Italian

Lessons are tailored to the student's needs and interests. Available to tackle grammar or cultural topics on request. The emphasis is placed on lexical usage and interaction: building vocabulary and appropriateness. Grammar is always contextualised within a communicative approach: I avail myself of authentic materials, written or interactive exercises, excerpts from books, newspapers, magazines, blogs, videos. Cross-cultural implications are of central importance, so my lessons give an insight into the Italian way of life, art history, literature, cooking, music etc. I live in Valpolicella, an area renowned for its wine and situated in the province of Verona, Italy, the romantic town of Romeo and Juliet, of the Arena and its opera season. . . I can help you discover some of the most charming tourist attractions of northern Italy, with reference to authentic materials.

About Me

Foreign languages are my passion and I work as a freelance translator, so also my native language, Italian, is important. A high level of proficiency in the target language is required in my job, for this reason I would like to use my knowledge teaching to foreigners as well. I got the Cedils certification that testifies my didactic competence for teaching Italian as a foreign language. I avail myself of authentic materials to make my lessons enjoyable and motivating: written or interactive exercises, excerpts from books, newspapers, magazines, blogs, videos, lyrics, games. Cross-cultural implications are not neglected and I try to give an insight into the Italian way of life, art history, cooking, music etc. I live in Valpolicella, an area renowned for its wines situated in the province of Verona, the romantic town of Romeo and Juliet, of the Arena and its opera season. I could help you discover some of the most charming places and masterpieces in Northern Italy. . .

Beginner and intermediate Italian courses (A1-B1), learning the Italian language
This course is for beginners and intermediates, from level A1 to B1. I adapt it to the profile of each one after having assessed the faculties present and the points to be reinforced. The course is mainly focused on oral practice and listening comprehension of Italian, including the necessary theoretical points if necessary. Each lesson is built with the learner for a specific goal to achieve. I try to deliver accurate feedback at the end of each class. Feel free to contact me for more information.

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 !!

During the university period I gave private lessons to erasmus students in Italy and now I give individual Italian lessons in Amsterdam and online.

Daniele
Italian lessons and lessons for foreigners at all levels
I am a teacher and tutor of Italian Language for Foreigners with a Master's degree in teaching Italian as a language for foreigners from the Ca' Foscari University of Venezia and the DITALS certification (Certificate of aptitude in didactics of Italian to foreigners) of the University for Foreigners of Siena (Italy). The course and my method of teaching the language are based on a communicative approach: the student will learn the language gradually by using it and communicating in a real language and not abstract. To achieve this goal, many activities will be offered using authentic teaching materials such as newspaper articles, pages from novels, movie scenes, song lyrics and many more.

Claudia Lisseth
Learning Italian in fun way with Native Speaker, 6 years of experience. Cinema, culture, literature
Try a lesson with me! you will see that from the first lesson you can already formulate a few sentences in Italian. For me it is very important that the student can communicate in the language that is learning, so we will have a lot of conversation. In a few lessons you will be able to communicate in Italian! My lessons are fun and dynamic, don't worry! You can count on me for any doubt or question. My methodology focuses on oral expression, making you feel comfortable expressing yourself in Italian, since speaking is the form of communication that we use the most, although it is hardly practiced in the classroom. Of course, we will also review the rest of the communication areas and we will pay special attention to the grammatical issues on which we have to work. I like to teach, focusing on the strengths of my students, giving them confidence to achieve their goals. You will naturally gain your speaking skills through classes with me, I have didactic materials but I focus on helping you improve listening and speaking in our conversations more. I love teaching not only the language but also the culture, we can do conversation about cinema, literature and music from Italy. It would be my pleasure to teach all levels, beginners are very welcome! All kids and adults are welcome too!

Silvia
Online private lessons in Italian language, culture and lifestyle. All levels. Master of Arts Leiden University, Ditals I.
If you wish to brush up your Italian, resume a past series of lessons, or simply start from scratch learning Italian, this is the right lesson for you! I like to personalize each class/course according to the needs and goals of my students. My classes are focused on improving the student's communication skills. At beginner and lower intermediate levels, I prefer using a text book/ student book in the first part of the class. I usually use "Nuovissimo Progetto Italiano" and "Arrivederci" by Edilingua, or "Nuovo Espresso" and "Dieci" by Alma Publishing. For the second part of the lesson, I create engaging contents using original videos, press articles, extracts from blogs and social media, literary texts. If the students does not feel comfortable using Italian from scratch, I can switch to English, German or Dutch. The course comprises the correction of home assignments.

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.
