Francesco
Italian language and Japanese language and writing
Foreign languages are what I love most. I studied many languages during high school and university but one in particular followed me for all my life: Japanese. A country where tradition and modernity meets, where punctuality is the rule and whose people make you feel home. Japanese language is not easy at all but its writing and its construction are what makes it very attractive. My goal is to teach you what I learned at my university and in Japan, in a fun, interactive and as understandable as possible way. Not only, I will be happy to teach you my mother language: Italian! Sorry to say that it is not a very easy language as well but wouldn't you feel proud of yourself when during your next travel to Italy you are able to order a pizza in Italian?! Looking forward to help you!

Martha
International Business Culture, Spanish, Mexican History, Japanese
I have 19 years as a professor at Mexican university and right now I'm living in Brussels. I have a PhD. in education and for me it's essential to have dynamic classes that approach with the real life and communicative cases in order to improve the level of the language; the learning process is essential to do in different ways in order to find out which type of learner is the student. I'm very passionate and disciplinate about my teaching, trying also to use the TIC's as tool to support the knowledge received. I try always to be updated as a professor with new technologies, new materials and new techniques in order to give and provide the best class as possible.
