About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I'm Gemma and I am passionate about languages and our ability to learn and understand them. My first love is Arabic. I've traveled to Morocco, Egypt, and Tunisia, where I settled for almost seven years and I regularly visit the country for long periods. Here I've been working with Media, tribunals, researchers, NGOs until I discovered that my real vocation is teaching. I deeply believe that education is the key to bettering mankind. I am also a fun of glam rock, folk tales and music.

Education

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I have a "classical" education. I studied Italian language and linguistics, ancient Greek and Latin. Then, I studied Arabic for seven years obtaining a master in Classical Arabic. However, as I am really passionate about dialects, I specialized in North African Dialects, especially Tunisian. I also have a master degree in International and Intercultural Negotiation and I traveled around North Africa to study in several accredited Arabic Schools for Foreigners. I love teaching Italian to foreigners and I am attending webinars and online classes to deepen my knowledge of innovative ways to teach my mother language online. Recently I also obtained the CEDILS teaching certification from Ca' Foscari University of Venice.

Gemma est professionnelle et sympathique. C'est devenu un vrai plaisir d'apprendre l'italien pour moi.
Super premier cours d'Italien, merci beaucoup Gemma ! Je recommande !
Gemma fait preuve de professionnalisme et de pédagogie: ses plans de leçons sont organisés et elle propose des activités à faire à l'extérieur des cours en préparation pour le cours suivant, ce qui est grandement apprécié. Par ailleurs, elle est facile d'approche faisant en sorte que je me suis sentie tout de suite à l'aise et en confiance.
Les cours avec Gemma sont vraiment super bien. Le cours est bien structuré et Gemma est très gentille et agréable à discuter avec.
Great first lesson. Gemma is a real pleasure to work with.
...
This class is about learning Tunisian Arabic to easily interact with Tunisians. Tunisian Arabic is not the first dialect you hear about when you start to learn Arabic, but it is indeed one of the most fascinating and useful, especially if you are working in Tunisia, your partner is Tunisian or you are into North African social studies. It occurred to you to be told that Tunisian Arabic has no grammatical or syntactic rules because it's not real Arabic? Well, that's not true! I can reveal you some tips to speak and sound Tunisian even if you don't know anything about Arabic. We will talk, play, watch videos from Tunisian tv programs and learn about language and culture. I also do transcriptions and translations of documents and videos into French and Italian for academic researchers, journalists, and entrepreneurs.

ARABIC /Tunisian Dialect for foreigners in Tunisia with a Native
Tunisian Dialect is without a doubt one of the most fascinating languages in the world. It is a beautiful mixture of Arabic, French and a bit of Italian. It may be confusing at first but if you dedicate the time to study it you will start communicating with natives here in no time, plus Tunisians are very kind so you will have no problem starting a conversation with a total stranger. Just message me if you are interested in learning the Tunisian dialect and let's get your journey started. Languages I can teach with : French, English and German

Chiara
Italian language classes for all ages - both online and in person (The Hague)
In our first class, I will discuss with you what you want to focus on (conversation, grammar, vocabulary, etc.) and we will design together the course. I do believe that tailored classes are way more efficient. That's why I would like to talk to you about your needs and what you want to achieve with the classes, in order to make the perfect program and make the best out of the time we have. My goal is to make you improve your language skills while getting passionate about the Italian language. I will try to provide fun and interesting material and create nice activities aimed at improving your skills while never getting bored. I am available for both online and in person classes in The Hague.

Italian Lessons for everyone: from beginners to masters
Italian might not be the most widely spoken language on earth, but surely it sounds lovely and sweet! I present myself, my name is Simone and am a student of International Studies in The Hague. I am Italian and so I can offer various levels of teaching, from the very basic to the advanced "tools" one can encounter in a formal-talk situation. I am comfortable teaching to children, teenagers, and adults. Feel free to ask any further questions!

Learn Italian - For all levels! Corso per tutti
Ciao! Do you want to order your next dinner at the Italian restaurant with a perfect pronunciation? Or maybe you want to know better Italy and its culture for your next trip? In everything in each case I have the perfect course for you. I am a young Italian from Rome who came to Geneva to study at the Conservatory and I give Italian lessons for all levels and all students. The course is modeled on your requirements: you can choose and alternate between grammar, vocabulary, conversations, culture and literature. I can give homework after each lesson to help you work gradually. If you already take an Italian course at school and you want private lessons you can also do specific work on your weaknesses. See you soon / A presto!

Valentina
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.

Alice
Graduate teacher for exam assistance, essay writing, general culture or guided tours
I give private lessons in art history for three years, either for students who need an accompaniment, or for the curious who want to enrich their artistic culture. My teaching adapts precisely to the needs of each student and especially to their way of assimilating information. Former student in difficulty, I developed a method that allows to analyze any type of work, from classical to contemporary, without prior knowledge. I am specialized in the methodology of dissertation / dissertation according to the rules of the French University. (Construction of the plan, development of a common thread, layout etc.) Passionate, I also like to transmit the wonderful stories of the works during introductory courses in art history, artistic culture or guided tours of the museum. My classes are also convivial moments where we can talk about our personal interests, which allows me to direct my students to exhibitions, readings or events related to their subject. My goal is obviously to make my students autonomous, so I give them all the tools they need to know how to provide excellent work without being dependent on the particular teacher at the end of the year. My last students: - Zaïd: redoubling for the second time his degree in Visual Arts at the Sorbonne because of theoretical subjects, passed his exams successfully this year. He regained confidence and taste to study. -Claire: student at Boulle school in woodcarving redoubled because of his memory. I supervised him in the writing of his new dissertation mixing literary analysis, artistic and scientific discoveries. She validated it brilliantly. -Tian: 30 years old, Chinese student, had no knowledge of the history of Western art. After one year of private lessons, she was admitted to the GRETA School of Guides Speakers. -Aude: I guide Aude and her two teenage children in the big museums to discover the little stories behind each painting. From the Palais de Tokyo to the Louvre Museum I invent for them playful ways to apprehend the works. - Jacqueline: 94, had lost her good humor and was bored. For two years now, we meet every week for a moment of sharing and exchange around artistic themes chosen especially for her. It's a joy for everyone.
