About me

Do you like Italy?

I DO.

And I would like you to do the same through my stories, the sweet difficulty of italian language and the multitude of questions you will ask me about italian habits or secrets.

Are you of italian heritage?

Is your deepest desire to finally get in touch with your italian roots?

Most likely, you used to spend your holiday’s with italian grannies or your childhood was craddled by the melody of italian language or simply, you used to live here for a short/long period and you have been missing Italy like crazy.

Italian language is like poetry, in that it can bring to mind good memories, the smell of coffee, noisy crowded meals, everyday deeds fulfilled with care and joy, colorful markets and of course kind people that probably helped you in the street.

If you need a language guide and a “italianity” specialist, then i’m the person you are looking for.

Teaching Approach

I will try to awake and inspire your italian that you believe to be forgotten but is still floating in a remote corner of your brain, or just improve your spoken italian refining pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary.

We will choose together the topics of our lessons depending on your needs, interests and preferences.

We will work on newspaper articles, talk about a specific subject that you care about the most, analyse a song or an italian recipe, roleplay a typical everyday life situation, deepen the understanding of a grammatical rule you have struggled with or simply practise simple conversation.

The relevant material will be sent to you in advance to give you enough time to familiarise yourselfwith it.

Im an honest, easygoing and empathic person and my primary purpuse is to put you in the best condition to learn italian.

In addition to this, I am always available to answer questions that maybe giving you difficultly and make sure that you are supported during your journey into the Italian language.

I will also suggest you other resources such as websites, apps, movies, videos, books, games which can be used to help maintain what you have learned.

What I ask for in order of importance are:

- Good motivation

- Faith in me

- Ready ears

- Working brain

- Curiosity

- A notebook and a pen

If believe you posses some or all of these qualities of them, then probably you are the student I am looking for.

Ora vado a bere un caffè!!!!

I can feel the real progress in our lessons. Now we can speak 90% of time in Italian only switching to English to say something quickly to clarify or to add. It is really encouraging and motivating. Thank you Caterina!
