After graduation, I traveled a lot and faced the challenge of learning a second language - just like you.

My work allows me to use both my mother tongue - Italian - and English to communicate efficiently with visitors in the museum. This increased my passion for languages and led me to teach my language to others, first through language exchange and then by teaching privately in London.

If I am not in the museum or teaching Italian you can find me in the park doing yoga.

Education

The University of Padua, Italy, Master's Degree in History of Art, years 2012-2014
The Academy of Art of Venice, Italy, Bachelor's Degree in Visual Arts, years 2007-2011

Experience / Qualifications

Since moved to London in 2015, I have done language exchange (Tandem) and had been enjoying helping other people understanding my language & culture. Now, I teach Italian privately online.

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 !!

Lezioni di scienze: dalle elementsari ai più curiosi
Today I got the Linguistic Maturità, with curricula in French, English and Spanish. For 5 years I continue to study different languages, in different languages: French, English, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese. Language, interest in grammar, culture and understanding are not secret, per me! With this enthusiasm I will wait for others to stop in a very simple way. Here we learn in the preparation of those written and oral, and in the study of the various disciplines.

Italian Lessons for Beginners, High School Students, University Students and Enthusiasts
Do you want to learn Italian from scratch? Are you already familiar with the basics, but you want to bring your knowledge to the next level? Do you need help for an exam? For these or similar needs I have very structured methods that might be just perfect for you. The assignments or tasks are always based on the main goal which is becoming confident with speaking, writing and reading in real life situations. I'm originally trained as an educator for children and I love teaching trough games and creativity. This is of course also applicable for adults or students on a higher level. To have fun during the learning process is the most important thing for me.

Private Italian lessons from beginner to advanced with an Italian native language
Hi, I'm Paola and I'm a graduate in Italian Literature and I also have a master's degree in Teaching Italian to Foreigners. During the university period I gave private lessons to erasmus students in Italy and now I give individual Italian lessons in Amsterdam and online. I use a book that I integrate with different materials. Conversation is very important, but so is listening and understanding a text. The price for 2 people is higher of course, so send mj a message for more information. A presto!

Learn and improve to speak Italian with a real Florentine

I am a CEDILS-certified Italian teacher born and raised in Florence, and I've also been a language student myself for a long time! If you want to be able to interact with Italians quickly, I can give you some tips about correct pronunciation, fundamental grammar, and vocabulary, but also Italian art and popular culture, which I think is fundamental to understanding the mentality and the country that you are going to interact with.
