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.

Emma
- Italian language; Italian course or conversation.
- I´m a professional Italian teacher from Italy, now living in Rome. I have 8 years teaching experience. I am very patient and I love to make a relaxed and friendly class environment. I have qualifications and experience teaching at different levels and in different contexts. I can help the student to improve the oral, written, and comprehension skills. Most important is that each course is based on the needs, interests and availability of the student. - The method is mainly what is called communicative, aimed at stimulating the student to speak immediately and put the focus on the functional aspect of the language. For beginners, I usually follow a specific program, I prepare a course and for each lesson I send students the files that I scan from the various books. Also the lessons can be essentially developed as conversations on specific subjects.

Private Italian language lessons for all levels
I offer Italian language courses for all levels. If I am asked for academic support (from primary to university), it will mainly be a question of reviewing, with the pupil or the student, the points of the subject which pose a problem to him (grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, etc.). If I am asked for a general learning of the Italian language, it will be mainly, but not exclusively, a learning by dialogues in Italian language, which will allow the student, as and when, to acquire vocabulary, understand grammar and fix linguistic structures in your head. I also offer oral conversation classes for anyone who wants to express themselves in Italian more fluently and improve their oral comprehension of the language. Serious guaranteed. The course is given by videoconference (Skype, Teams, Zoom, WhatsApp, etc.)
