Ask me about Jamaica! Are you curious to learn more about Jamaica- to go beyond Reggae and Jerk? Its history, people, politics and culture?

Ever wondered about life in Jamaica beyond the lights of Kingston’s allure? This class offers an ethnographic journey of practises and cultures in rural Jamaica, illustrated through photos, songs and videos. Let's explore life in rural Jamaica!

Born and raised in a remote rural district/village, I will take you on an authentic journey of first hand experiences- reliving fond childhood memories, the stories my grandmother told me and what a typical day is like. This will be grounded in the history and culture of Jamaica.

Coming from a background in diplomacy, sharing about Jamaica's culture and historical experiences has always been essential for opening the door to a deeper unerstanding. I have an avid interest in other cultures and always take the time to explore wherever I go. Having been to South and Central America, Asia, North America and Europe, I know the unique value of such rich experiences. Whenever I was home-sick while posted abroad, talking about my homeland was the only cure.

I will share with you all there is about living in rural Jamaica, from different perspectives of my childhood, teenage years and adult life. One unique bit is that the district's enduring small farms form the centrepiece around which everything revolves.

Come prepared with a curious mind, and if you want to make notes take your pen and paper or do so on your devices.

It is important for me that your are learning, so I encourage you to ask questions.

Let's go beyond Kington's enigma!

Gemma
Tunisian Arabic, culture and civilization for everyone
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.

Flavia
Italian language class. Speak with confidence from the first lesson!
It is said that speaking a new language makes you see the world differently. How about trying it "through the Italian glass"? 🔎🍕 I promise, it will be fun! This class is for you if you want to learn how to speak Italian like a native or if you want to travel to Italy and have a wonderful experience by speaking this language! I have a Master's degree in Teaching Italian as a Foreign Language and I also work in a language school based in Rome. In my class, I use a communicative approach so that you will start speaking from the get go! You will learn grammar, vocabulary, useful and idiomatic expressions (and of course, Italian gestures 🤌🏻) in a dynamic and effortlessly way. Speaking will cover the main part of the program but art, history, custom and traditions will also play an important role throughout your journey! Feel free to contact me to ask some information about the course!

Généalogie familiale et recherches ciblées - Construire son arbre généalogique
Vous désirez en connaitre un peu plus sur votre histoire familiale, toutefois, vous ne savez pas par ou commencer? Votre grande-tante (ou votre grand-pere peut-etre) vous a fourni des informations sur ce fameux ancetre noble dont la famille descendrait et vous aimeriez en savoir un peu plus sur cet illustre personnage dont on vous a parlé pour confirmer ces dires? Ou alors, vous n’avez simplement aucune information fiable sur vos ancetres au-delà de vos grands parents et cela vous intéresserait de pouvoir nommer vos arrières-grands-parents, découvrir où ils habitaient, quels métiers ils exercaient, ou encore peut etre connaitre leurs hobbys favoris (on peut en effet découvrir énormement d’informations sur nos ancetres grace à des recherches un peu plus poussées). Il se peut également, que vous vous trouviez face à une impasse dans vos recherches et que vous apprécieriez l’aide d’une personne extérieure: quand on est très impliqué dans sa généalogie, il est parfois utile d’avoir un intervenant neutre qui nous aide avec le recul nécessaire pour y voir plus clair et débloquer une situation compliquée. Dans ce cours, je vous propose une immersion dans votre histoire familiale qui vous permettra de mieux connaitre vos ancetres, mais aussi mieux vous connaitre vous-meme.“ Lorsque tu ne sais pas où tu vas, regarde d'où tu viens” (Proverbe Africain). Lors de nos rencontres, nous travaillerons sur les étapes necessaires et essentielles pour découvrir vos racines familiales et créer, petit à petit, un arbre généalogique passionnant et fascinant que vous serez fier/fière de prséenter à votre famille et entourage! Voilà plus de 25 ans que je me suis intéressé pour la premiere fois à l’histoire de ma famille, car j’avais entendu (comme c’est souvent le cas) une anecdote un peu “fantastique” autour d’un fameux ancetre! Mandaté par un proche, j’ai eu pour projet de vérifier cette information. Et c’est ainsi qu’est née ma passion pour cette discipline que j’exerce au quotidien personnellement, ou alors pour aider des clients à mieux organiser leurs recherches et aller de surprises en surprises! C'est lors du confinement de 2020 que j’ai entrepris une formation diplomante en généalogie. D'origines Irlande-USA-Canada et Suisse, mes deux langues principales de travail sont l'anglais et le francais. Je vous propose également mes services si vous désirez me confier la création et la présentation de votre arbre familial. N’hésitez pas à m’en faire part lors de notre premier contact!
