Italian for culture - travel, the arts, food and fun!

Italian may not be a 'business' language, yet it is so culturally important in many ways. Who doesn't love Italian design and fashion, Italian art and music, holidays in Italy and, of course, Italian food and wine?!

I lived in Italy for 30 years so have experience of its charm...

I offer tailor-made courses, with defined, verifiable goals. using a variety of appropriate resources to create a lively and enjoyable lesson. Whatever the students’ level, I believe language is communication and student confidence is essential!

About Me

When I started my professional language services business in 2008, I chose as a tagline ‘Enabling Understanding’. To me, this expressed the driving vision behind my translation, interpreting and teaching services.

Depending on the student’s age and aims, I always try to teach using a variety of appropriate resources to create a lively and enjoyable lesson.

I believe language is communication and student confidence is essential!

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.

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.

Aprenda o italiano através do cinema and da musica de Italia
Português: Não há um melhor metodo of aprender uma língua that perceber a cultura, as expressões ea arte! Faça o curso de Italiano através da musica do cinema! Gosto de ensinar a língua através da cultura mas também dos expressões típicas. Tenho experiência de 2 anos como professora de italiano com crianças e adultos. Ensino drums as falantes nativos ingleses e franceses. Prepara-te para falar como um verdadeiro italiano Ciao ciao! For my lessons I mix grammar, speaking and listening exercises using grammar books, movies, articles and songs to practice. This is a good method to learn more about Italian culture and language. I have lived in many countries of Europe where I have moved. This allows me to have a basic or advanced knowledge of the language of the language and to make it easier for me to understand. Get prepared to speak Italian (yes also with hands!) :)

Aurélie
Conversation in Italian for adults and children (all levels x)
The learning of a language in addition to its grammatical, lexical and syntactical aspect, also involves the acquisition of automatisms in oral expression that will support the global learning of it. I believe assiduously in the need to speak and to speak again to truly succeed in approaching Italian and its culture. That's why, as a French-Italian, I propose lingua conversations for students of all ages, in a dynamic, relaxed and spontaneous style, because I believe that practicing the language like that allows you to love it and that's the first step towards a serene and valid apprenticeship! The idea is really to communicate !!! although it is obvious that any request for grammar can also be elucidated :)
