I am Maria, an experienced and qualified native speaker Italian teacher. I've been teaching Italian in several schools and cultural centres for 4 years. Furthermore, I'm a CILS and CELI examiner, which are the official certificates of knowledge of Italian given respectively by the university for foreigners of Siena and Perugia, so having a course with me would be the best choice if you want to be prepared for a CILS or CELI exam.
I hold DITALS II, which is the official certificate for teaching Italian as a foreign Language given by the university for foreigners of Siena.
My methodology is strongly based on the communicative approach to the teaching of second languages.
No grammar rules to be learnt by heart, no boring translation or “this is how it works”, just the pure pleasure of full immersion in my wonderful language. For the entire duration of the course you’ll listen to Italian native speakers, songs and radio, read Italian articles and abstracts from books in their original language, you'll have fun watching videos and, last but not least, you'll speak only Italian because you’ll be surrounded by this language.
With me as your tutor, Italian you will spontaneously emerge from your mouth, you’ll be in an ocean of sounds and words to whom you’ll give a meaning… so, don’t wait any longer, start to immerse yourself!
