I'm an Italian native speaker full-time teacher, I have a degree in Italian Studies (I studied in particular general linguistics, Italian and Latin language and literature, teaching techniques of foreign languages) and I am constantly looking for more innovative teaching methodologies.
I currently live in Rome, where I work as an Italian teacher for foreigners, but I love traveling and for this reason I have visited many countries around the world because knowing different cultures fascinates me.
I have taught Italian and Latin in public schools in Italy for about ten years. Currently I teach mainly Italian for foreigners, in particular for foreign managers who need professional/business Italian courses for their companies' activity.
I still remember my first Italian lesson: it was amazing, because I immediately understood that I loved what I was doing, and time passed in a blink of an eye!
I always do my best for every student and when I see that my students, lesson after lesson, become able to speak the language they want to learn and that they follow the courses with pleasure, it makes me love this work more and more.
My lessons include many topics: from leisure, to holidays, sports, personal interests, weather for beginners to projects and wishes for the future and current topics for intermediate and advanced levels.
I follow a communicative/deductive method, which allows the students to practice the language from the first lesson and learn the language as quickly and spontaneously as possible.
You do not need specific prerequisites, as I speak Italian during all my lessons, from beginners to advanced level, to help you learning this language in the proper way.
I also helped many students preparing their CELI and CILS test and I just applied to become an official CELI examiner.
My keywords: don't be afraid to make mistakes because knowledge comes from mistakes!
