Experience / Qualifications

Parlando Italiano - My Italian Lessons
Italian Teacher | London |Feb 2017 - current
Provided group lessons and one-to-one tuition to a diverse range of students including professionals working with Italian companies, teachers interested in learning more about Italian linguistics and etymology, and people interested in Italian culture for family or personal reasons.
Developed bespoke programs for each student, tailoring the classes on their specific needs and interests; used a variety of tools and media (simulation of both magazines and job interviews, role-playing games, analysis of movie clips with different accents) and multi-approach techniques to suit the students best.
Designed and realised a wide collection of effective didactic sheets, placing emphasis on the graphics and entertaining aspects of the teaching materials. Focused the material on the more challenging aspects of Italian language, gathered through my years of teaching experience with students from all over the world (from Spain, UK, USA, Latin America, Pakistan, India, Australia, North Africa, China.)

GLOBAL Formación Empresarial, Proyecto Idiomas Calzedonia
Italian Teacher | Barcelona | Oct 2014 - Dec 2016
Organised Italian language classes for the Spanish employees of Calzedonia España, from Beginners to Advanced. Created all the teaching material –grammar and vocabulary worksheets, exercises and supplementary in-depth readings, etc. – and put together a customised textbook specific to the employees' needs. The students learned to give presentations in Italian, to talk at the Fashion Committee meetings in the Verona headquarters, to offer technical support to Italian colleagues, and to deal with all sorts of tasks that required fluency in Italian.

Parlando Italiano - Clases de Italiano
Italian Teacher | Barcelona | Jan 2015 - Oct 2016 (current company)
Provided Italian lessons at home, in-company, or online, on demand. While at this school I had the chance to work with the Spanish artist Vega tutoring her during the recordings of her last CD “Non ho l'età,” in which she covered famous old Italian songs. We focused on Italian phonetics and intonation.

Learn Italian online with experienced and professional teacher , easy and fast.
Italian (italiano [itaˈljaːno] (About this soundlisten) or lingua italiana [ˈliŋɡwa itaˈljaːna]) is a Romance language. Italian, together with Sardinian, is by most measures the closest language to Vulgar Latin of the Romance languages. Italian is an official language in Italy, Switzerland, San Marino, Vatican City and western Istria (in Slovenia and Croatia). It formerly had official status and is still widely spoken in Albania, Malta, Monaco, and in some parts of France (especially Corsica, Nice, Savoie), Greece (Ionian Islands and Dodecanese) and Montenegro (Kotor), as well as in former Italian East Africa and Italian North Africa regions where it plays a significant role in various sectors. Italian is also spoken by large expatriate communities in the Americas and Australia. It also has official minority status in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Slovenia and Romania. Many speakers are native bilinguals of both standardized Italian and other regional languages. Italian is a major European language, being one of the official languages of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe and one of the working languages of the Council of Europe. It is the fourth most widely spoken first language in the European Union with 69 million native speakers (13% of the EU population) and it is spoken as a second language by 16 million EU citizens (3%). Including Italian speakers in non-EU European countries (such as Switzerland and Albania) and on other continents, the total number of speakers is around 90 million.Italian is the main working language of the Holy See, serving as the lingua franca (common language) in the Roman Catholic hierarchy as well as the official language of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta. Italian is known as the language of music because of its use in musical terminology and opera. Its influence is also widespread in the arts and in the luxury goods market. Italian has been reported as the fourth or fifth most frequently taught foreign language in the world.

Emma
- Italian language; Italian course or conversation.
- I´m a professional Italian teacher from Italy, now living in Rome. I have 8 years teaching experience. I am very patient and I love to make a relaxed and friendly class environment. I have qualifications and experience teaching at different levels and in different contexts. I can help the student to improve the oral, written, and comprehension skills. Most important is that each course is based on the needs, interests and availability of the student. - The method is mainly what is called communicative, aimed at stimulating the student to speak immediately and put the focus on the functional aspect of the language. For beginners, I usually follow a specific program, I prepare a course and for each lesson I send students the files that I scan from the various books. Also the lessons can be essentially developed as conversations on specific subjects.

Vittoria
English, Italian, French and German history art and language
Since a young age I fell in love with languages and different currents of literature. I grew up listening to my mom speaking French and my dad speaking German. I am conducting my BA at Leiden University in English, I learnt Mandarin, and am now studying Arabic. I would like not only to help with test preparation or schoolwork: I want to give as much as I can of the beauty and life that is in languages. I try to trigger interest and engagement, I give homework after every session, feedback, wrap ups and extra material. In Milan, where I grew up, my grandmother would read for me good night stories in French and Spanish. I studied German for around ten years and lived in Germany and in Austria, where I took language courses at the University of Vienna: what really fascinated me about German was the literature. Same goes for French, which I studied for five years, obviously while regularly visiting my French part of the family in Provence. During those five years I also studied English, French and German literature and history. I spent one year in Hebei, China: a region where, luckily enough, they speak Mandarin and not a dialect. I have now been studying and working in the Netherlands for one year and a half and I am taking Arabic.

Gianluca
Learn how to speak in italian from the first lesson.
In the words of Nelson Mandela “If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart”. Of all the romance languages, Italian is the closest to Latin and  it is estimated that 60% of English words derives from Latin. Learning Italian will make any other romance language, including Spanish, French, Portuguese and Romanian, more approachable and easier to learn. Italian is an incredibly beautiful and intricate language and studies show that learning a new language increases analytical thinking skills. Studying a foreign language stimulates the brain, by boosting problem solving skills and improving  memory. Just how easy is it to learn Italian? Well, according to the Foreign Service Institute, the US government’s premier language training institution, Italian is considered a Category 1 language on their “Language Difficulty Ranking.” Another reason Italian is considered an easy language to learn is because of the close kinship between spelling and pronunciation. There’s a strong correlation between how you spell a word and how you pronounce it. There’s not an abundance of silent letters, missing sounds and spellings that have got nothing to do with how the word is spoken. My students usually starts to communicate in Italian, in a relatively short time , practically from the first lesson! Learn the most romantic language in the world by having fun and with the most effective method on the market: no textbook, no complicated directory.
