Latin and Italian Class: Practicing and Learning easily

Latin is fascinating and, despite its reputation of being a dead language, it can still be useful today. However, being unique, it is not always easy to understand its grammar and syntax and translating from Latin can be hard. Having studied it since when I was thirteen and with two cum-laude degrees in Classics, I know Latin deeply. Moreover, I have experience in giving classes to high school students, therefore I am aware of its difficulties and I know how to tackle possible hurdles in the most appropriate way for each student.
Apart from Latin, I am an Italian native speaker, trained in Italian language and culture. If you want to strengthen or practice your Italian, I am the right person!


Feel free to contact me if you need help in learning/practicing these two beautiful languages!

About Me

Born in Italy, but always dreamed of travelling the world. When I was eighteen, I worked for one month in The Netherlands and I fell in love with this country. After finishing my bachelor's in Milan, Italy, I decided to move to Leiden for my master's, as this beautiful gem in Holland houses one of the most prestigious Classics program in the whole world.

Education

Bachelor's degree: Università degli Studi di Milano (Italy) - 110/110 cum laude (GPA: 29,7/30)
Master's degree: Universiteit Leiden (The Netherlands) - cum laude (GPA: 8,4/10)

Experience / Qualifications

Besides having excellent marks in Latin classes, I have also experience in training high school students. Both during my Bachelor's and my Master's I got the highest grades in Latin courses.

Roberto
Vuoi parlare l'italiano? Italiano con Rob per tutti
Ciao, my name is Roberto :) 
I graduated in Political and Economic Science at the University of Milan. After working for a year for an American company in Milan, I moved to Australia, where I have worked, studied and traveled for two years.
It has been an incredible experience! I had the opportunity of visiting beautiful places, discovering so many different cultures and developed myself from a personal and professional point of view.
Since two years, I have been living in Haarlem - a wonderful city close to Amsterdam - and to the coast 🌊 - in the Netherlands. I love teaching and helping people to find out more about Italian culture, history, and arts. I would love to use all the modern techniques of teaching that I learned and practiced them with you. Teaching is an extraordinary passion! Parliamo italiano!

Alessandro
Italian linguist from Leiden university offers Italian lesson including personal homework, personalized lessons of grammar and conversation
The difference between a self-learning book and an experienced teacher with a linguistics background is that a book will teach you to understand a specific set of sentences, while after 10 lessons with me you will be able to understand and CREATE new sentences. The focus is on both sets on grammar and on oral comprehension. My advice is therefore to organize a lesson of 90 minutes in which 30 minutes will be dedicated to: - Grammar (how the Italian language works and how to translate) - Reading and listening (comprehension) - Talking (production), with me or other students. My charge will also include: - Weekly homework (if requested) - Lessons prepared on the specific needs of the students - Assistance 24/h about any questions you might have on Italian (and Italy!)

Anna
Italian Grammar and Literature. English Grammar and conversation
I am an Italian native speaker with a bachelor in Italian Literature and Linguistics. In Italy, I usually teach English to high school students​, or adults who want to improve their skills with this language. Usually, I tend to use a non-academic approach, by focusing on the student's interests and make him/her applying the language to their everyday life, instead of simply learning the grammar rules by heart. In my opinion, learning a new language should be fun and easy, nothing too stressful. What you will get from is a new positive and funny way to learn a foreign language such as Italian or English.

Francesca
Italian, French and English language tutoring and private classes
Private tutoring classes for young children, teenagers, adults and seniors who would like to: > Learn Italian, French and/or English from scratch > Do homework with the support of a tutor > Improve and perfect their language skills (speaking, writing, listening and reading) > Prepare for language certifications such as PET, FIRST, TOEFL, DELF, admission exams... > Practice their skills in fun conversations and/or for special occasions About Francesca: I graduated as a translator and interpreter from the University of Geneva (Switzerland) and I lived in different countries where I perfected my accent and pronunciation and I also learnt about the local culture (specifically Italy, Switzerland, France, Germany, Belgium, UK, the US). I love foreign languages and cultures and my goal is to pass this enthusiasm on to my students as they also learn "boring" grammar rules. For me it's all about helping you find a method of language learning that makes it easy for you to remember new words and correct grammar. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Margherita
Italian language from conversation to certification
What best than learning Italian from a native speaker? I am an Italian living in Leiden since 2014. I have a solid gramatic preparation and like to talk of the most disparate subjects. I can help you preparing for your certification as well as improving your pronunciation and your written and oral production

Chiara
Interactive Italian Classes with Native Speaker - All Age Groups
Tired of your italian friends mocking you for your "bad" cooking skills? Bored of using the same old italian phrases while on vacation? Want to give your second-generation kids the chance to fluently communicate with their grandparents? This class is for you, and for whoever fell in love with italian culture and its chaotic people. We will address all language skills (speaking, writing, listening and reading) in a relaxed one-to-one environment, while alternating the necessary grammar and vocabulary learning with language games, music and interactive discussions on news. My class will be held in Italian and English, and it will be tailored to the needs of the student. Assignments will be given after every class.

Ludovica
Italian classes for all ages with Italian speaker, experienced teacher. Also available for conversation and test preparation tutoring.
I am an Italian international law graduate based in Leiden. I have a DILIT diploma to teach Italian to foreigners, meaning that I prefer to use a non-academic approach to teach the Italian language. I have over 5 years experience in teaching and tutoring. I usually teach my classes in Italian, but I can also speak English and Spanish. We will discuss the goals to achieve during the course, based on your wishes and interests, and we will decide together what kind of methodology is the best suited for you!

Chiara
Wanna improve your Italian speaking and grammar skills?
Hello everyone! I'm an Italian expat studying international relations at Leiden University. Back in Italy I used to give English classes to students in need, and I also worked for a while for an association where I taught Italian to African immigrants. Here in Leiden I would like to teach Italian to people who don't only want to improve their grammar skills, but also their conversation skills.

Carola
Italian language: grammar and conversational skills
As an Italian native speaker, I would like to focus not only on grammar and formal aspects of the language, but also on the cultural context in which phrases are used and coversation. My classes will be flexible and adaptable to the student's needs.

Leonardo
Graduate coach offers Italian private lessons for every personal need

Elena
Language teacher (Italian, English and French)
I am Italian but I also speak French and English fluently. I learned French from the age of 4 at the nursery and English from the age of 6. I did my university studies in London (bachelor + master). I have already taught these languages to high school students as well as to adults. My approach is very dynamic, I structure the lessons with theory, grammar, exercises as well as verbal practice. I give my lessons via Zoom or at my office. I am Italian but I also speak French and English fluently. I started learning French at the age of 4 in nursery school and English at school from age 6. I have completed my university's studies in London (bachelor + master). I already taught these languages to students from high school as well as to adults.

Ho completato i miei studi universitari a Londra (bachelor + master). Ho già insegnato queste lingue a studenti del liceo e ad adulti. Il mio approccio alla lezione è dinamico: prima spiego la teoria e la grammatica, poi risolviamo esercizi e per finire pratichiamo la conversazione. Le mie lezioni si svolgono via Zoom o al mio ufficio.

Paola
Private Italian lessons from beginner to advanced with an Italian native language
Hi, I'm Paola and I'm a graduate in Italian Literature and I also have a master's degree in Teaching Italian to Foreigners. During the university period I gave private lessons to erasmus students in Italy and now I give individual Italian lessons in Amsterdam and online. I use a book that I integrate with different materials. Conversation is very important, but so is listening and understanding a text. A presto!

Rosy
English Course, French Foreign Language, Italian
I hope to meet you soon to test your level in the language you want to learn and to be able to establish together a suitable program that can make you progress quickly towards the complete mastery of the foreign language of your choice.

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 !!
