I have a solid experience as a language teacher, and as a language learner! I thus totally understand what it looks like learning a new language. I always put myself into my students' shoes to help them learn the new language and be able to interact. I have been teaching French and Italian to university students, teenagers and adults for over 6 years. If you want to learn a language among French, Italian and English, or you want to improve your communication skills, or simply you want to chat, do not hesitate to contact me.
In my classes I use a task-orientated approach to achieve communicative goals, which means that we learn by doing. I try my best to bring the 'world' to the classroom in order to give my students an authentic learning experience. I like to work on videos, blogs, journals, magazines, podcasts and textbooks, to expose students to the authenticity of the language, and encourage them to speak and immerse themselves in the real world. I love interaction in the classrooms, and I challenge students to get out of their comfort zone by using the language as much as they can.
Teaching is a wonderful profession, and I am proud of being a teacher because I like the idea of helping students to reach their goals while I keep learning and growing professionally and individually with them.
I am familiar with both The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and The American Council on the Teaching of foreign languages (ACTFL). I will be able to advise and guide you through your learning experience.
Group lessons are available, and customized courses are also an option.
I look forward to meeting you and keeping learning with you!
