Teacher in Italian for Foreigners, German and English. Tour Guide in Piedmont.
I am a native Italian speaker, I have a degree in Foreign Languages and Literature with a specialization in German studies and I have a training in language teaching.
I speak German, English and French. For more than 20 years I have been teaching Italian to foreigners and German and English to Italians.
I taught Italian to foreign students of all ages from teens to senoirs, of different nationalities and at all levels from beginner to C2, both in group and in individual lessons. I have experience in preparing students for CILS and PLIDA Certifications at levels A2,B1,B2, C1. I have been an examiner for TELC B1 Certificate.
No matter what your motivation is to get closer to Italian, I work with you with great attention to your needs and your goals, effectively and funny in individual and small groups lessons.
I organize Italian language courses, CILS/PLIDA preparation courses, Business Italian courses, Italian&Plus courses and German courses.
During classes. great attention is placed on developing communication skills both oral and written. Trough varied learning materials you will improve your ability to speak and understand Italian in your daily life, at work in both formal (at work) and informal situations (at home, with friends) . Accuracy and fluency are also important goals to reach, so we will do the grammar and exercises to expand vocabulary, we will enjoy doing role-plays and dialogues in real life situations. To improve your ability to understand we will listen to native speakers, watch videos, and learn songs. According to the level, we will also read articles from newspapers and magazines in order to get acquainted with the Italian culture and social life.
The lessons are held in Piedmont, Turin or Alba and the Langhe, combined with cultural programs about art, food and wine tasting, cooking, at the student’s or at my home or through Skype, Zoom or other platforms.
If you want to learn German, my motto is Deutsch mit Spaß: German with fun. I offer German lessons to high school students or to adults who want to learn a language which appears to be difficult, but is actually fascinating.
I am a licensed tour guide to Turin, Alba, the Langhe and Piedmont and I can guide you to discover Piedmont, just for a one day or a weekend or more days holiday. Guided tours in Piedmont for 1 person, small or large groups.
