About me


CIAO I'm Caterina from Italy and I am a certified teacher of italian as a foreign language. I live by the Adriatic sea, in a small touristic city. I love my country, my language and helping people in learning Italian (also food for sure) :)

I have a perfect italian accent and i can correct you in pronunciation, and together we can try to make you lose your strong english/french accent :) it will be no easy, but don't worry, if you are motivated we can do it!!

I can help you with grammar but also in communication, you can feel free to be yourself with me while speaking, I'm not a judgemental person, I'm friendly and my only purpose is to give you the possibility of learning my language.

Teaching Approach

Usually I use a communicative approach in teaching. For the first levels I encourage my students in speaking or repeating words or phrases I say about some communicative situations (telling your age, greetings, speaking about simple things such as weather, tastes in food, your family, your job or school, what do you like, easy descriptions, ect..)

Then I let them discover the grammatical rules with exercises during every lesson. For the upper levels I also use newspaper articles, songs and recipes, of course! There's nothing better than learning while doing something funny such as cooking or listen to an Italian song! I'm friendly but professional and my first purpose is to put you at ease and give you all the tools to speak italian.

If you have particular needs or interests don't hesitate to ask, We can find together a teaching method that suits you.

Im open to every kind of students, from teenagers to adults, it's always a pleasure for me meeting new people and teach them ITALIANO! it's a kind of cultural enrichment.

Such a great lesson with Caterina today learning about Italian verbs. Which I'm finding daunting but Caterina made me feel so comfortable sending me information before our lesson. She was super kind and helpful while having a laugh along the way.

Had a another great lesson from Caterina, I feel I'm learning a lot. Caterina adapts the lesson to suit your learning style which is great. I would highly recommend Caterina as your Italian teacher, I have my third lesson already booked :)
