Conversations in Italian with native speaker, former radio presenter, music and stage professional, arts lover. Keep your Italian going!

Italian is a language officially spoken in Italy only, unlike Spanish, or English, to name the most spoken languages in the western world. But it's becoming more and more a must-know language for many, whether the connection with it comes through food, fashion, Opera, design, the arts in general, or any other of the many interesting sides of Italian culture to make it outside "the boot"'s borders. I have been doing Italian conversation lessons for a few years, it has always been a great pleasure for me to share the beauty of Italian language with people showing a genuine interest in my culture. I tend to keep the conversation fully in Italian, but there would be no problem at all with communicating in English if necessary. I give grammar support when needed, and I have a real interest in etymology and words in general if there's an interest in going deeper in the language. Along with the use of precious grammar books and language manuals, the best way to get into a language is to speak it, even more so if with someone giving you support with its correct pronunciation, and its actual use in a realistic scenario. Like most Italians I have an obsession with good food, I love cooking and I'm always happy to share my recipes and cooking tips. Food is a great conversation subject, and it can give you new skills! All ages and levels welcome. For the youngest, I have a degree in primary school education and I've been a music teacher for over thirty years.

About Me

MUSIC: My background is classical piano, but as a professional musician I have approached music also from different angles. As a teacher I enjoy a creative and open approach, any interesting musical language is welcome in the lesson. I make sure I pick the right music to meet the pupil's interests and tastes, and I integrate classical music both as a precious technique tool, and as a great territory to explore. Lessons can include listening/analysing practice, sing and play practice, rhythm practice, songwriting.
ITALIAN CONVERSATION: I was born in Milan to a southern Italian family, and grew up in Trieste. I have a few years experience in Italian conversation lessons, and I always enjoy them immensely. I can give support on grammar, pronunciation, general knowledge of Italian culture and way of life.

Edoardo
Enthusiastic tutor in economics, maths and Italian
Hello, everyone! My name is Edoardo. I received my master's degree in International Finance and Economic Development from the University of Kent, and I have experience in business intelligence consultancy and sales & marketing. I taught as a private tutor for five years in subjects such as economics, maths, Italian, English, and guitar to middle school, high school, and university students. I tutor students at all levels of education (including Primary, KS3, IB, GCSE, A-level, and Undergraduate Degree) and adults. My teaching is results-oriented and focuses towards a precise goal (such as an exam), but I am also very keen on making people passionate about their studies. I would be delighted to answer any questions and offer clarification outside of lessons' time too. If you are looking for a professional, dedicated, and friendly teacher, I am the one for you! See you soon!

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 !!

Fernando
Learn Spanish through culture: native teacher from Argentina
¡Hola! I'm Fernando, a Spanish teacher with more than five years of teaching Spanish online. I specialize in teaching Spanish through culture, with entertaining content adapted for beginners, intermediate and advanced students. Over time I have developed learning programs but still, all classes are individual and personalized. For beginners: We'll start with the basics. I will teach you how to master the necessary tools to communicate and understand Spanish. Basic grammar, but always focused on the conversation. Intermediate learners: We will create cultural consumption habits. Not only will your learning be much faster, but the fixation of content will happen naturally and with less effort. We will expand your vocabulary through the study and analysis of Spanish language media, general interest articles, literature, culture, or sports. For more advanced learners: I will help you to develop your vocabulary to express your opinions accurately. You will learn to identify the connotation of the messages in Spanish and, therefore, you will be able to express your opinions in an accurate and loquacious way.

"Online Turkish Lessons with a Guaranteed Speaking Practice with a Turkish Teacher 🤓 / Over 6 Years of Experience 👨‍💻 / Easy Learning Met
Hello, my name is Yunus Emre. I'm Turkish and live in Izmir. I can't wait to learn Turkish with you.🤗 I love teaching Turkish. If you want, I would like to briefly tell you how we can learn Turkish.🤓 First, in our first lesson, we determine your level together📝 and start our lessons suitable for your level. Our lessons include reading📕, writing✏️, listening🧏🏽‍♀️, and speaking🗣️. I want you to read and translate reading passages in the reading section. Here, we write down and memorize the new words and verbs we learn.🧠 Then, after listening to a text related to our topic, I want you to explain in Turkish what you understood. Of course, understanding the texts might be a bit difficult at first, but we overcome this and learn together. 💪Then, we come to the most fun part, of course, the speaking part. In this part, we talk about the texts we have read and listened to before. Of course, we try to use new words and verbs more. I love people who talk a lot in my classes. It's not a problem even if it gives me a bit of a headache🤕😁 As long as you learn🙏❤️. And finally, I give you a writing assignment related to the topic and eagerly await our next lesson. Also, you can contact me anytime outside of class.📲 I look forward to having you in my class and getting to know you and learning Turkish together. Take care.👋🏾

Learn Italian from a Roman artist in Rotterdam - order your coffee like a pro
Ciao! I have been teaching Italian for the past twelve years. I have taught privately and at language schools like La Scuola Italiana del Greenwich Village in New York and ItalCultura, the school of the Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago. During the first few lessons I will make sure you have the tools to pronounce and identify all the sounds of the Italian language. This step is essential! And it will make everything easier afterwards. When I teach Italian I try to avoid all the things that I hated as a language student. We will use real songs, real literature, do real conversation and storytelling. When you are engaging all your senses it is easier to keep your mind relaxed and to remember new words. I will customize my materials to your interests, needs and desired pace. And because you are learning from a native Italian you will also learn about Italian culture and history. You will absorb a way of thinking, not just grammar rules. I speak a bunch of languages so I know a thing or two about how tedious language classes can be. My terrifying French teacher in middle school made us repeat the same fake dialogue from a really bad book ad nauseam, over and over and over again. Some of those dialogues are carved in my brain: “Bonjour, je m’appelle Richard Drapeau, je viens du Canada, je suis Canadien...” When I teach Italian I try to avoid all the things that I hated as a language student. We will use real songs, real literature, do real conversation and storytelling and we will go on “talking walks” because when you are engaging all your senses it is easier to keep your mind relaxed and to remember new words. I hold a degree in Lingue e Letterature Straniere (Foreign Languages and Literatures) from Università Roma Tre (equivalent to an American MA) and a Master’s of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Arts and Media from Columbia College Chicago. I wrote a thesis about translating a long epic poem by W. H. Auden and I tried to ride a horse across America.

Lara
The magnificent ITALIAN language from an Italian girl!
Italian is one of the most beautiful language in the whole world; and what’s better than learning it from an Italian girl without having to move from your couch? Absolutely nothing. I’m Lara and I’m a 21 years old student in Pavia. I’d love to introduce you to this language via webcam online. I speak English very fluently as well and I’m also nice and used to be around children, if you need lessons for your younger son or daughter.
