Hi, welcome to my profile!
My name is Alessia and I currently live in Italy. I lived some years in America where I deepened my knowledge of English and American dialects. I am currently specializing in the Spanish and German. In all these years I have given private lessons of Italian, English, Spanish and Japanese, at the moment the most required language. Regarding Japanese, I had the opportunity to experience the teaching of the language in an American College with a native Japanese teacher, implementing the method that they themselves use to learn their language. I will help you in a simple way; conversation is really important to learn a language and even more a good method. No days spent on textbooks are needed, constancy and fun during lessons are the most important part for learning. You will see the results immediately! I am patient, flexible and I will adapt in all ways to your personal needs. I'll wait for you on my profile for the trial lesson and discover an easy and fun method to learn a language as soon as possible.
Thank you Martina!
Hello, my name is Francesca.
I am qualified Italian teacher.
I love teaching and my lessons are always tailored on your goals. During the first lesson, we will identify what you want to learn or to improve and I will design your lessons.
My approach is largely conversational: that is role-plays, informal conversation or other activites to help you. I welcome beginners right up to proficient speakers.
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!
