Italian classes in Rotterdam! For advanced, intermediate and beginner :)

I was born in Japan and moved to Italy from a young age, but I always practiced Japanese at home and regularly went to Japan for summer study programs.
During my undergraduate studies in France, I started teaching part-time Japanese and Italian.


Last year, I was studying at Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto, where I had the chance to work as a teacher again, together with some translation and interpreting services.
I am very passionate about helping people with language learning processes and sharing with my students my knowledge of my two cultures!

That's why I believe that language classes should follow the student's personality, interests, and objectives :) I am also prepared to assist for official language tests.

When teaching, my main interest is always "how can I help you more"!
Feel free to contact me!
Looking forward to hearing from you,
Ayumi

Learn Italian from a Roman artist in Rotterdam - order your coffee like a pro
Ciao! I have been teaching Italian for the past ten 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.

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!

Modern Greek: an interactive online approach to master speaking, reading, writing, spelling, vocabulary and grammar.
I specialize in teaching Greek to beginners and intermediate students, providing them the foundation to master this difficult language. I cover topics such as word order, grammar, spoken vs. written Greek, conversational and every day Greek, as well as spelling, writing, and pronunciation. Each class can be tailored to the students individual needs. This class is for anybody who just wants to improve speaking/writing, as well as for those just starting out. Lessons can be given online, or in person. Greek is a language that is increasingly spoken, and is useful in many aspects of life, including but not limited to: biology, geometry, medical terminology, etc. With Greece's economy growing, it is an ideal destination to move either as an expat, digital nomad, or as a startup company. I look forward to helping you on your journey of acquiring this language!

This class will have an informal approach to learning the language, adapted to each students' needs and preferences. A diversity of materials will be provided, as well as online resources, all depending on the age of the student. As a German speaker with a C1 level, I am aware of the cultural implications of the language, even though I am not an expert in it, of course. I aim to make every class a fruitful and efficient learning process for the student, but also for me.

French (all levels): from beginners to advanced students
I am offering French classes at all levels for people from different cultural backgrounds. I have given French classes to expats when living in Latin America and want to keep sharing my passion for the French language here in Rotterdam next to my business studies at Erasmus University. I fluently speak French, English, Portuguese, and Spanish. Therefore, I am able to teach French and its tricky grammar in any of these languages. Do not hesitate to contact me if you are ready to take your French skills to a new level!

French talking and reading with vocabulary and grammar lessons
Do you want to learn a new language in a fun and interesting way? Why not french? France is only a few kilometers away from Netherlands ! French is my mother tongue and I have always been fond of learning new languages. I can teach you how to easily and quickly learn french. I master grammar, vocabulary, reading and writing methodologies. As a student myself, I know how hard it may seem to learn a new language. That's why I find interesting to gradually implement new items to the lessons. We can start with listening and studying french videos in order to understand the pronunciation and have a general idea on how to read and enrich your vocabulary. When I feel like you've became more confident, we can start focusing on grammar which is the trickiest part of the french language. I think that we should find pleasure in learning. Adapting my lessons to your necessities is my priority !

Shantidevi
Italian Classes for Beginners, English-speaking Tutor
Hi, my name is Shanti and I’m a first year University Student at Erasmus University College. I am a native Italian speaker and I’m also fluent in English. My classes will focus on covering the basics of the Italian language as well as getting acquainted with Italian culture. My aim is to provide my students with enough grammatical and cultural knowledge to be able to hold a simple conversation. To teach I will mainly focus on conversational skills, however, I will also use handouts to teach grammatical concepts. I come from a family background of teaching, therefore I know most of the skills necessary to get a concept across to my students. My only hope is that by the end of our lessons, my students will have felt like they did a little trip to Italy and back :)
