Learn Italian or Mandarin Chinese with Francesca! Fun and Online

Ciao!
I'm from Rome but I have a clean articulated Italian accent and clean diction. If you need to work on your conversation skills, I can help you reduce your accent, improve fluency and also use the Italian hand gestures!

I’m from Rome and am fluent in Italian, English and Mandarin Chinese. Previously studied in Italy for 5 years, I improved my Chinese translation skills while taking a double BA in Mandarin Chinese and Art History at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London (SOAS). Due to my interest in Chinese language and culture, I had the opportunity to live and study in Beijing for several years. I passed the Chinese Proficiency Test HSK5, and now self-studying for HSK6 (top level).

Don't worry if you are a total beginner, an expert or in the middle, my teaching method is based on active conversation supported by grammar exercises, quizzes and everyday phrases to help you get the most out from the first lesson. The post-session exercises will be tailor made according to your level and needs. You will be followed both online and offline: I will be always open for questions before and after the lesson and actively helping with the most suitable study method for you.

My students are mainly English native speakers, but I'm able to teach Italian also to Mandarin Chinese speakers.

About Me

Hello,

I’m from Rome and am fluent in Italian, English and Mandarin Chinese. Previously studied in Italy for 5 years, I improved my Chinese translation skills while taking a double BA in Mandarin Chinese and Art History at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London (SOAS). Due to my interest in Chinese language and culture, I had the opportunity to live and study in Beijing for several years. In Beijing, I taught English to preschool children and teenagers. I passed the Chinese Proficiency Test HSK5, and now self-studying for HSK6 (highest level). If you are interested in studying IELTS or HSK, I can give you effective tips to succeed. My style of teaching is to have active conversations supported by grammar exercises. It will be a fun interactive class, different from those at school! Looking forward to hearing from you!

- 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.

Sara
Physics, Maths, Natural Science, Biology, Chemistry, Italian and Spanish
My name is Sara, I'm an italian student with a Bachelor Degree in Physics. Currently, I'm doing a Master in Astrophysics in Berlin. I offer private lessons of Physics and Mathematics for students of different ages. I have accumulated a lot of experience with many different students, having worked also as a Tutor in my University in different support courses. My native language is Italian (so it could be also a chance, if you're interested, to learn in another language), but I speak fluent English and Spanish. I propose adaptive study strategies according to the needs of the student, possibly offering support material such as notes, diagrams and forms. During the lessons, it is possible to face and consolidate together the theoretical part and, gradually, put it into practice with various types of exercises.

Taiwanese Mandarin Classes : dealing with the problems you encountered in real daily life with Chinese in Taiwan
My teaching style is to let learners choose the topics they want, whether it's about their interests, asking questions, or to focus on the issues they encountered in their daily life with Chinese in Taiwan. I also make customize materials for them so that they can review or preview even they are not in class. I like to let my learners be the person who chooses the topic for our class since I thought that's more helpful for learning a language - learn the things you want (but not the offensive topics) or learn the things for solving the problem you encountered with Chinese. I also let my students be able to read tickets from banks, to understand what natives said in text, to practice what to say when get to glasses stores, even learned things about eyelashes in Chinese .etc by learners' need. I offer classes whether for listening, speaking, reading and writing. For the Chinese conversation in my class, we can role-play and you can try to speak more and more as you can. Don't be afraid to say something wrong. I invite you to make more and more mistakes when you use this language in my class. If you make more mistakes, you can learn more from them and be more impressive. I would help you so no worries! Just have fun together and improve together.
