I will use mixed teaching approaches focused on communication in order to improve your understanding, develop your vocabulary, your speaking abilities and comprehension skills.For this purpose, I will use materials such as audio clips, pictures, comics, language learning games, newspaper articles and movie clips. No more will you feel lost when you immerse yourself in Italy whether on a business trip or on holiday.
The teaching method will be planned according to your interests and needs, whether you are an Italian cinema lover or a book worm, or you simply want to visit the country. The learning experience will of course be adjusted according to your level and the language you are most comfortable with, be it English or French.
During the first class I will test your level in order to appropriately plan the learning program.
I will also give some practice tips you can do during the week such as a list of the best free apps, software and other media. Learning a language is not one or two hours of class per week, it is an everyday exposition to it. I'm really flexible with my time and I can be available according to your needs.
I can assure you it will be a fun, useful and rich experience.
