Learn and improve to speak and write Italian with a real Florentine

Do you love Italian people, history and food and you would like to speak the language?
I am an Italian native speaker from Florence, and I've also been a language student myself for a long time! If you want to be able to interact with Italians quickly, I can give you some tips about the correct pronunciation and fundamental grammar and vocabulary, but also Italian art and folklore.
Lessons will be tailored according to student's needs, level and mother language.

I am also available to proofread your writings.

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I'm Gemma and my first love is Arabic. In university, I have always been one of the following: I have been a freelancer. I've been working with Media, Tribunals, Researchers etc ... and I have a passion for teaching. I am also a fan of glam rock and traditional music, cinema and cooking.

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.

Really lovely lady and clearly very good as teaching languages.
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.
My first class with Gemma was great- she's patient and personable and makes you feel at ease. Looking forward to more!
Première leçon donc difficile de donner un avis si ce n'est que Gemma semble compétente professionnelle et de plus très sympathique et patiente donc les cours devraient bien ce passer

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

Italian Language Lessons for kids, students, adults (online/offline)
Are you interested in Italian culture and language? Are you planning to move to Italy for work, study, travel, volunteering? Then this class is for you! Italy is one of the countries where not that many citizens speak English language, therefore it might be difficult to adapt to locals without knowing Italian, at least basic one. By this class I would like to immerse you into Basic Italian language and culture. For the teaching purposes, throughout the classes, I will use different highly-rated textbooks of local editions, effective YouTube channels, interesting articles. I will cover main functional areas of Italian grammar and vocabulary within different areas and will make sure that you start speaking since the first class already, since Practice Makes Perfect and Italian is not so difficult as it may seem at first! The goals, needs, expectations will be discussed in person with every student and adapted towards personality. The program and classes content will also depend on the prior mentioned factors. Feel free to contact me for questions and classes.

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.

Federica
Basic, Pre-Intermediate or Advanced class of Italian
As a native Italian speaker, I would love to help people get to know this language more in depth, and help them with the grammar and pronunciation as well. The class can be either focused on the technical part of the language, or it can be just a way to pratice it by having fun and engaging conversations. It doesn't matter whether you are a beginner or at an advanced level, I can help you in both cases! P.S.: Given the current global situation we are all going through, I offer classes online via Skype or FaceTime (or any other app that you suggest!)
