Course for beginners or intermediates that offers both a solid approach to italian language as well as cultural references for travelling and deepening the knowledge of Italy and Italians
My teaching is grounded in two elements: on the one hand a clear understanding of Italian grammar compared to French and English. On the other hand, interactive activities as learning practice. I do ample use of materials such as flash cards, words puzzles, games engaging gestures and embodiment as means of memorizations.
Moreover I devote time to discuss how each students can integrate learning practices in daily life.

ABOUT THE TEACHER
I am originally from Northern Italy and living in Montreal. I have just concluded my Masters in Music Education at McGill University. My thesis explored the embodied musical practice of artists such as Meredith Monk and Paoline Oliveros, to investigate the role of the body in creative processes of learning. I am a freelance music educator and performer with a strong background in pedagogy and teaching.
Masters Degree in Music Education, McGill University, Montreal
Bachelors Degree in Science of Education, University of Bergamo, Italy
Music Diploma: classic flute, Conservatory "Guido Cantelli", Novara, Italy
In Italy I taught lessons to foreigner students preparing for certificate exams. I learned how to create a curriculum to guide students in Italian language learning, from the ground up. I also produced specific didactic materials to reach my students needs and adhere to ministerial standards. Since I arrived in Canada three years ago, I have been giving private Italian lessons to opera singers at McGill University, as well as to families and individuals seeking colloquial Italian.
