Learn Italian

Lingua italiana (A1)

(Italian Language (A1))

Course description:

Inizieremo a conoscere la lingua italiana, dalle sue basi. Incominceremo con una parte grammaticale e di vocabolario, che verranno di volta in volta sviluppati per essere utilizzati in situazioni comunicative reali. La lingua di comunicazione all'interno del corso resterà sempre l'italiano.

We'll start to unravel the Italian language, from its bases. We'll begin with some grammar and vocabulary, which we'll develop to be used in real-life communication situations. The course will be held primarily in Italian, to favor a quicker and more effective learning process.

Vamos a empezar a aprender la lengua italiana desde las bases. Arrancaremos con un poco de gramatica y vocabulario, para después inserirlos en situaciones comunicativas reales. El idioma de comunicacion entre alumnos y profesora va a ser primariamente el italiano, para favorecer el aprendizaje.

Teaching approach:

I do value grammar - not "per se" but as a potential tool of learning. With me, you will never learn a grammar rule, but rather a grammar "trick". Grammar is the hidden logics of languages and I'll show you how easy it actually is to learn a new language! You'll read short texts, use video support, write personal texts - and I promise it's not going to be as difficult as you think! I will teach you to feel confident and completely at ease in the learning process, just contact me!
